I waited for this truck and I'm glad.

Vehicle2004 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab SR5 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewThe engine produces solid performance.
The towing ability is adequate. The
bigger V8s offered by other trucks
boast better towing, but most guys like
me won't ever come close. I'm sure my
Tundra will pull a camper with much
more ease than any V6, and that's good
enough. The many cool features impress
me. I do have to say though that thus
far the mileage has been very poor. All
in all, my decision was based on
getting the most reliable 4-door full
size pickup out there, that could fit
in a normal garage, and having good
toys and performance. Acceleration is
solid, but it would be fun to have a
little more power. To conclude, I'm
glad I waited.
Best FeaturesThe solid performance(could still be more powerful), power rear window, cool TDI ignition, tumble seats, optional JBL 3 in 1, good interior space, and other stuff all make a good vehicle for my needs as a guy getting ready to start a family.
Worst FeaturesMileage is a concern, although I suppose it's just part of owning a heavy (5000 lb), 4 door truck. I knew owning a truck would be bad(having always owned four cylinder cars prior), but MAN. I'm getting 12-14 in the city and 17-18 on the highway for an average of about 14...yikes.
