The cd never worked it eats cd's, never fixed. Immediately after the warranty went out 2 expensive air pumps went out. Toyota is aware of the problem in these trucks, parts to replace are on back order. We are paying 920.00 a month for a truck we can't drive. They have no idea when parts available. The repairs take an hour and truck has been in shop over a week and no idea when parts will be in. Dealership has no compassion for our problems. We thought we would have a dependable vehicle. We have only had 1 year.

fewer break downs and parts available , especially with known problems
My wife and I had been shopping for a truck for quite some time. We do a lot of weekend projects renovating houses and needed a vehicle that could support our growing family on trips to home depot and family vacations. My mind was set on the Chevrolet Silverado but my wife had looked at the Tundra and insisted that I take it for a test drive. Being a good husband I promptly did so, and was blown away. The amount of space in the truck is amazing. Others have talked about bed bounce but I have yet to encounter it and I have taken several long road trips in the truck. My only problem so far is when I first purchased the truck I had a defect in one of the tires. Dealer service was horrible.
Engine power, amount of passenger space in the rear seat, overall ride
Trucks fine, work on customer relations in the service department
I have had this truck for a year and a half now and it's falling apart. None of the lights work inside, I can not turn up or down the volume on the radio, the steering has gotten so loose and I could swear the tie rods are broke. I had high hopes for this truck but no go.
It's been 6 months since we purchased our '07 in April '08. And we have no regrets. We don't haul anything big like trailers, but we do a lot of activities like paddling, fishing, diving, surfing and wanted something that was nice, reliable and could go anywhere. The truck is thirsty and living on Maui with no freeways probably doesn't help fuel consumption. However we did choose the Bigger V8 for fun and not fuel consumption. Taken the 4x4 TRD off road and I have not had to put it into 4 LOW. Truck is too wide to get into areas that most jeeps can get too. I've put 10,000 miles in 6 months and changed the oil twice. No problems to report of. A good buy. Gets a lot of oohs/ahs.
Roominess. Hydraulic truck bed. Great ground clearance. Major Power. Huge brakes. Full size but still fits in normal stalls. Sliding rear seats.
My wife and I purchased this vehicle less than a year ago to be our primary vehicle. We've regretted buying it every day since! Toyota won't tell you there's a very real "bed-bounce" problem on many freeways (particularly Southern California) and the fuel economy isn't nearly as good as they claim. The truck hesitates at times, too, when you try to accelerate (because of towing differential) from a stop. It's not a $40,000 luxury car. It's a very nice "work" truck, but do not buy this truck if you want a comfortable drive on most concrete freeways! If you drive with infants or children, do not endanger them by putting them in this truck!!
The center console is spacious and makes a nice arm rest. The stereo system, too, is better than expected.
New springs, new tires, and perhaps a heavier bumper to mitigate the bounce.
