2005 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4dr Double Cab Limited 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased truck with 65,500 miles on it and replaced two small dash bulbs and compass, but extended warranty took care of that. Other than that, the dash will rattle a little when cold, but truck is VERY sound. Power is very much still there with the 4.7 V8. I owned a (NEW) 2004 Chevy Suburban 4x4 and had 14 problems within 18 months of purchase. I'll definitely buy another Tundra!


Best Features

Power back window that NO OTHER manufacturer can match!


Worst Features

Improvements made to newer models

Best Features

Rear sliding window and jbl stereo.

Drivetrain clunk from axle wrap starting and stopping, common tundra issue. Could use a bit more towing capacity.

2005 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4dr Double Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my tundra new in 2005. It has been regularly serviced and to date I have had no issues outside of regular maintenance. Currently I have 69,000 miles and still have the original Dunlop OEM tires. It is about time to replace, but not bad for a truck. The interior is "ok", but the drivetrain is as smooth as silk. Mileage could be better, but it is a truck. Love the Limited slip diff, as well as the roll down rear window.


Best Features

Roll down window, powertrain, smooth ride, solid engine.


Worst Features

Better seats (comfort), improved gas mileage, improved turning radius.

2005 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4dr Double Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned my tundra for four years. It has been a workhorse and still rides like the day I brought her home. Mileage is 15/18 which isn't bad. No problems and engine is still silky smooth. Would buy another one. Tows my boat well and limited slip is very sure footed.


Best Features

Decent ground clearance for a 2wd pickup.


Worst Features

Needs a better stereo.

2005 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4dr Double Cab SR5 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is a 4 year review. This should give used sales a boost. First, the reliability is superior. At 40,000, no major problems except for regular scheduled maintenance. I mainly use the truck for traveling. I average approx. 16 mpg. The comfort exceeds any truck I have owned previously. Handles a heavy load well. Load the truck up with timber and still rides like an SUV. The transmission is exceptionally smooth. After 4 years, my Tundra has held up well. I would certainly buy one again.


Best Features

I appreciate the rear electric slide down window. The 4dr interior space. Drives like a SUV. Smooth transmission. The 4.7L V8 has great acceleration even past 60mph. After 4 years, the build quality stands out.


Worst Features

Improve the turning radius on the 4dr. I wish the 2005 had mp3 audio connectivity.
