Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Driving Experience

COLLEEN S., AK (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"comfortable quite ride. powerful acceleration."

Anonymous, TX (2000 Toyota Tundra)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"As the truck has gotten older, interior noise has increased. Does not have that initial elegant feel because of road noise."

Anonymous, CO (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"Still rides and drives like a new truck"

HYLAN A., TN (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"The backseat doors in the extended cab cannot be opened without opening the front seat doors. Very awkward to load the rear seat in parallel parking lots. Also the cabin design allows easy access by rodents through the ventilation ducting who set nests in the blower and also under the rear seat. Serious location is the air filter compartment for the engine intake. This not a trivial concern for people living in rural areas."

Anonymous, OR (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"Very comfortable seats. Very good ride for a pick-up."

SAMUEL P., AZ (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"Great seats and a quiet ride."

RICHARD P., NM (2000 Toyota Tundra)


Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"all is excellent except non-dealer did a transmission flush and I suspect it caused the transmission to fail 20000 miles later."

JIM A., MO (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"Great truck, very comfortable."

THOMAS W., SC (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"Bought new in late 1999 - truck has 310,000 miles on it, runs perfectly, other than routine maintenance, never had a major malfunction other than parts that can deteriorate with age, (i.e. engine gaskets, O2 sensors, replaced radiator last year). Passenger rear quarter panel over tire well just beginning to show signs of paint bubbling (rust). Incredible mechanical reliability for a 17 year old truck with 310,000 miles."

Anonymous, KY (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"I have a 28 mile dirt road mountainous drive to reach paved roads. The vehicle has held up very well to fairly rough use."

LINDA B., AZ (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"Good relliability"

GARRETT V., IA (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"Relatively low maintenance/repair costs."

TATESHI Y., WA (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"This truck is a beast - steady; reliable; strong; great acceleration; comfortable. it has 210k miles - I maintain it well - may never own another truck. Both front seatbelts will not retract on their own which is a hassle, but not worth the $1000+ dollars it would take to replace them."

Anonymous, MS (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"good solid workhorse.dependable dependable."

ROBERT H., IL (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"Just passed 200,000 miles and the truck continues its strong performance..."

JAMES D., CA (2000 Toyota Tundra)


How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"At first, I thought I would like the way the doors opened: rear-door opens from the middle of cab and must have front door open in order to do that, but now I can't stand it. It makes loading and unloading very difficult, especially in supermarket parking lots, and means I have to do some fancy maneuvering in order to load/unload."

Anonymous, CA (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"cabin lacks trash bag room"

JERRY B., OR (2000 Toyota Tundra)

"my tundra still has original shine,no peeling clearcoat thats so common today on older vehicles and im still impressed by this!the somewhat rounded lines are outdated for a pickup but i still like its appearance."

ALBERT P., FL (2000 Toyota Tundra)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
