2004 Toyota Tacoma with a 3 inch suspension lift and oversized tires.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Base

I really love my 2004 Toyota Tacoma. I have never had any issues with it. I bought it used as my first vehicle when I started driving in 2013. It has been extremely reliable. I get the oil changed approximately every 5000 miles. Toyotas that were made prior to 2005 are notorious for having a frame that rusts through. My Toyota does not show any excessive signs of rust, at least no more than a typical vehicle that is 15+ years old. The truck is a 4wd, and I live in an area where it snows periodically during the winter. The 4wd in the truck is amazing. I can go out with confidence in snow that most people would be scared to venture out in. Overall I love my truck and plan to keep it for many more years.

Reliable but needs some TLC

2004 Toyota Tacoma Base

I love my truck. Its old, but it's reliable. As long as In continue to take care of it and show it some love, I know it will continue to be reliable for many years. However, even though it's reliable, it does have its issues. The front lights need to be replaced, and the ac is broken, which for living in Florida, that's a huge issue. It's also finicky when trying to crank it up. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries rk get it to turn over. But overall I love it and wouldn't trade it for the world.

My trusty little work truck

2004 Toyota Tacoma Base

I have a Tacoma 2004 single cab 4x4 4 cylinder that I bought used and have owned for 3 years now. The truck is perfect for work being its a 4 cylinder gas mileage is great going back and forth from home. The only downside I guess is after putting 100k miles on the truck the engine starts throwing oil, I don't know if that's a me issue or the truck, but other than that I have had no issues with it.

This truck is a 4 x 4. It has great lower gears for off road trails.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Base

I have had this vehicle from brand new. It has almost 190,000 miles. I have the regular maintenance done. I have not had any problems to speak of. I have also taken this vehicle to do some easy to moderate off roading. It has done very well. The lower gears make getting over or around very easy. The truck does great on regular roads as well. It is comfortable enough for long roads trips too.

2004 Toyota Tacoma is still going!

2004 Toyota Tacoma Base

2004 Toyota Tacoma, 5 speed manual transmission drives very well. I drive it to and from work daily, great gas mileage. The biggest issue I have is the driver side front turn signal goes out and it is a wiring issue. I can replace the bulb and it may work for a while but then goes out again. I will drive this vehicle until it does not go any more. It has almost 350000 miles and still going!

It is red with one headlight.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Base

It was a very good truck, very reliable still is. Just seems like one thing after another needs to be fixed. It is the passenger door, it got jammed and now it will not even open. I have to crawl out the driver side it is a pain but as far as efficient for what we use it for and reliable it is great.

15 year old vehicle but drives like new.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Base

for at 15 year old vehicle, this thing drives like a dream. Great vehicle to invest in. it has over 186 thousand miles on it and it still drives like a good truck. Now it is a light truck so it doesn't have much weight in the rear, but that is an easy fix with some sandbags or cinder blocks.

A great truck for anyone and everyone

2004 Toyota Tacoma Base

That truck has lasted me five years with minimal problems, never been stuck, and always gets me where I need to go. I love that truck more than some of my family members. I hope to get it to three hundred thousand miles. I got it with one hundred ninety-two thousand miles on it.
