Love the legroom, smooth ride, reliable

2012 Toyota Tundra Base

Love the Toyota Tundra. We have kept up on routine maintenance and haven't had any issues. We have the extended cab (4 door) and there is a ton of leg room in both the front and back seats. The towing capacity meets our needs. There are plenty of cup holders, 3 plugs for charging phones/devices, aux input etc.

Lots of room, easy towing capability.

2012 Toyota Tundra Base

My tundra is awesome for the simple fact interior space is the largest in all current crew cabs, with the 5.7l this truck is very fast and almost makes you forget your driving such a large vehicle. Another great thing is that the tundra is strong enough to pull trailers and boats.

Reliable, safe, comfortable truck

2012 Toyota Tundra Base

I enjoyed my truck when first purchased. Safe, comfortable, reliable, easy to drive. I planned on doing a good amount of camping and hiking when purchased however my age and lifestyle changed and I was unable to trade in due to being upside down so I kept the truck.
