ReviewTruck 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.
Best FeaturesStraight forward layout under the hood. Generally good ride. Smaller size than the other trucks.
Worst FeaturesFIX 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 size truck.
