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


Bought new. Excellent quality, fit and finish. It looks and drives pretty much the same as new. Really enjoy driving it. One issue: Toyota dealers trying to "service" the truck far in excess of what's needed per the factory (examples: Toyota dealer in MDR, CA refused refused to do anything other than a "package" service with all sorts of costly extras; Toyota dealer in Burlingame, CA refused to replace front brake pads w/out machining the rotors despite the rotors being even and smooth). When that happens, find another Toyota dealer (example: the Toyota dealer in North Hollywood, CA was happy to do exactly what Toyota specified and no more -- saved me money and my truck runs great).

Best Features

Engine: Smooth and plenty of horsepower and torque. Interior: Very comfortable, doesn't show much wear. Ride: Smooth. Exterior dimensions and looks: Perfect. Glad it's durable, as I can't stand to think about replacing it with the next generation jumbo Tundra - too big and goofy looking.

Worst Features

Stronger tailgate please. Ease of service -- shouldn't have to hunt for Toyota dealers willing to stick to factory specifications for service. Toyota should build "x" number of years of scheduled service into the price. Toyota dealers servicing beyond specification -- that's a big negative.
