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


Review

l purchased because my brother has one. And he puts a 4x4 thru its paces, so l knew it was one tough truck. Although it is primarily the family hauler, it's going to be used for its 12" ground clearance purpose occasionally and plenty of power for hauling the camper. Back to back driving the Ford 5.4, the Tundra kicked it power wise. lt drives like a luxury car and get almost 20 mpg hwy.


Best Features

Power rear window & sunroof; heated leather; drivability; looks; steering wheel controls


Worst Features

llluminate all power switches; heated seats take TOO long to heat up; turning radius in parking lots

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


Review

Owned a 2005 Toyota Tundra, 4WD crew cab for 3 years now. Drives alright. Ergonomics of layout of controls is not great. Large blind spots on either side. Tows my 28 ft. trailer on level land alright but the least hill and the V8 really struggles. Good 4 wheeling truck. Not enough power and torque, I don't think I will buy one again.


Best Features

Stereo sounds decent.

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


Review

This is my second Toyota pickup truck. It replaced a loaded f150 crew cab that replaced my T100. Really like the truck, wish the mileage was a bit better, but its getting about 17 now, and that is with a good percentage of stop and go. 18000 miles in a year and a half and its never been to the dealer. Engine has good torque and is very smooth. Plenty of access under the hood for routine service items, not like my f150 that had everything buried. Interior plastics are ok, doesn't feel like a Lexus, but is just as good as the ford it replaced.


Best Features

Level of refinement of the vehicle, smoothness of the V8, ride. Reliability, service access under the hood.


Worst Features

Radio needs some help, even with a 6 speaker system, it lacks any bass. Turning circle is very big, makes it hard to park.

Review

Love the interior and truck size. Hate the mileage. Extremely poor for a small V8. Poor workmanship. never expected a recall from a Toyota. Tire wear was excessive.


Best Features

Electric rear window.


Worst Features

Offer electric window in all pick ups. Better fuel mileage. Pick a different tire for the TRDs.
