my 2006 just hit 30,000 miles. i bought the 7 year extended warrenty and that expired 2 years ago. eveything on the truck leaks or toyota lies and tells me something is broke. yes 30,000 miles. i just got my rear manifold fixed. toyota said the gasket was leaking. 450 dollars later another mechanic found it was not leaking. im out of that money. toyota wont stand behind what they say. my water pump is leaking. a whole bunch of other stuff is leaking. they want 2000 buck now for the other stuff. i dont know if i want to sell the truck or nickle and dime it to death. just confused as to what to do. everyone says its the cheapest truck to own. im just not to sure any more.
make it so it don't leak after the warranty expires
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!
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!
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
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.
Perfect all around truck, great gas millage and reliability.
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.
All the truck needs is stiffer suspension on the back.
Stronger Rear differential (2000-2006 models equipped with 4.10 diff).
Bought this truck used with 14,000 miles in 2008. Now has 56,000 miles and needs it's first pair of brakes. It's a V8 so gas/fuel consumption is not like a PRIUS so I'm not whinning. I average 18 mpg mix hwy/city and about 19-20 hwy. Tows my 18' Lund fishing boat nicely. 6' bed is a must, I didn't buy a new Tundra because of the bed. The crew cab is great, handles 5 adult passenger w/ ease. Interior is ok, when it's cold, it creeks when you go over bumps. Parking is a-ok, like any truck, it won't have turning radius like my wife's Lexus. Overall, I love it, and plan on keeping it for a LONG LONG LONG time! These trucks are also hard to come along. If I find another one, I might snatch er' up
V8, 4x4, rolling rear window, truck bed, crew cab
Paint is slowly peeling underside of my fenders, but I drive through gravel roads so it doesn't surprise me.
