2005 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This truck had 42,000 miles on it when I bought it. I am an on the road salesman and the truck has never let me down. I now have over 205,000 miles on it and get about 21 miles per gal. Its never been tuned up, nor has the timing belt been changed. I have no doubt the truck will keep on going.
The suspension appears like a 4-wheel drive, especially when I had over size tires on it. The interior is very comfortable. The ride is smooth. I don't care for the stereo/radio.
Needs better stereo/radio and speakers.
2005 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab Limited 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Purchased truck with 65,500 miles on it and replaced two small dash bulbs and compass, but extended warranty took care of that. Other than that, the dash will rattle a little when cold, but truck is VERY sound. Power is very much still there with the 4.7 V8. I owned a (NEW) 2004 Chevy Suburban 4x4 and had 14 problems within 18 months of purchase. I'll definitely buy another Tundra!
Power back window that NO OTHER manufacturer can match!
Improvements made to newer models
2005 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab Limited Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Bought new. Excellent quality, fit and finish. It looks and drives pretty much the same as new. Really enjoy driving it. One issue: Toyota dealers trying to "service" the truck far in excess of what's needed per the factory (examples: Toyota dealer in MDR, CA refused refused to do anything other than a "package" service with all sorts of costly extras; Toyota dealer in Burlingame, CA refused to replace front brake pads w/out machining the rotors despite the rotors being even and smooth). When that happens, find another Toyota dealer (example: the Toyota dealer in North Hollywood, CA was happy to do exactly what Toyota specified and no more -- saved me money and my truck runs great).
Engine: Smooth and plenty of horsepower and torque. Interior: Very comfortable, doesn't show much wear. Ride: Smooth. Exterior dimensions and looks: Perfect. Glad it's durable, as I can't stand to think about replacing it with the next generation jumbo Tundra - too big and goofy looking.
Stronger tailgate please. Ease of service -- shouldn't have to hunt for Toyota dealers willing to stick to factory specifications for service. Toyota should build "x" number of years of scheduled service into the price. Toyota dealers servicing beyond specification -- that's a big negative.
2005 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab Limited Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I bought this truck with 19k on it, it now has 55k,it has been great, only problem was a tire sensor went out, i tow a 6500 lb travel trailer with it and it does well, works, but does the job, only problem is it gets about 10 mpg towing the trailer. comfort, style and power, it has it all.
Rear sliding window and jbl stereo.
Drivetrain clunk from axle wrap starting and stopping, common tundra issue. Could use a bit more towing capacity.
2005 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
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.
Roll down window, powertrain, smooth ride, solid engine.
Better seats (comfort), improved gas mileage, improved turning radius.
