Tundra double_cab is a standout
By Rich on


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


Just put 1500 miles on a Tundra Limited double-cab in Colorado and Wyoming--pavement and rough back road driving. This is a very good truck. Smooth powertrain, quiet ride, refined chassis and suspension. Got 19-20 mpg on the highway driving the 65-75 mph speed limits (this is on a green engine). Seats front and rear are very comfortable. I like the leather better than I thought I would. The bed is long enough to sleep in, unique for double-cabs with a non-eight foot bed. Not a single reliability issue with anything. This truck runs more quietly than my 95 Saab 9000. Ground clearance under this truck is best in class at 12+ inches.

Best Features

(1) Smooth, quiet powertrain (2) Bed long eqnough to sleep in (3) 12+ inches of ground clearance (4) Excellent seating comfort (5) Better than expected gas mileage (6) Power down rear window (7) Five speed transmission with o/d (8)

Worst Features

(1) color selections are too limited (2) cruise control setup causes too much shifting on highways (3) no power seat for right passenger (4) low beam illumination is weird (5) I waited and waited for a hybrid (6) instruments and controls could be more readable and more logical
