I have an 07 CM Limited 5.7 with over 151k miles on it. Bought it in 07/07. Changed my original brake pads at 130k, plugs at 135k, rear shocks today at 151k. I still get 20mpg.

I have an 07 so I can't speak for any other yrs only what I read on here, but I have 183k n it still feels new. A lot of people including me don't like buying things when they first come out because they could have issues do to redesign, but I went for it n I'm completely happy with it. U can read about more problems on the newer tundras on here, I'm thinking because they have changed a cpl things here n there. It does seem like I got more for the money I spent in 07 than I would now. N if there is things that u like on the newer tundra u can change em out for a few hundred like bdt said. But u r getting a tundra no matter what so be wise with ur choice n when u get it try to stay away from speeding tickets.

ok guys went to the auction yesterday and passed on a 2007 white cm limited with the 5.7 bc of the mileage... it had 112000 on it which is a little more than i was looking for.. it went for 15200 but i know who bought it and i could still get it.. its clean clean only thing that worried me was the mileage.. it checked out on the car fax... should this high of mileage bother me?

That's a lot of miles (about 20k per year maybe), but mickey has 151k miles on his 2007, and there are plenty others out there with higher miles on their 07's

$15k is chump change for what you'd be getting, and that thing is a Crewmax limited with 5.7. Not bad. I'm guessing (and I don't know wtf I'm talking about) that you'd spend $18-23k for that same exact truck, with more reasonable miles, not sure. If you wanna save money, go for it...if you like it, and are ok with taking some risks.

Oh, if you put a lot of miles on the thing, then yeah, I'd spend the extra money on something a little fresher. I only put about 8k miles or so a year on my 07, and it just passed the 44k mark. It can be yours for somewhere in the neighborhood of $28k

Absolutely! Actually, I'm not really selling it, but like everything else, every toy is always for sale, for the right price. . Otherwise, the plan is to drive it til the wheels fall off, and hopefully be able to hand it down to my son in about 10 years, if the wheels haven't fallen off yet.
