The truck has been flawless as far as repairs. I have 25k miles with the 5.7 and avg 16 mpg. I have it in the shop though being upgraded for pulling. It has the power but the 8000 lbs tongue 29' trailer throws it around. The plan is with helper springs it will stop. Overall I am very happy, just cross wind has been a problem. I am also needing new tires as the factory tires are already bold.
2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr CrewMax SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
One was led to believe that toyota was higher quality, but since the start nothing but problems and at 82,000 miles fuel injectors problems on 5.7L engine. Major repair over $ 3,600. Never had a truck with this major repair with less that 100,000 miles. Not built to stand up to heavy duty use.
Fuel economy and power.
Toyota, stand behind your engine until you get the bugs out.
Just another honest opinion. Bought the Crewmax when they first came out. Compared with my other vehicles, I couldn't be happier. I won't mention the brands but they have all been in and out of dealership for repairs. This truck has been the most reliable vehicle I have owned. However, as with all vehicles there has to be a problem. The front diff. Needs repairing. Makes a "woo. Woo" noise once and a while. But Toyota will replace it. Unlike other brands who claim you are hearing things. Tons of power, tons of room, not bad on fuel (87 octane), and will spank a ext. Cab hemi with the supposed 390 hp. (ask my brother ; ) ). Stereo is good not great.
POWER, exterior looks (get tons of complements), interior looks very modern, room, storage,
The 5.7 motor in this truck is years ahead of the others. It is smooth, quiet and the power is unreal. I am getting 14 mpg, and don;t care because it is so much fun to drive. The truck has the TRD dual exhausts and sounds great when you get on it. The limited slip diff is great for gravel roads and snow. I do not use this as work truck, just weekend warrior stuff and commuting. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and practical vehicle.
Engine and drivetrain, see above. Very good ride on our lousy Vermont roads. Build quality seems very good, no rattles, squeaks, etc. Just a fun vehicle to own. Wish I had gotten the crewmax for our three year old. Back seat is cramped on double cab.
If i could get 18 mpg all the time (do get it on the highway) it would be great. No real complaints. Don't believe the naysayers until you have driven a Tundra and judge for yourself.
