Great Pickup!
By I Vernon on


2002 Toyota Tundra 2dr Regular Cab 2WD LB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


I got the stripped model 2DR V6, A/C, roll-up windows, no cruise control, approx. $18,500. This is really a fantastic vehicle except for one nagging problem. The front brake rotors consistently become warped from overheating about every 20,000 miles. The so-called fix is to buy new star adjusters for the rear drum brakes. This does not solve the problem, and Toyota refuses to issue a recall notice or assist owners with this problem. They just sell the star adjustors which do not solve the problem. In standing behind their product, Toyota is becoming more like the U.S. auto producers!

Best Features

Great smooth driving vehicle. Gas mileage at 17-20 mpg is pretty good.

Worst Features

This truck is not an F-150 substitute! It is too small, and doesn't have the size and power to haul and tow the way many people want to use a 1/2 ton pickup. Obviously, the brakes should be fixed.
