2006 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The double cab gives this truck a very long wheelbase which is great for ride comfort, but bad for turning radius. Also, it makes the truck heavy, so fuel economy takes a bit of a hit. Probably between 16 and 17 MPG on average. Some of the radio controls became "wonky" or uncooperative with age. If you're the "do-it-yourself" type, some standard maintenance tasks are pretty simple on this truck. I replaced the serpentine belt in about 15 minutes having never done one before, and I also replaced the front brake pads and rotors in an afternoon. (I tried to get the rotors turned, but they just needed to be replaced, so that ate up some time.) For auto-mechanic ability, I'm probably about a 5, but these jobs were easier than I expected.

2006 Toyota Tundra Limited 4dr Double Cab 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is the perfect size for a truck. I've owned three F150's and none felt as comfortable as this truck. So far I've had zero problems (other than it loves to drink gas).
My mileage will actually go down and I expect to hit 100k miles around year 2025. With Toyota holding value so well I expect to get most of my money back when it comes time to sell (just before 100k miles).

2006 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Access Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My previous Toyota truck was a 1992 4WD V6 with a 5-speed.
I racked up over 285,000 miles on it with no problems.
Take care of your Toyota, it will take care of you.
Same has held true for my 2006 Tundra.


I found an extremely rare 2006 SR5 Access Cab with the 4.0L and a 6-speed manual transmission and had to have it. Bought it in 2011 with 181,000 miles.
Miles mean nothing on Toyotas if they have been maintained.
Replaced the shocks with Bilstein HD's (Yellow), and it made it ride like a new truck!


With 220,000 miles on it, I am ready to declare my Tundra the worthy successor to the Beast!
Had one single failure, a bad coil, which was easy to replace.
400,000 here I come!


Best Features

Smooth power from 4.0L engine Roomy and comfortable Smooth, quiet ride and great noise isolation Accurate steering makes highway cruising easy Very tight turning radius compared to competition Love my Toyota!


Worst Features

Upgrade to performance brake pads for measurable improvement in performance. Dash material a little plasticky. Durable, but can scratch Stock sound system is pretty weak

2006 Toyota Tundra Limited 4dr Double Cab 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Have the 2006 Toyota Tundra Limited. Best truck. Comfortable, fun to drive, luxury interior, and solid reliability. The truck has 100,000 miles on it and no problems whatsoever. Maintenance is cheap. MPG isn't great, but it is a truck with V8 power. Solid offroader, great for firewooding and hunting. You won't find a better value.
This truck defensibly definitely beats the American competitors.


Best Features

Offroad ready; power


Worst Features

Bigger wheels and tires

2006 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Access Cab Stepside SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Perfect all around truck, great gas millage and reliability.


Best Features

There is lots of talk out there regarding tundra locking on towing power and I strongly disagree with this statement. I have hauled power generators 4-7K lbs all day every day for 5 years and it performed great. I have added couple of lives in the rear suspension to handle extra towing and that made the truck. With the extra help the truck was more stable and it handled 1000lbs of constant weight I would carry on me at all times. The bed thing is the truck is gone my company that i work for decided to replace it for 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 and all the fun ended there.


Worst Features

All the truck needs is stiffer suspension on the back. Stronger Rear differential (2000-2006 models equipped with 4.10 diff).
