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


Review

The V8 runs very well, but a little underpowered. Needs VVT valve technology to get the power up. Heater system inadequate. Not enough air, and to the wrong places. Build quality typical Toyota (very good). Needs a little help with transmission logic. 2 to 1 downshift at low speeds annoying, especially on slipery surfaces. Overall, a good reliable pickup, if you're not doing "full sized" chores. This is NOT a full size pickup. But then again, I bought it because it wasn't full sized.


Favorite Features

Smoothness, reliability, serviceability.


Suggested Improvements

VVT technology for valve train. Better keyless entry system (the stock system is a pain to work with). Power rear window.

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


Review

Wonderful quite ride on the road,off road is a pleasure driving also. I don't think it is a serious contender when 4X4 climbing comes into play. Just over 27,000 miles I take it off road a lot, blew out my front differential/and axle. Warranty to cover.


Favorite Features

Over all quality construction and terrific driver, sound system decent, full line of aftermarket goodies.


Suggested Improvements

More cargo area in bed, more room behind front seats, better gas milage and or more horsepower with the same milage.

Review

I've had this truck for 2 years now. It's been flawless with the exception of the front brakes which Toyota upgraded under warranty. Excellent ride and drivability. Built to last (unlike my last F-150).


Favorite Features

Engine, ride, handling


Suggested Improvements

A bit more back seat room.

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


Review

Previously owned 86 Ford Bronco(bought new). Got tired of fixing it all the time and I do mean all the time. The Tundra oozes in quality. The ride is soft and very quiet, engine very powerful, seats comfortable and good driving position. Under the hood it is a sheer enginering marvel, a home mechanics dream.


Favorite Features

Looks good, drives great. Stereo very good. Love the soft ride. Hauls my 1500 lb boat like at ain't there.


Suggested Improvements

Automatic climate control. I love the auto climate control on the wife's Odyssey.

Review

Impressive truck. Test drove the other Big Three truck manufacturers before visiting Toyota. Sure glad I did....the Tundra had a noticeable superior ride and performance. Silky smooth V8 and the transmission is so fluid that you can't tell it's shifted unless you've either pegged the accelerator or you're watching the tach move.


Favorite Features

Acceleration. Only rated at 245HP/315 ft/lbs torque but it feels and performs like quite a bit more.


Suggested Improvements

The rear seating needs a more reclined backrest and more leg room. This has been accomplished with later Tundra models.
