Vehicle2005 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewBought this truck new after my 10th time at the shop to fix my 03 Dodge 2500 diesel. The Tundra is a good, reliable truck, in four years it has never been in a shop. I change the oil myself. We live 25 miles from any dealership and the Tundra never needs one. We use it to haul hay, do ranch tasks, tow a stock trailer and our camper on vacations. I try to keep loads under a ton. The Tundra is really comfortable and is great in the snow in 4X4. Spends half its miles in 4X4 on dirt roads, 99% of its time hauling or towing, usually both. Someone needs to tell the Dodge/Ford/Chevy guys a long warranty and free fixes do us mountain folks, far from dealers, NO GOOD!!!
Best FeaturesSize, it fits most payloads (30 small bales of hay or 1 4X4X8 big bale), still fits in a normal garage and gets through an 8'cattle gate. Reliability, nice cab, plenty of room and power. Good brakes. Did I say reliability?
Worst FeaturesStouter rear suspension and frame. Wish Toyota had made a 3/4 ton version of the smaller Tundra.
