I love my Toyota tundra pickup!

I love my Toyota tundra! The ride is smooth and it handles well. I have had no major problems with it other than battery going dead and having to get a new one. It rides better than my small car. Definitely would rather drive it for long rides. The interior has held up well and so has the exterior. I have bought tires for it but have had no major breakdowns. I love my truck!

- Tia W

Plenty of space and runs forever!

The 2006 tundra is really a great pickup truck. I love the space in the crew cab, and the bed has plenty of room as well (even with a toolbox) for carrying kayaks, an at, or whatever else you need. It is not the most technically advanced vehicle, but upgrades can be done on your own if you'd like. My truck has over 150, 000 miles on it and still runs like butter.

- Joseph L

This truck engine is built to last and is sturdy. The plastic pieces on the inside are easily breakable but the rest of the interior is solid. Great for snow play and going off road.

I like the 4WD options, the large truck bed and the back window that fully retracts. I dislike the poor turning radius as well as the lack of stock runners. The stereo was a 6 disc CD changer which was nice until it stopped working and had to be replaced. The gas mileage is fair. The ride is smooth and comfortable. I love that there are plenty of cup holders.

- Randee L
