Toyota doesn't stand behind their products anymore

I own a 2005 Toyota Tundra and brought it in for a frame inspection in March 2014. They told me everything was fin. The transmission went and I put about $5,000.00 into that. I heard a noise in the front end took it to the mechanic and he tells me the frame is rotted through. Talked to Toyota and they said they wouldn't do anything for me and I was looking to buy a Lexus. Not anymore I'm switching to Acura. I haven't heard that Honda's frames are rotting out. My vin # is 5S481513 in case Toyota would like to know who wrote this

Best Truck Ever!

I bought this truck with 6K mile on it. It now has 265K and is as strong as the day I brought it home. I've owned a lot of vehicles, but this Tundra has been, by far, the most reliable, comfortable and easiest to maintain. Highly recommend this truck, from 2000-2006 range only.

This 2005 Tundra 4x4 Limited Access cab Rocks!

A tight high ride, but the motor purrrrssss! The "Salsa" paint job is sweet! The 05-06' were right before they got too large. Also can tow 7000lbs!

2nd tundra

I bought the 05 because it had all the options I wanted and low mileage. I paid a little more than I had planned. I also own an 01 tundra. The 05 drives more like a car than a truck. Both vehicles are V8/4x4. The newer ones (2nd gen) are too big in my opinion. It's gonna be hard to part w/the 01.

Awesome ride

I just bought this 2005 toyota tundra dbl cab limited SR5. The interior is awesome great leg room front and back. the only thing I've had to do is replace the front hub assemblies and wheel bearings 7.5 hr project. I put new front shock and spring assemblies with a 2.5" lift on the truck to level the truck dramatic ride and handling improvement. This truck has 160000 miles should get well over 300000. Great truck so far

Love my Tundra

Despite the massive rust problem on the frame that I have had to deal with (Toyota screwed me) and related issues, I will drive my 2005 Tundra until the wheels fall off. Mechanical systems are solid as a rock. Has 160,000 miles and has had routine maintenance and the expected maintenance. Love this Truck.

Best car I’ve owned so far

This truck is a beauty, meets all needs. Tow’s very well. Has backup camera for easier backing up. Beautiful interior ( although used ). Great truck overall and never had any issues.

I would buy it again.

I think its a good truck. The bench seat could be a little better, if it was adjustable. The power with the V6 4.0L engine is enough for what I do with my truck.

Reliable, Lasting, Never had an issue

This truck is comfortable to ride in, & driving it is even better. To have found this truck on a tow yard amazes me. I am only selling because I want something a bit smaller. My first truck was a Ford, but I have grown to love Toyota so much that I’m actually buying a Tacoma next. The V8 is fun to drive, & even more so considering this one has an aftermarket Borla exhaust.
