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


Cannot drive when snowing as transmission linkage freezes in Drive. Have to carry cement blocks in bed so I can block wheels when frozen. Have to wait til temp is above freezing to get into N or P to start. Took to dealer. They didnt fix it - just thawed it out and gave it back to me. Just got out of shop as a rock hit the underside of truck on a dirt road and punctured the gas tank ($700 to fix). I own a $30K 4WD pickup that cannot be driven on dirt roads or in the snow - AWFUL.

Best Features

Other than the facts you cannot drive down a dirt road or in the snow - there are no overriding features which endear me to this pile of junk.

Worst Features

Build a 4WD vehicle that can be driven on a dirt road or in the snow.
