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.

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab Limited Rwd Stepside SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

Bought mine used. The truck has been very easy to own. Toyota really makes good trucks. Engine on my stepside is a smooth revving V8, feels like a luxury car when you drive it. Fuel economy seem less than what is on specs but acceleration is very brisk you know the power is there. I love it.




Suicide doors were a mistake!!!

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab Limited Rwd Stepside SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

While looking at this truck it never crossed my mind that the suicide doors would be such a problem. Imagine trying to put groceries or anything you've purchased in the back seats in a crowded parking lot... You have to open the doors and be inbetween them...

This is the second tundra ive owned. I bought a 2000 when it first came out, i just sold it to my sister. I just bought a Stepside Limited 2003, i wanted the new stepside with the TRD sport package. Ive been very pleased with this one and my first one. Toyota is very reliable and has very good build quality. I would recommend this truck.
