Introduced in 2007, this generation of the Tundra was bulked up to take on Detroit's full-sized workhorses. Growing dramatically in size, but losing much of the refinement of the previous model, the Tundra, once considered the Camry of pickups -- fully-modern and easy to live with -- became one of the least refined and most dated. Shortcomings abound.

"Excellent acceleration with 5.7 L V-8. 381 hp. Fun to drive."

E A., OH (2007 Toyota Tundra)

David N., AL (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Acceleration is touching when starting from a standstill. Handles well"

Anonymous, WA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"My Subaru is better in packed snow then the truck. Acceleration is good for a truck. The 4 wheel drive system is less than optimal!!"

Stephen S., CO (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"It has fantastic power -- too bad it handles like a pickup truck -- no pickup truck handles well"

David S., CA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"With 5.7 liter engine, acceleration is greater than I ever need to use. Handling is excellent. It is very comfortable for long-distance driving."

Anonymous, MD (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"The accelerator tends to stick and surge. Dealers have checked it and claim that it is due to the extra horse power."

"Great for towing my boat. Much better than the Yukon I owned prior."

Randall A., KY (2007 Toyota Tundra)

Herman P., VA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Buttery smooth power delivery, smooth shifting, lots of low end torque."

Craig R., WA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"The 4.7 L V8 is very responsive, with adequate torque in all conditions. The accelerator is not as linear as I'd like, the handling is secure but a bit stiff, but I prefer that when off road."

"It drives well.."

Anonymous, AB (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"It drives well. It is 4 wheel drive and I use it on very rough, steep, muddy or dusty roads . It takes these conditions well."

Paul S., VA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Very good on ice and snow, auto control system has worked beyond expections!"

WILLIAM M., GA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Dead stop slow acceleration is not smooth. Cruse control down shifts on hills is annoying"

DAVID D., FL (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"This vehicle, even with a pop-up camper on the back of it, has a powerful engine that enables quick acceleration and good ability to pass other vehicles, especially on a two-lane highway."

STEVEN S., CO (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Handles great, tows my RV great. Only problem is handling on slick winter roads. It has too much power and is not heavy enough on rear wheels."

RONALD J., ID (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"It easily tows the wifes warm blood horse and/or a load in the bed up hills withouut any strain. Easily accelerates when merging on freeways. Plus it rides more comfortably than most cars."

Anonymous, OR (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"The TRD package was a mistake which makes the ride rough. I wouldn't do that again. It's a popular option that looks good with a label on the side of the truck, but not in practice."

MIKE R., FL (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Overall I am satisfied. However, there was a recall to update the ECU software. After this was complete the truck seems a little more sluggish in it's response."

"Seats and ride are excellent."

Mark W., CT (2007 Toyota Tundra)

Liz-Al C., MN (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"I have a 2007 Tundra that I purchased new in 2007. It has only 5500 miles on it ten years later. This vehicle is smooth powerful and well engineered. My only complaint is that after 4 gas pedals being swapped out because of the pedal sticking recall, the gas pedal has too much spring action which makes it difficult to take off smoothly from a dead stop"

Mark M., NH (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"For ride comfort and visibility, the 07 Tundra with rear window and rear seat reclining make this a dream for long distance travel and for hauling. After 10 years of wear, it still rides like new."

David N., AL (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"It is quiet and extremely powerful"

David S., CA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"of all the pickup trucks that I have owned, this is, by far, the most comfortable with respect to seats, noise, and ride"

Judson L., AL (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"The truck is super comfortable to drive: it handles like a car and is responsive and fun to drive but still can perform very competently as a truck. If it got better mileage (a lot better), I'd never drive anything else!"

Anonymous, WA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"We were surprised how well the truck rides and how quiet. It is almost like a fine car. Handling is fine, too."

Paul S., VA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"The seats ar comfortable enough but the ride one the freeways is not smoothbat all. It is noisy and bounces on all of the expansion joints of the concrete freeway. Asphalt doesn't have expansion joints so the ride is much smoother on these types of roads."

Anonymous, UT (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Do not feel tired after driving long distances. Road noise is average, but could be a bit quieter. Michelin tires have helped."

Anonymous, WA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"the fan that runs the vents for the back seat is very very weak. Always has been. Not sure if that is normal or a defect since vehicle was new. Kids sit in the back seat most of the time so ... well it does not bother me."

Anonymous, CT (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Worst seats as far as comfort of any car I have ever owned. All seats are too hard. Ford seats in King Ranch version are wonderful. Toyota really missed the boat on the 2007 comfort level."

"Automatic traction control system-- excellent on ice & snow."

Anonymous, WA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"The seats are very comfortable, but the ride is very stiff with no load in the 'bed'. If you have about 1500 lbs in the bed the ride is much improved. With that weight in the bed the back of the truck doesn't drop down and the front end raise up. Great 'hauling' truck."

MIKE S., SC (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"I have short legs and have trouble accelerating smoothly from a stop. It feels like the gas pedal is too far away when seat is adjusted to proper distance from brake pedal."

"Most comfortable seats I've sat in from way vehicle, truck or car"

BILL C., NS (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"It is a truck, noisy and too big with the bed too high to be very useful without a ladder. The dashboard indicators are very hard to read, they are recessed so deeply into the dash."

NANCY C., GA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"I have owned several trucks and as far as interior comfort is concerned, this is the best. The only issue I have with it is that the bed rattles at at about 70mph, I hardly notice it anymore, but it used to bother me quite a bit."

"Got the Tundra 2nd hand and it was a terrific deal"

John M., MA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"This truck is very reliable and we have towed a travel trailer 62,000 miles with it without incident. Recently I rebuilt the brakes, not unusual for towing so much. Very powerful, fair ride (good for a pickup). Seats could be better. Very good truck except for pathetic gas mileage. No reason to buy new one because Toyota has done nothing with it for ten years except change sheet metal around a little,"

Richard K., NC (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Had to have transmission rebuilt and don't use this for pulling. I've been told by mechanics this year it happens often. AC has gone out - mechics say it costs more to work on because of placement of motor in this year."

Glen T., LA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"You can't beat this truck for reliability, towing, handling, cab design, and ergonomics in driving. 85,000 miles, much of it either off-road, in 4WD, Lo Range sometimes, towing a 6500 lb travel trailer, etc. and it's never had a mechanical issue. Runs and drives like a new one so much that yesterday my son bought a brand new 2016 Tundra and is equiping it with the same equipment."

DOUGLAS B., WA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"I used the old pricing system you offered when CR was still an honest broker and I got a great deal negotiating on my own."

DAVID H., FL (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"I think Toyota vehicles command a high price for used vehicles because of their reputation for long-term reliability. I was glad to pay a bit more because I expected that, and I have not been disappointed."

"good value"

KAREN S., CA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"We tow a RV and have gone coast to coast with no trouble. We regularly drive in 4wheel drive on the beach and this truck is amazing. We also pull a boat, so you can see we really use this truck and put it through its paces. We also snow ski and drive in snow and ice."

W W., VA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

Anonymous, GA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Overall paid below book price"

KIM R., LA (2007 Toyota Tundra)

"Disappointed in the quality. Radio Volume wide open so I cannot use the radio. 4 wheel system went out but Toyota paid 75% to fix. Bumper chrome is peeling. The ride is very rough. Fuel milage very poor. Love the engine power."
