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.
Straight forward layout under the
hood. Generally good ride. Smaller
size than the other trucks.
FIX THE DAM BRAKES! Needs four wheel
anti lock disc brakes. More engine and
accessory choices. A more powerfull V8
to start with. A rear seat you can
actully use. A Club Cab version like
the Ford Sort Trac. Stiffen the rear
springs. Make the Tundra a good mid
