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


I have had this vehicle just over two years. I had an 03 access cab but with a growing family, needed the extra room. I mostly drive in the city and I am averaging around 17 MPG. I would of liked a bit more. The paint, while not bad, easily dings and scratches. Parking, as has been mentioned before, is a chore, so I park way out at most places. The transmission seems to have a hard time finding the correct gear, specially when using the cruise. The automatic downshifting when going downhill is also annoying. Otherwise, I wish it had a little better acceleration. Also, it eats front tires. Alignment OK though. Overall, decent truck, but it doesn't really stand out in any particular category.

Best Features

Roomy, very comfortable. No mechanical problems. A 7/8 truck size is perfect for me.

Worst Features

Not available in 2007, but better gas mileage, better acceleration, hyper- shifting transmission, nicer interior design, better factory equipped tires (Dunlop Grand Trek are junk).
