I disagree with the numbers toyota says
about the towing cap. I tow a trailer
that ways just over 10000 pounds five
days a week and not a hint of arguement
from this truck. I have also had 1800
pounds of aluminum in the bed of this
truck and no problems as of yet (with
20000 miles of this on a stock truck)
definantely its reliablity
goes through tires and brakes pretty
quickly, but that could have something
to do with the way I drive it.
I bought my Tundra used with only 34000 miles on it and I also bought an extended warranty. Now at 36000 miles the rear leaf springs under the bed make popping and buckling sounds. Toyota dealership AND extended warranty company will not correct problem because they say nothing is "broken or damaged" - it's only "making noises" and they don't honor that for repair purposes. Truck is great otherwise - no problems, great power for towing. Very disappointed manufacturer won't correct this issue especially with $1500 extended warranty purchased!
Strong engine, lots of power, fast and responsive. Comfortable interior, nice car like ride.
Don't buy an extended warranty - turned out to be a total waste of money since Toyota dealer will not honor or fix my noisy suspension problem! Wants to charge me $1600 to replace rear leaf springs.
It was my dads truck and he was meticulous about taking care of it and getting oil changes. Truck is spacious with a huge back seat. It goes to show, if you know how to drive and take care of a vehicle, you wont have problems.
I bought this truck new on January 4th of 2004, and I have not had a single problem. I have 120,000 miles on it, and it still runs like new. It is a little slow, but that is expected with a 3.4 in this size of a truck. I would definitely recommend a Tundra to anyone looking for a good used vehicle.
