Are Toyota Tundra trucks as bulletproof as everybody thinks? Here is a TFLtruck viewer with a truck review video of his 2004 Tundra crew cab 4×4 with a 4.7-liter V8. The truck has over 245,000 miles on the clock and still does its job. It has the following issues.

As you can tell here, the paint held up relatively well.

  • There are a few rock chips on the front, but most of the truck is still pretty shiny.
  • The rear bumper is very rusty and falling apart in a few places.
  • The leather interior is generally in good shape, but the driver’s seat is torn badly.
  • The truck needed a rack & pinion steering fix/replacement at 211,000 miles.
  • Fuel pump was replaced aroud 222,000 miles.
  • After 231,000 miles, the engine started to “blow” ignition coils every several months.

There are no major issues reported with the engine or the transmission. Joe (the owner) is still very happy with the truck as the repairs, fixes, and timing belt replacement jobs were not more than $1,200 each (approximately).

Check out the video walkaround that Joe submitted to us. What do you think? Is this older Toyota Tundra reliable and durable? Let us know in the comments below.
