This is just a half ton truck. If you are going to tow you have to get all the goodies to do it. You have to get the right gears and coolers to make it right. I did these things and have no problems. Don't think you are bying a one ton truck.
Excellent truck. Very smooth transmission, motor is very refined. Seats are very comfortable. Just bought truck on 7/16/05. Liked the truck and was able to get a good deal.This truck is much more refined then my 2000 F150. When you drive the Tundra it handles and drives (very nimble) like a much smaller truck than it is. Like the shallow bed (easier to reach over sides to get cargo out) I only have about 160 miles on it at this time. I have owned Ford trucks all my life. I had it narrowed down to the Tundra,Tacoma, and Honda Ridgeline. The Tundra was the only one I ended up test driving. My wife agreed that it is all around the best looking of the three.
Stability control available while getting offroad package. 3-4" more leg room in back on extended cab even at the expense of bed length would be very good idea for utilizing the back seat for bigger people.
So far I havent had any problems with it. It has tons of power for passing and it accelerates good for a truck. Beat out BMWs. Very comfortable for a truck, only thing I gotta get used to is the bounce in the back when going over speed bumps or pot holes.
Handles like a car but has the capabilities of a truck.
If i had to say something, i would say the position of the clock in front of the cupholders, but thats if I'm bein real picky.
I love my tundra. I waited to review it until I had it for a while 8 months now. 15000 mile service, and the first car I have owned, that hasn't been to the shop multiple times for engine lights, breakdowns. As you can tell this is the first toyota I have owned. Hauls great had 2000 lbs of sod with minimal rear end sag. Towed 16 foot enclosed trailer rated above the 6800 lbs towing capacity with no problems, trailer brakes were wired and only required 4 wire hook up. Never a problem with power, will be adding trd supercharger when it becomes available. Only problem thus far has been on door panels. The carpet keeps comming unglued, will adress that at the 15000 mile service coming up.
Power, Acceleration, Reliability, Styling, Color Spectra Blue when Clean, Been a great truck don't know what to say, Love the deep bed so much more room than the TITAN.
Hybrid, power seats in SR5, lighted vanity mirrors, MPG and Miles to empty in the overhead computer come on toyota Ford and Jeep have had for 10 years now. TRD needs to get the supercharger problems working, Towing capacity, GLUE that holds, Build toyota to compete with tow ratings of ford & nissan
