I've had this vehicle for seven years now. I hope to keep it for another ten or fifteen.

First of all, I like having a big bed in the back of the truck. I can haul lumber, trash, and just about anything I want. Another thing that I like is that I have a double cab. With a family of five, we really need that second row of seats. Finally, being a Toyota, it's been a very reliable vehicle. As for dislikes, the gas mileage is about sixteen. I wish that it was a better than that.

Dependability of Toyota is second to none!

I was in an auto accident in 2009 which happened in a car. After my accident I wouldn't ride or drive in a car, I didn't feel safe. When we bought our 2011 Toyota tundra I finally felt safe again. The overall sturdiness of this vehicle makes me not to have panic attacks. The comfort of the seats from a scale of a 1 to 10 would be a 10 and the performance of this vehicle cannot be beat.

2011 tundra crew cab pleases.

The 4. 6 l 2011 tundra is a great pickup. It tows well even with loads near capacity. The interior is very roomy and well thought out except the rear beams block a bit of your side view. My only other gripe is the fuel economy which is usually around 15 mpg unloaded. Overall a great vehicle. It will do anything it is competition will do. Just do not expect exceptional mileage.

The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is C0M.
