2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Bought 2007 Tundra new for significantly less than I could have bought a comparable Hemi Double Cab. I currently have 181,000 miles on it and the only fix was the water pump which Toyota covered on warrantee at 96K miles. I have towed an 8K camper from VT to SC twice and although the mileage was terrible (8MPH) no issues to date. I have replaced the brake pads twice and rotors once. All other people I know that own ford, chevy or dodge have replaced wheel bearings, tierod ends, and brakes every 25k miles. This truck is the real deal no matter what anyone says.

2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I bought a new 2007 white Tundra from a local Toyota dealership. The truck drives well and the turning radius isn’t as bad as the 2006 and previous models. It’s also a very well built truck for the most part. I can't complain about the fuel economy given the fact that it's better than the tacoma models of the same year averaging 17.5 mpg.


Favorite Features

A couple of favorite features are the towing capacity and look of the truck. I also love the size and height giving you an excellent view well above other traffic.


Suggested Improvements

The paint job has faded to the point where the clear coat is gone and the paint comes off when trying to buff the truck. Through the blogs and social media I found that Toyota used a single stage paint for their white trucks of that year. If you are going to purchase a tundra from that year, don't buy white.

2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

After reading some of these reviews, I have to wonder if there aren't some Toyota haters posting misinformation. I have a 2007 with 47,000 miles on that I have worked the you know what out of, and I have never had a single issue with it. No stuck accelerator, no rust, no tailgate problems, no radio problems, no vibrating bed, etc. The truck has been bullet proof just like you would expect a truck to be. My only issue with it is it's large size. It's a lot to maneuver, and I sometimes wish it was smaller. On the flip side, I can't tell you how many times I've had the bed stacked full of stuff and was grateful for the size of it.


Favorite Features

Very comfortable and powerful. Great looking truck built in the USA.


Suggested Improvements

Scrap the worthless Bridgestones it comes from the factory with. Went thru the first set in about 20,000 miles and Firestone gave me a great deal on a second set (warranty adjustment) but they wore out as quick as the first. Expect to get between 14-16 mpg on the 5.7 L double cab. Anyone who tells you they are doing better is a liar or can't do simple math.

2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr CrewMax 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased this truck new in 2007 after comparing it to the other offerings available. The space in the back seat of the CrewMax is what really pushed it ahead of the competition at the time. Overall, I've been pleased with the truck. There were no issues during the first 4 years. This last year had a replace the water pump & rear wheel bearings. Not real happy about this, but these two items tend to fail on pretty much every vehicle out there at some time during its life span. With the cabin space and off-road capabilities, I consider this vehicle the ultimate SUV. Works great for my family.


Favorite Features

Rear seat room; Powerful engine; Highway ride; Turning radius (great for a truck); Sliding rails in truck bed are handy to secure loads. Soft open, locking tailgate is great.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel mileage has been what was expected (13-14 city and 16-17 highway), but could definitely be improved upon. The gas pedal is really touchy, which makes it difficult for a smooth start over a bumpy road.

2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab LB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

76K miles. Impressive power, smooth tranny, deep gearing helps pull heavy loads with ease, suspension is supple. With a double cab and full bed, it does flex more than I'd like it too. However, it is well mannered, predictable and quiet. I had to buy different bushings for the cab to stop the dreaded "bed bounce" issue. Mine was unbearable before. Interior-other than the stereo being hard to reach from where i sit, some of the plastics are kind of cheap feeling. If driven at 65 it will do what it states. I average 16.4 with 90% freeway in So Cal (pretty flat). 70-75 mph. Also, it says it has a 26 gallon tank - but I've never filled more than 21...


Favorite Features

-BMW style Orange dashlight, easy on eyes. -Drivetrain - Is the BOMB. Gearing is great, brakes are great, turning radius good. -very quiet for a truck -Tow package has both pins so you don't need to buy different harnesses. -Mileage isn't too horrible considering displacement and output.


Suggested Improvements

a telescoping steering wheel would definitely assist driving position. Fully BOX the frame dang it! Stupid Toyota Limited Slip Diff....NEED LOCKER --> GM, ahem... Make a DIESEL please. Accelerator Pedal (post recall) TOO SENSITIVE. Do not like Sealed Transmission - I like to check it once in a while.

2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr CrewMax SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

My Tundra has been nice, interior is very light colored and shows any dirt. I am experiencing some transmission problems with 4wd high and low, multiple service and dash lights on and issues with reverse lights on while driving fwd. Already had more than one trip to the dealership regarding 4wd issues. The stereo issues happen only in the spring when the temp in the cab goes up and down a lot in one day.


Favorite Features

Sunroof, large back seat, rear sliding window and hwy driving.


Suggested Improvements

Stereo and other electronic issues. 4wd high and low problem needs to be dealt with by Toyota.

2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr CrewMax 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Love the style, look and (when it's right) performance of this truck. I work out of state and put tons of miles on my vehicle, as well as drive it off road quite a bit, making 4wd drive a necessity. After returning from a trip, my 4wd locked up in 4 low - I took it to my local Toyota Dealer who informed me that this is a known problem if you drive your 4wd Tundra anywhere it is wet or cold - this was corroborated by several of the other techs at the Toyota dealership. I contacted Toyota and they said that although there is a known problem, it's not covered under the warranty. $2400 later, my 4wd works, but we've learned our lesson. This model just isn't right.


Favorite Features

The looks, the style, how it drives (when it's operating correctly), tons of storage, the reclining back seats


Suggested Improvements

If you make a mistake, own up to it. Toyota didn't, and has lost a loyal customer because of it.

2007 Toyota Tundra Limited 4dr Double Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

We could not be happier with this truck. Used to haul a 2 horse trailer, an equipment trailer, and to generally carry heavy or bulky stuff around on our small horse farm. Have driven in very hot weather, in deep snow, in heavy rain, and have had no problems at all. Do put on studded snow tires in the winter. Factory tires get great gas mileage but wear quickly. Only complaint is the Toyota standard navigation system, which I find very difficult to use. My other vehicles have Garmin nav, which is far better and a lot less money.


Favorite Features

Towing ability in all kinds of conditions and with all kinds of loads (live loads, high center of gravity, long trailers, etc.)


Suggested Improvements

Toyota standard navigation system (on all of their vehicles) is very confusing and difficult to use for everyone in my family. I have an engineering background. I recommend you do not get the factory Nav and use a Garmin instead.

2007 Toyota Tundra Limited 4dr CrewMax 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is now my fourth Toyota truck I have owned, and the first three were amazing having put on 450000 kms, and not needing anything except for regular maintenance. I have to say as much as I love the detail, and style, I am not impressed. I had an issue loading my ATV into the back, causing the tailgate to deform, I had to research that issue and found there had been a service recall, however the Service manager at the dealership took some persuading even to look it up, however in the end it was fixed at no cost. Secondly, the rubber rain track on the roof had to be reinstalled once under warranty during a car wash, however within a year it had blown out while driving down the highway.


Favorite Features

Styling, Design, performance, still an excellent truck, just not as good as it was


Suggested Improvements

Their customer service, and satisfaction is down the gutter, right from the dealership right up to head office
