Love This Old Truck

2002 Toyota Tundra 2dr Regular Cab SR5 4WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Edmonds does not show the 2002 Toyota V8 SR5 Access Cab Tundra so I am putting it in with the 4X4 version.

Best Features

My 2002 Tundra SR5 V8 access cab is still in great condition and runs well after 12 years. Love this Truck! Low mileage and looks great! My favorite features are the quiet smooth ride, cab head room, the back access bench seat for my dogs, the Lexus V8 engine, and the reliability. If you bought a 2014 SR5 Tundra now the price would be close to 50k. I paid 19k for my SR5 and will keep it for a few more years, since it is in great condition! Will get painted and leather added and save 10s of thousands over a new one. The new Tundras are too big and $$$. And the Taco is to expensive for what you get. The access door version only has horrid worthless jump seats. My truck size is :)

Worst Features

The only real issue I have on my truck is the paint now coming off. It has the metallic Thunder Grey. The paint is starting to come off badly on the roof, doors, and hood. I should have got non-met white paint. My brother and friend have the white Tundra and Taco and have no paint peel issues. Also, I have low idle issues. It is not a real problem since the car never stalls but it bugs me. I had everything done including a new throttle body put in and it still idles real low. I also had the dealer and two other mechanics look at it and they said there is no problem and this is a common issue with older Tundras. My brothers truck also idles around 500-600 and mine is 400-500rpm
