2001 2 Door Pre-runner Sr5 Review — I love the look, how it rides and drives, its dependability and mpg. I do not care for the small, uncomfortable flip seats in the back and lack of leg room. I would recommend the 4 door with bench seat in back if using for a family vehicle.

Well Made And Reliable — There isn't anything I didn't like about this truck except that it was bought before it was known that our family would grow. Now that it has we have to get something bigger. If it weren't for that, we'd be keeping it until it disintegrating.

Pros

Mechanically very sound. Pulls loaded cargo trailer with no problems.

Cons

Inconvenient manual door lock and clock locations for driver. Very high insurance premium for this truck compared to other more expensive vehicles we own. Rough ride.

Excellent For A Small 4x4 Pickup — Very reliable, plenty of pep if you need it. Good visability. With on 60k miles driven so far this truck will last me a very long time or be passed on to a grandson. Much easier to maneuver and park in tight places than full size.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Nice Dependable Truck — There are very few things I dislike about this truck. The overall look and appearance is great and the vehicle being 11 years old is in good condition. The only replacement that has been done as far as out of pocket expense was the window wiper motor.

Awesome !! :d — Best truck I've ever owned ! I have always driven a 90' pickup before buying this truck because I didn't like the looks of the Tacomas when they first came out !! Glad I changed my mind. As long as you don't need to tow much , this is an excellent little truck an respectable as far as gas mileage goes !

Best Truck I've Ever Owned ! — It took a long time to get the paperwork for it , but it was well worth the wait ! Glad I bought it and it's been a blast to drive ! Hasn't missed a beat since I left San Antonio with it ! Universal Toyota is a great dealership to buy a vehicle from & Denis Joseph is a wonderful salesperson !

Awesome...nothing can beat a Toyota

Cons

the only con is that i don't have more toyotas

Can't Go Wrong — Toyota is the best car/truck on the road..they last longer and have fewer problems than any other car/truck i have ever owned. Just ask any parts store.. " what kind of auto do you sell the most parts for?"...answer "Jeep" then ask "what do you sell the least parts for?" they will say "Toyota".
