2006 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Access Cab 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


I love the quality feel and tight solid body of this truck. I owned an 02 Tundra and was very happy, but the 06 is much peppier, with more horsepower and the new 5 speed transmission is beautifully geared to keep the engine in the proper torque range, so it performs very very well. It's extremely quiet - no wind or engine noise. Nice ride. Got 18 mpg driving 200 miles home from dealer, in spite of over an hour idling along in a huge traffic jam. It's not as roomy or comfortable as the Titan or the Ram 1500, wont haul as much. But I haul only occasional light weight trailers, so a 7/8 size truck fits my needs perfectly. Love it

Best Features

Superior build quality. No rattles. Quiet, nice ride, engine & 5-speed performs beautifully, tight and solid, handles very well. Reliable. Relatively good mileage (18) first 200 mile trip.

Worst Features

See the 07 Tundra. I went for the 06. 2500 rebate. 06 is big enough for me - has been built for several years. No bugs.
