Tacoma Base — It is a 4 cylinder, so it is terrible slow. The only great thing about this truck is fuel economy and reliability. I get 24 mpg mixed driving and i have never had anything go wrong with it. Since it is a toyota, it is incredibly reliable.

Pros: If you want a small truck that gets great gas mileage, buy something else.

Cons: It is tiny, suspension is very soft, and quite frankly, it is ugly.

Great Ride And Im Very Pleased. Dependable And Practical. Exactly What I Need — its a great everyday drive. its four door option is perfect for hauling buddies or extra cargo. the spray in bed-liner provides a sturdy durable bed that will carry anything from matresses and other moving necessities to what the truck was origionally bought for - a motorcycle!

Pros: comfortable practical ride

Cons: all trucks use more tha average gas. not necessarily a thrill to drive

Tacomas Fun On And Off Road — The build quality sucked. Which is why I sold it after the local dealership denied services. Found out later that I could have gone through Toyota of America as the dealership had had a lot of complaints at that time. All of the bells and whistles were included in this package. Locking rear axle, 4wd, optional passenger airbag for babies or off-roading and many other things I don't remember any longer. Now these features are sold separately. A 2004 or older sr5 tacoma is definitely the model to go with. The mileage was poor however. At 10mpg, I sold it. The vehicle had a lot of torque and would easily squeel the tires at starts. Very fun to drive. The wheel base is a bit long and made taking sharp corners a bit difficult.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Off roading made fun and easy

Cons: Warranty issues

Buy It If You Need A Smaller Pickup Truck And 4wd. — Gets 22mpg, strong V6 engine, 4wd with offroad package. Sound sounds great! comfort is good, quality is great. Put 110,000 miles on the truck and have only needed to change the battery. No complaints here other than the fact that the TRD offroad package makes the truck ride a little rough.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: if you drive offroad, have heavy snow. Great truck gets great mpg

Cons: No need to own a Offroad package if you dont use it, rides hard.

I Aint Never Getting Rid Of It — it is awesome off roadin in this truck bone stock. It is incredible what stock toyota parts will go through. Its an awesome year too. The last year of the model is usually the best and toyota hit it right this time.

Pros: its sporty but can hall alot and it looks good too

Cons: it may be too much for a person who has always had a two door coupe.

2004 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Trd — Performs above average and has a nice flow-master system. Build quality is amazing. This is a well built truck. Appearance is awesome. good combination of lift, tires, and rims. Cost is about that of an average car. About 16 avrg. mpg. This car is fun to drive and take on easy trails. I would recommend this truck as a good buy, and it holds its value.

Pros: Easy to drive and quite fun too!

Cons: Gas and changing the spark plugs.

Unstoppable. — Replace alternator after excessive mudding. Buy Duralast alternator from AutoZone so you can replace them over and over again for FREE!!

Pros: Goes just about anywhere.  Sounds nice with good exhaust.

Cons: Can be a bit slow.  Rattles from random places, not the best ride, but hey, it's a truck, so quit whining.

Trucks R Us — It's slow to accelerate, but once it does, you can feel the power. It's a bit noisy and the cab is a little on the small side, despite being 4 door. You also have to get used to handling with the truck bed. It's a smaller truck, but can handle large loads.

Pros: V6, 4 door, durability, versatility

Cons: acceleration, size, gas mileage

Will Get The Small Jobs Done! — For a small truck, it does everything you need it to. With the V6, you plenty of power with fuel economy at about average. Sound system is impressive for a stock system (although I added 2, 12" subs). Breaks are a little touchy. Overall a very good investment for a small pick-up.

Pros: Great options, handles good, stereo is awesome.

Cons: Breaks work too good, Interior could be bigger.  Fuel use could be less
