Headlight burnt out and one small rattle that was corrected under warranty. Other than that, nothing.
I drive for a living. About 75% of the time I'm hauling a 6900 pound construction trailer with me. My last truck was a 2003 Silverado that I put nearly 450,000 km on, but it took three transmissions to get there so I thought I'd try something different.
This Tundra has been fantastic so far. I admit that I am hard on vehicles (frequent heavy towing and lots of dirty, rough construction sites) but I need them to be capable of what I can dish out - my living depends on it. I bought the Tundra in January of 2008 and I've put nearly 180,000 km on it so far. I did the brakes (front only) for the first time at 130,000 km and have changed the tires around the same time. Just regular maintenance other than that. I think that's great considering the towing I do.
Mileage is about 16.5 L/100km when towing and about 14 L/100km when not - about on par what I got with my Silverado but the Tundra has way more power and and tows with a lot more confidence.
It's extremely comfortable on long trips (10 hours +) and the Navigation on my Limited is cool.
I would say that the radio is a bit of a reach (thank God mine has steering wheel controls - I don't think base models do) and they could improve the "warmth" of the interior - it's a little bland.
I recommend this vehicle to everyone I talk to. My friends all drive trucks and were a bit surprised that I bought a Toyota. They are equally impressed as I am at the durability and two have since also traded up to Tundras.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
