I LOVE my Taco
By tacofans on


2003 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Double Cab PreRunner V6 Rwd SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


I loaded it up 1100 lbs. of bricks, stones, and playsand, and it hummed along with no complaints. I love the V6. In town gas mileage is great, between 19-20 mpg. Highway within the 20-22 mpg range. Best tank was 21.85 mpg with 80% hwy, 20% in-town. Just keep the speed below 69 mph for better gas mileage (but I did go 75-80 mph from time to time). Ride is not bad at all for a truck although I would change the factory tires when they wear out for better traction.

Best Features

Compact footprint and yet with room for my family of 4. I chose to buy this last generation of compact taco instead of the newer midsize ones. Ultra reliable. A little truck that can do.

Worst Features

The clock. Cruise control kept gear-hunting on inclines but I don't use it often.
