I am very disappointed in my 2000
Tundra. I have had brake work every
10,000 miles, $1,000's in other work
and at 60,000 had to pay $1,600 to have
cracked exhaust manifolds replaced.
Both were cracked. Seems clear this is
an engineering, maufacturing or
installation problem. The most they
would offer is to comp the parts, still
cost me $1,000. I sold it and bought a
much better quality truck, a GMC.
Don't waste your money on a Toyota
truck. They can't engineer brakes or
trucks that last. Buy a GMC/Chevy truck.
Toyota should stand behind their
products. They should stand behind
needed major repairs. This lack of
integrity shows the company doesn't
really care about quality. I just
bought a GMC that they stand behind the
engine for 100,000 miles!
Have owned and loved Toyotas
since '85. This was my first big
Toyota pickup. It rides cushy but
handles great and is quiet at higher
(Colorado) speeds which run 75-90 most
times. Reliability is perfect - hard
to get better than that. Bought it
used with 19K miles. Drove it 50K
miles so far with just oil changes
(synthetic oil) and 1 brake job - no
repairs needed. Have to sell it cause
I now need a salesman car not a
construction guy truck. Resale value
is great. Getting 18.5K now after
paying 21K 2 years ago. Try that with
a Chevy or Ford or Dodge. Snow and
ice no problem w/4WD. In short, I
love this truck!
Reliability, Comfort, Quietness, Power.
Only one - get limited slip
differential in rear. New ones have
it. Problem solved.
Great truck! Very few problems with
this vehicle, and those were fixed by
the dealer under warranty. I would
highly recommend this truck to anyone
interested in a full size pickup. The
4Wd works great I have never had any
problems with it.
The push button 4wd system
Optional larger engine, maybe even a
diesel or a hybrid system like the
Prius , which would improve power and
