2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

A great all around truck.The 4x4 with
TRD package works great off road.High
ground clearence,with skid plates
protecting vital organs.The locking
rear differential works great.The V6
has plenty of power,but sucks a little
moore gas than I thought it would.A bit
pricey.I think I payed to much for
mine.If you think you can get a good
deal on one,get it. don't hesitate.


Best Features

Locking rear differential with the TRD package.Almost a must have item for the serious off roader.I have used it several times in tight situations.It works great.

Review

This is my first Toyota. What a
pleasure to drive! Absolutely smooth as
silk. Solid ride but very comfortable
and rattle free. I love everything
about it!


Best Features

Looks and feel. Clock location is kinda funky but it is really no big deal. A pleasure to drive.


Worst Features

Addition of a sunglasses holder, cubby hole for loose change,cell phone,etc. in the center console. Floor mats that are heavier so they don't move around.

2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this truck this summer and thus
far I'm very happy with it. Solid,
reliable and well engineered truck.
For my purposes, the 2.4 litre engine
is just fine. I've used it to haul
lumber and other loads of junk to the
dump. Gas mileage has been
consistently at 23 mpg in city
driving. Haven't taken any highway
trips yet. Highly recommend this
truck.


Best Features

Crisp shifting 5 speed transmission, perfect seat height on 2WD model makes getting in and out comfortable and easy.


Worst Features

Definitely need to reposition the clock. Actually, why not incorporate clock into the radio like most vehicles?

Review

We looked at the Subaru Baja and Nissan
Frontier as well as the Ford Explorer
Sport Trac. At initial impression of
ride and interior, we both liked the
Ford and Subaru better, but chose the
Toyota because of its historically high
resale value. Interior cloth that does
not seem as durable or nice as our 1998
model. Both were SR5 models, I'm
assuming it was some cost cutting by
Toyota.


Best Features

Toyota Resale Value


Worst Features

Hypersensitive cruise control that surges 5+ MPH uphills and downshifts one or two gears and improve the quality of the interior cloth.
