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


Review

Truck rides like a Camry. V6 is more than enough power to drive straight up inclines in Vermont hills! MPG 21 or better if you drive the speed limit. I have only changed the oil. My first truck, would buy again! Toyota quality and great resale market for this truck. Lot's of room for a very tall guy.


Favorite Features

Good gas mileage for a truck this size if you stay at 65 mph. Inside very comfortable, you almost forget you are in a truck. No wonder this is called the best truck on the road. Easy to see out side mirrors and rear view mirror.


Suggested Improvements

Make a V6 hybrid tundra.

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


Review

I got the stripped model 2DR V6, A/C, roll-up windows, no cruise control, approx. $18,500. This is really a fantastic vehicle except for one nagging problem. The front brake rotors consistently become warped from overheating about every 20,000 miles. The so-called fix is to buy new star adjusters for the rear drum brakes. This does not solve the problem, and Toyota refuses to issue a recall notice or assist owners with this problem. They just sell the star adjustors which do not solve the problem. In standing behind their product, Toyota is becoming more like the U.S. auto producers!


Favorite Features

Great smooth driving vehicle. Gas mileage at 17-20 mpg is pretty good.


Suggested Improvements

This truck is not an F-150 substitute! It is too small, and doesn't have the size and power to haul and tow the way many people want to use a 1/2 ton pickup. Obviously, the brakes should be fixed.

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


Review

Best driving I've had with a truck or a car. Would like better gas mileage, but it is one of the best in its class. Would definitely buy again. Great truck.


Favorite Features

Brakes (don't ask, you'll know what I mean when you buy one). Smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage, roomier back, but that's been addressed already.

Review

I bought this truck new in Sept. 2001. It now has 64K and it still runs like it is brand new. I have had very few problems. I would recommend this truck to anyone. I had to have the O2 sensors replaced (recall) and the lower ball joints replaced (recall). The driver's sideview mirror had to be replaced because it rattled (under warranty). The only thing that I've had to pay for is the interior light switch on the driver's side. It was only $100.00. The dealership has always been very helpful and friendly. There are no squeaks or rattles anywhere. This truck was built to last. The engine is very smooth, responsive and quiet. The V8 engine is amazing.


Favorite Features

V8 power, very quiet, tight build quality, drives and rides like a car.


Suggested Improvements

better fuel economy, bigger back seat
