A little truck that gets job done
By DXL on


2004 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


The cab is a too small for big people.
Feel tired driving long distances
since the seat is not comfortable,
especially if without a speed control.
Small engine offers good fuel economy,
but the trade off is poor
accelloration. Most of my driving is
on freeway. It achieves 31 mpg if I
remove the tailgate and drive @70mph.
60mph gives 35mpg with no load. In
town driving gives 33mpg (this is just
for me because I normally drive at
above 45mph for 20 miles each weekday
without many stops.) I travel about
700miles each weekend. So far I didn't
have any problem at all for
78000miles. I do the routine
maintinance and are very careful about
fluid levels, etc.

Best Features

Good mechanical quality and reliability. Hand-crank windows. Key- locked fuel cover. Manual transmission. In short--simplicity: everything lasts for a long time.

Worst Features

Larger cab. Move throttle pedal so people with big foot don't hit the side when step on it. Move oil filter so it can be reached easily. Windsheld washer fluid should be sprayed romptly when the lever is pulled. My truck's wiper wipes the dry glass many times before the fluid comes out
