Good, no frills, work truck.

2003 Toyota Tacoma Base

I have had no problems with my truck since I bought it 1 year ago. It does not leak. It does not rattle. Nothing ever seems to go wrong. I have the 5 speed manual transmission. It shifts smooth and moves fairly quick but definitely not fast. Payload is fair, obviously it can not perform as a modern truck but it does well for what it was designed for. Fuel economy is good. I average about 25mpg driving pretty hard. 87 gas. Nothing to complain about except perhaps handling. 2wd, 5 lug trucks are a bit soft feeling and can be a handful when pushed to their limit. Overall, very satisfied with the truck; no problems.

Perfect Pickup Truck When You Don't Actually Want A Pickup Truck

2003 Toyota Tacoma Base

My Toyota Tacoma is really reliable. I hardly ever have engine problems and it gets good gas mileage. However, because it is an older make, its paint is coming off. Throughout the years, I've had to upgrade various things like windshield wipers and the stereo system. But this car is extremely reliable and will get you where you need to go.

It is been wonderfully reliable and has almost 200,000 miles on it.

2003 Toyota Tacoma Base

My truck has made it to almost 200,000 miles with minimal issues. It is a wonderful little truck that is extremely reliable! It is very comfortable for me because I am very small and I can get my seat high enough in this model. It is a very old truck so it is not up to date on all of the cool features but it has a nice radio/sound system.

Good solid vehicle. Very little rust and have done very little maintenance.

2003 Toyota Tacoma Base

Great vehicle reliable. Very little maintenance. Just oil changes. 4 cylinder good mileage. Has a cab and holds what I need in the bed. I would recommend Toyota and the results from the vehicle. I would by Toyota again and would by a tacoma for its reliability and performance.
