Toyota tundra great truck the rear window rolls down to. It cool to watch.

The things I love about my tundra are it is very roomy, the back seats give extra leg room a lot of extra legroom. The seats are very comfortable especially for long trips. You can have your cell phone hooked into the truck system itself and answer calls with a touch of a button. It has cruise control it has a very smooth ride even over speed bumps.It's a big truck which makes me feel safe. It's not like little trucks where you are so close to the ground. I would not trade my truck for anything. The not so great things are it's a gas hog, parts are hard to find for this truck body shops have to special order parts. The truck bed itself is only 5 and a half feel long. Its shorter than others. But all and all I think this is a great truck.

The truck is dark grey, double cab and cloth seats.

The truck is a great truck but just a little out of date. Instead of being able to play my phone through the radio or connecting my phone through Bluetooth, I have to use the AUX cord. If I do not have the cord then the radio it is. The truck is smooth driving with a big bed on the back. The thing I do not like about the truck is the gas mileage. The gas mileage is not worth much. I drive 20 mins to work everyday then 20 mins back home. Six days a week I am driving to work and have to fill my gas tank at least twice. This is what kills me about gas and trucks.

My vehicle is dependable on winter roads and useful for off-road type work.

It's big enough and powerful enough to pull a trailer. We live in the country and utilize the truck bed for many things. It's also 4 wheel drive which is important in our area because we get snow and winter weather about 5 months out if the year. The only dislike about the truck is the interior, I wish it was "tougher", it always seems dirty and is difficult to clean, between little kids and living out of town it gets pretty messy.

Beautiful gray/silver car with 2 front seats and 3 back seats.

My vehicle is great for many reasons. The first reason is because I just over all love the way it looks. My second reason is because I love the way it drives. It works very well, and the miles on it are also fantastic. It even has a TV on the back which makes it perfect for long trips. This summer I even drove it to Arizona with the family. Overall I really recommend the car.

- Arie G

Very reliable and strong engine.

It has been a very good truck. Reliable and strong. Purchased the basic interior. Vinyl floor and seats no added electronics. Very comfortable seats and interior. Also, strong engine. We have hauled a lot with this truck and it has never let us down. We plan on keeping the truck and will purchase another Tundra in the future.

- Susan S

The limited addition has the emblem of whatever state you buy it in.

I have never had any problems at all with my truck. It has been a very good one. It is a limited edition I just wish they came in any color besides silver. If you are making a long trip it's perfect because it's great on gas mileage it can be a standard are an automatic and the back seat has a lot of room.

Rock solid reliable truck you will love.

My Toyota tundra is super reliable. You can always count on this truck to get you to and from home safely. It always starts and runs well it is the old tried and true and we love it! I would certainly recommend a Toyota tundra for anyone looking for a truck with excellent reliability and resale value.

- Sandy J

The dependable pickup truck.

My vehicle has a decent amount of space, not only for people to fit into it but also for equipment. It runs well with regular maintenance and has had no major issues. It's a great vehicle to use for work. Not too big and not too small. Even with fairly high mileage it still performs awesome.

- Amanda M

Looks tough and also acts tough.

No problems at all, very reliable love the backup camera, seats are comfortable, has a lot of get up and go. Only gets about 15 miles to the gallon city. I am tall and do not have a problem getting in the cab. Shorter people would probably like to have the extended step to get in.

- Nan M

Why to buy a Toyota tundra.

Really a great truck. Excellent vehicle support from the dealer. Would buy another one tomorrow if I needed it. Great driving, reasonable fuel mileage. Really great towing and hauling capacity. This vehicle is a great value for the money. It is never given me any trouble. .

- Clement P

It's a great truck and safe, and decent gas mileage.

Very reliable, very safe, it's fun to drive, great in the snow and bad weather, bought my first Tundra in 2001 and I have owned one ever since, myself and my wife and daughter an son-in-law own Tundra, I know someday my son will buy one, I love the black one I have.

- Gary H

Spacious and comfortable Toyota tundra.

Interior is very spacious and is capable of being a family vehicle because there is ample room for car seats. Adults will not feel cramped if sitting in the back alongside a car seat. Makes long road trips very comfortable. Handles well in inclement weather.

- Jose A

From my experience Toyota tundra's are the most reliable trucks on the road.

I like how smooth my tundra drives. I really like the back up camera and caution sensors that help when backing up into tight spaces. I really do not have any complaints about my tundra. I have driven it over 150, 000 miles and haven't had a single problem.

- Mark P

Tundra pickup truck is a genuine workhorse.

Although offered only as a half-ton model, our 2012 Toyota tundra full-size pickup is a very capable machine, with horsepower and towing. This pickup is the ultimate people-hauler and can easily carry 6 adults. The tundra will hold excellent resale value.

- Cheryl E

It is sometimes difficult to see all surroundings -- especially in confined situations.

It's great for hauling stuff. Can get all of our camping gear into the bed. It's been very reliable -- no major mechanical issues. As easy to drive as a car. Gas mileage could be better. It is a tight fit in our garage.

- Ken O

It is in great shape in every way. Strong and appearance are good

The truck is a great trailer puller, comfortable, and easy to drive. Moving a year and a half ago was helped by the truck. On the other hand, parking is sometimes a bit difficult due the size and gas seems to go faster

- Bob M

Toyota Tundras are the best built trucks on the road!

Nothing but love for my truck. It sits up high and rides super smooth. The interior is roomy, quiet, and comfortable. The build quality is excellent; no service issues at all...80000 miles and only oil changes!

- Adam M

It can hold a lot in the bed and is very useful for doing projects because of this.

The truck looks good and has held up well. The lock on the passenger side no longer works with the key fob. It was already fixed, yet is not working again. Other than that, the truck is still good.

- Jamie K

Toyota Tundra is the way to go if you want comfort!

- Deanna M

My truck is very reliable, spacious and comfortable.

No complaints about my Toyota tundra. It runs great, has a lot of room and is very comfortable. Best thing about my truck is it is also a 4x4 and we can take it anywhere.

- Michelle P

It runs great and is is easy to handle on the road.

I've always wanted a truck, so when I retired, I bought one. It's fun to drive and handles great. Only thing I don't like is that it is hard for my wife to climb into.

- John C

That although it is a truck it can still work as a family vehicle.

I like that there is enough room for my children in the backseat. They fit comfortably. I don't like how it goes through gas so fast. Other than that I love my tundra.

- janell c

Size, dependable, and reliable vehicle that is a beast in Maine winters.

Its a truck that stands up to the competition and an engine that delivers.
