After about 6000 miles the truck started shaking when I stopped. I took it back to the dealer who did a complete brakes job. It drove great for about another 8000 miles then started shaking again. In total, I have had 3 new rotors, 2 new drums, 2 new front calipers, including the last time when they installed the updated brakes, just before the warranty ran out. now it still shakes when I stop. The dealer tells me there is nothing htey can do, since it has all the latest updates for the brakes. Also, the exhaust manifold leaked, and the check engine light has been on 4 seperate time for various emission problems that have totaled over $900.

Brakes, Brakes Brakes. If you buy the truck, expect to have the brakes done every 5000 miles or endure the shaking each time you stop.
I've had Toyota before and this is no different. Great quality, good ride, etc. BUT, the trailer pulling capacity is by no means what the manufacturer says which is 7000lb. Pulling a 6000 lb trailer with OD off will cause the tranny to work some serious overtime. Suggest don't pull anything more than 5000 lb MAX and thats with a small set of tires and preferrable 2wd. Other than that it's a great truck.
Handling and ride - You'd think you were in a camry.
The need to come out with a HD version of this truck that can compete with the GM and Ford vehicles.
This is also an update to our 2000 Tundra SR5 V8 4x2. Just finished 150K mark on this. Some time ago performed spark-plug tune-up - bingo, this truck runs new like the first day I bought this Big Dawg in 99. Change oil every 5K and this Toyota keeps going 4eva! To date, this truck doesn't rattle, squeak, squeal, or rust. Recently put a another set of Michelin LTX. I do get about 17-18 MPG on mostly highway drive. I have used it to tow just about anything you can imagine (within ratings limits), impressive passing power even with full-load. At times don't even realize we have 5000+ pound trailer attached, power fools ya!
Power, reliability, towing and confort. To date, it drives just brand- new with absolute minimalist maintenance
O2 sensors, seems Toyotas have fixed this problem in later year models
2000 Toyota Tundra Limited 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I purchased my Tundra new in September of 2000. Since then I have put 140,000 on it. Other then normal maintenance (oil changes, wiper blades, brakes) I have had only one expense which was an oxygen sensor. Replaced OEM tires with the BFG AT/KO's..love them. Definitely would buy again!
Extended cab back seat isn't comfortable for more then a 20 minute ride for an adult...
