2004 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is the nicest pickup I've ever
driven and really enjoy driving it. I
just wish I could afford to drive it
more. It gets real bad gas mileage
(16mpg) is the best I've achieved so
far. I'm guessing Toyota put the 4.08
rearend in it to compensate for the
less horsepower than the competition.
They could have improved this by
putting more horses in the motor (I've
seen the racing cars, I know they can)
then put a 3.50-3.73 rear in it. If I
were pulling something big I wouldn't
have bought it, I would have gone
diesel. They aren't catering to their
buyers. It does what I wanted just the
mileage is sad.


Best Features

Toyota reliability, the reason I still love it anyway.


Worst Features

As I've already stated, give it some more horses, then change that rearend ratio to something more roadworthy.

2004 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab Limited Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my second Tundra. My 2001,
with ABS, skidded on a wet curve when
I braked, and was totaled (I was hit
by a Camry doing 50 - 60 mph and
walked home!) This time I got the
Vehicle Stability Control package,
along with the Double Cab. I just love
this vehicle (and I'm almost 60). I
get 17.5 miles to a gallon in mixed
city/freeway driving, but I drive
sensibly - gas is $2.20 a gal. The
driver's seat seems worse than
the '01, though. The initial shifting
also appears jerkier.


Best Features

The smooth, noiseless ride. The best fuel economy of the big trucks. The SAFETY of the Tundra!


Worst Features

A more ergonomic driver's seat and a smoother shifting tranny - and this would be a dream ride.

2004 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My Toyota Tundra has been the BEST
Vehicle I have ever owned!!!!
Ford, Chevy or Dodge can not hold a
candle to its performance, workmanship
and above all its reliability. I have
owned Ford Chevy and Dodge and I am
sorry to say that they have a long way
to go before they can produce a vehicle
that will not fall apart with in a few
years. Let me make it clear, I DO NOT
ABUSE my vehicles, I guess all I'm
trying to say is that our domestic
trucks may be beautiful machines but
they just don't hold up!! Sorry for
being so honest. I'm just sharing my
experience as a consumer.


Best Features

The Tundra is just well built all around.


Worst Features

non at this moment.

2004 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab SR5 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

2-word summarization:
DEPENDABILITY & RELIABILITY! Of
course the Tundra's Gotta have it
factor also played a major roll as
well. ANY vehicle you look at, has to
have a certain "look" which simply
makes you want that vehicle. The
Tundra has TONS of this! In fact,
we've only owned our Tundra for just
about a month and I STILL catch
myself standing in the garage just
looking at the truck, or worse, just
sitting in it! I NEVER thought a truck
could ride this good and be this quite
even with the TRD package! There's
PLENTY of room for my over 6' frame.
EVEN IN THE BACK SEAT! The most
comfortable we tested! Owning a 95
Tacoma with 122K didn’t hurt either!


Best Features

DEPENDABILITY & RELIABILITY: The Toyota name speaks for itself! Exceptional looks, including interior fit & finish! High resale value! WONDERFULLY designed electronic rear window: Why didn't any of the other manufacturers think of this before now? Oh well; their loss, our gain!


Worst Features

Gas mileage is pretty disappointing, even though it is the best of all 5 brands of full-size trucks; but then again, it "IS" a full size pick-up! The limited models are a bit pricey for what you get.

2004 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab Limited 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very comfortable ride, lots of room both
front and back. Makes the trip to and
from work enjoyable. A truck rugged
enough to put through the mud in the
morning then clean it up and it's
stylish enough for a wedding in the
afternoon.


Best Features

Above all the smooth and quiet ride then the heated seats. The stereo system is top notch, and the dog loves that back window.


Worst Features

Lousy tires, read the Dunlop AT 20 Grandtrek 265/65R17 reviews, not very good. In day light, with the headlights on, overhead console goes so dim you can't see it. Hard to access the oil filter without removing the metal splash pan. The limited should come with a 110 Volt AC receptacle.
