    2002 Toyota Tacoma - (M5) 4x4 Xtracab

    Pros: The reliability and quality.

    Cons: What's with the placement of the clock?

    Advice: Buy it. I'm not wealthy so I wasn't sure spending the extra money on the Toyota was the right thing to do...but it WAS! It's worth it. Get, at least, the x-tra cab.

    I love it! I KNEW Toyota wouldn't let me down. It feels so solid...it seems as if it's begging me to test it! I'm sure it's gonna last at least as long as my previous Toyota: 11 years!

    2002 Toyota Tacoma - 4x4 Double-Cab

    Pros: Toyota Quality

    Cons: Driver seat does not have enough adjustments.

    Advice: BUY! You can't beat the reliability, price, performance and resale value!

    I test drove this truck and within 1000 yards of the dealer, knew I'd buy it. I've tried to get into American trucks (Chevy and Ford) but cannot beat the Toyota. Nice ride, super quiet, a lot of power, and the feel of quality!

    2002 Toyota Tacoma - Base (M5) 4x2 Xtracab

    Pros: I'm glad it has a warranty

    Cons: The service department

    Advice: Buy a Honda

    I bought a new tacoma 2 weeks ago and the check engine light just came on, and the engine runs rough. All of the plastic wiring duct has been taped, and the tape is coming off all over the engine. I don't think the dealer really cares. I drove a Honda for nine years and toyota's quality isn't even close.

    2002 Toyota Tacoma - (M5) 4x4 Xtracab

    Pros: Smooth Ride for a Truck

    Cons: Little expensive

    Advice: Tocoma doesn't lose it's value...Trust me I know!

    I owned a 2001 Toyota Tacoma for about a year, before I rolled it. But thanx to the tough structure of the truck, the cab stayed in tact (Hense why I'm still here writing this). Needless to say...the truck was totalled but the value of the tacoma did not depreciate that much, so I was able to put a pretty sizeable down payment on a 2002 model. Thanx Toyota!!!

    2002 Toyota Tacoma - 4x2 Double-Cab

    Pros: Toyota build quality, reliability, ruggedness, and dependability

    Cons: My garage can't fit six more of these, one for every day of the week.

    Advice: Toyota quality and reliablity won't let you down like the Junk made by Ford/Chevy/Dodge

    Toyota Tacoma is The MOST Reliable truck money can buy! The legendary Toyota quality and reliability is Worth the price. You can see and feel the high quality in the Tacoma. It won't leave you at the side of the road like Ford, Chevy, or Dodge. Don't waste your hard-earned money on any of that Junk. In a couple years any Ford/Chevy/Dodge will be sitting on jackstands on your front lawn, broken down with mechanical problems and recalls. Save yourself the trouble, get yourself a Toyota. You'll be glad you did.

    2002 Toyota Tacoma - (M5) 4x4 Xtracab

    Pros: TRD package

    Cons: price price price

    Advice: if you want a true off road truck this is it

    i have a 4x4 xcab 4banger toy with the TRD package with the locking dif. Let me tell you that this 4banger truck goes places most Z71's and other full size trucks could only dream. It's so refined and smooth yet it can play in the rough stuff too. It's truely a swiss army knife. It's priced high but i belive you get what you pay for as I owned a GMC and it was a hunk of junk.
