Review of the 2003 Toyota Tundra

  • The 2003 Toyota Tundra is a fine full-size pickup suited more for the general consumer than commercial use.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Silky V8, Toyota build quality and reliability, less-than-full-size maneuverability.

  • Cons

    Lacks wide range of choice offered by domestics, somewhat uncomfortable front seats, meager rear cab room on Access Cab, chintzy interior trimmings.

  • What's New for 2003

    Toyota has expanded the Tundra's body style variety by adding a new StepSide model. Its distinctive styling includes flared rear wheel arches and special tail lamps. If you want to make the StepSide even sportier, there is a new sport suspension package available. All 2003 Toyota Tundras have a restyled front fascia, standard antilock brakes and a center console similar to the one found in the Sequoia SUV. For the top-line Limited trim, Toyota has added a power sliding rear window.

Transmission troubles

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Tundra 2dr Regular Cab Rwd LB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)

The 5 speed manual transmission vibrates too much. Two dealerships told me that was normal. Transmission seems to downshift itself even thought it is a manual transmission. Very uncomfortable feeling.

I love this truck. I've had mine less than a year and it SO beats the life out of the Chevy piece of junk I had. If you want a truck to haul truck stuff, ride well, and be reliable AND be worth something should you decide to sell it a few years down the road -- get a Toyota. Fantastic Truck!

Anyone know anything about the 2003 Tundras? I read in Motor Trend magazine that there was supposed to be a significant update and an engine upgrade, but there was no additional info. Any ideas?...
