    Not an owner, but I'm a technician who works on just about everything.

    I haven't seen any real problems with these trucks. It's a Toyota, which means it's well-built. Enjoy!

    I have an 05 that I've put close to 120k mi on. I've had to replace a window regulator. They're great trucks and I wouldn't worry about the mileage.

    This is good to hear. I was a technician with a Dodge dealer for 3 years and then a couple independent shops for about 3 more years. I have driven Dodge Rams for a long time. I know when I worked at the independent shops we only ever saw Tundras and Tacomas for routine maint. services. My last Ram served me well though. I sold it Friday with 170,XXX miles on it and it was still running good minus the good old crumbling dash board . it was single cab though and I have 2 kids now. I know what you mean about the Hemis! It shocked a lot of customers when it was tune up time and 16 spark plugs were needed!!! LOL

    The Toyota Tundra's are excellent vehicles. They're well made. However the older model Tundra's are not exactly very fuel efficient with the 4.7L V8. You'll average 15city/18highway. If I were you I'd look into a 2nd generation Tundra with the 5.7L V8 and the 6 speed automatic transmission. I own a 2008 Tundra Double Cab 4x4 with the 5.7L V8 6 speed tranny and I'm averaging 17.3mpg city/23.7mpg highway. The 2nd generation Tundras are bigger and roomier than the first generation models, and are built in Texas. The first generation model Tundras were built in Texas also, but were still using more parts from Japan than the new Tundras. Also new for 2010 is a 4.6L V8 which replaces the 4.7L V8. The 4.6L V8 is being used along with the new 6 speed automatic transmission. The new engine is supposed to make more Horsepower and Torque than the 4.7L V8 and is supposed to also be more fuel efficient.
