2003 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this truck because I was moving out west and wanted something to get me through any kind of conditions. Driven cross country several times with no problems at all. Very reliable and stylish, I get compliments on it all the time. I was worried the cost was too high but I haven't regretted it for a minute since my purchase. I will drive this truck til the wheels fall off!


Best Features

CD player and stock stereo system are both very nice


Worst Features

Back seats are not comfortable at all and a temperature and compass feature would be nice.

2003 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

You'll love this truck! I had always wanted a tacoma and this truck exceeded my expectations. I've used it for hauling loads to the dump and hauling feed with no problem. Clean it up and it's perfect for cruising around town. "The chicks dig it!"


Best Features

Four wheel drive. If you have the choice, get the 4x4, you will not be sorry!


Worst Features

The one problem with the 2003 Tacoma is the clock on the center console is too far to the driver's side. I often have to lean to the right to see the clock because the steering wheel blocks the view of the clock.

2003 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Outstanding vehicle, overall good quality, very user friendly. 21 MPG average with a v6 5 speed. Excellent safety features as well. Plenty of power, very responsive acceleration. Overall good price. A good looking "beefy" truck!


Best Features

Auto 4wd, airbags, rear differential lock. Vehicle Intrusion Detection.


Worst Features

The suspension is a little softer than the previous year Toyota, When they offer the off-road package the should put light bars and roll bars on it.

Review

I had always wanted a Tacoma,
unfortunately I could never afford one
until now. I started out about 3 years
ago with my first Truck a 1999 Ranger.
While this is a decent truck to start
out with, I still wanted my Tacoma. So
when I finally decided that I could
afford one I went down to the Toyota
dealer and bought a 2003 2.7L 5-Speed
4WD extended cab. It has loads more
power then my Ranger(2.5L) as well as
plenty of torque. While it is not a race
engine, it still has plenty of power for
what I need to do. I couldn't see
wasting my money on a Hemi just to
accelerate faster and get 8-10 MPG. The
4WD is superior to any other brand of
truck, way better than the ranger.


Best Features

The 4WD is amazing, and yes a 4 cylinder can pull a Hemi out of a ditch when it gets stuck(I live in Ky it gets quite muddy and wet in the winter) and look good doing it. Plenty of ground clearance, cheaper then a New Dakota. Legendary Toyota reliability


Worst Features

Put the dang clock somewhere else. My steering wheel blocks it and I have to look around it to see it. I am not sure if they have fixed this on the 05 model yet. No other major improvements, it is a great truck!!! I will buy another when the time comes.
