My 2002 Toyota Tacoma trd.

I bought my Toyota brand new in 2002 and never had any issues with it since I bought the trd addition making it heavy duty and rugged. I use it to go fishing on the beach where the 4×4 is needed and no problems getting stuck or stranded. It never let me down. I also use it to pull my 20 foot boat as well as launching and pulling it out of the water, again no problem with those tasks having the 6 cyl plenty of power.

It is a small truck that drives more like a car. A very comfortable ride.

It is a great small truck that drives more like a comfortable car. I have had it since 2002 but it only has 67, 000 miles on it. I can haul small loads and it has a crew cab so I can carry things like groceries and keep them in a locked environment. It is a great economy in miles and has a pretty straight body for it is age. It is held up very well over the years. I will keep it until it dies.

A greatly engineered product.

The pick-up has always started right up. It responds to my every action always accelerating with vim & vigor and stopping when it is supposed to. Its speed declines at an accepted rate then its brakes respond to my foot's pressure with precision. It handles like an exact wireless mouse on a clean mouse-pad. Simply put it is a well engineered vehicle. I just love it!
