I waited until I had put enough miles now I have owned for three years with 80k miles. Only issue that I did have was with radio and brake light which had blown twice and turned out there was shortage in wiring. Cons gas tank is too small. Gas mileage is poor might be better to get diesel f250. Things will tend to fall out if they are on the floor and kids always throw stuff on the floor. I have lost phone expensive headphone that fell down once doors were opened. Infotainment screen is less than garbage if its daylight outside you will not be able to see it. This is problematic when backing. Toyota has known this for years but refuse to fix it. Toyota is ridding on reliability bandwagon and believes consumers will buy anything from them. With poor fuel economy expensive price tag, do consider diesel alternatives - you will likely get same reliability better towing and much much better interior. Remember vehicle is more than engine and transmission
2015 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr CrewMax SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
Purchased new in 2015 an SR5 TRD OffRoad. Previous Toyota owner, first time truck owner. Drove them all before purchase. The others had some "bells and whistles" the Tundra didn't have, but when it came to actual quality of materials and quality of engine feel, the Tundra was clearly better. The crewmax is awesome if you haul people more the sheets of plywood. The engine is powerful, the transmission strong and smooth. MPG is about 13 city, 18 Highway and 15 combined. Its a big truck that can tow almost 10,000 lb trailer. My water pump began leaking at 51,000 and was replaced under standard factory drivetrain warranty of 5 years or 60,000. My Cam tower on passenger side leaked at 35,000 miles and was also repaird under standard factory drivetrain warranty of 5/60,000. Car also came with a standard 3 year bumper to bumper warranty covering everything. I had no repairs first 3 years. If your looking for a great built, reliable, high quality full size truck, and don't need all the "bells and whistles in the interior" do yourself a favor and buy the Tundra....you'll be really glad you did.
2015 Toyota Tundra SR 4dr Double Cab SB (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Nice big truck. 4.6 not the big 5.7, but still goes through the gas. I do not like to drive it much because it is thirsty so I only use it to haul firewood and tow a camper. Did tow a 5200 pound camper with no problem. I see that ford keeps developing new engines and transmissions which made me not purchase a ford. Do not want an unproven engine (6.0 Ford diesel was a disaster). The Toyota 4.6 and 5.7 have been around a while so they have had time to work make the engine reliable. Overall, I am not worried that the truck will break down . I can pass everything on the road but a gas station.
