1996 Toyota Tacoma 2 Dr STD 4WD Extended Cab SBReview

Great Truck. Durable. — I like this truck a lot. It is mechanically durable and dependable which are my priorities. The 4wd is also great and it is very capable in the snow and off-road. I wish the 4 cylinder had a little more power. I wanted a 4 cylinder to get better gas mileage than the V-6 but I still only get around 17 in the city and 21 on the highway, and it doesn't accelerate very happily. I'm not sure what MPG the V-6 gets. The truck also looks good and tough.

Owner for 2 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Pros: Tough, durable.  Off-road capability.  

Cons: Weak 4 cylinder motors.

Tacoma — I would recommend for work and casual driving. Fun to drive and long lasting. Great for first time drivers (especially teens). Not too expensive to own or insure. Inside comfortable. Amazing work... Been driving this car for about 10 years

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Decent MPG. Very reliable... 370k miles and still runs well.

Cons: Nothing too bad.

There Is A Reason Tacomas Hold Their Value By Tacosell

This is my third Tacoma and the best one yet. I was going to wait for the 2016 redesign but there are too many changes and a first year model needs to be beta tested. Maybe a lease would work but I wo... Read More

The only things I don't like about this truck are very minor. It would be nice to have a light in the glove box. It would be nice to have intermittent wipers. Other than that this truck served my p... Read More
