This version of the Tundra crew-cab was one of CR's top-rated full-sized pickups. Its strong V8, quiet cab and civilized ride mark it among the most well-rounded pickup trucks we've tested. While it doesn't have super heavy-duty towing capabilities, Tundra will pull 6,700 pounds. Unlike full-time four-wheel-drive systems, the Tundra's part-time system can't be used on dry pavement.

CHARLES H., AL (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"This model year compared to later models has an incredibly large turning circle i difficult to maneuver in tight areas."

Anonymous, BC (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"The worst thing about the tundra is the turning radius. Probably one of the worst in my experience as a driver. It ia so bad that pulling into a parking space (non slanted) is a bother sometimes taking a couple attempts at adjustments to get the vehicle straight into the space with equidistant spacing on both sides. The acceleration also seems sluggish for a V-8 and the braking seems spongy. Toyota says everything is fine."

"more than 12 years old with only one repair"

Sandy G., LA (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"The truck was a very good value when we purchased it in 2006. It has has very few mechanical issues and has not been expensive to own. One issue is the paint in the Florida Sun. The paint has faded badly and has required professional painting to prevent rust."

Randy M., FL (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"Extremely good value and extremely reliable. I have 284,500 trouble free miles on this truck and it continues to run and drive very well."

Randall B., GA (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"Very rarely needs anything beyond basic maintenance (oil changes, tire changes, etc). Still runs strong and doesn’t burn oil after 155,000 miles."

"Fair purchase price. Excellent reliability."

"For a pickup truck, unbelievably dependable with very low maintenance costs. We plan to keep it to 200,000 + miles. We love the smaller size of the 2006 model. The new Tundras are too big after 2006. That may erode the value."

Herbert N., MN (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"Low cost of ownership"

Hunter J., VA (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"I have not had to have the truck repaired other than scheduled maintenance since I bought it new. It still looks and drives great after 12 years and nothing has broken or failed."

Anonymous, NV (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"I paid $42,000 for my truck. It was considered top of the line (LTD). Leather upholstery, 6 disc CD, AC, 8 cylinder, pilot seats, sunroof, rear window. It feels like I'm in a luxury car. Drives smoothly with lots of power and seats four-five people very comfortably."

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"The inside appearance was overlooked in favor of an overall dependability of the mechanical side of the car. They could have done a bit more on the inside"

EVELYN N., MD (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"I wish the interior styling of the 2006 could be mixed with the newer, bolder look of the newer exteriors. Also, the stock truck is just too low to the ground."

Anonymous, GA (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"nice looking modern style."

ANTHONY M., AZ (2006 Toyota Tundra)

JEFF H., NE (2006 Toyota Tundra)

"I like the older style of Tundra's better than the new ones."
