We purchased this treuck @ world toyota in Atlanta GA.. I found it on the interney WAY below MSRP. We bought a 4.6 v8 double cab for the price of a V6.. $23,400.00!! We traded in a 2010 Tundra V6 cause we needed more power which the 4.6 offers.. The truck has been nothing but awesome as usual. I bought the Tundra cause I have two brothers who own 2003 and 2004 Tundra's and NEVER had issues with them..The only thing I wish it had was better MPG.. We get on average 17-18 during week of driveing.but we over look it cause we look it, Great for hauling a camping trailer that weights 5200 lbs. Gas MPG goes to 11 though.. We are planning on keeping this truck for ever.. And the 4.6 V8 does use 2 gallons of Synthetic oil ONLY! so beaware of that.. Luckily Toyota Mall of GA does that oil change for the price of regular oil which I was shocked $60.00! You have to use the synthetic oil but you get 10,000 miles out of it. So if you are looking for a great truck. I recommend the Toyota Tundra HANDS DOWN!! We had a ford before this,and will never go back...

Great Truck!!

Great truck! Double cab has just the right space to throw stuff in. Ride is truck-like but not bad! Haven't had any noticeable problems on highway with an empty bed like expert reviews have stated! MPG sucks but what do you expect! It's a V8 4x4 full size P/U! That's the trade-off! If u want better mpg, get a Prius or Fit!

Love everything about the Tundras. I have owned two myself. The only concerns I have with them is they are not the most economical on fuel (like any other truck), and the interior of the truck is simple and plain. Overall, this truck is a beast.

This is the best truck I have ever owned. Although there are a few things that kinda bug me it's not something that diminishes it's value or appeal. I've got the Crew Max Platinum and it has everything I need in a luxury truck. Powerful engine, awesome interior with very nice features. I tow a 12' dual axle trailer and it honestly doesn't feel like I'm towing anything with it. I had '03 Tundra and I could feel every bump with it. I don't think I'll ever go to a different brand. Toyota has made me a life customer.

Bad Puppy

by from Ithaca, NY on March 29, 2012

So far I like everything about the truck. I will be towing a 27' camper and I will bet it will not be a problem with the 5.7. It is my first Toyota and full size pickup.

Lots of power, especially low end. Free reving engine and doesn't short shift. Some manufacturers set shift points very low in the automatic transmissions in an apparent attempt to improve mileage. Great fit/finish. Tight truck. So far nothing negative to report. Very happy with decision to go with the Toyota. Wish they offered a Diesel.

SUCKS GAS

THIS VEHICLE WILL ONLY GO ABOUT 235 MILES BETWEEN FILL-UPS. MANUAL SAYS IT HAS 26.4 GALLON TANK BUT I DON'T BELIEVE IT. VEHICLE AVERAGES 15.2 MPG AND THIS IS MOSTLY HI WAY MILES BELOW 70 MPH AND 1900 RPMS. I HAVE TO START LOOKING FOR TOWNS WITH GAS EVERY 2-2.5 HOURS. WITH A 26.4 GALLON TANK YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO APPROX. 400 MILES BEFORE EMPTY. NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!!! BIG INCONVENIENCE

Hard to replace my do everything truck

Great styling, PLENTY of interior storage space and cup holders, the CrewMax rear cabin is unchallenged. Love the power rear window combined with a hard tonneau makes it great for hauling large items extending through into the cab. The turning radius is wider and less predictable than my old avalanche, the SR5 Tundra needs auto head lamp on feature like most new vehicles, interior lighting is a bit dim and could certainly use some additional lights, perhaps the weakest link is the fuel enconomy. Do not purchase this vehicle if you dont have a gas card, if u travel 50-100 miles per day, or you expect to use less than a quarter tank of fuel a day. I drive approx 65 highway miles a day and use just under 1/2 a tank of fuel.. Great disappointment in this category for a new 2012 Tundra SR5 Crewmax. Other than the mpg issue the truck looks and rides great!

This is my 3rd Tundra since 2002. Before this I was a committed chevy guy when it came to cars and trucks. With that said I have to say that the Tundra line of trucks have been rock solid dependable and a very comfortable to drive. My current Tundra is a 2012 Rock Warrior Dbl cab with the 5.7. Here are some of my driving observations and impressions. A) The 5.7 is a very strong engine. The acceleration is on par with the 5.7 hemi Ram 1500 I drove while in Alaska last summer. Under normal driving the engine sound is unobtrusive but if you need to get on it this motor definitely lets you know it's a V8. B) The VSC and ATRAC work very well in poor tractions situations such as snow. But with that said I found the VSC a bit too responsive in a situation on the interstate that almost resulted in a tractor trailer rig rear ending me. C) The instrument cluster needs work. The ergonomics were not very well thought out. I find myself having to look around the steering wheel in order to see all the instruments. D) Gas mileage is what I expected but could be better, especially on the interstate. I had no problem getting 20-21 mpg out of the Ram 1500 in Alaska and it has the same displacement motor. The best I have gotten so far with this Tundra was 17.5mpg on a trip from WV to NC and I am not a lead foot by any means. E) Ride comfort is better than what I expected from a truck with a off road tuned suspension, especially on the interstate. It's not quite as smooth as my last Tundra, a TRD 2006 dbl cab, but it does not feel harsh either. F) Interior comfort is better than my last truck. I find the drivers seat much firmer and supportive. Interior noise level is also quite quite with a minimum of wind, engine, and tire noise coming into the cabin E) For a 4WD truck Toyota needs to move the trailer lights hitch receptacle from underneath the bumper to a in-bumper arrangement such as the newer GM and Ram trucks. I ended up tearing the original off while doing some work with the WVDNR in one of their WMA's. It was a easy enough plug-in replacement but at $225.00 this could easily turn into a costly repeat situation for those that regularly use their TRD's in off road situations. Overall I am quite pleased with this vehicle so far. Hopefully this will be just as dependable mechanically as my other Toyota's have been in the past. Best part though is this "foreign" truck is actually more American made than the Big 3.
