Our Expert Review: 2007 Toyota Tundra

Best full size on truck out there

by from Ft Wayne, IN on May 14, 2010

I have a 2007 Tundra that I bought used in August 2008 w/ 12k miles on it. It's a double cab 4.7L V8 4X4 w/ TRD offroad package. Awesome truck. It now has 40k miles on it and the only problem I've had...
I have a 2007 Tundra that I bought used in August 2008 w/ 12k miles on it. It's a double cab 4.7L V8 4X4 w/ TRD offroad package. Awesome truck. It now has 40k miles on it and the only problem I've had was right when I took possession of it, it would kind of creep at low acceleartion level in 4WD. Took it to the dealer, as it was under warranty, and they fixed it...no problems since. PROS: The interior design of this truck changed the whole full size truck game. The huge dials and knobs are heavily constructed, it's ergonomically friendly and the interior is roomy. I'm 6'2" 215lbs and fit comfortably in the front or back. The crew cab is insanely large. I don't have it but test drove it and sat in back. The 4.7L V8 kicks out 280+ HP and is pretty throaty. the 5.7 V8 is like a race car in a truck. OEM tires were solid until 40k miles. Manhandles snow and bad driving conditions. Looks like a gem...get the wide chrome nerf bars. I get so many compliments on this truck. CONS: With off road package, ride is stiff and bouncy, but that's to be expected...shocks are meant to take on rough terrain. The only reason I didn't rank comfort 5 stars was because of this. If you don't get the TRD package, very comfortable truck. the 4.7L is the only reason I didn't go 5 stars on performance. Get the 5.7L if you want a 5 star engine.

Had an 06 Tacoma before this and loved it, but it was a bit too small inside (I'm over 6 feet tall). Went and test drove a pre-owned 2007 Tundra Doublecab with the 5.7L engine...an hour later I was signing the paperwork. Great ride, comfortable seats, very powerful engine. Gets lots of looks, especially from the domestic truck owners who hate it, but still can't ignore it. It can be a pain when driving on the highway because of blind spots, but that's my only complaint. I love the truck. Wouldn't trade it for any other truck on the road.

Never have been a truck guy before I drove the Tundra. To me, it is the best looking (inside and out) truck I have ever seen. It doesn't drive like you would expect a large truck to. Very smooth, very comfortable not to mention the attention this truck gets from everyone. Its unbelievable how many compliments and stares this truck draws. If you are in the market for a truck, and want the best looking truck on the market, you have to take a hard look at the Tundra.

Powerful truck; has some design flaws

by from El Cajon, CA on November 29, 2008

I own a 2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 double-cab, long bed with the 5.7 engine. I have almost 7,000 miles in thirteen months. MPG: 14-15 city; 18-20 highway; 10+ pulling a 4600 pound trailer. My biggest comp...
I own a 2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 double-cab, long bed with the 5.7 engine. I have almost 7,000 miles in thirteen months. MPG: 14-15 city; 18-20 highway; 10+ pulling a 4600 pound trailer. My biggest complaint is that the instrument panel is deeply recessed and dimly lighted so that on very sunny days the instruments are very hard to read. The shiny black plastic around the radio controls shows the dust and needs daily dusting. The bucket seats seem too deep and the high side ridges make them uncomfortable. The driver's head restraint rubbed the back of my neck. Nothing I could do to adjust it solved the problem until...I swapped it with the rear seat head restraint; problem solved. Disappointed and frustrated that there is no key lock on the passenger's front door. Very inconvenient at times. License plate brackets front and back are missing. I had to drop the spare tire to properly bolt on the rear plates. The front plates were equally difficult to attach. There is a bothersome freeway bounce on some cement roadways that was not present on my previous non-Toyota 1/2 ton pickup. The "automatic limited slip differential" is nothing more than computer manipulation of the rear brakes when one wheel begins to slip; sort of a two wheel ABS system. The result is a horrendous, rapid, unpleasant and even alarming shaking of the vehicle. My previous non-Toyota 1/2 ton had a mechanical limited slip differential that worked very smoothly. I understand there is no dipstick for the transmission and the only place to buy the oil filter is from the Toyota dealer. The tailgate is so light it feels flimsy. These are irritating flaws in design. Overall the truck performs admirably with power and control. I bought it for the power and Toyota reliability. Since this was a first year model I did buy the extended warranty adding four more years to the coverage. I particularly like the tow mirror option; the daytime running lights option; surprisingly the sonor option (which I thought at first to be a waste but is very useful with a big vehicle like this longbed); and the slliding rear window. I'm 6'2" and there is plenty of headroom for me. There is a lot to like about this truck. Would I buy it again? After grumbling about the things mentioned above (hopefully they would be fixed by then) I probably would buy it again.

I was completely blown away by this truck. The power is beyond belief. Interior is very roomy with lots of storage compartments. I only have two wheel drive, but it like a beast. I barely notice I'm towing anything. Fuel mileage isa also very good for a truck, but if you're worried about gas prices, I don't know why you'd get a truck to begin with.

Best Truck

by from zanesville Ohio on May 7, 2010

I pull a 30' camper with no problems. Handles great in the city and my MPG pulling my camper I avg. 11 mpg the road. When on the highway empty I get 17-18 mpg at 65- 70 mph. Very hapy with this truck

I love this truck, it looks great and feels great. I don't think I could get anymore items on a truck. I got the TRD dual exhaust, the back up camera, a DVD player, the navigation head unit, leather, and a sunroof. I love the homelink system for programming the garage doors. This truck hauls a 16' trailer and 4 atv's better than my 07 Chevy 2500HD truck. The downside is the gas mileage on this truck. But I bet if I stayed off the gas it would be alot better. This truck is a 4 wheel drive sports car.

I had a 3/4 ton truck before the Tundra and the Tundra does everything the 3/4 ton did but the ride is so much better. It rides like a car not a truck. I've hauled many antique vehicles with it, including a 1941 Ford fire truck, and the vehicle rode great and had the power needed. The only disappointing part of the truck is the size of the gas tank, which is 20 gallons. A larger tank would be nice.

I bought a 2007 Tundra doublecab certified pre-owned. I traded in a 2006 4Runner with the 4.7 V8. This truck rides like a cloud, has plenty of power with the 5.7, tows my boat effortlessly, has plenty of room inside, and is overall a pleasure to drive. Haven't had any problems so far...don't expect any. Its my 4th Toyota in a row. It can be kind of a pain to park since it is a "land yacht", but that's my only gripe. I get stares and compliments all the time. Get one!!!
