This is my second Tundra. My 2001,
with ABS, skidded on a wet curve when
I braked, and was totaled (I was hit
by a Camry doing 50 - 60 mph and
walked home!) This time I got the
Vehicle Stability Control package,
along with the Double Cab. I just love
this vehicle (and I'm almost 60). I
get 17.5 miles to a gallon in mixed
city/freeway driving, but I drive
sensibly - gas is $2.20 a gal. The
driver's seat seems worse than
the '01, though. The initial shifting
also appears jerkier.
The smooth, noiseless ride. The best
fuel economy of the big trucks. The
SAFETY of the Tundra!
A more ergonomic driver's seat and a
smoother shifting tranny - and this
would be a dream ride.
