2002 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 2WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Truck has been totally trouble free. Everything is very well thought out. It drives almost exactly the same as when I drove it off the lot. The engine is quiet and very smooth and the suspension is awesome: it drives the same whether the bed is empty or filled to its capacity. It's become an old friend.


Best Features

Smooooooth engine and accurate (not sloppy) suspension. I got 95,000 on my original tires!!!


Worst Features

More spacious interior (new models have this). Of course better gas mileage would be good.

2002 Toyota Tundra 2dr Regular Cab SR5 4WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've owned this truck since new and it probably saved my life in an accident when I ran up on the rear end of broken down snowplow parked in the middle of an unplowed road on an extreme downhill. Get one with ABS and Lmt. Slip if you can. Mileage is ok 11 city / 17 hwy but the engine is butter and I've loaded over a ton of used bricks/construction debris in the back and hauled it to the dump no problem. Not very nimble (turning radius is quite wide) but dependable and well thought out. Has required only routine maintenance and a couple covered TSBs (O2 Sensors) in its 35,000 miles. I'd buy again but I'd have bought an Ex. Cab in hindsight and gone with the 6 cyl.


Best Features

V8 is just butter... expensive butter!


Worst Features

Make ABS standard. The standard Bridgestone tires were just a disgrace, put on some Michelins ASAP.

2002 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 2WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

7 years and the truck looks brand new! Standard Lexus engine was a dream in this truck. No repairs have been needed, only one set of tires and 3 new batteries (eats them up for some reason?). Mileage, I'm still getting 21 mpg around town and 28 highway! Would have to offer me a lot to trade, all new trucks can't come close.


Best Features

Great mileage, no repair problems and paint still looks new.


Worst Features

Electric seat adjustment would be okay.

2002 Toyota Tundra 2dr Regular Cab 2WD LB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This truck drives and rides great, much better than most in this category. I use it for light hauling, mostly yardwork and home remodeling supplies. It really fits this need very well. I would not want to tow a very big trailer with the V6 though. Interior is great, good design, fit and finish. Plenty of room for my family of 3.


Best Features

Ride, handling, simplicity of design inside and out.


Worst Features

More torque from the V6, and better than 18 mpg. Power locks and windows should be standard.

Review

Very reliable truck. I have had problems with front brake rotors warping. Currently on my 4th set of rotors. Other than rotors warpping the build quality has been excellent. The truck is 5 years old and still is in excellent condition. Current mileage is 86,000.


Best Features

Build quality and reliability.


Worst Features

Better brake system. Heavier payload capacity.
