I may never sell this truck.  It does everything I need it to and more.

Cons

Difficult to park and not the best gas saver.

The Tundra Does Not Disappoint. — I bought this truck because Consumer Reports recommended it. I have only had an issue with the driver's seat squeaking that Toyota fixed under warranty. Other than that it has performed very well and I would buy it again. Tow package, 4x4, giant cabin and plenty of power.

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

Best Half Ton Truck On The Road — I've had a couple of trucks and this one puts them all to shame. Most reliable and best looking truck. I had an 08 dodge ram before this one and from the time I bought it untill I got rid of it I put 64000 on it. The ac went out, the fr passenger side hub had to be replaced and the water pump went out on the dodge. The Toyota not one shop fee. Rides excellent!!!

Pros

Power, Interior and exterior build-quality, drive/handling, quite demeanor.

Cons

Gas milage, but of course, that is to be expected with an exceptionally powerful and fast truck like this.

Great Truck, Good Value - More Of An Investment Than A Purchase. — This was my second Toyota Tundra Limited truck. My first was a 2007 Limited TRD DoubleCab Tundra- it was great, very reliable, very fast and fun to drive, and always left me with a feeling that I got something good for my money. This second Tundra is of the CrewMax body-style, but still with the Limited trim-level, TRD options, and various other upgrades. The 2012 Tundra has also been a great vehicle. The CrewMax body-style has a huge amount of room behind the front-seats. The rear-seats fold, so there's the capability of using that huge space for cargo, as well as people. These trucks are very quick, respond right away, and never give the driver the feeling that they aren't getting enough power to the ground. Switching to two-wheel-drive via the dash-knob allows for even better handling and responsiveness, in my opinion, also. The Tundra is a great truck! Also, this truck is easy to live with and park, particularly with its relatively compact turning-circle.

The ride quality.

Overall Fun Truck To Drive, But Ride Quality Sucks — The Tundra is a decent truck, but the ride quality absolutely sucks. Adding a TRD rear sway bar does help, but around 60 mph or faster it has bad bed/rear axle hop. The cab has plenty of room to have 5 full grown men riding around in it comfortably. This truck can get up and move when you want it to, but you can watch the fuel gauge drop when you do.

Love It — Drove all trucks before deciding on the one that all dealers of all makes raved about. I thought that if the competition is impressed with the tundra , I may as well buy one from the source instead of paying their premium price for a used tundra. The best decision I have made in a while. LOVE IT!!! I notice a bunch of envious eyes turn when I pull up in my beautiful red Tundra!
