I Think It Is The Best First Car A Kid Can Have If Your Looking For Something Reasonable. — I like the reliability as well as the powerful engine that it has. You can pretty much use it for anything. A work truck or a ranch truck and would be a great first car! Thank you - Samuel Sterling Mackie

Pros

My favorite style before toyota switched.  Love the natural sound of Toyota engines.  Love the 4x4.  And for the year really like the leather and feel.  

Cons

Fuel economy not the best but it actually helps chilling me out on drives because I don't ever speed.

Love The Tundra! — I've owned another Toyota before, a 1998 extracab tacoma v6 and this Tundra makes me feel right at home. It's not so much bigger, sounds great, drives great, is smooth and comfortable. Love the leather and 4x4, rear slider, so much to like. Can't wait to go camping up in Yosemite and take the family!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Nice have a truck that could haul stuff and people

Cons

Shouldn't have bought it, didn't like it as much as I like my 4Runner

Good Truck — I liked my Tundra but had buyers remorse a week after I bought it. 0% interest inticed me into trading my 4Runner and after a week, I regreted trading. The Tundra was a great truck, too big for my needs though but a good vehicle with solid build quality, comfortable ride, and was as reliable as Toyota's reputation.

Pros

Ample power (but the new 5.7L would be nice), comfortable seats, plenty of cargo capacity, backup alert very handy, very quiet ride.

Cons

Removing front skidplate for an oil change is a real pain, drinks gas (17mpg), back sliding glass kind of a gimmick, turning radius is about a city block.

One Of The Best Vehicles I've Ever Owned — I did a lot of research before getting this model Tundra. Being the last year of this production run they pretty much did everything right. Even the 4.7L motor got a few tweaks to squeeze out a few more ponies. This is a typical Toyota product. It's built like a tank, everything works. There really aren't too many surprises. It would be nice if there was more storage under/behind the rear seats. Even though the cab is spacious there really isn't much room for jumper cables, tools, etc. Unlike its US counterparts the bed rails aren't solid. They're a crimped/welded line with a bunch of holes. Plastic covers snap in place to give the appearance of flat rails but they're not very solid. I added a roll-n-lock cover and it requires putting a bunch of spacers under the rails. Even with the spacers it doesn't work quite right since the plastic has a certain amount of play. The rolling rear window is kind of handy for cool days. Opening it a few inches and then cracking the front windows sets up a wind tunnel effect in the cab. Word of warning though the wind rushes from back to front so if you have any dust/debris in the bed it comes whipping in that back window. This is my favorite vehicle but it just doesn't quite match my needs at the moment. I bought a pickup because I thought I needed to haul stuff when I bought a house. I did haul a bunch of mulch, lumber, etc. However, I do a lot of camping and other outdoor activities. Having dry and secure storage rather than an open bed is more important so I'm looking for a late model 4runner instead.

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

Pros

I love the understated roominess and huge sunroof.  In addition, typical for Toyota is an extremely ergonomical, easy to use interior controls.  Also, I love how the back window rolls down all the way.

Cons

Gas mileage...but it's a truck so...

Sharp, Capable, And Dependable. — This truck is awesome! I haven't had any issues out of this truck. It's done everything I've asked it to do and it looks good doing it. My friends are always impressed by how much room it has, especially in the back. They also love how the back window rolls down.

Best Truck I Have Owned. — My Tundra is probably the best Truck I have owned. I have over 154,000 miles on it already and no problems yet. You cannot beat the reliability of Toyota vehicles - Don't listen to the media and the witch hunts of Toyota - they are one of the best built cars on the road. The interior space in this model year is good - I spend allot of time in this vehicle and like to drive it. The fuel mileage on my tundra is about 16 mpg - mixed driving - have had 19 mpg best and if all in town driving around 15 mpg. Not bad for a 4X4 that always has stuff in the bed to weight it down.

Great Truck, Keeps It's Value. — Loved everything about this truck. Tundra is the most reliable truck in the world. I never had one problem with this truck. I plan to get a BMW and I'm kinda scared because I've heard a lot of problems with them but at the end of the day how you take car of a car is huge and I took car of this truck like a new born baby. The only con I would say about this truck is the fuel economy.
