2011 Toyota Tundra
The Toyota Tundra is the signature truck that is offered by Toyota. Many people who want a truck, yet want one that is going to offer decent gas mileage and so forth are going to look into owning one of these. The 2011 Tundra is going to deliver the same quality that people have been use to when they drive Toyota. However, most people are a bit hesitant to buy Toyota due to the recall trouble that the brand found themselves in through the past few years. The good news is that the Tundra is still considered one of the best Toyota vehicles to own and the person is getting a Tundra that has went through vigorous inspections by Toyota to ensure that they do not find themselves in the same recall situation as they have in the past. However, with all the success that the Ford F150 has had, many people wonder if the Toyota Tundra can rival what the F150 has to offer, and the answer is somewhat, depending on your views.
The Tundra is able to haul and tow, so it is exceptional when it comes to being a work truck. The problems lie in the fact that it does not have a very big motor and many worry that it could not haul those heavy duty loads like other trucks are able to. However, due to the smaller engine, the truck does get better gas mileage than other types of trucks that are out there. A plus for those that are just wanting a truck to drive, a negative for those that need this for tough outdoors work. However, with that being said, the truck is considered a light duty truck, therefore it can take on some of the work challenges that many people face.
Another feature of the Tundra that is not going over well with people is the fact that the interior looks as though the plastic is something that would appear in a child's toy rather than on an adult's truck. The plastic is very bulky and black, giving off a cheap feel to the interior of the truck. In addition, those that have been able to test drive the Tundra have said that gages and knobs in the truck interior are somewhat cheaply made and do appear this way. So one strike against the Tundra.
Driving wise, the Tundra seemed to do great going from the off roads to the actual roads when it is test driven. The steering seems to be rather loose, thus those that are used to driving a truck with hard suspension are not going to find this to be a problem. Plus, Toyota has fixed a few problems that were noted from generations past of the vehicle, such as the noisy truck bed that seemed to jiggle when going over bumps. They have made this problem pretty much nonexistent with the new 2011 Tundra. Overall, for the money that the person is paying, they could do worse with the purchase of a truck like the Tundra. Good gas mileage and the ability to do some light work is going to fit most people's ideal of what they will need.
