When Toyota first advertised the
new '00 Tundra, what interested me was
the emphasis placed on the Tundra’s new
I-Force V8 engine. After waiting two
years and tracking the success of the
Tundra, I decided to test drive this
truck and immediately knew that this
was a well build truck.
I’ve driven this truck across the USA
with no problems. I also have used
this truck to haul wood and for
towing. The 4X4 works well both off-
road and on wet/snow covered pavement.
The anti-locking brakes also works well
on icy and gravel roads. I highly
recommended the anti-locking brakes.
I’m very pleased with this truck and
will buy another Tundra.
V-8 I-Force Engine; Toyota’s long
standing reliability; Six CD changer;
Front bucket seats; High ground
Back seat is uncomfortable for adults,
but my kids doesn’t complaint and I
don’t have to sit back there.
Had my Tundra struck from behind while
stopped at a red light. Causing
complete destruction of the offending
2002 Chevy Envoy. The Tundra had to
have a new bumper and and the bed
repaired, but no damage to the heavy
frame or the rest of the truck. You
could not imagine that these two
vechicles were in the same accident. As
the state trooper said...I'm going to
by a Tundra next time I need a truck.
had a 4 door Dodge Ram 4x4 with the
hemi engine was nice but teh extra room
and 4 doors was the best features..I
would like to see the new 4 door Tundra
offer the room of the big 3's 4 door
Excellent fullsize truck, with
excellent build quaility. I would buy
another in a heart beat.I live Arizona
and the summers are hot and A.C. is
excellent. If you buy Tundra get the V8
you will be happy.
The V8 power is the best. I also like
that the tow cap. is 7200lbs.
Put rear air conditioning ducts in the
back seat area.
This truck is great! The only regret I
have about buying it, is that I chose
the V6 model (I have to go to school,
SDSU, which is 35 miles away, each
way). I would strongly suggest the
consumer to buy the V8 iforce model.
Anyways, this truck is awesome, I hope
to trade it in for the 2004 model,
which is improved greatly. The back
seats are enlarged.
The back seats should be bigger, but,
fortunately, the 2004 year model will
have this improvement.
We went from a Camry to the full sized
Tundra. The truck is every bit as
comforatble and easy to drive as the
Camry is. What an engine. Very smooth
and powerfull. Reminds me of the 1950's
and 60's V8 era. As far as the back
seat goes, it is comforatble for short
(less than 500 miles) trips. The bed is
shallow but for city truckers that is
fine. I would say we will buy another
but this one will probably last forever.
V8, carlike interior.
Move the rear door handles to the latch
part of the door.
