Best truck ever........

Vehicle: 2000 Toyota Tundra SR5 V8 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Bought truck used in Oct. 2005 with 76K and have driven daily since then. Unfailingly reliable and built like a tank. Drives like a big Camry, far better than our Honda Pilot. Hauls anything in reason in total comfort. It's a bit of a gas guzzler, but what full-size 4wd pickup isn't? Can't wait to upgrade to a newer model!




Love it

I have over 130k on my truck and it still runs like a champ. I've never had any problems with it... not even one. I only change my oil once or twice a year and I beat the heck out of it but can't seem to break it. I'll own this truck until it dies and then I'll buy another Tundra. There are some minor changes that I made. I added a rear leaf springs because the stock one was two light for hauling loads. Also I didn't like the look of the front end pointing downward so I added body leveling rings. Finally I added some tougher looking wheels.




Hmmmm

Ball joints went out without any warning of indication they were bad. The drivers side suddenly dropped to the ground. The brake routers have not held up very well at all. My 4 wheel drive went out, had to replace a small electrical box by the passengers side floor area. 2 Ignitions coils went bad and the CD player suddenly stopped working. I have had the truck serviced by the dealer every 3 to 5 thousand miles. I called Toyota and they said sorry, and that was it. I think I will go back to Ford!

We bought the truck new 2/09 it was teeboned at a inter. Bent the frame only about a foot in from front. It was a total. It ran great to that day no problems. We just bought a new 2009. We will be looking forward to keeping it for life. We really loved that Toyota feeling. I replaced the front brakes only once at about 5000 we put 2 sets of tires on it and Toyota replaced the front axles. Rear window, and oxg sensor. Never pulled, always ran true. Ended up with 77,000 mi, still could be a great truck for someone.




So far so good.

I just recently purchased this truck, however, I am impressed at how well it has held up. I've caught up on required maintenance. Though expensive, I should have many thousands of miles to look forward to without having to pay for repairs. Ride is great, I forget I'm in a truck.




Has been a great truck!

Bought with 36k in 2002. Only problem is O2 sensor went out but I elected not to fix for $300. Runs fine. Other than that still runs like new, comfortable on the road and does what I need off road.
