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.

Great looks. Powerful. Lots of get up and go on highway. Power will come in handy for towing. More room in rear seats than our Altima. All and all I expect long life and reliability from this Tundra Double Cab. I have owned a Toyota truck since !988. This is only 3rd one !! They run forever..

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.

I love my truck. I check many options before I buy and @ the end I find out that U cant compromise mpg v/s power , yes u can have a v6 -22/25mpg-and half of a torque for a better price, can?t compare a v8, 5.7L -17mpg ( my personal case 19 mpg Hwy ) ? and 381 hp, the torque u can imagine 401 @ 3600 rpm. U can do it all. The model Toyota Tundra 4x4 SR5 2011, give me more mpg @ 70 mph. Driving @ 60 ? 65 mph, I cant really say u r saving some fuel, because the truck is heavy,(and depends the load u have). @ 70 mph, and most part of the time on cruise control will help u to maximize the mpg?s, please don?t be a cheap guy or girl giving a cheap fuel, I go to Chevron all the time and get the Premium gasoline .26 gallons @ $3.85(reg)= $ 100 v/s 4.03(prem)=$104, I tip more going out whit my friends or have a drink less , and get the premium. So far everything looks good, tracking all the recalls from Toyota will help u to understand , how much they are worried for ur safety, and ur happiness will last forever .

I am a certified Toyota fan in addition to being a truck nut. I have owned4 Toyotas in the past, but never a Tundra. The thing that is making me want to trade it in after 5k miles is the rough shifting transmission. It is jerky from first gear through second gear especially when the engine is cold. With this transmission I am sure that others will complain about the jerky starts in the tundra. Dealer said it is fine even though I got into another one on the lot and it shifted fine. Before you get a Tundra, test drive one to make sure it shifts smoothly.
