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


Got my Taco in 2005 w/ 12k miles while visiting O.C CA. I consider it my first-born child. It has 50,200 on it now, and a set of spark plugs are the only thing I`ve put into it besides oil/lube changes. Timing belt this year due to age only. Has plenty of power for what you put in bed, small trailer. 26 mpg is about the best I can get on highway due to lack of cruz and the fact it drives out good around 75mph. My neighbor drives a 1996 base model @ work that has 550k last I saw. It`s on clutch #3, the u-joints in the steering & driveshaft are the other replaced items. Oil still needs no checking between 5k changes. If you maintain your Yota you can count on them for a good, long time. Word

Best Features

Crisp steering, good sheet metal curves, brakes, all good quality.

Worst Features

Painted ventshades, re-useable air filter, flowmaster muff, tonneau cover, tint strip on top of windshield. See my slightly modified 2004 Tacoma base model at www.trucktrend.com/readersrides
