2004 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


This is a great truck! I chose to buy the smaller Tacoma with the 2.4 4-cyl for better gas mileage. I calculate my mpg at every fill-up and consistently get 22-23 mpg. This includes 50%hwy/50% city driving. I am pretty easy on the pedal so that makes a difference. The auto trans is a little sluggish in city driving. It is geared pretty low so it can pull what it's rated for. I just wish it had a little more "get- up." Extended cab was not made for people. It is best for storing tools or groceries. I hate that I have to sell it but with a growing family it doesn't have enough room. This truck has really held its value!!

Best Features

-OD on/off button -SR5 package -Airbag on/off switch -3 cupholders -comfortable armrest -comfortable lumbar seats -when you turn the truck off it automatically turns off your lights even if you leave the switch on -bed is low to the ground for easy loading/unloading

Worst Features

-little more HP -3rd door for extended cab
