2008 Toyota Tundra Regular Cab Tundra Grade 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Have had the Tundra for 18 months. Use it for work, pulling a 12 x 6 covered trailer and for long trips. Bought the truck used with 12000 miles on it and have not had any problems. Performance is good, fuel mileage is good for this size truck (19 on road) and ride is great. Don't disagree about the oil change procedure, it is a pain! The bed is short, but fixed that by putting on a Leer Topper, painted with a matching color. Really nice and provides lots of room. Would I buy it again, yes!


Favorite Features

The best features; power, towing, roll down back window, tinted windows, reliable and super comfortable. The ability to turn off interior and back lighting is nice. Don't forget that this was designed to be a "work" truck, not a limo.


Suggested Improvements

Find another way to change the oil and a better grade of radio would be nice.

2008 Toyota Tundra Regular Cab Tundra Grade 2dr Regular Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I had the V8 in a 05 Tundra and got better mileage than this one with a 6 cyl but it has the power. If you get the V8 you will get 2 or 3 mpg better at least. I think I will wait for the hybrid when I get a new one. I really love this truck and the reg cab looks tougher than the dbl or crew


Favorite Features

Roomy especially if you like to have the window down and elbow out the window without touching the back edge. If you typically put the seat all the way back most other trucks the window is smaller check it out if you are a big guy. This feature is really nice


Suggested Improvements

Hybrid

2008 Toyota Tundra Regular Cab Tundra Grade 2dr Regular Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Need a part? Be ready to dig DEEP. As an example one steel stamped (basic) wheel: $180.00. The plastic insert that fits around the lugs? $98.43. If you do the math, just the wheels and plastic insert is over 10% of the full purchase price of the truck. Toyota charges big time for parts. Gas mileage? V-6: window sticker from Toyota said 19. I get 18, then 17 now 16. My Ford F-150 V-6: always @ 20. The Ford V-6 eng. was larger.


Favorite Features

Interior design, shift on command trans. radio.


Suggested Improvements

The jack will not raise the front of the truck high enough to change a tire. The interior air is taken from under the hood/eng. compartment. Vent on a hot day? Forget it. Interior filter: 5K miles completely plugged and broken, blowing filter particles into cab. Noisy exhaust. '08 Tundra draws flies!

Review

Toyota built this truck for eye appeal. Look closely at the mechanicals and you will find a light duty, cheaply built truck. How this thing ever made Motor Trends "Truck of the Year" award, I'll never know. I traded in a '99 F-150 for it. The 150 was a much better mechanically engineered truck-hands down. Have owned trucks/heavy eq. 34 yrs. do all my own work on everything I own, have an extensive background in mechs. This truck is a piece of junk!

Build a truck. Not an oversized passenger vehicle.
