One thing you hate about your Tundra...

I would like to hear some of the other forum users opinions on how they feel about certain areas of their truck that they might dislike that other users love.

For me, I am very displeased with the DC's baby friendly capabilities. It is absolutely horrible. I knew I should have gone with the crewmax ha ha.

If I wanted a perfect world I would have gone with a mini-van.. Still trying to talk the old lady into letting me get one for her..

The more comfortable of position and not to mention the proper position of the baby seat (rear facing) the more uncomfortable it is for the passenger in the front.. But for me, I don't care how comfortable my passenger is, my sons life is more important to me.

Ride: No problems with it EXCEPT for going over expansion joints on the highways. At speed going over those things I get a kind of sailboat type motion... there is the initial hit, then a WAY overexhagerated up and down motion with the body. Wouldn't call it bed bounce, so much as feeling like I'm on a boat that hits a huge wave and gets tossed in the air. Wife told me once or twice it made her seasick. Changing from the crappy Bridgestone all season tires to Toyo Open Country All Terrains has all but eliminated this. Excess drama over exansion joints and big highway potholes is now minimal and the truck can absorb large road irregularities without bobbing up and down like a canoe riding a tidal wave.

Toyota should find a way to engineer a back seat in the crewmax that folds UP against the rear wall but still slides and reclines. I don't think it's impossible. I just think that making it fold down was the cheapest and easiest solution and they didn't want to invest in doing it the other way until they got a sense that that's what customers really wanted.

I also don't like that some of the interior is smooth painted plastics rather than textured and died. Chips and scratches tend to happen more easily than they did in my Dakota, a truck that had a set of much much worse problems but which had a pretty solid, durable interior that stood up well to 5 years of abuse.

Other than that, this truck is faster than my 04 Dakota Quad Cab in every respect, feels more maneuverable, and has what feels like twice the interior space for only about 5 grand extra. I do not see a whole lot to complain about and pray that the next redesign is a tweak of the same concept with a fresh face rather than a ground-up redesign.

I wished the A/C was stronger and the recirculate mode wouldn't shut off on it's own.

I don't hate my Tundra. I just wished mine was 4WD and had seat coolers.

Only thing I hate about my truck is how weak the A/C is and the sh!tty paintjob... Oh and one more thing, the lack of performance products!!

The Recirc will stay on if you press and hold for three seconds, at least mine does.

Once your kid is big enough to face forward, you won't have those issues. My son is 4, and all is good, especially since I replaced the stock bars with N-fabs so he can step right up on 'em now. As far as the mini van thing goes, the wife has a Sienna that we love. I'm having a hard time coming up with something I hate about my truck...

trust me, pretty much every car out there sucks with those damn rear facing baby seats. We bought a Sienna when the kids starter appearing and havent regretted it one bit. Power sliding doors are a gift from heaven.

My advice, suck it up... The dc is absolutely awesome as soon as the kids are out of the rearward facing seats. The 6.5' bed & smaller doors is the perfect compromise, there is as much room back there as in most cars.

Get your wife in a minivan and you will find yourself loving going places with all the gear that comes with kids.
