I recently purchased one on Ebay, needed some parts and tlc but it runs really nice now, I love it for its size, its not too big, and it rides really nice. I had a mechanic from a garage hwere I was getting it inspected ask me if I wanted to sell it, he offered about $1500 more that what I had put into it in total but I really like the truck and politely declined. Ive only owned it for about a year but from what I have read from others who purchased one used or new, they said they were very happy with it and would purchase another one, very dependable and run forever if you take care of them. Ill wait and see.

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!

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

Pros: Fair fuel mileage, handles ok, not a real reliable work truck.

Cons: Very costly maintenance.

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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent power
Superior reliability
Looks great

Cons: Full size truck but the bed is kind of shallow compared to other trucks

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything positive.

Cons: None.

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.

Pros: 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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

Cons: Back seating capacity limited.  17 mi/gal. Sound system could be better.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel efficient for a v8

Cons: Not enough leg room in back seat

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.

Pros: 1. 113,000 miles, lost all all acceleration, broke down, cost 1,700.00 to fix and 225,00 towing.defective part is throttle body motor failure.part 22030-50142, 2.at 99,000.00 miles 02 senor defective froze on exhaust, cost 1100,00, 4,000 miles later went bad, jim norton toyota of tulsa would not warranty because its been one year since part was installed,they want 300.00 for a new one.Beware, anybody with m113,000 miles , you can break down in the desert, at any time because of the defective throttle electric body.robert gray out of tulsa,ok.

Cons: above stated

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.)

Pros: Acceleration, Interior/Exterior build quality, Interior/Exterior styling, Comfortable Seats, Reliability.

Cons: Fuel economy.
