2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 5.7 V8 from North America
One of the best trucks on the road
Water pump leak at 110000.
Driver's seat stitching worn.
I have the regular cab 6 1/2 ft. box with the 5.7 V8. Not many of this model on the road.
It's a serious performer. Handles well in all weathers. It's a little slick in the rain as the gas pedal is very touchy.
The dealership and Toyota have been top notch. They fixed the water pump free, even though the warranty was expired. There was evidence of weeping coolant, caught at the dealer oil change. There was a recall to have the frame undercoated, completed by the dealer and it looks good. There is also an extended warranty given for the air pump (10 year/240K), although I have never had an issue.
Gas mileage is an average of about 14L/100kms. On par for a full size truck. Runs well on regular 87 octane.
I have put 40K since I purchased it. I've been very happy with my Tundra so far.
The paint quality is poor; shows scratches very easily (red). Probably the most disappointing part of this truck.
This is a great truck; it feels very solid on the road. I highly recommend truck buyers to check it out. Made in Texas, and the fit and finish is excellent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
