I was driving the Tacoma, and could
not wait to get the Tundra, it was my
third Toyota. I was very pleased with
the overall hanlding, ride and comfort
of the Tundra. The accelaration is
smooth and powerful. It rides great
with or without a full load in the
bed. I was a satisified owner.
Then some problems started to
surface. It is now on the third
oxygen sensor. In Nov. '03 the
transmission started acting up.
Fortunately I had the extended
warranty, because in Mar'04 it failed
and had to replaced. The rebuilt is
not working very well. I'm not so
satisfied any longer.
I owned three 4x4 Toyota trucks in the

do squeal a little when backing up but
I've heard thats do to brake dust. The
gas mileage is better when I keep my
foot out of it but then again, its a
truck with a V8 not a compact.
Excellent engine performance and
everything under the hood is very easy
to get to. Ease of maintenance!
This is my first Toyota and will
certainly not be my last. I have owned
both Chevrolet and Dodge pickups and
am on a first name basis with the
service managers of both dealerships.
My Tundra is easily the most
dependable pickup I have ever owned. I
use this vehicle for commuting in
urban Boise traffic and backcountry
Idaho hunting and fishing trips. On
the road it rides and handles like a
luxury car, while easily conquering
the snow and mud of off-road here in
I am now hooked on Toyota!
Great gas mileage for a V8 engine.
Excellent ride. Very comfortable
sitting in traffic, very strong and
The only downside I have found, the
back seat is a little cramped. Open
this up a bit and this would be the
