The power of the truck is great and hauls anything. The problems are with the plastic, it is junk. The bevel around the stereo took five trips to the dealer and still creaks bad when cold. The driver side seat belt was noisy until after four trips to the same dealer and speaking with the manager got the problem resolved. The TRD is absolutely the most unforgiving off-road package that I have ever had for commuting. You get bounced all over the place. Watch out for the bumps even a small one causes the whole inside to creak bad and your hips will hurt. My twelve year old daughter can't even sit in the back without her legs hurting. The seats are out dated and shake. Wind noise is very high.
The power train is great with not too bad of fuel economy. The durability of a tundra is evident. The 4x4 is great in the snow but the thump initially when engaging is less than desirable.
Better plastic which is fitted better. Needs to be better built inside. Scrap the dash all together. Better sound and seats which went out in the eighties. Scrap the Bilstein shocks and TRD, which I will never purchase again. Good if you have to drive off road all day long or you have ear plugs
