I have only been on a few road trips, but I love my truck! I am a Toyota girl and with vehicles like these, I will always be loyal. This truck drives very smoothly and quiet. The stereo is great. There is a ton of room.
Stereo. Tons of power! Looks great, very sexy. Lots of room and storage.
Gas mileage is awful. I only get about 13 mpg highway. My husband says it can pass everything but the gas station. I wish auto lights were standard because I keep forgetting to turn them on. Also there is no need for the center console to store files (kind of weird).
2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr CrewMax SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I owned a Ridgeline before this one but that would be tough to compare because they are made different and there is plus and minus in both, but they are the 2 best quality built trucks on the market the ones that down talk them don't know what a truck is all about or they just have bad luck and trust me as far a gas mileage a lot of people exaggerate about it. I have a heavy foot and I do mostly in town driving and I get about 14 to 15 which is not bad for a V8. I've owned a 97 Ford F150 ext. cab 4.6 V8 and a 04 Chevy Trailblazer ext. with a 6cy. that got worse and all of the other brands have a lot more problems.
Lots of interior room. Lots of power. Made well compared to many others
Go back to using more brass plated screws, you won't see any rust on them.
I traded my 2005 Tundra for a 2008 Tundra so we could tow a travel trailer. We have the trailer, but have not had it on the road yet. However, careful recording of fuel consumption (not towing) reveals that we get nearly 18 MPG on the highway, and 17 around town, which is quite a bit better than the older Tundra. The new one has the 5.7 liter V8. Bring the trailer home over The Cascades, the truck had no problem maintaining speed up the steep grade to Government Camp on Mt. Hood, although we are restricted to 50 mph for the first 500 miles of towing. We're very satisfied with the truck.
Very comfortable interior, quiet, solid. Tow/haul feature on the automatic transmission.
Only 100 miles! Nice so far, no bed bounce on 66 which is a concrete highway. Lots of power, interior is nice but some unusual nooks and storage places. Bluetooth and navigation are great as is the sound system. It is a big truck, will take some getting used too. Gas mileage is around 15 mpg so far. No weird rattles or vibration yet.
Nice bright head lights, navigation, bluetooth, firm heated front seats, very powerful 5.7l engine.
Gas mileage - maybe cylinder deactivation? Some of the interior colors are strange.
Fuel economy: we all would like 100 mpg but this is a truck and economy is better than any full size truck I have owned. Interior: I forego pretty for functional this truck is functional. Ride: if you never go off road or plan to push this truck to its load limits pass on the off road package. Love my truck: quality, fit, finish, win win win. If you need a truck this is it, if you don't but just want a truck do your home work and understand how the package you're paying for will effect the ride and handling, but this truck will have a trim level you will be happy with. Sorry but this truck blew away my beloved red ram!
The quiet ride, power, handling, ability to manual shift the auto trans, a real plus and fuel saver in rush hour xway traffic
