Toyota Tundra

Considering trading my 2008 chevy Z71 2wd with 5.3 for a 2010 toyota tundra 2wd with 5.7. Has anyone logged 75 to 100k miles on a tundra yet that can comment on reliability, quality, etc. Ive had only chevy trucks. After four I think its time to switch. Each chevy Ive had began using oil, lost power and MPG near 100k miles despite regular maintenance.

I can't comment on the reliability as I have only had a Toyota for 60k. I can say they are becoming great contenders in both looks and performance to the US trucks. I was born with a bow tie in my hand but I could see myself owning a new Tundra one day.

I bought a used 2008 Sequoia almost 2 years ago and have almost 74k on it. I'm loving it. The only thing I've done to it other than tires is a new set of front brake pads. I change the oil every 5k and the level on the dipstick never seems to move. I would highly recommend it...

My 2007 tundra (first year with the current body style) currently has about 75,000 miles. The only thing I've had to do with it besides new tires is replace a squeaky tensioner pulley.

From what I understand biggest problem is the air induction pumps. I have a 2011 with 6k miles never a problem knock on wood.

55K on mine and no issues whatsoever. I change the oil every 10K w. synthetic; other than that it is just tires and brake pads. They do seem to go through pads/rotors fairly quickly, though as they are heavy vehicles. Oh, and the 5.7l is an awesome motor, but does drink the gas!

Had a 2000 tundra, and got rid of it at 70ish thousand miles. Now I have a 2000 tacoma with 170k on it, and haven't done anything but oil changes, brakes and other basic routine maintenance. My dad had a 2005 Sequioa, and put 60k on it then sold it, and never had an issue. Plus they are made in the USA, which is plus.

I've heard this too, but I believe the AIP issue is now covered for 10 years or 150,000 miles:

My first truck was a Toyota and I ran 260k on it without any major repairs. They are very reliable. However, I also owned a Ford 250 that I ran 230k miles, a Ford 150 that I put 100k and a Chevy S10 with 120k.
Bottom Line: If you take care of it, it will likely last a long long time. Unless of course it is a Land Rover (my current truck).

Could not agree more! Sorry to hear you own a Land Rover, I've heard nothing but bad things about them. Preventative maintenance is key, the owners manual on mine recommends valve adjustments on the tacoma every 30k (I think) and getting those done, and doing the routine maintenance keeps the baby running! I try to buy products that put Americans to work, and knowing Tundras are built in San Antonio is a big plus for me! A tundra will definitely be my next truck!

I sold my first one when I went to college because I didn't want a nice pick up just sitting in a parking lot in front of my dorm depreciating. I've had my tacoma and both have been great! When I finally get my house paid off I'll buy a Tundra! LOVE EM!
