Purchased the 4WD EC Limited TRD 1 week ago. Only +/- 120 miles but so far very impressed. Researched all comparable trucks for 6 months before making purchase. Engine is a beast! Not as impressed with the 6 speed tranny as I expected. The 5 speed in our '05 Sequoia is smoother. However, truck is brand new so I may be overly sensitive given some reports of tranny issues I have read. Ride is a bit choppy with the TRD package but I think it will soften over time and the price ($105) with the Limited makes it a no-brainer. Topped off after 1st 1/2 tank of gas and calculated at 12.4 MPG with all driving in town.
5.7 motor of course, easy up/down tailgate.
Limited should have auto up/down windows on driver and passenger. Our '05 Sequoia has this feature and it's an SR5?

I love this truck. I bought this truck in April and I drive it to work and trips and where ever I like to go. I love the look of the truck, I love driving the truck and I definitely feel safe in it, and confident that it won't break down. The interior however is so blahzo. I initially wanted a Ford F150, but the one I wanted with similar options was almost five thousand dollars more than the Toyota. The interior in the Ford felt more solid. I wish I would have gotten navigation and a moon roof. Other than that I would recommend this truck to anyone.
I love the look of this truck! I also love that I can fit my dad (6'2", 350 pounds) in the back seat! I also love that the back window rolls all the way down and I can plug my iPod right now into the stereo!
Make the interior interesting! Make it feel a little more luxurious.
I purchased this truck after my F-150 proved untrustworthy. The Tundra rides very well, very quiet and the engine and transmission are incredibly smooth. It tows our 6500 lb trailer with ease. Not something I could say about our 5.4 L F-150. The brakes are outstanding. The acceleration and handling are fantastic. I haven't experinced the fabled 'bed bounce' even though I have tried to induce it on some washboard gravel roads. I have had it off pavement and the ride is still great.
Ride, power, smoothness. Bigger than our old F-150 but feels less bulky to drive and park. Smooth, quiet ride. Traction control. Powerful and steady tow vehicle.
More readable instrument cluster-hate the tunnels. (I don't know how that got into production.) Better plastic, scuffs too easy. Radio is too far from the driver (I have long arms too). Folding mirrors should be standard.
This is the finest truck I have ever driven. It's got power, style and it is pretty darn comfortable to drive. The MPG is fair, but it is expected for a big V8 truck. The interior is very roomy, has a zillion cup holders and a lot of storage. It did not come with a bed liner so I got the Line-X spray in for it. Love it. It gets a little bumpy at times with the bed empty, but so has every truck I ever had.
Power of the V8, exterior styling, fun to drive, great safety features with curtain air bags and traction/stability control.
The interior was a little disappointing, bed liner should be standard, tailgate should close easier.
