I have a 2007 Tundra, their is a Technical Service Bulletin (T-SB-0101_12 they know these trucks rust in particular areas. Regardless of age they know it rusts faster than normal. I have had topper on my truck as long as I had it and it rusted from bottom to bed surface. I am not talking about small areas but large areas 4-6" circles with. Very very sad!
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.
I bought a new 2007 white Tundra from a local Toyota dealership.
The truck drives well and the turning radius isnt as bad as the 2006 and previous models.
Its 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.
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.
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.
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.
Very comfortable and powerful. Great looking truck built in the USA.
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.
We really love our truck have had to have the radio replaced still the channels will fade in and out at times.have lost the rubber strip on the top right side in car wash , but as far as the performance of the truck could not be happier my husband get mad because I do not want him to drive it .
