Toyota Double Cab...a great little Truck

Reliable, low maintenance, an all around great vehicle...what can I say, it's a Toyota! I recommend the 4x4 double cab. It's comfortable for 4 adults, has plenty of power, is very versatile,great for hauling and towing and fits well in the garage. The V6 is great but it can be a little thirsty as it gets a fairly steady 20 mpg

The vehicle is the perfect size, and it is so cute!

I love the size of my truck. My extended cab Toyota is big enough and high enough off the ground that I feel completely safe, but it is small enough that it is fairly easy to park. One thing I do not like about the vehicle is that the gas mileage is not as great as cars, but most trucks in general have bad gas mileage.

- Katie W

Zero anxiety every time I have to be somewhere.

Sole owner for 15 plus years. Very reliable, starts up every time I start it. Light maintenance, just do the basics, tune ups, oil changes, tire rotations. Have done the 90000 mile service, and am getting close to the 20000 mile service. Hope this is the last vehicle I ever own.

Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
03V146
Summary:
On certain double cab pickup trucks, during side impact NCAP testing, a flange at the rear end of the double cab body deformed and contacted the fuel inlet hose that connects the fuel filler pipe and fuel tank, resulting in damage to the fuel inlet hose. This damage could result in fuel leakage, which could result in a fire in the presence of an ignition source.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will install a fuel hose protector on the body flange. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during June 2003. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
