It drives as good as my 2000 Tundra

Fold down back bench seats, handling is very good, you would never dream it was a truck!


Worst Features

Insulation under hood to lessen motor noise, noise is not loud but could be quieter

Review

Bought new 2004 Tacoma 4 x 2 automatic
2.4 cyl SR5 ext. cab
Very unhappy, poor power, 2 pc. drive
shaft clunks when you accelerate hard,
dealer service department, nothing we
can do. rated at 21-26 mpg. best I
have gotten is 21 even on highway.
If a/c is on, loose speed going up a
incline, do to poor power. Don't
waste your time. It won't be in my
garage long!!!


Best Features

All Toyotas have great paint. Good resale, important to me, since mine will be for sale soon.


Worst Features

Too numerous to mention

Review

Bought my truck in May of
2004....researched and test drove it
for about 2 weeks. could not be
happier with it. toyota is the king of
building a reliable vechicle. the
prerunner looks great, has great
handling and all the mumbo jumbo of a
crappy ride is CRAP. it has an awesome
ride for a truck and u cannot top the
offroad capability....espsecially with
the TRD package which includes the
blistein shocks for a more stiffer
ride.the interior looks excellent as
well..i have the radient red color so
the tan cloth looks good. the
transmission shifts sooo smoothly and
the V6 pumps out almost 200 horses so
it does have great power for its size.
you can't beat the quality of a toyota
truck


Best Features

The exterior is soo stylish...the rear sliding window cools off the cab nicely when its just a little to cold for the A/C. the cruise control is as smooth as any other vechicle ive been in. great stock stereo system, it even has tweeters! also the truck has 6 cupholders!


Worst Features

there is only one thing that toyota messed up on in this generation of the tacoma....as you have read it is the digital clock which is blocked by the steering wheel when you view it from a normal driving position. you also may want to consider the new 05 model year, other than that go buy a toyota!

Review

This is the third 4WD truck I've
owned. My first was a Ford Ranger
which turned out to be a lemon. My
second was a Dodge Dakota, which I
loved, and owned for 12 years. So far
I like this Tacoma a little better than
my Dakota. It is easy and fun to
drive, and a very comfortable ride. I
just hope that it turns out be as
dependable as the Dakota.
