    I just got an '03 Tacoma yesterday. I am very excited. I thought I would get on here since I own an '89 Supra and am on the supra forums sites. Glad to meet everyone.:wave:

    So what basics should I know? I don't know jack, really. It's 2WD SR5 V6 Double Cab. I know that it is missing some rubber "bushings" where the bed sits on. Also, my temp gauge is a lil above the middle, but it never goes past that. My mechanic said it just needs a new temp gauge. It has red coolant, from toyota I assume. What kind of preventive maintenance should I get done? It has 51,170 miles.

    Hey man... i just bought an 01 Taco myself..

    i have learned that there was ball joint recall for some of these 2nd gen Tacomas. you may want to check you VIN with a local toy dealership and see if you fall into the repair catagory.

    Hey I called the number but it only mentioned a recall involving tundras and sequoias with the lower ball joints. Also, isn't the '03 a 1st Gen?

    Oh BTW, does anyone have a carfax account? I just want to make sure what kind of stuff shows up about my truck. If anyone doesn't mind, thank you.

    My 2001 Taco's VIN was not in the ball joint recall, but, I am eligible for the Fuel System recall. I am making an appt at my dealership to do the upgrade next week.
