They are expensive trucks, but if you want a truck that will last a long time I believe this is the truck to get. It is fun to drive, and if you throw some off road tires on it, it does pretty darn good off road.

It is a very reliable truck and have had no major mechanical issues. The power is addicting, and can pull just about anything I really need that is within reason (I know it is not a diesel). The fuel mileage is terrible and the gas tank is very small so I can only go about 250 miles on a tank of gas. Knock that in half if towing anything heavy. Maintenance is also pretty high on the truck. 7qt of full synthetic every 5K miles adds up quick. I chose the Tundra for its reliability and I believe that the small scheduled maintenance will be cheaper than owning another brand truck and having to pay for large repairs. All in all if I had to get a new truck it would still be a Tundra.

Light duty work truck full of comfort.

Our 2008 Toyota tundra is my dream truck. The interior is comfortable for long hauls and the bed is big enough for work duty. We use our truck to pull a small 2 horse trailer. . While it is my dream truck there are a few pitfalls. The fuel economy is pretty poor, we average between 16-18 mpg. Also, for the size I wish it had more pulling power. . It drives well and is reliable. The only time we've had any trouble is the first winter we had it and didn't put snow tires on. The 4 wheel drive makes it so it can crawl through anything, especially now with snow tires. . I would highly recommend a tundra to anyone interested in a light duty work truck with complete comfort.

A legend on the road, a beast off the road- the unbelievable Toyota tundra.

The reliability of a Toyota tundra is absolutely unbeatable. The suspension is incredible, on-road, or off-road, it never has any issue. The interior is simple and clean, and easily cleaned. The look of the vehicle is sharp, and very attractive to the eye. I have done some minor upgrades to the suspension of the truck and new wheels and tires, and it still drives like it is brand new with oversized tires on it. I've honestly never met another Toyota tundra owner like me, that has not absolutely loved their truck. I will most definitely buy another Toyota tundra for my next vehicle. I will always buy a 4 wheel drive as well.
