Better than any american made truck

2003 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had a few chevys and a ford and none of them came close to the comfort and solid feel of my Tundra. Those fancy new silveradoes, f150s and rams will be money pits in 6 years. That is the real test of a truck, not how it is new, but how it with 100k miles on it. I have no doubt about the tundra. The motor is made to last over 200k. Look at any of the high mileage landcruisers. If you are looking for a compact/full size this is by far the best thing on the market.

Needs much improvement

2003 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Truck is a 2000. Many quiet recalls. . Wrong dip stick, Replaced rear shocks, CD player. Trans shifting, security system, and rear door problems. Really bad brakes. Still not fixed after 2 + years. Weak low-end torque. Fair fuel economy. Too soft a real work truck. Not designed for recreation either. Useless rear seat. Weak bumpers. Trans is cold blooded. Up shifts too soon when cold. Too much tappet noise for a new truck. Rear door mechanism needs work. Not a serious truck. Don't be suckered in by resale figures, or reliability ratings, or sales hype. Buy one of the big three or a Tacoma would be a better choice.

Terrific Tundra

Review

As an owner of several other trucks, my experience with the Tundra has been excellent. The ride is smooth and quiet, the interior is comfortable and well designed. The build quality of this truck is excellent in all aspects. Only gripes are that turning radius is fairly large and requires some planning for U turns etc. The rear seats could also use a few more inches of space. My Tundra has been getting very close to the rated milage for both city and highway. The engine is responsive with plenty of torque. I test drove Ford, Dodge, Nissan and Toyota (Tacoma) trucks before selecting the Tundra. Good Choice!

It's all good

Review

I've driven many full sized trucks and for the money, this one beats them all. This truck has the smoothest ride even with the offroad package I've experienced in a full size. The one thing that I would change is the room in the back, other than that, I've found this truck to have plenty of power and great handling. The style fits a younger image than Chevy and the torque is higher than Ford (in a comparable truck.) I would definitely recommend this truck for those wanting power, reliability and style.

Excellent build quality

2003 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The truck was delivered new in pristine condition. Problems: front disc brakes warp easily. Some front suspension noise or roughness. Poor dealer service. Not enough engine torque especially going uphill. Poor mileage. Not enough storage cubbyholes inside. Rear seat back should tilt foward for more storage. Hard to park due to big turning radius. Bed height is too shallow.

great truck

Review

This truck is excellent. They redesigned the grill for 2003, which I like. The ride is pretty smooth for a truck. It has plenty of power (it's hard not to speed). My only gripe is that compared to other extended cabs, the rear seats seem smaller.
