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

Review

Absolutely solid build quality. Very smooth ride for a truck; by my experience it rides better than a Maxima but not as smooth as a Deville, with much better handling than a 2002 Expedition. The V-8 is powerful and amazingly quiet until you punch the pedal, then it lets loose a smooth growl and pours power to the pavement. Haven't towed anything with it yet, but believe it should handle most boats fine. Seating is comfortable, leather feels smooth yet tough enough to hold up well - heated seats have 2 power levels. If you give this truck a good, detailed visual inspection and compare build quality to any domestic, you will see that it rocks. Embarrassing, but true.

Best Features

Smooth, quiet ride in a capable truck - best blend of comfort and utility on the market today. Bed sides are higher than past models - better capacity. Sound system is clear with good frequency response from bass to treble. Sunroof and rolldown rear window will give a near-convertible experience.

Worst Features

Door handle impedes access to power window controls. Air conditioning controls feel imprecise - why not electronic/auto control? Pay extra for the TRD offroad upgrade to get smaller, less attractive 16" wheels - Ford's 18" wheels look better on a 4X4. Should have gone with stability package over TRD
