Traded a 2003 Chevy Silverado with many reliability issues, most resent head gasket leaking anti freeze. I had it with Chevy quality. The new Tundra is a great hauling machine. I am getting just -1 mpg difference than the 5.3L Chevy. Was concerned about the stiff ride mentioned by other reviews but not much of a problem to me! Very quiet interior for a solid truck. I've owned Chevy, GMC, Ford and Dodge trucks, most were good machines but I am very impressed the Tundra.
Very smooth engine and tranny. I like the transmission "S" position to allow for up and down shift control when towing. Rear windows on doors that roll all the way down. I use this truck for a weekend hauler and this thing controls a heavy trailer very well.
Better tires, tread life will only make about 25,000 miles. Better oil filter placement.
