Not perfect, but pretty close
By Andy Bats on


2001 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab Limited V8 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Great truck - 7 years old, but only 35K miles. A couple of things that have made me unhappy - O2 sensors went out, but were replaced under warranty. Asked dealership EVERY SINGLE TIME I took the truck in for service, if the "clunk" noises from the power windows was normal, and was told yes. First service after 3 year/36K warranty expired, my window regulator bolts were loose and needed to be tightened - $185 per door. Cracked exhaust manifold - $1400 to repair - put Doug Thorley headers on for <$1K, made a huge improvement in the fuel mileage and performance.

Best Features

Ride, comfort, styling, durability. Exceptionally smooth engine & transmission (switched to synthetic at first transmission service - man, what a difference - shifts as smooth as waxed glass). Only run premium unleaded, though - it is a Lexus engine (same as the LS400 series), expensive to replace!!

Worst Features

Telecoping steering wheel, auto up & down on both front windows; better build integrity. Seatbelts that actually retract when you take them off (instead of getting stuck in the door jamb and scratching the paint).
