Fantastic Truck! — Truck was well taken care of and was never in the shop beyond normal maintenance. Powerful and safe with great acceleration. Fun truck to drive and handles great. Great interior look with plenty of room. Very comfortable on short or long trips.

Great Value For The Price — Very fuel efficient for a v8, great looking truck, will work rite for you if you require a small truck for your job and also have a family. Two vehicles in one. So not a bad place to put your hard earned money.

The 1st Generation Tundra Represents A Great Value. — After a year and about 5,000 miles --we bought the truck to have as a 3rd vehicle-- I have nothing bad to say about the truck. The 4.7 V8 never leaves me wanting a bigger engine (it sounds great w/ the Flowmaster muffler, too). Gas mileage isn't great...but, it isn't bad either. We average about 15 MPG. Build quality in the interior is solid. There aren't very many cheap trim pieces; the overall feeling is of a truck that is put together well. Exterior build quality is impressive as well. The front seats are plush and very comfortable, however, I do wish that there was more lumbar support. The back seats are small and uncomfortable for adults (the backrest is too upright), though our kids fit fine and without any complaints. I think that the styling of the truck will stand the test of time well. It's almost 10 years old now and it does not look dated. Our truck has the TRD Package which lends a tough appearance. I would really like to take the truck off-road to see what it is capable of. Deep snow does not faze it at all. I do wish that the truck had a full-time 4WD system, though. We haven't had to do anything to repair the truck, even though it has almost 98,000 miles on the odo. Service is inexpensive and replacement parts seem to be as well. I think that the 1st generation Tundra represents a good value in the used truck market. I would recommend one to anyone.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Love The Tundra — I've put this truck through it's paces and I love it - 15 cars that I've owned and this one is one of the top 3! It has the ride of a car and can tow anything you put behind it! The Extra-Cab is a wonderful size and holds 4 people with ease.

Pros

lots of power, great looks, pretty fast, great breaks, reliable, few mechanical problems.

Cons

brakes wear out very quickly, gas gussler, takes for ever for engine to warm up,
which means the heater takes forever to warm up too.  AC controls a little flimsy.

Best Truck Ever!!!!!!! — This was my first car. I love it! It is currently being driven by my little brother, I hope to buy it back from my father when I graduate college.

It's A Toyota! — The Tundra is a great truck. I wasted my money on the extended warranty. I have had nothing but a positive experience with this truck. It has plenty of space and handles like a stable sedan. I love my Tundra.

Pros

Great tracking, low maintenance, 160,000 and never a problem.

Reliable Truck, Low Cost To Maintain. — I have owned a 2007 Tundra Crew Max, a 2005 Tacoma, and this 2002 Tundra is as good a handling vehicle as the others. It is very sturdy and reliable. The CD player only holds one CD at a time, but I can live with that. 4WD at the push of a button. Great truck.

Good Riding Truck But Weak Spots — above stated.OK. I guess I had it all bottled up and it came out on the wrong line..Any 4.7 v8 will have this problem. I believe they were redesigned in around 2007 with a 5.7 engine. hopfuly without this electric throttle body.I have no other complants besides these 2 complaints.

Great overall truck, turns heads.

Acceleration could be slightly better.

2002 Ivan Stewart Tundra — Acceleration could use some improvement but other than that this is a great truck! We upgraded the breaks so it now stops on a dime. Build quality is amazing. Best of all it's one of the rare Ivan Stewart Tundra's that came straight from the factory. Currently has a three inch lift on 33's. This truck is ALWAYS turning heads!
