Decent — Could use another gear it pulls a little too hard on the interstate above 60. a little more space would be nice. I want a four door in the future. Great little truck though around town. Very reliable. A few squeaks and rattles but over all not bad.

Pros: color combination

Cons: a taller 6th gear,

You Better Love The Toyota Tacoma — It's the girliest looking truck you've ever seen, but that means it's perfect for me! Good thing it has amazing brakes because I follow too close and brake too late. The handling is extremely responsive to my crazy driving. The acceleration isn't what I would like it to be, but I've never gotten a speeding ticket! :)

Pros: great brakes,4 doors,sits high

Cons: short bed,not enough interior storage

2003 Tacoma Prerunner Double Cab — The ride is stiff & boxy. The truck has plenty of torque, especially considering it's not a 4x4. Gas mileage varies between 16 to 19 mpg, having the tonneau cover on the truck bed helps. It was fun to take off-road, when I had the mud tires on it. Even with cruise control on long trips, you still have to take stretching breaks. I've added the Michelin LTX/MS street tires which make handling much better. Just had to replace the timing belt at 115k miles as a preventative measure - a procedure that can cost upwards of $350 or more.

Pros: Torque for climbing and driving off road. Decent turn radius.

Cons: Boxy & stiff ride. MPG.

I Get The Whole 'jeep Thing', That's Why I Bought A Toyota — Just the right size to fit in the tight streets of a large city but big enough to haul all your stuff. Perfect truck to load up and go camping with your friends. This one has the 2.7L I-4 mated to a 5-speed manual. Even with the small wheels and tires, it still has more ground clearance than most stock 4x4s.

Pros: Looks
Size
Reliability
Image
700lbs lighter than the equivalent 2005-and-up Tacoma
Handles winter weather with confidence

Cons: Turning circle
Seats
Not enough power if your hard on it but not enough fuel economy when you're easy on it.  I knew that when I bought it.  It's the price that's paid for the versatility and it's worth it.

Nice Small Truck — Perfect for biking, snowboarding, and everything else I was doing in VT...I would have kept it longer if I did not run it into a guard rail at 55 mph on the North Way in upstate NY.

Pros: Build Quality

Cons: not enough power

2003 Toyota Tacoma Standard Cab LBReview

Tough Lil' Go-getter — Like the looks both inside and out. Nothing flashy or overly exciting but elegant in its simplicity. Cabin is a little cramped for taller people and defintely isn't a carpooling vehicle but is good for hauling reasonable loads good distances with one or two passengers. Engine is fairly powerful for its small size but is definitely not as strong as some larger engines. Gas mileage could be better for the size of the vehicle. Has off-roading capabilities even with only rear-wheel drive (especially rally-style tracks, not so much in mud) with good ground clearance and a capable stock suspension package in pre-runner trim. Vehicle is now 5 years old and still runs and looks brand new.

Pros: Quality package, everything you need but nothing you don't, durable vehicle

Cons: Slightly underpowered, could get better gas mileage, 4-wheel drive on standard cab short-bed would be sick

Takes Anything I Throw At It — I have raced this truck off and on for a few years now. Every mile I drive is very hard on it. It never lets me down.

Pros: Great gas mileage, reliable

Cons: Some interior bits rattle

Great Truck — What can I say? It's a Toyota. Good balance between 4WD capabilities, being a truck, and a highway vehicle.
