2005 Toyota Tundra SR 5 4.6L V8 from North America
Extremely well thought out vehicle.
A tire on the rear blew. Replaced almost immediately by dealer. Pressure warning system didn't come on until tire let go.
This is THE most comfortable, quiet and most reliable vehicle I've ever owned and I've owned quite a few.
The only negative is the 6.5 ft. bed, (it's a true 4 door truck) it needs to be longer to accommodate building supplies.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My 05 SR5 4X4 Tundra Quad Cab was fine until I finally needed the 4WD this winter. (it has 22,000 KM, 1 year on the road). The front drive shaft separated and spun as I accelerated across and intersection on snow and ice patches. Luckily I was only going about 20 KPH, but it still resulted in a new drive shaft, new O2 sensor (s?) and a new transfer case having to be installed. Time in shop 2+ weeks. Got it back on the road and complained of a vibration/drone at certain speeds (not even in 4WD, the dealer said it was nothing. A week later, when I did need 4WD again it made a heck of a racket engaging. Off to dealer again, they put in new front differential, still made the racket. They put in a 3rd transfer case, now it is fixed? Time will tell. Time in dealer, 2 weeks.
Not sure I am as confident with this truck as I was with my old, Japanese built Previa. I got 600,000 plus Klicks on that before I gave it away! One year of ownership and one month in the shop... this is a statistic that I hope will not get worse!
