So many problems
By BrianWilliams on


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


I thought the vehicle (because it was
built by the Japanesse) would be of
high quality. Complete junk, exterior
trim is already peeling off,
transmission (torque convertor?)
struggles when excelerating and
decelerating on the highway with an
automatic and if I hear a mechanic at
the dealer say "thats a tacoma for ya"
one more time I'll smack him. Buyer
Beware on this type of engine, all the
problems have been engine and exterior,
nothing else seems to be wrong. Also
getting a pretty bad rattle at 25K and
it's leaking coolant, back to the
dealer again.

Best Features

Interior is actually pretty nice, also gets decent gas milage.

Worst Features

This engine SUCKS! Discontinue it, as I probabaly will never buy a vehicle from Toyota again.
