    Just got her today. This thing is awsome. My 1999 Ford F-150 has been giving me alot of problems lately so I decided to get a new toyota. This thing has so many standard features that are all additional options on the big three's trucks. I love it. Tomorrow it is getting a toolbox and hitch.

    I Love those New Tundras I test drove and they are better than advertised. Side by side to the 1/2 ton trucks out there the tundra is hands down the best.

    I bought one in Februaury. This truck is great. Don't forget your first oil change is free at the first 2,000 mile mark.

    Nice "looking" truck; however you would have been better off with a new F-150 than the Tundra; Consumer Report failed the Tundra for poor reliability, with so much information on the internet it's hard not to find this. Good luck, but I would take it back if your going to work it daily for years to come.

    Nice, I haven't seen many Red ones around.

    I am towing a 16x7 enclosed trailer with the equipment listed below in it. I am getting between 10.5 to 11.5 mpg towing it around town. Pulls the trailer like it is not even there, truck has so much power it isn't even funny. You will like it. I have about 6000 miles on mine and no problems at all.
