Toyota has been developed sophisticated transmissions through years and it is critical that you add the exact type of transmission fluid stipulated by your owner's manual typically in the back of the manual in a section titled Fluid Capacities. For me right now, it doesn't make good economical sense to own it. Transmission was a big issue. I have had some problems with the check engine light always coming on. The truck is a truly refined truck that handles and rides much like a car. The interior is nice and sound. With that I could go about 400 miles on a tank.

I started noticing the Tundra and spoke to alot of owners all who have loved them,,its much bigger than I originally wanted but Im glad i didnt get the Dakota and went with this thing. Personally I would prefer more lumbar support Toyotas as a rule have the worst lumbar support. . I have only owned two makes of trucks, but I cannot imagine any truck being more reliable than this single cab, 8-ft long bed,V-6 tundra.
Now with over 93k miles it still runs and feels like it did when new. Styling is often from the eye with the beholder, but I do think its perfectly adequate, there is no layout factor that appears out-of-date even 10 years later on.

Individually I would want significantly more lumbar service Toyotas as the rule hold the worst lumbar help.

Don't waste time calling around to your local bookstores or waiting for a repair manual to arrive by mail.

Bought the Tundra for my husband but he was too slow giving up an old car so I took the pickup. Best purchase I've ever made. It actually goes out on occasion, but always returns.

You really need to own one for many years to truly understand. Dealer says same thing; make sure the gas cap is tight.
