Pros

Strong, capable towing package. Reliable and fun.

Cons

Fuel efficiency isn't great. It has a heavy frame so it drains the tank fast.

We Love Our Toyota Tundra. — We have loved our tundra since we bought it and never regretted the purchase. maintenance has been costly, but she has continued to run like a dream. She has been to the east coast and back twice and showed no wear from it. If you take care of your toyota it will take care if you.

It's A Great Truck. Never Breaks Down. — I love the stepside body. It's very comfortable and great to spend time in. The expensive bed lid is very impractical and limits what you can load and it leaks, but it does look cool. I liked it so well I bought another one.

Would Buy Again. — This truck has perfect get up and go. It gives everythig a V8 should and more. The build is stable with a comfortable ride and low vibrations. We have had to make no repairs. The apperance is good with quality paint and body. Surprisingly the gas mileage is good getting an average of 16 in town and 22 on the highway. I love driving this truck not only for the looks but for the power under the hood. It's perfect for fun and work.

Pros

Roomy and Comfortable, V8, JBL Synthesis out of the Factory, Personal Upgrades, Toyota...

Cons

Not 4WD (I've gotten stuck a few times), back seat, and guzzles gas (but not nearly as much as other V8s I've gotten 18 mpg highway before, most can only get about 14 highway)

25

Awesome — I wish mine was a 4WD but otherwise it's very nice. I've got leather interior with a JBL Synthesis Factory upgrade (JBL Factory speakers w/ a factory amp) but I'm going to rip that out and install all JBL Power series sometime soon. Roomy interior, unless you're in the back seats... but still manageable, unlike ford or dodge. Black with chrome highlights, chrome nerf bars, Rhino-lining, Altezza Taillights, V8, and it's a Toyota. As long as you keep up the regular maintenance it'll last over 400,000 miles (I have a friend who has one like that)

Great Truck. Easy To Maintain And Drive. — The Toyota Tundra is a great truck. I am going to buy another one only with a full back seat. In my line of work, I really need more room in the back inside the cab. Toyota has been a good line for me.
