2004 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


After I took my new 2004 Tacoma home I
noticed the bed wasn't level (left side
over 1/2 inch lower than the right)and
took it to Toyota of Puyallup for
maintenance. Their first corrective
action was to inflate the left rear
tire to 34 lbs., instead of 29 lbs.. I
wouldn't buy that. A Toyota factory
representative "advised that up to 3/4-
inch discrepancy in height is
acceptable and no adjustments will be
made under warranty". Refused to
consider defective shocks, springs,
assembly, loose or miss aligned u-bolts
or noncompatable components. Where has
the vaunted Toyota quality gone? Hello

Best Features

Design looks good and all components function as advertised. Good paint job. No squeeks, rattles or noises.

Worst Features

Better quality control. Radiator was replaced as it was damaged during assembly. Molding not properly installed and the front bumpers are ragged at both edges. Will actually cut you fingers like a saw. At least make the overload springs the same length.
