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


Review

If you don't need a heavy-duty work truck, this is the pickup truck for you. The V8 is a good compromise between power and gas mileage--if you're lightly-loaded. It has a smooth, quiet ride, high build quality and (so far) excellent reliability.


Favorite Features

Ride quality, smooth power delivery, reasonable price with rebates, etc.


Suggested Improvements

Increase rear-seat room in the extended cab model, more power is always desired.

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


Review

If you're looking for quality, reliability and value, get a Tundra. I'll take the gas mileage 16-19 anyday for the value and the low maintenance costs. Truly a well-built vehicle. Drivetrain is smooth and powerful. This should tell you all about Toyota engineering: they use 6 quarts of oil in the crank compared to 4 and 5 from everyone else. Get the towing package; if nothing else, you get the HD tranny with aux. cooler. The drivetrain will last forever. No regrets.


Favorite Features

Lexus V-8. Sweet growl, smooth and extremely quick.


Suggested Improvements

TINY back seats. Unless you have little ones, the back is not for passengers.

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


Review

What a great truck. Don't believe the BS about how this truck doesn't tow like the domestic counterparts. I have the factory towing package and this truck tows my 21 foot Bass Boat like it wasn't even hooked up back there. Drives and rides very smooth, almost like a quality sedan. Of course, it also has Toyota reliability and warranty.


Favorite Features

Styling is wonderful. Very agressive and also sporty.


Suggested Improvements

I have heard folks having problems with the front brakes. I have not experienced this myself, so hopefully Toyota has remedied this problem on my model year truck.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Good acceleration, accommodating cockpit


Suggested Improvements

Poor fuel economy, dash mount of clock is too low you have to take your eyes off the road to check.
