The 2007 Toyota Camry is the 2007 Motor Trend car of the year. I would be blown away if the Tundra wins 2007 Motor Trend Truck of the year. Is it possible for the same automaker to get two awards for 2 different products??? We'll see in December who wins motor trends truck of the year award.
2007 Truck of the year- ?????????????
2006 Truck of the year- Honda Ridgeline
2005 Truck of the year- Toyota Tacoma
2004 Truck of the year- Ford F-150
2003 Truck of the year- Dodge Ram (heavy duty)
2002 Truck of the year- Chevy Avalanche
2001 Truck of the year- Chevy Silverado (heavy duty)
2000 Truck of the year- Toyota Tundra
1999 Truck of the year- Chevy Silverado

This what I think about the first generation of the Tundra.
It was a great truck. I use to own a 2001 Toyota Tundra extended cab w/ the 4.7 L and the TRD off road package. It was one my best trucks I've ever owned. Even though it smaller than the domestics it was a great truck. I sold it in '05 for a Tacoma which I sold for a Ram 1500. Sold the Tundra for $15,000. It had aprox. 80,000 miles.
Hopefully the second generation will be better. I will probabally trade my Ram for the new Tundra's sometime next year, maybe a 2008 model. I want to test drive both the Double Cab and Crew Max.

2006 TOTY Honda Ridgeline
I'd be surprised if the new Tundra is even qualified this year since the first one will only be delivered in Feb 2008. I'm not certain what MT's rules are on this matter.

This is the first time I looked at this forum, as I am getting ready to replace a personal vehicle (Leased '05 F-150 with 30K miles) with a '07 Tundra. The only reason I got the F-150 was for the towing capacity. I'll be glad to replace it with another Tundra, as the F-150 has some issues. But I don't consider all Ford's products a lemon because of it. I am sorry to hear you are so sour on the Tundra. Your experience is very unusual, and unfortunate. To assume Tundra's are not dependable based on your experience is understandable....but wrong. Once a vehicle's warranty is up, you are on your own. Unfortunate, but a fact. These are great trucks and the '07 will be a great product as well.
I have purchased 3 Tundra's, a 2000 4X4, 2001 2WD, and a 2002 4X4, and have many more miles on them than that which your tranny failed at. All without a single issue. Very dependable trucks. Also, I have purchased 7 Camrys, 2 Tacomas, a T100 and 2 Avalons and they have been the best vehicles we have ever purchased. We have Camrys in our fleet with well over 300K miles, and believe it or not...never a engine or tranny problem. Bullet proof.
A failure can happen with any vehicle, so I wish you the best in future purchases.
Now, my disclaimer: I own a company that is a major supplier to Toyota, so I am a little biased. But I am with engineers and personel at most of thier production facilities in the U.S. alot, and they are an amazing company with production abilities and quality second to none, and it shows in the products produced by Toyota.
