I can't speak too much for the double cab Tundra, but I can say that purchasing my 02 Access cab was the best decision I have ever made on a vehicle, and I have had better than 20 vehicles. There are a few people posting problems, but most are copies of others and can be found on every other vehicle listed too. The only problem I ever had with mine was prying my wife and son's hands off the steering wheel long enough to drive it myself. I traded for a Tacoma in August (got a stick so she can't drive it), but I kick myself daily. I love my Tacoma and the true 4 doors, but that Tundra was unbeatable. I didn't go with the 4 door Tundra because the turning radius is greater and I was hoping for better mileage (did gain a minimal amount). If Toyota doesn't ruin the Tundra in the next 3 years, I will once again be a proud Tundra owner. For now I have to settle for the Tacoma and Sequoia (wife is getting hers next week). Don't get me wrong, the Tacoma is second only because the Tundra is untouchable.

After owning two tundras, currently still have a 02 V8 SR5 that pulls my camper around; I can only hope that Toyota will build a better one. T-100 was a TRUCK. My Tundras aren't.
Don't get me wrong. My Tundra is a wonderful tow vehicle, but other than its major recalls, it just cannot take any punishment. I attribute most of it to the independent front suspension. No matter what I do to it, it just shakes. Brakes got overhauled. Fixed the front bearings. Put better tires on it. It still shakes. I only have 2 years left ,to pay on it, and its cheaper to keep it. Its still worth most of what I paid for it. I have only 25K on it. Its sad to say that my 4 cylinder T-100 was much better than my V8 Tundra. Actually, my V6 Tundra was better.
I know that my engine and transmission are bulletproof for the most part, and it has never heated up ever. However, compared to my past Trucks (all Toyotas), it falls way short.
I hope to have a new 3/4 Tundra someday, but please make it a TRUCK.

A couple of days ago, someone broken the driver side quarter window on my Tundra Access SR5. I am wondering anyone here know good web based sellers sell Toyota auto parts.
I appreciate for any input.

Just found it out there no other sellers sell the parts for a brand-new car except the dealer itself.
#1786 of 1986 Cruise Control
Nov 29, 2005 (12:27 pm)
I know this must have been covered before but I just can't seem to find the info I need doing a search. My apolgies if it is a FAQ.
Has anyone installed either an OEM or aftermarket cruise control unit for their Tundra? If so how hard was it to install?, Where did you get it? and how much was it?
Love my new 05 access cab, manual transmission but would really like cruise control for those long highway trips.
If anyone is looking for an end of the year bargain the '05's gets a $3,000 cash back from Toyota. My out the door price was 19,203 with a bed liner, fog lamps and comfort package.

I have an 04 4x4 8cyl and think it's a little anemic when towing. I do like the truck though.
My problem is I can't grease the front u-joint. The joint doesn't open up far enough to put the grease gun on the zerk fitting. Haven't had it to the dealer yet (no time). Only 6K miles on it. After I couldn't grease it, I took it to a local garage, put it on a lift and he couldn't do it either.

Have no idea.
In terms of towing, I usually leave everyone because they can't keep up at least till the sway speed where the fifth wheels pass me. I know its all about power/weight. My camping trailer dry is 4750 and somewhere around 5300 or so wet.
I would really like a 12000 limit for later use for a slightly bigger camper with a slideout.

Anyone out there have any issues engaging their 4WD system under certain circumstances?
#1791 of 1986 Tundra exhuast manifolds
Jan 09, 2006 (11:54 am)
I a have a 2000 tundra 4x4 which i bought new. it has 70,000 miles on it. i took it in to be serviced at about 36,000 miles and they replaced the left exhaust manifold because they said it was warped. Now, at 70,000 miles the right side exhaust manifold is also warped. the dealer said they would fix it for $900. this seems pretty high to replace one manifold. it also seems to me that these are defective and should be recalled. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
