Purchased a 2011 tundra 6 months ago, after extensive research and comparison. My brothers drive a dodge, Chevrolet, and Nissan trucks so I had intimate access to the competing trucks. 6 months later they all agree that the tundra is superior in most categories. Power is exceptional with the 5.7 liter, turning radius is surprising, and resell value is undoubtedly better which speaks to the durability of the truck. I am towing a 20 foot boat and it's quite enjoyable how the truck tows, there is literally no difference in performance with the boat in tow - to the point where my wife has asked, "did you forget to pick up the boat?" the only complaint is that there isn't a diesel option.....

I recently purchased a 2011 2wd Tundra Crewmax with the 4.6L engine. I was replacing a 1993 Toyota pickup that I had owned since it was new. I spent several years researching online and talking to every Tundra owner I could and finally decided that the Tundra was the right truck for me. So far I am very happy with my purchase. The truck is very roomy inside, I have two child seats in the back and both my boys are no longer able to kick the back of my seat. I tried putting these seats in the back of my father in-laws four door Tacoma and it was a very tight fit. Power and handling is excellent for my needs. I find the truck reasonably easy to park for being so large and the 4.6L has plenty of power for my light hauling and around town driving. The truck has good fit and finish and I have yet to find any need to return to my dealer. My only complaint thus far is even with remarkably conservative driving, I am averaging 14 mpg, way below the 15/20 on the window sticker. I am hoping that once I have more miles on the truck it will improve slightly. I realize it's not a Prius but other reviews led me to believe I could expect better. The basic sound system meets my needs but if you're an audiophile you may want to upgrade. The interior has a ton of storage and everything is fairly intuitive. If you've had a Toyota before you'll feel right at home in the Tundra.

The vehicle I had been seeking needed to fit a seniors comfort combination for travel and recreation. Several short ways I can best describe this vehicle are: comfortable, powerful, handles like a car but does the work of a truck. Safety is always important both as passengers, drivers and others who surround us everyday. This vehiclel is equiped with a back up screen, great security built in proper air bags, bracking system and turning radias handling. The vehicle came with a great warranty. We were able to ad extended warranty that secures the out of pocket expenses given further financial security of unexpected high cost of repairs. The experience with the dealership was heart warming.

I'm an ourdoor Enthusiast that now has a small family. I went with the Tundra Double cab cause it could fit the car seats. Kids are small so didn't need to get crewmax cab yet. So far I like it. It drives nice has a lot of power (way more than my old f150). I've driven it in snowy/icy roads and it felt very stable even in 2 wheel drive. Seats are not quite as comfortable than my old f150 but could be I'm still getting used to it. We'll see what happens, I went toyota for the reliablility. It will take several years before I have an opinion on that.

A true alternative to the Big 3 trucks.

I bought this truck after being let down time and time again by the Big 3's offerings. My trucks are daily driven with occasional towing/hauling and frequent mild off-roading. I bought a Tundra Rock Warrior (basically a TRD model with an appearance package) and have been thoroughly impressed. The design of the truck shows an attention to detail and thoughtfulness that is much appreciated after dealing with inexplicable and/or cheap, half-baked designs from other manufacturers. The 5.7L i-Force V8 is simply superb with power to spare even under heavy load. I love the styling and like that Toyota hasn't tried to mimic the others and try to make a half-ton pickup resemble a semi. The short hoodline and front wheels being so far forward are a real advantage when maneuvering off-road. The cons: The engine is very thirsty. Under normal driving it's not too bad, but if you're heavy footed (as I was when I first got it) you will be hurting at the gas pump. Also, the interior design is a bit dated. There's a redesign for the 2014, but for a fairly new vehicle it has a late-90's feel to it. But, the fit and finish is typical Toyota: very good. Bottom line: This is a truly capable truck that has more power and performance than any other half-ton model, so when looked at it in that regard it is quite a bargain.

I bought 2011 Tundra in Oct 2011. Have about 7,000 miles on it. Only drive about 700 miles per month -- all short hops, in town. Which is a good thing. The big V-8 gets between 11.5 - 12 mpg in town. Haven't taken it on the road and doubt that I will. Comfortable bucket seats. Have lost hearing in one ear and it is declining in my other ear (helped with hearing aid). Nicest feature (for me) is the Bluetooth connection to my cellphone. I don't use my phone while driving but it's nice to be able to punch a button on the steering wheel, answer a call, and tell them I will call them back when I'm parked. It has a 'winter package' (not sure how it ended up in Texas). Heated mirrors, etc. I like but don't like the rear-view camera. Was backing up the other day, using the camera mostly. I didn't realize the camera doesn't take in a full-view of the rear of the truck. I clipped a light pole with my rear bumper and right rear quarter panel. ALL cars should have side view mirrors with standard wide-range mirrors (like the ones you buy at auto supply -- but better). The center rear-view mirror barely captures the width of the truck bed. Can't use it to determine if anyone is even near the blind spot on each side.
