2004 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 4dr Double Cab PreRunner V6 Rwd SB (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Well, I've owned my Tacoma for almost a year now and it's time to review it. I had wanted one for about two years and when I found out they were changing the style for the '05 I went in and bought an '04. I'll let Toyota work the bugs out of the new design before I give it a try. Toyota is good, but not perfect and the '04 is basically the same truck they have been building for 9 years. They've had lots of time to get it right. So, what did I get for my money? I got a vehicle that I can take my wife and 3 kids in to get groceries or I can take a few buddies and enough gear to go camping for a week. It's smaller size and high ground clearance allow me to go places where others can't.


Best Features

The overall driving experience is great and the fit and finish excellent. I am always amazed where this vehicle will go. I was worried that the back seats wouldn't be good for adults but once you get in through the small rear doors, it's fine. The bed is big enough for what I need.


Worst Features

I would have liked better gas mileage but this truck is almost 10 inches off the ground which must create a lot of drag. The clock position doesn't really bother me that much. The cruise control in most Toyotas I've been in are useless in hilly areas. It kicks down too fast. I don't use it.

Interior noise @ fuel economy would be the only negatives. Average 17 winter 19 summer. Was rated at 19 so I knew this going in.

Truck is high quality built and
designed. Runs well with good responsive

are of good design, with exception of
the clock placement. Solid construction
with dependability throughout


Best Features

power steering, windows and remote keyless entry along with heater and air conditioning are of excellent design and function.


Worst Features

Clock needs better location to be viewed from driver's seat.

Review

Had several Chevys, one Mazda (really a
Ford in Mazda clothing), and one Dodge
Ram. This truck is the best of the lot.
The fit and finish is amazing. Toyota
builds the best. The interior is a
little unfrendly, but after 1 year not
a rattle or creak anywhere. No other
manufacturer can say that, period. Gas
mileage is slightly better than
claimed, however my wife has a light
foot, and we have never towed. Adapts
well to the deserts on the west and the
mountains on the east.


Best Features

Fit and finish. Great looks, very smooth and pretty quiet.


Worst Features

Slight wind noise, and that damn clock! But they really made the 05's better as far as ergonomics. I wish I'd have waited, but love my truck!
