BOUGHT THIS TRUCK A FEW MONTHS AGO
WITH 5000 MILES.I LOOKED AT BUYING A
CHEVY SILVERADO BUT THE DESIGN OF THE
STEPSIDE CAUGHT MY EYE. UPON DRIVING
THE TUNDRA I WAS SURPRISED AT THE
POWER IT HAD, ESPECIALLY DURING
ACELLERATION. IT IS FUN TO DRIVE. THE
GRAY PEARL PAINT IS REALLY NICE! THIS
TRUCK HAS MORE GET UP AND GO THAN MY
HUSBANDS CHEVY 1500 TRUCK WITH A V 8
5.3 ENGINE.I JUST SOLD MY 2000 TOYOTA
4RUNNER SO I KNOW THIS WILL HAVE A
GREAT RESALE VALUE.REAR SEATS ARE
TIGHT BUT I WAS'NT LOOKING FOR A CREWW
CAB. I WISH TOYOTA WOULD PUT A
COMPASS,TEMP MIRROR IN THIER TRUCKS
BUT IF THATS ALL I FIND FIND TO
COMPLAIN ABOUT, I FEEL LUCKY!
ENGINE PERFORMANCE,LOOKS OF THE
STEPSIDE. KNOWN RELIABILITY.
COMPASS TEMP MIRROR AS STANDARD IN THE
HIGHER END MODELS.
Overall I'm satisfied with my overgrown
T-100. Yes, this 3.4 is the same
powerplant the T-100 had but - without
the 24 MPG. Currently I get 18-19
mpg. For a V-6 - well I'm somewhat
disappointed. Seems Toyota thought
more fuel realated computer adjustments
might be helpful...cough, cough. Also
hav eto echo a comment another reviewer
had...the clock should have been left
at the upper center of the dash (like
the T-100) - now its so low, when the
sun shines its a distraction.
Again, overall - this is an excellent
Good sound system, seats comfortable,
cabin layout (except note below) very
Improve the MPG for current customers -
at NO cost! This engine can do much
better!!! Reposition the Hazard light
switch and clock up!!!
It is still only 95% full-sized truck!
I love it,my 3rd Toyota and would buy
another! I really like thte smooth
powerfull V8 I am averaging 17mpg on a
tank full. I do take it off-road and
it performs well,can't wait to replace
the factory tires though with some
good"diggers".I bought it for safe
reliable transportation and to haul my
snowmobiles,I believe it will do all
that just fine for 200,000 miles like
my last ones! One more thing..it will
look good doing it.
V8 access cab nice stereo I added a
rhino-liner...very nice product. Oh
yea the price was right also!
Great truck. The transmission is
incredible. Good fuel economy with
plenty of power. Great all-purpose
truck. I test drove every other truck
and the engine+tranny won me over.
It's also a very safe truck; check out
the crash ratings--especially if you
have little ones.
More room inside--feels like a coffin
in the back.
