You are in the Toyota Tundra
What is this discussion about?
Jun 25, 2006 (9:00 pm)
This truck looks great. This is more like it. For years Toyota never even came near a true Fullsize truck. Finally they have proved themselves to me. I can't wait to see this truck next year.I have a 2005 Tacoma and I am looking to trade it in for a fullsize truck and the Tundra is what I want so far. We will see next summer which truck lands on the top of my list.(Maybe 2007 Silverado).

Easy there wild cat! I've owned them all, Ford, Chevy, ect ect... and have visited to many a Ford, Chevy, Nissan, Toyo truck forums on the web to see all have there share of issues... some more than others (hence, the domestic versus Japanese reliability battles)... believe it or not, Your Brand loyalty is showing! I currently own a Toyo Seq. and Dodge mega cab... love em both but for different reasons. Has the Seq been bullet proof? No, it's been back to the shop 2x.. (the dodge, not yet). The Toyo has the infamous rear window motor failure(s). First the dealer says it was a "computer malfunction"...sure I said, see you soon for a new motor, .... 1 week later I'm back at the dealer getting a new motor (oh, by the way, it's a 2005 Seq... so how often does a rear window get rolled down in 1.5 years). Anyhow, does that make the Seq bad? No. But all vehicles, to include toyo have some issues, some more than others. It all depends on what your needs are. Will I buy another Toyo, for reliability, you bet! Did my Ford powerstroke have Freight train power over any powerplant Toyo puts out? You bet! Is the "new" Dodge Ram megcab absolutely huge, with an awesome powerplant in the Hemi, with an all new interior that's plush! you bet! (take a test drive for fun,they've come along way). But if you buy for resale, go Toyo. But if you tow, the Toyo's aren't even in the same yard as the domestics, with a towing capacity at 6,500lbs, that's pretty anemic by today's V-8 standards... Wait, before you think it, yes, If the 2007 Tundra has the numbers I've seen (380hp, 10,000+ towing), it'll give the domestics a run for their money, but don't discount the infamous "first year bugs" on your darling Toyo... Check the numbers, Toyo's recalls and TSB's have gone up exponentionally with their increased sales... just a fact, the more you build, the more potential problems...(ie: Ford/Chevy outsells F-150 to Tundra, say what? 5-7 to 1 or more). so they see more TSB's and recalls. Bottom line, would I buy another Toyo for longevitey, you bet! But nothing, not even the "new Tundra will haul back seat passengers like my megacab. Trust me, I really researched the "new" Tundra hard, while bigger that previous editions, it didn't beat out the megacab in cab space...(and yes, it has sun roof, DVD, ect ect)... Again, it's all in what you need.
#258 of 2007 How did you compare the 07 Tundra
Jul 13, 2006 (9:41 am)
with your Mega Cab? No one has even seen the largest 07 Tundra cab configuration yet.
It is impossible to research it "hard" as you say with so little info available as of yet. ???

True as far as physical inspection... there's still enough info out there online on the 07's to get a pretty good idea as to what the cab interior styling/size will be... (obviously the powertrain numbers are not in stone, but some of the numbers being discussed are pretty impressive). I wouldn't base a decision without first driving one.. Not here to sell someone a Dodge, just suggesting one make his/her decision on what your needs are and go from there... just keep in mind the 1st year bugs... ie: look at the 2000-2003 Honda/Acura transmission issues on th 5 spd.
#260 of 2007 How big do you anticipate
Jul 14, 2006 (6:25 am)
the largest Tundra cab size to be? Just curious if you had sources I had not seen yet.
And, yes, I agree that the first year bugs are sure to infest this truck -- hopefully in only a minor way.

Maybe, maybe not. The '07 Tundra that has been shown so far is the replacement for the extended cab model, not the double cab. That means what we've seen to date is Toyota's answer to the Ram Quad Cab—which means a larger still (Mega Cab size?) crew cab has yet to be shown.

"That means what we've seen to date is Toyota's answer to the Ram Quad Cab—which means a larger still (Mega Cab size?) crew cab has yet to be shown. "......
which won't come out with the initial 07's... some time later in 07 the large cabs will come.... it'll be fun to watch and see

I've seen a few pics on the 07' Tundra and from the front it looks a bit like the dodge ram. If you're considering an 07' Silverado, take a look at a pic on Izoom.com

There are going to be 31 different config of the new tundra, the launch on this new truck is going to bigger then when the introed LEXUS. Stand by you non believers, and your mega cab will need some new ponies to out pull it. So keep your research eng reving. As for bugs, i would not buy a DOG in mean DOUGE in any year.
