School me on Tundras?

I'm actively shopping for a new (to us) truck. Was looking more at F150's but this Tundra has my interest.

Other than high kms and wanker rims, looks ok? But I have no idea what issues I should be looking for, especially on one that's 10 years old.

This is going to become the wife's daily driver.

Worth looking at?

Other than a cosmetic change in 2014 it's pretty much the same truck they sell today. I think those early years had issues with frame rust so you might want to look into that. But yeah, solid engine but pretty basic and not the best on gas when I was looking at them. Ended up getting an F150 myself but I'm not loyal to any brand.

I'd probably look at the last gen Titan in a similar year, they are dependable and you'll probably get a better bang for your buck.

I’m trying to resist the bait but I can’t help it. Why would anybody who isn’t a tradesperson or a farmer choose to drive an older full sized gas hog pick up as their daily driver in a city?

Look good after a lift and tires. Brutal on fuel, but Toyota reliability.

i have tundra, bought it new. never had a problem, super reliable, but a gas guzzler. gas isnt too bad in kamloops though.

edit: also great resale and crewmax is the only way to go


something that happens occasionally is a cam-tower leak. google it for what it is and how to locate it. super easy to find in the wheel well

I saw this one recently, seems like a great deal.

2008 Toyota Tundra Limited 5.7L 4x4 Double Cab 6.5ft box with 3” lift - $19500

I know from experience ecoboost f150 gets better fuel economy though. My fiends tundra gets 18-19 l/100 and I get 16.5L/100 mostly city in mine with levelling kit and 33s. Might even be for sale soon if you're interested...

I'm pushing 200k on my '10 that I bought off hypa.

I'll sacrifice fuel economy for reliability, any day, especially with a truck. Check if the wheel bearings have been done - it can be a $2k+ job. It cost me $600 in parts and a day in my garage to DIY. I also replaced the rear driveshaft U-joints, both in the last 15k. The only other mod is a set of air helper springs, since I tow and haul.

I'd also consider a same gen, GM 2500/6.0. LS based, better fuel economy than the Toy, possibly better bang for the buck.

Not sure if you're being rhetorical, but here's our reasons:

A)The wife's commute is 12km, the majority of it a rural road. She hits all of 4 intersections (two stop signs and two traffic lights) on her route. Fuel economy isn't a huge concern, and can't be a whole lot worse than the Sonoma which she drives now

B)We need a vehicle with a bed to move shit. Between our house and our allotment garden we do a lot of gardening, move tools etc. In April I moved 5 yards of topsoil/compost and 7 yards of mulch. This friday I'm picking up an order of custom milled cedar to build a new fence. The bed might not be in use all the time, but it's invaluably convenient to have available when you need it.

C)A camper or trailer is in the cards for the future.

D)The wife simply likes driving a truck

E)The costs to keep insurance and maintenance on a 4th vehicle that'll be used infrequently doesn't make sense.

Having a detached home i use the "truck" functionality of mine a tonne.

I'd love to not have to drive a gas guzzling truck but like 68, Im always going to the dump, getting materials, dirt etc.

The majority of these things i could not do with even with a bigger SUV etc.

As many have already said. Brutal on fuel but highly reliable.

Family owns one with over 300k on the odo and still going strong with only the factory service schedule. And it has seen all sort of rough terrains imaginable.

Gas mileage is terrible, reliability is awesome. I'll take the good with the bad.
Don't listen to the guy who was talking about Titans either. They're great trucks, if you get a good one. Based on the research that I did before buying either of my Tundras, it's a crapshoot whether or not you're going to get a Titan lemon.

The Tundra doesn't have half the bells and whistles that my buddie's Ram Rebel has, but as he is finding a year into his purchase, that's just more stuff to break. I actually came really close to buying a Raptor instead, but the $108k price tag, and the arrogance from the Ford dealer was enough for me to walk away. In hindsight, the fantasy of driving the Raptor is what sucked me in. The reality is that it also has poor gas mileage, along with a myriad of other issues including bad trannies and melted turbos. Not worth it, imho.

Spoiler!
Damn, that was such a great truck. And one of the few vehicles that I have sold with 100% confidence that it won't let you down. That's why people buy Toyotas. Unlike Ford or Dodge where 100k kms might as well be listed in dog years, Toyotas are just getting warmed up.

Back when yours was bigger than mine.






And a cool Tacoma too, because why not.

If we're talking 4.0 Taco vs. 5.7 Tundra, go for the latter, definitely. The Taco is just as shitty on fuel but smaller, less payload, towing, torque and interior space, and carry a Taco-tax - those things just don't depreciate. Used, the Tundra wins, hands down.

First you're talking about moving to Langley, and now you're looking at buying a truck?!

Are the previous generation Tacoma's better?

My frame of reference is a string of 4.6/5.0 F-150 XLT Supercabs in the family since the mid 2000s

I had a '19 TRD Off-Road 3.5 as a corp rental and wasn't sure I understood it.

Steering was un-necessarily heavy, especially at parking lot.

I didn't think it had the 3.5 until I popped the hood, low end torque is quite poor (possibly due to the atkinson cycle programming?). Really had to give it large throttle inputs to get anywhere quickly even in sport mode.

Electronic brake pedal booster felt weird as well.

Reference was to older gen Tacomas. Heard mixed on the newer ones.

But my knowledge is limited on trucks. Just looking at it now, but that's good to know that the new tacos are dogs.
