This is my first truck. The ride is car like with just a bit more engine noise and vibration. Excellent comfort makes this truck easy to drive. Tons of torque while maintaining smooth shifts. No rattles and an excellent AM/FM CD with four speakers. Great visibility front, rear and sides. The tilt wheel is a must have because it allows for a comfortable driving position as well as making it easy to enter and exit the cab.
I really like the arm rest which folds out of the center of the bench seat. The V-8 engine wants to go and I can accelerate at will. I am eye to eye with the majority of trucks and SUVs.
I dislike the "Tundra" carpeted mats because they slide around on the vinyl floor covering. Oddly, the driver's mat has only one hook to hold it in place while the passenger mat has no hooks at all.
