    I have a 2002 Toyota Tundra Limited Access Cab two wheel drive V-8. I purchased it new and now have 63,000 trouble free miles. The cab is a little smaller than a Ford or Chevy but it is big enough for my purposes. My next Tundra, possibly a 2007, will be a double cab.


    The 4.7 liter engine is super smooth and it has lots of pulling power. I pull a 3000 pound bass boat and have no difficulty pulling the boat up the ramp.


    Gas mileage is about 14.8 mpg all around and almost 20 on the highway with the cruise control set.


    This is a very high quality smooth and quiet ride. I love the truck.


    If available, you need to consider a power seat for the front passenger side. This was not an option in 2002. The power seat has better lumbar support (adjustable) and it makes long rides more pleasurable.


    Toyota service is wonderful. I went to Toyota after several bad experiences with Ford service.


    IMO, you will not be disappointed.

    I have a 2000 with 104,000 and it still runs great with out any repairs to speak of. I just checked the plugs (original) and they are still in good shape.
    I traded a 2004 Dodge 3500 with the Cummins in and took it in the shorts as far as trade in value, even on another Dodge (good ole Mc Cord Bros).

    The Tundra is quite and powerful,a heck of an investment. I have had trucks from all the the big ones, I will stick with the Toyota in the future.
    Good luck

    Have a 2006 Tundra Limited. Loaded, power everything and I love it. V8 has plenty of power and not bad on gas either. Do get the electric seat for on long trips, sure makes for a nice ride. Toyota service here is outstanding!

    Honda or Toyota? Toyota or Honda?

    I would seriously consider the Honda truck as well.

    I'm currently at the SEMA show and Toyota has the new Tundra on display. The crew cab model is as big as a Ford Super Duty. My favorite truck in the show is the Tundra TRD version standard cab complete with a 500hp supercharged 5.7l V8! Toyota folks say the '07 Tundra will hit the lots about the first of February. I'm a die hard GM fan but I would gladly own this new Tundra. Looks like one hell of a nice truck.

    I drove a new Tundra in 2000. Although I was very impressed, I felt it was more truck than I required. I settled for a 2000 Tacoma with a V6. I further had the TRD supercharger installed. The thing is a beast with a 5sp and about 300hp. It gets 25 mpg on the highway. Totally reliable. If you don't need a full size truck, you may want to consider the Tacoma. Tom S (welderman)

    The Japs need your money, buy the Tundra.

    Honda doesn't make real trucks. They just think they do.

    You may want to check the towing specs on the 07, from what I saw mor towing capacity then any of the other half-tons, and the new available V-8 is gonna have a lot of power.

    I must be the double extra large frame size, because I thought the Tundra was small inside... I haven't looked at them since the 2000 model, though, so maybe things have changed. Other than that, I thought it was a nice truck.

    I wish I had known that the Toyotas were completely maintenance free when I bought my Chevy. I have had to change the oil every 3000 miles, tires at 65,000 miles, and brake pads at 70,000 miles. I wonder why GM can't eliminate all that work like the Japanese manufacturers can. Oh well, live and learn.
