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


Review

Just trying to help all that are looking into purchasing a Tacoma. This truck is good over all, yes it does have its minor flaws in the design and seems to have common problems with all us owners. It works good for me since I am single and do quite a bit of hauling and driving. The gas mileage is good on highways but poor in town, the rattles that everyone is having, I too have up around the dash. The outside noise comes from the way the wind wraps around the side of the cab and not the rear wall. I still love this truck because it is reliable and is worth almost what I paid for it. One thing I hate is when I am braking and hit a bump, the anti-lock kicks in and causes me to slide a bit.


Best Features

4x4, good traction, easy to use (nothing is hidden) and is an all around good truck. Extremely bright headlights.


Worst Features

Since the truck has been redesigned, theres not much point in elaborating on improvements, however the clock location is bad on this truck.

Review

Never thought I'd buy anything "foreign" but I'm glad I did. This is one great truck and can actually be used like one.


Best Features

The truck has a four wheel drive shift lever instead of a cheap push button deal. (Sorry Chevy)


Worst Features

Gee I really can't think of anything I'm not satisfied with. Just a great truck.
