2005 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4dr Double Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my tundra new in 2005. It has been regularly serviced and to date I have had no issues outside of regular maintenance. Currently I have 69,000 miles and still have the original Dunlop OEM tires. It is about time to replace, but not bad for a truck. The interior is "ok", but the drivetrain is as smooth as silk. Mileage could be better, but it is a truck. Love the Limited slip diff, as well as the roll down rear window.


Favorite Features

Roll down window, powertrain, smooth ride, solid engine.


Suggested Improvements

Better seats (comfort), improved gas mileage, improved turning radius.

Review

I have owned my tundra for four years. It has been a workhorse and still rides like the day I brought her home. Mileage is 15/18 which isn't bad. No problems and engine is still silky smooth. Would buy another one. Tows my boat well and limited slip is very sure footed.


Favorite Features

Decent ground clearance for a 2wd pickup.


Suggested Improvements

Needs a better stereo.

Review

Drive Tundra to work everyday approx 22 miles of highway driving. Has been a very reliable vehicle with now having 62,000 miles and still on the original tires. Only maintenance has been by the book with fluid changes. Tow boat about once every two weeks and it handles a 3,000 pound package without any problem.


Favorite Features

Fun to drive. Transmission is extremely smooth as well as the ride. Love the rear window that rolls down.


Suggested Improvements

Should get better gas mileage with only a 4.7 litre motor and a relatively smaller frame as trucks go. Average about 16 city and 18 on highway.

Review

I bought my Tundra used after my F150 was totaled. What a monster!!! I own a construction business, and the Tundra beats the F150 in every category. MPG, power, torque, ride, room, comfort, etc. I will never buy a Ford or Chevy truck again. I added exhaust, leveling kit, and oversized tires, and I am getting about 21 mpg. WOW!!!! Drive one and you will buy one.


Favorite Features

POWER, MPG, power rear window, and ride


Suggested Improvements

HMMMM......... better turning radius.
