Summary:

Strong truck, other than the point I mentioned

Faults:

Emergency brake is very weak, and two dealers said nothing could be done about it.

General Comments:

I bought this truck primarily to tow my boat. I frequently fish alone and must launch the boat myself. I rely on the emergency brake as well as the park on the transmission. The emergency brake on the Tundra is useless; it may or may not hold on a boat ramp. Two different dealers told me the emergency brake was very small and had to be "mashed to the floor" to get it to hold.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
