YOU OBVIOUSLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. And since you have never owned a truck before, it just confirms it. You cannot trust everything you read on complaint websites. Chevy guys will bash Ford trucks and vise versa. Half of the articles you read are probably written falsely. I recently traded in a 2005 Toyota Tacoma for a 2005 Ford F-150. I had 5 waranty claims and 11 visits to the shop with the Toyota. At 37,000 miles, the air conditioner went out and I was faced with a $2,000 repair. Toyota would not help out at all with this situation. I was averaging 1.5 visits to the shop in between oil changes. That Tacoma was the first Japanese vehicle that I have ever owned, and it will be the last. It was, in fact, the worst vehicle that I have ever owned. I hope Toyota gets the new Tundra right, but I am betting against it. I know that Ford is still making 4-speed transmissions, but they have been making them since the beginning of time and you can bet that they are rock solid. This is Toyota's first shot at making 6-speeds and there is no telling what you might get. Also, the Ford F-150 has been the best selling truck for 30 years running and there's a reason for that. I hope you get what you want, but be careful with new redesigned models.

I work at Tejas Toyota here in Houston, so if anyone needs the hook-up, let me no.
We have plenty of SR5s with "Dubs"!

I read a few posts on this, but will some new people post what their gas mileage is. I have a 2005 double cab (now called a crew) 4x4, with TRD,and i get about 14 mpg. i am interested to know if the 5.7 crew with TRD is actually getting the same. I find it hard to believe, given the additional weight and larger engine.

I am on my 3rd Toyota truck, and I never change before 5K! Unless you live in the desert I doubt you need to do it sooner!

I have a limited 5.7 4x4 D.C. with only 650 miles on it, and it has all been all around town so far,and i average 14.3.I bought my truck 4-weeks ago, and now there are four other 07 tundras on my block.Here in Idaho where i live i have 3-dealers and i was able to get 4,000 of M.S.R.P.. The guy across the street bought a crewmax 4X4 5.7 and pulls a 28ft. Airstream, that weighs 8700 lbs.He loves the way it pulls, and says the 6-speed with tow-haul is a nice feature.One thing i have found, is when i go anywhere, there have been quit a few instances when people give me the 20-questions about the truck. After i try an answer them, i tell them to go and drive all the different brands and then drive the 5.7.....
#1367 of 2007 How to convince my wife

Any thoughts on how to convince my wife I need a new Tundra. I got one 2 years ago, and it is in perfect shape.
I just want the new one, b/c everything about it is badass!
I will probably need new tires in a few months, and I do have small crack in the windshield, other than that I am having trouble coming up with ways to convince her.
