More than I ever expected!
By Eric on
Vehicle2005 Toyota Tundra 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewI upgraded to this truck (Regular Cab
4WD V8) from my V6 Tacoma because I
needed more hauling power and more room
in the bed. I have driven this truck
11,500 miles in 6 weeks, sometimes
hauling a double axle 16' car trailer
and loading heavy car parts in the back.
The Tundra's fuel economy while towing
is much better than I expected,
especially with non California gas.
Build quality is excellent, with my only
complaint being the cupping of the front
tires-the dealer found the front end
alignment to be 7 degrees off! I bought
the strip model with real window cranks
and rubber floor mats for ease of
maintenance. I drove them all,but one
thing was missing-the Toyota reliability!!!
Best FeaturesMy favorite feature has to be the drive train. I was disappointed that a 6 speed manual trans offered with the V8, but the 5 speed auto has been a real pleasure. Acceleration is smooth, and passing power is enough to make a sportscar blush! 4WD traction is unbelievable in snow AND mud!
Worst FeaturesThe only petty improvement I can think of is to not put the cup holder in front of the heater controls and the cargo lamp button. Unfortunately, I don'thave a better place to suggest. Everything else about the Tundra is top of it's game
