To answer your question I spent about 8 months reviewing different full size trucks and at first I fell in love with the Titan. After careful research I came to find out that they had a gamet of problems. I then went to Toyota and test drove the new Tacoma DBL Cab. It has power but I am broad shoulder type of build and I needed more room. I then drove the DBL Cab Tundra. Nice power I-Force V-8, I am also going to have the chip put in to bump up the engine output just a little more. I have been driving it for about 3 months. I love it, talk about balls you put your foot to the gas and this truck moves. Very comfortable, alot of room. Go and test drive it you will see for yourself. Also right now they have a killer leasing program. Just added note, they have it listed for 31,000.00 give or take, actual invoice is around 27,000.00. Good luck...

STOP CRYING, IF YOU DONT KNOW HOW TO DO IT DONT MESS WITH IT, I WORK AT A DEALERSHIP AND I SEE PEOPLE TRY DO THIS STUFF BUT THEY ONLY MAKE IT WORSE. IF YOU WANT IT DONE RIGHT, PAY THE CHEAP $95 TO DO IT.
#423 of 490 Cranks but will not accelerate tundra 03
Apr 15, 2006 (6:59 pm)
I ran my battery down in my tundra and had to jump it off. My friend accidentally had the cables backwards. After we changed them, the truck started fine. Everything works as normal but the engine will not accelerate over 1400 RPMs. What could have happened? A fuse maybe? I have no idea about these new model vehicles. HELP!!
#424 of 490 2003 coolant leak they wont fix
Apr 18, 2006 (4:21 am)
My 03 Tundra v6 has a slow coolant leak from the water pump. A few ounces of coolant will leak out and collect on the bottom of the engine and the wiring loom. The bottle is marked and shows a slow loss. The truck has 24000 miles on it. The dealer says its not leaking, or at least not bad enough for them to replace the waterpump under warranty. They wiped the fluid off, ran the truck and didnt see a leak. Until the waterpump blows completely, they wont fix it for fear that Toyota wont repay them. I am supposed to wait until I am in the middle of nowhere and let this happen? I suppose if I have a bad piston they'll tell me to wait till they all go bad. I referred this to the BBB who has started a letter writing campagin back and forth. Is someone playing a game with me?

The other day my friend and I were going campimng. We took his 2005 Tundra access cab. Now we were only towing a 5000 pound Trailer and the truck just stops. I don't get it is a new truck why did it stall? All I heard was a BANG! Well the tow truck came and took the truck away. The guy in the tow truck said that there may be a defect in the tow package or something. The bed looked as if someone had run there car into it. I for one said that we might have hooked the trailer up wrong so when it stalled it was hit.The truck right now is in the body shop getting the bed repaired. I use to have a Tundra and it never had this problem. What has happened?

how was this ever resolved. i just had this exact thing happen this past week with my 2001 tundra. dealer said it was torgue convertor and that they would also have to replace transmission. the truck ran great until this past week and had no problem after i finally got it started. dealer said it would cost about $2,900 to fix. i just don't trust them....

#429 of 490 clunking at red lights
May 18, 2006 (4:18 am)
problems in my 05 access cab sr5. i have notice that after coming to a stop at a red light there is sometimes a clunk and the truck surges forward just a little. Also, i noticed that while accelerating downhill(and only downhill)from 3rd to 4th gear, instead of shifting around 2200 rpm as usual, it will rev up to about 3200 rpm and hang there for a few seconds and then shift and then shift again to catch up. i have seen about half a dozen posts dating back to 2002 from people who have had the clunking at a red light. if you come across any more info on this please let me know, i'm not real convinced that these are "normal" which is what my dealer's service tech said. it doesnt happen all the time, and when i took my mechanic for a ride it didn't happen. any info on this would be greatly appreciated, as i have 30,000 miles now and would like to figure out this problem before my warranty runs out.
#430 of 490 Things I have learned about my Tundra...
May 19, 2006 (5:04 pm)
1/ if you have a Reese hitch go get the cap and throw it as far away as you can. After 4 years of non use I went to use it and it had rusted so bad inside that the sleeve would not go in. Took me two days of solvents and beating to make it useable. Dealer response was "we see that all the time" duh, a heads up would have been appreciated.
2/ Do not let the dealer talk you into just replacing pads and turning rotors to solve the warping problem. Comes right back, Cha Ching!
