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.

What Owners Say

"Very powerful acceleration, handles well considering it is a pickup."

Glenn K., WA (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"The V8 engine has a lot of power and great acceleration, but if your a bit heavy on the right foot you'll pay for it at the pump! The Toyota has one of the best turning ratios of any pick up out there. The 4wd work really good. And in good Toyota form, it's been very reliable, other than tires, I haven't had to replace or fix anything on it. Not counting a couple of recalls from the factory that didn't cost me anything."

"Acceleration is good. Handling is just not as responsive or agile as a sedan, but I don't think any pick-up is."

Hyrum A., NH (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"Exceptional steering and handling. Acceleration is superb"

Anonymous, ME (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"The Tundra was made to haul - we tow over 9,000 pounds and it never quits and with the cruise on, we stay with traffic and not behind the slower trucks. The automatic shift feature is seamless, and we love this truck! Will never sell it, keep it forever and give to our grandchildren when we no longer drive!"

"We use the this vehicle primarily as a people/equipment hauling tool. We have a band and this truck has worked exceptionally well for carrying a full load of band members as well as an enclosed trailer behind. The towing package works great, even with heavier loads, and with our 5x8 band trailer, I almost forget that it's there. The 5.7L engine is more than enough power for every job I've ever used it for. Also, the Crew Cab model is extremely spacious and makes long road trips feel like you..."

Christopher S., NC (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"The acceleration is, at times, sluggish and then it jumps forward when it "catches". It looks like the driver is driving erratically, when in fact, they are not. The turning radius is also cumbersome."

JAMES N., AZ (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"Turns sharp for a full size truck. Plenty of power and not too bad on fuel compared to another truck I had owned."

ROSS D., WA (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"High rear differential ratio provides relatively increased towing capacity at expense of gas mileage but vehicle struggles to handle payload and trailer towing at high end of capacity."

TRUDY B., BC (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"This truck is a great cross-country cruiser. I also pull an rv trailer. I chose this truck over a Tacoma because of the V-8. It really pulls the trailer effortlessly, slowing down only on the steepest, long inclines, like going up into the mountains."

TINK T., CO (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"Love the truck but it is such a big vehicle that I have I am not comfortable driving it every day. We live where we need a 4x4 powerful truck in case of emergency. We enjoy the ride on the road but the mpg is not great but knew that when we purchased it. You can not have this power and 4x4 and great mpg!"

Lavoyd D., OK (2008 Toyota Tundra)

"It is a great truck. Have only had it about 6 months. I wish it had the tow package option; that would have allowed us to pull a larger RV trailer. The outside mirrors block good turning vision. It needs mirrors like the Super Duty Fords (F250, etc). Toyota needs a 3/4 ton truck to keep up with the growing RV industry."
