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


Review

You would think Toyota means "problem free" for at least 4 years, BUT NOT TRUE. At 2 years, gear shift malfunction ($1134.59 repair),defective rear leaf spring ($1239.99). At 3 years old catastrophic transmission malfunction ($3449.59). In a 3 year peroid a total of $5824. 17 repairs for someone that uses it to commute to work. OH WHAT A FEELING IT IS ! TOYOTA $$$$$$$$$


Favorite Features

Smooth on highway, handling,


Suggested Improvements

Access door to oil filter. Better seat belts. 2nd battery option. Better ext. paint, less brittle and thicker. Anti-rust undercoat.

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


Review

I bought this used 6mo ago with ~65k mi on it and in apparently excellent shape. So far I've had to deal with grease spitting cv boots, worn out tie rod ends, recalled lower steering ball joints, and I just found out my steering rack is shot and requires replacement! I've owned several other trucks and never had this much trouble in this short a period. Lemon? Abused by the previous owner? Maybe both, but I expected more from a Toyota. Oh, the mileage is terrible, almost never get above 14mpg for mixed driving. Otherwise it's a great truck... I guess.


Favorite Features

locking rear differential. roomy access cab. smooth power curve.


Suggested Improvements

better fuel efficiency. get back to the dependability that toyota was known for.

Review

I now have 67000 miles on my truck. It is my only vehicle and it has never failed me in over three years. I live in northern New Hampshire where winters can be pretty tough. I have had to only do the regular maintenance required. Before this I owned a Toyota Camry which I ran for nine years. My son still runs it and it has over 150000 miles. I'll stay with Toyota for the reasons noted above and for the resale value.


Favorite Features

Dependability!!!!


Suggested Improvements

Could do better on gas mileage. I believe in this day and age these trucks could be designed to get far better mileage.

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


Review

This truck is my first Toyota lemon. The rotors warp every 3000 miles, a common problem on all Tundras now. Don't buy one used (or new). Toyota has learned well from U.S. car corporations. Stall, stall, deny. Just do a web search for " Tundra Brake Problems".


Favorite Features

comfort and power


Suggested Improvements

Heavy duty front brakes and rear disc.
