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


I sold my first Toy pickup after driving it for 22 years! The 2004 truck is very nice too. Rides good, handles well, nice fuel economy, and no mechanical problems yet after two years and about 26000 miles. Manual tranny is a bit "whiny" in 1-3 gears. Other than chugging up steep hills with the small four, I'm pretty happy. About 23 mpg in town, 28 on the freeway.

Best Features

Comfortable seating. Extra cab. Nice dash lighting at night. Quality feel to controls. Sliding rear window for air circulation.

Worst Features

Dash clock is hidden by the steering wheel. Bed tiedowns are inadequate.
