This is my first Toyota and will
certainly not be my last. I have owned
both Chevrolet and Dodge pickups and
am on a first name basis with the
service managers of both dealerships.
My Tundra is easily the most
dependable pickup I have ever owned. I
use this vehicle for commuting in
urban Boise traffic and backcountry
Idaho hunting and fishing trips. On
the road it rides and handles like a
luxury car, while easily conquering
the snow and mud of off-road here in
I am now hooked on Toyota!
Great gas mileage for a V8 engine.
Excellent ride. Very comfortable

This truck has been excellent except
for some minor things. The dash makes
a rubbing creaking sound whenever there
is a temperature change. The gas
mileage seems a little low, ( around 10-
12 in town, 15 on the highway.
It seems they have addressed alot of
the issues on the 2004 model. For
example: connecting the center console
forward to the dash, and the appearance
of the front end.
I have had the truck almost 3 years
now. Have had no problems of any kind.
It is a very comfortable ride with
plenty of power. I put a shell on it &
experienced no performance drop off.
Gas mileage actually improved by 1/2
mi. per gal.
The quiet, smooth ride is a joy on
trips. Can drive all day & not feel
tired or cramped.
