I bought this truck based on Toyota's customer service and durability of my 1990 Toyota 4x4 pickup. Anyway, about this truck... Excellent durability, reliability and really fun to drive. I am tall, so the headroom is awesome. Plenty of power for my needs, great braking and very comfortable. The tires that come from the factory wore out way too quick. I have had to replace two O2 sensors, which is a bummer. I have had to replace two latches for the rear windows. Other than that, I have had no problems with this vehicle. I try to perform regular maintenance, but I slip quit a bit.
Exterior design, interior comfort, smooth ride, very comfortable on long drives.
Powerful, user-friendly electronics.
O2 Sensors, Rear window latches, better tires from the factory.
My parents bought this car in 2004 with about 45,000 miles on it. The truck is smooth, powerful, quiet, confidence inspiring. We have been averaging 19 mpg in town and about 21 on the freeway w/out 4 wheel drive. Pretty good for a V8 and heavy truck. The only problem is the transmission...It works wonderfully until you have to tow your heavy trailer! 6500 pounds down hill broke the weaker parts in the Tranny, atleast it was safe enough to drive the rest of the way home! Otherwise, great truck...does that kill the point of having a truck? I tend to think so.
Comfortable, fast, drives very well, handles great for a truck.
Stronger tranny for towing and you've got a perfect truck!
Like driving a luxury car with a bed. All I move
around is my music gear, and the occasional
trip to Lowes. This truck is perfect for me.
After owning nothing but Hondas and one
Ford, I think I'll stick with Toyota. Everything
feels extremely solid, and the engine and
transmission are smooth as silk
Wow, this is one heck of a solid
truck. I commute from San Antonio to
Austin every day. What a joy to
drive! Noise levels are very low,
smooth ride, very comfortable for
driver and front passenger. 18+ mpg
for a V8 is great. No issues and
regular upkeep. Thanks Toyota!!
Smooth ride, good mpg, low interior
noise, comfortable front seating.
