2003 Toyota Tacoma 2WD Base Regular Cab 2.4 Liter from North America
The Toyota Tacoma is great economical transportation
Nothing serious has gone wrong with the vehicle.
The only engine issue I had was a "check engine" light on because of a loose gas cap.
The parking brake cable kinks when it's released, and there is a small rain leak around the passenger foot area.
This truck is perfect and reliable transportation in all weather conditions. It doesn't have a lot of features and options, but it does everything I need a vehicle to do. It has power steering for easy handling, and high ground clearance for driving through heavy snow.
Fuel mileage is great. I recently installed Bosch Platinum/Iridium (4 electrode) spark plugs, and began using synthetic oil with 10% Duralube. Mileage increased from 26 to 33 MPG on the highway. The only thing I don't like about the design is the cheap plastic parts used in the interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
