I Loved This Truck — Did you ever trade in an automobile, glance back across the dealership parking lot and feel a sense of loss? I know ridiculous right? It's just a truck. But that's how I felt when I traded her in after ten years. Maybe it was the places it took you, or the things you did 'in' and out of it...(yeah)..not sure. But I still look for old White 4WD pre-2007 Toyota Tundra‚Äôs on the roads and wish I had one again.

Wont Own Another — After buying the truck every one had an opinion and it was not good. First 2 months were ok, then the motor started knocking and tossed a rod. Bought replacement motor and 3 years later both rear wheel seals, bearings whole front axle and electrical nightmare. Its a good truck for a person who likes to own a truck and not use it for a truck. Truck is rated for 1/2 ton, and I use it. Truck poorly held up and I cant wait to get back into a real truck. I see the super duty fords ride rough and will take a beating. The worst review is it rides rough, Well that's grate. I wanted a TRUCK not another car!

Awesome Truck — This is a great truck with great reliability. It has a V8 that offers great power and towing ability while still being a comfortable everyday driver. The gas mileage is about 16 MPG which is not too bad. The truck sits up pretty high but still handles really well and the brakes are good too. The looks have withstood the test of time with it still being a great looking truck compared to even the new models out today. Highly recommended!

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.

Thumbs Up. — I like everything about it. Highly reliable. Toyota sure did a great job of backing and paying for the frame and other parts replacement. Otherwise no rust anywhere else, it has always run like a charm. I have gotten a lot of compliments on the truck.

Great Truck, very reliable, plenty of power, and looks incredible

Cons

I'd say the worst thing about the truck is it's gas mileage.

True Love — I love the truck all together. Have never had any major issues that I could not work out myself. The anti-lock brakes work great, I have never had my tires lock up. Plenty of power to pull a camper. all around a great truck.

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.

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

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.
