General Comments:

Before I purchased my Tundra I test drove the Ford F150 and F250 and the Chevy Silverado. Overall, the Tundra outperformed these competitors significantly. The Fords had impressive engines, but rode "rough". The Silverado ride was smoother, but did not have the either the safety features of the Tundra or the capacity to add a plow - - which was an important option to me as I live in Connecticut where it snows quite a bit. The Tundra had it all!

This was my first pick up truck purchase. I am used to driving cars more defined in the luxury class - - such as my Lexus LS 430. The Toyota Tundra rides very comfortably and with excellent pick up like a luxury vehicle. I enjoyed driving the vehicle from the moment I test drove the vehicle.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I continue to be impressed with my 2007 Tundra CrewMax.

It does not rattle and it is as smooth as my wife's Lexus.

The fit and finish are Lexus like, but it is also rugged. The sheet metal seems so much firmer and stronger than the sheet metal did on my Silverado and the doors on the Tundra close like a vault.

The seats are also unbelievably comfortable and I regularly continue to find new things about the truck that impress me.

It has virtually no wind noise and is eerily quiet at 75 mph and it tracks so precisely straight and stops so very straight.

And the 5.7 engine has almost unbelievable acceleration.

At the 1600 mile mark, I have not a single thing written down for the dealer to look at.

Summary:

I want my old F-250 back

Faults:

Engine stalls while at idle.

General Comments:

A nightmare. I can't let my wife drive it for fear of stalling at a red light on a busy highway. The Toyota dealership has tried to repair it 5 times after having it towed in. I have had it for 4 months and it has been in the shop for 29 days total.

The driver's seat is not comfortable after 1 hour of waiting on AAA.

To the commenter: Yeah, on this site we are allowed only to praise japanese cars. As soon as someone has another opinion, there are tonnes of comments killing the one that dares to tell the truth.

My friend, japanese cars are far from being perfect. This site may let you think so, but they are not. To certain people it is very hard to accept this fact. Along with bashing European and American cars as hard as possible, there could be another result to this hatred. People like me will feel more and more disgusted and look no more in here for real, honest information. Carsurvey will became what carreview is nowadays. Something boring, deserted and... full of japanese car dealers/fanatics venom.

General Comments:

I am writing this review just to start up a discussion on the new 2007 Toyota Tundra. I am thinking of buying one so had an extended test ride from the dealership. Here is what I found:

The truck is very quick from stop. Lot of power and you can feel it. It never feels that you are out of the power band. One problem that ford trucks have and which is did not find in the Tundra was the smoothness of power delivery. Power is there whenever you need it, no lag at all. However, I was not very impressed by the six speed transmission. At times, the shifts were pretty harsh particularly from second to third during acceleration. Overall the ride quality was good, but not exceptional. The TRD version had a notably stiffer ride, and I felt a little bouncing at highway speeds. The SR5 seemed smooth and balanced at highway speeds. The cabin is as quiet as it can be. No road (evidently) or wind noise. My F150 has some wind noise at highway speeds otherwise it's reasonably quiet.

Excellent visibility all around. Good quality parts inside. But coming from a 2005 Ford F150 Lariat, I prefer the ford style interior which in-fact is very competitive. I felt that the seats on the Tundra were more supportive than my Ford F150's. I am talking about the cloth seats and not leather. Ford's leather seats are better that Toyota's, however, my current truck has cloth seats. Tundra has a lot of intuitive storage compartments here and there which is really nice. I really liked the compartment where I can store my laptop. The Ford also has storage bin, but I liked the ones in Tundra better

I did not have the opportunity to test the towing capabilities, but am taking the Toyotas word on that. Also, after checking out the acceleration of the truck I don't have doubt about its towing capability. It would tow at least as much as the F150 and that's all I need in towing. One more thing, the brakes were excellent. There was appropriate pedal travel and was braking was linear, much better than my F150. Overall, they added a lot of confidence on the road.

I will update this review as and when I take more test rides or in case I buy it. Everybody is welcome to put in their comments. but please refrain from adding senseless comments and starting a review war. Please add a comment only if you own the truck or have driven it. Unnecessary "Toyota sucks, Ford rules" or vice versa are not appreciated. I am not a dealer nor affiliated to any. I am simply trying to make up my mind on whether to buy this Tundra or not. So if you all can help me out with this, I would really appreciate it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

If I were you I'd hold off on the tundra and keep the F150 for a couple of years, mainly so that they have a chance to work out any problems or glitches that usually occur on a new or redesigned vehicle, than after that give er a shot, these trucks aren't slouches that's for sure.
