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.
