Great Vehicle
"This vehicle has a powerful V-8 engine with exhilerating drive, a high capacity towing package. This truck never fails to haul goods and materials, and transport heavy objects. The only draw back to this vehicle is the reality of 15 MPH. After all, it is a truck, perfected for this very purpose, even if it cost a little more at the pump. "

Tundra the last real truck
"In my opinion the 1gen Tundra is one of the few real trucks on the market. Yes most of them have higher miles but what they do have is motors and drivetrains that have proven they can hold up. They are powerful, have plenty of space for a family and can easily be upgraded with today’s sound systems and creature comforts. If you are wanting a Tacoma for their reliability but need more room and more power for towing a decent camper or trailer then the Tundra is your best option. People can complain about the gas mileage but it is not bad at all and it is a truck with a proven 4.7 V8. Sure you may get better gas mileage on a Chevy or a ford but they will not last as long nor hold their value like a Toyota. Another thing I love about these trucks are that Toyota doesn’t change motors every couple of years, the 4.7 V8 is used in many of their vehicles and that says something. "

Great truck
"I’ve only owned the truck about 4 months and I love it. I got the 4.7 V8 double cab 4WD model with nearly 180k. It’s a vehicle you never want to get rid of - with proper maintenance it will outlive me. Comfy daily driver (although 16mpg average will take getting used to coming from 25mpg), tows what I need it to tow (towed a 2010 RAV4 on a trailer without hesitation), and it looks great. One of my favorite features is the fact that the rear window goes down! If you want a truck that will last forever, this is it."
Interior

5.0

Simple, comfortable, ergonomic.
Exterior

5.0

Proportional. Most trucks with four full doors sacrifice a lot of bed length. The double cab first gen Tundra has a 6ft bed and doesn’t look small compared to the cab. Classic Toyota styling.
Performance

5.0

The 2UZFE 4.7l V8 is one of Toyota’s most reliable engines. At the time of writing this, there are two Tundras with this engine that have crossed the 1million mile mark. It’s not a powerhouse, but it’s honest and reliable.
Family

5.0

The double cab model will comfortably seat four people, five if someone doesn’t mind sitting the middle of the back seat. I don’t have kids, but I have two dogs. The rear seats fold up, leaving plenty of room for them to lay down.
Cost

4.0

In the long run, yes. Assuming you keep it for a long time. Long-term reliability is worth more than great mpg in my opinion. At the same time, it’s a truck. I’d you’re looking for a truck, you’re not looking for great mpg.

My new truck new to me but not brand new
"I highly stand behind these first-generation Toyota Tundras my father bought when the first year they came out he's had it for 19 years still owns it he's got almost 300,000 on it and Toes a boat with it and it's never had to do any serious major repairs other than having Toyota replace the frame underneath it which was done for free on a recall because they have rust issues with the frame my only complaint I love the truck mine has some significant surface rust on the frame but I am having it taken to a body shop wire brush for sandblasted and then coated with a rust preventive paint por-15 so that I won't have to worry about the frame being in the shoe with the truck as long as I own it I hope won't have to worry about the frame being in this shoe with the truck as long as I own it I hope but I love the truck Toyota makes the most longest lasting those reliable pickups on the road"

Love this truck!
"We bought this truck because we wanted to buy a travel trailer and start making regular trips. We had to have a tow package installed. The gas mileage is excellent. We have all the power we need and so far the truck has pulled our 19 ft. trailer with ease. I would recommend this truck and model for anyone looking for a mid sized truck."

I purchased it used, through a dealership.
"Since I'm a "Empty Nester" and my significant other has her own vehicle as her principle vehicle, I thought that the Access Cab would be sufficient for her, me and our pet dog. But in the future, I would prefer owning either a Maxi or Crew Cab size interior. There are times when we have one or two individuals going out with us; where we generally use my "better-half's" vehicle. That's because my Access Cab Toyota Tundra does not offer adequate room in the rear seat. Especially leg room! But overall, I really like & enjoy owning my 2006 Toyota Tundra. The only thing with regard to that model year, some of the "features" are antiquated and out of date Plus, it lacks some of todays standard features and optional features that I would like to have. should I decide to replace my Toyota Tundra with another one, I'll most likely want one factory ordered. That way, I'll know not only what would be stand equipment, but what additional options I can possibly add to my vehicle. I've been driving for 50 years. I'm retired and in a few years, my significant other may be retiring as well. So I'm hoping I can purchase a 5th wheel. We can anticipate to "down-size" in property. Then tour all around America and Canada!"
Interior

The two-tone grey & black color scheme.
Exterior

I like the Burgundy Red body color; along with the black bed liner & trim sections. According to the dealership sales associate, the previous owner had a bass boat that he towed with a factory installed towing package. And even though it is only a rear wheel drive, it has a 5.7Ltr./8Cyl. engine. And a 23 gal. capacity gas tank. Originally, my truck had 52,300 mi. at time of purchase, Jan. 1st, 2012. I haven't even gone over 100,000 mi. as of yet! So I get good mileage on my Tundra!
Performance

5.0

Great pick up when the need arises to pass someone, safely. Avwrage gas mileage is about 15+ mpg./City and 19+ mpg./Hwy. And the ride is relatively comfortable for a pick-up truck.
Family

3.0

The rear seat is adequate for our large pet Lab. (He lays on a pet hammock that's attached to the base of four headrests. It keeps him from rolling over onto tge floor.)
Cost

4.0

Oil changes are slightly more than expected because I prefer to use blended oil made for vehicles with more than 85,000 miles on the odometer. (I originally began using a blended oil, once I had gotten 75,000 miles on the odometer.) But original parts, through a Toyota dealership, are a bit expensive! With a few exceptions, I generally prefer to use genuine Toyota parts rather than generic parts.
