2003 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Truck is a 2000. Many quiet recalls. .
Wrong dip stick, Replaced rear shocks,
CD player. Trans shifting, security
system, and rear door problems. Really
bad brakes. Still not fixed after 2 +
years. Weak low-end torque. Fair fuel
economy. Too soft a real work truck.
Not designed for recreation either.
Useless rear seat. Weak bumpers. Trans
is cold blooded. Up shifts too soon
when cold. Too much tappet noise for a
new truck. Rear door mechanism needs
work. Not a serious truck. Don't be
suckered in by resale figures, or
reliability ratings, or sales hype. Buy
one of the big three or a Tacoma would
be a better choice.

Best Features

Straight forward layout under the hood. Generally good ride. Smaller size than the other trucks.

Worst Features

FIX THE DAM BRAKES! Needs four wheel anti lock disc brakes. More engine and accessory choices. A more powerfull V8 to start with. A rear seat you can actully use. A Club Cab version like the Ford Sort Trac. Stiffen the rear springs. Make the Tundra a good mid size truck.
