"The only negative that I would ever give this little pickup is the fact that it rides rough. That is to be expected when you get a 1/2 ton rating in a little truck. You can't have a smooth ride and stiff enough suspension to pack the load."
"bought ext cab in '99', dealer installed ac....had 75K on it then...up to 187k in '07' I just replaced the clutch-this being the only major repair other than 4 alternators-1 starter- 3 sets of tires- 2 batteries & 1 broken leaf spring...need to remember it's not 4wd...does great off road without any MUD/SNOW/ROCKS..."
"My Tacoma PreRunner is now four years old and is just getting broken in. Just fill with gas, change the oil occasionally and go. Tows 2,500-3,000 pounds with minimal effort. Gets better fuel mileage now than ever. Never been stuck, although it's only a 2WD, even in the blizzard of 2007. The ground clearance, coupled with a few sand bags, and this truck zips through the snow like a champ. Can't say enough good things about it."
"Seriously. Best Vehicle ever. I love this truck. i would recommend the tacoma to anyone. Everyone who has owned one that i talked to online and in person has had the same if not better experiences than i. thanks toyota"
"these trucks put the energizer bunny to shame, it just wont stop going. 1998 with 270,000. miles. this truck has been put through some tough tests. the most i done was oil, new tires and spark plugs."
