This truck will go through brakes every 25000 miles. I have the proof in the repair tickets. When I complained to the dealership they said well you do pull a trailer with it. Excuse me the trailer has it's own brake system, I even disengaged it to see how bad it would drag on the truck and it definately slowed down much slower without the trailer brakes so they are doing their job. I have purchased the third and final factory warranty at a cost of 3000 plus because of the expensive repairs this truck has had. so on top of a hefty selling price add almost 10,000 to that to keep it on the road. In addition Toyota gives me nothing to drive when they have it torn down. We have consistently complained for several years about the gas pedal (the one involved in the deaths and lawsuit) Yup that's my 07... and they tell me they cant do anything but put splints in and they last for a week if your lucky. Their solution, trade it on on a new one so they can make another 50,000 on me. Are they nuts? Ford and Chevy would love to get a hold of this story...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sunroof, large back seat, rear sliding window and hwy driving.
Stereo and other electronic issues.
4wd high and low problem needs to be dealt with by Toyota.
