Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Seat comfort
Advice: Don't buy it...The 2.7 L engine is underpowered for use in a 4x4. The 5-speed manual transmission is the worst shifting transmission I've ever driven - feels like clutch not fully engaging. Suspension is nice for a truck, but had to upgrade to gas shocks. The truck comes with a plastic bed made in Mexico - need I say more... Overall, I'd wished I'd purchased something else! Oh, and each time I've contacted the dealer about a problem, I get ignored.
Pros: The power and the new look
Cons: no competition
Advice: go check them out!!!Best Truck ever!!!
Cons: Bumpy ride on the freeway
Advice: Test drive one and you will be soldI am more than satisfied with my Crew Max Tundra! I have always owned a pick up truck and this is by far the best one. Other trucks pull up next to me to test the power and I have not been beat yet. Go check one out yourself, this truck rocks!
Pros: The ride handiling
Cons: The smallish grill.
Advice: It will pull,hall or 4x4 to your hearts content with lots of comfort.I have 10,000 miles on my tundra and had no problems with it. I had a ram 2500 diesal 4x4 quad cab before. Also a 1999 chevy one ton for door 2x4 so I do know about larger trucks. First of all I am as picky about every squeek rattle,driving issue as anyone! when I drive the tundra it is solid with no drift,shake or squeeks. I pull A Kubota 30 horse tractor as well as my masonry contracting supplys. I use this truck but also care and maintain it myself so I can personly see any problems like oil leaks or loose ball joints etc. I know it has low miles but this very consistant planted truck does what I ask with no sign of problems or downfalls. plus you con take it off road because the truck has a suspension not to stiff.
Pros: The spacious inside
Cons: Handleing in the Snow/rain
Advice: Only buy where there is no snowThe truck drives great in perfect conditions, but once the sun goes down and the ran or snow comes falling out of the sky its a drive from hell. I would drive over a little snow drift on the road and end up doing a 360 because the traction was so bad. My sister's plymouth neon (very small car) could handle that snow without a problem. Im very disappointed in this truck.
Cons: Tough for my grandparents to get in and out.
Advice: Get a TRD packageI have almost 30,000 miles on my truck now and it feels like it's just now starting to break in! Mileage is even starting to improve, I'm getting an average of 18+ and drive in town mostly. I can't stress enough how many people ask my how I like my truck, I have a loaded quad cab long bed 4 x 4 with the TRD package w/tow. Love it! Just a tip though, I have the silver paint and HIGHLY recommend it for a long lasting clean look. My neighbor just asked me yesterday if I just waxed it, I haven't waxed it once since I've had it LoL. I do use a touch-less car wash though, it's never had a brush on it........that helps IMHO. Good luck in your next truck choice, I looooooove mine :0)
Cons: seats. i'm 6'2' they fit a smaller person better.
Advice: be prepared for sticker shock!Fast and good looking.
