Reliability is a staple when it comes to Toyotas and it shows.

The Toyota tundra is a reliable and dependable truck. With routine oil changes and regular maintenance I am at 120, 000 miles with little to no issues. The tundra is able to reliably pull any trailers I need (car hauler, uhaul, horse trailer, etc.). The braking system and tow package are a definite plus for pulling anything!

Doesn't have a great radio. It's power and 4x4 capabilities make it a good for a work vehicle.

It looks nice from the outside. It looks very modern and has a good sized bed. On the inside it's not the most luxurious truck but it's comfy. The 2013 model doesn't have the greatest radio either. But overall it's a good work vehicle and nice for a personal vehicle because of its modern and fierce look.

It is a gas hog!! We went from 15 mpg down to 14 mpg. It also has a very small gas tank, which means we have to stop often for gas. There is no ventilation to the back seats.

There are a couple of things I got used to using when I had a chevy that I miss on this truck--being able to lock the windows and doors individually, the GPS system blocks half the screen when you are on an interstate and you only see part of the road. Other than those two quick items, I love my truck!
