Back seats are uncomfortable. Low gear is a button on the dash...dumb. Hazard is near the low gear button. Other than that, a simply amazing vehicle. One set of brake pads in 175,000 miles (admittedly, a lot highway). One set of spark plugs. When I changed the timing belt (suicide is preferable) the old belt still looked fine. Power is incredible. Mileage only about 16 combined. I have never been so impressed with a vehicle's reliability...they need more stars for that category.
Great Truck. Bought used with 42000 miles on it in 2012. My only complaint is car seat latch placement. Behind driver, and in center. Rough getting 2 car seats in this locations at the same time. 2.5 inch lift on 285/75/R16's contribute to the poor gas mileage.
Wow! I knew that Toyota had one heck of a reputation when I purchased this truck used with 40,000 miles on it but now I am a true believer sitting here with almost 100K on the odometer. This thing is built like a rock! I have driven it from Colorado to South Padre Island and back hauling 4 buddies and our gear. I have towed heavy loads from Colorado to NY, NY to OK, OK to AZ and never had so much as a hick-up with this thing! It is very comfy and can easily seat 5 grown men. I am not afraid to go off-road with this vehicle as I know it can stand up to some punishment. I have had to perform nothing but routine maintenance since purchasing. It is very easy to take care of.
I personally love the ride of this truck. It is comfortable for trips down the road to get groceries or towing trailers across the US. All the features work great, 4x4, power windows and seats, heated seats, AC, and stereo. Mechanically a solid rock, very hard to break and is very easy to fix or perform general maintenance. It is well designed and fun to drive.
The only real downside I have had with my truck so far is the paint on the outside. It totally chipped off the front bumper and the black edging around the windows is chipping off especially around the back window. I haven't read to many other people having this problem so it might just be an isolated incident. Finally not as a negative but simple because of a lack of a better place to put it this truck gets somewhere around 14 MPG. I can usually get somewhere around 300 miles to a tank of gas, sometimes going as far as 330 and sometimes getting as little as 280 depending on how I'm driving. It is a truck, and a slightly older one at that so its expected not to get the best mpg.
The best vehicle I've ever owned. Smooth, powerful, comfortable, and above all else, RELIABLE. Quietest cab I've ever ridden in. I've got 114,00 miles on this 8 year-old truck, some of which have been very hard miles. Like 2 yards of concrete in the bed kind of hard. (I've got air springs in the back, increasing payload and improving handling). There's not even a rattle in the cab after 8 years. Tight as a drum. This thing has never needed anything more than standard maintenance. Ford, GM, and Dodge can say they have the better rig, but read the comments on those used trucks on this very website. You won't want anything but a Tundra when you do. [non-permissible content removed]
**UPDATE @ 150K MILES: Still a turnkey truck. Zero issues that weren't self-inflicted. Still exceptionally quiet. Truck is now 11 years old and no rust evident despite being in a road salt environment most of its life. Recently pulled 7000 lbs of trailer and equipment 1000 miles with it and it performed like a champ. Braking could have been better, but that's what you get with drums in the back. Only complaint at this point is the MPG could have been better with these engines. 17MPG highway at BEST isn't great for a "small" V8, particularly when Toyota's 5.7L with 100 more HP gets the same mileage. Progress, I guess.
