I bought a used 2004 Tacoma about 3 months ago. I love it but, it had/has some issues. I had to replace the shocks, replace some bulbs in the instrument panel, fix the CD player eject button, change the tumblers in the door locks (and the ignition cylinder), fix the after-market alarm, replace the windshield wipers, change the wheels, and I still need to fix the AC/heater control box. But my next thing is to fix is the horrible start-up noise that I think may be one of the belts.
I posted a video on YouTube of the start-up noise coming from the engine at...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKLAtrScDok
My plan is to fix all of the issues with this truck and then sell it in the Spring so I can upgrade to a 4-door Tacoma (will also be selling my 2008 Suzuki DL 650 to raise cash).
