Tundra Could be Better, Much Better
By Gary Hoyt on


2008 Toyota Tundra Tundra Grade 2dr Regular Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Need a part? Be ready to dig DEEP. As an example one steel stamped (basic) wheel: $180.00. The plastic insert that fits around the lugs? $98.43. If you do the math, just the wheels and plastic insert is over 10% of the full purchase price of the truck. Toyota charges big time for parts. Gas mileage? V-6: window sticker from Toyota said 19. I get 18, then 17 now 16. My Ford F-150 V-6: always @ 20. The Ford V-6 eng. was larger.

Best Features

Interior design, shift on command trans. radio.

Worst Features

The jack will not raise the front of the truck high enough to change a tire. The interior air is taken from under the hood/eng. compartment. Vent on a hot day? Forget it. Interior filter: 5K miles completely plugged and broken, blowing filter particles into cab. Noisy exhaust. '08 Tundra draws flies!

I did the math. 4 tires and 4 covers come to $1113.72. If you paid $11137 for a truck less than a year old, I would expect some really serious issues with it. I would like to know where you found such a good deal though. For that price I could put the 5.7 V8 that you should have bought in it and still come out thousands less than the book value. You should learn basic math before you make claims like that. ((180x4)+(98.43x4))=1113.72. I found a set of 4 new stock wheels on ebay including the lug covers for $375.
