Should I Buy the 2021 Toyota Tundra?

This generation of the Tundra has been around since 2007 and is due for a complete redesign, but the truck still offers a lot of passenger space in CrewMax form. Still, if you’re shopping for a full-size truck, it’s worth taking the time to check out the Tundra’s newer competitors before making a decision.

Tunda, best for good reason.

My 2021 Tundra is a great truck. I bought a limited. White with black trim. I thought it would be a nice non-descript truck. Well, it also came with duel tuned exhaust. It turns heads. 20" wheels and a black bed cover add to the style. And the black leather seats are tough enough for my dog's nails. My wife has a 2017. We have only changed lights and all the normal maintenance.

2021 Tundra 1794 Edition

Love my 1794, it’s got more bells and whistles than any truck I’ve ever owned. The 5.7L is a beast and will tow practically anything. The fuel efficiency is not great but xxxx it’s a truck made to work, and being the 1794 edition (Top Dog) in Tundras lineup, I can look good doing doing so. If I wanted a truck for fuel economy I would have bought a four cylinder.

11K and Three Leaks

I have a 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD and have put 11K miles on the vehicle. So far I've had a Rear Main seal oil leak. Front Timing plate cover leak and now a water pump leak. As for the Rear Main seal, it looks like it's a systemic problem. My buddy who works for a transmission shop has seen several rear main seal leaks on 2021 tundras. I would not recommend buying this vehicle.
