"I live near the mountains and have worked my Tundra hard. If I am not pulling our trailer house up hunting I am towing a skidsteer on a flatbed trailer. This tundra tows better than my dads dodge with a V-10. I would certainly buy another one. I just wished it was a 3/4 ton."
"08' crew 4x4 5.7l. 6000 miles. Lug nuts rusting already, heater output nowhere near what my silverado was, oil changes are a mess, and motor sounds like it's coming apart when cold, and xm radio reception stinks with a display that reads jibberish once and a while. Mileage is averaging around 13.5. Power is nice though.
Will be selling soon."
"I was given the opportunity to drive one of these for a few months back in 2008 as a part of my job, the boss wanted me to do a comparison between a 2005 F150 we owned and the Tundra so he could decide if our aging F150 fleet would go to a Tundra Fleet in 2009. Well, we did our homework and broke things down by expense for addons to each vehicle, maintenance costs and we even broke out the old gas millage calculator... The savings were easily apparent with the F150s, better deal overall for the fleet. BUT, the Tundra was a good truck for daily use, lots of power, felt reliable, we carried rock in the bed and it handled it well. Only issue I had was with towing stability, put the fear of god in us when the trailer was moving back and forth almost two feet because the wind decided to kick up a bit and Tundra doesn't handle that so well. Anyway, didn't mean to bad mouth it. Last thing I've got say about it is I love the aggressive look, everyone did, I recommend it for anyone not towing big loads over long distances."
