I have 2003 Tundra limited with 262700 0n it working great. Still original muffler.i'm at 80K, there's a guy on the site somewhere (look for the "high mileage tundras" thread, youll have to search for it) who put over 100K on a new tundra in under a year (he's a courier i think), and toyota engines regularly go beyond 200K (the dealer here in dayton has an old 22r with a big sticker bragging about being over 450K and still going strong)...just make sure you do the maintenance, like changing the oil/air/fuel filters, fluids, and small mechanical items like plugs and valves on schedule, and eventually other stuff like pumps and whatnot. there are a lot of guys on the board who are auto mechanics or old hands at doing thier own maintenance, theyre a great help for advice on how to manage some of this stuff.
lotta really helpful stuff in the old postings here on engine & drivetrain, and how-to.s in the garage section.
Hey flightline, I don't know where you are but that seems crazy high for that truck. Around here (Vermont) that truck would have at least a little rust and would probably go for less than half of the number you mentioned.I'm wondering if I should buy a one owner 2004 Toyota Tundra 2WD Double Cab V8 SR5 (Natl) with 375000 miles on it. It has good regular service records and they are asking $5500 for it. Any advice or opinions would be apperciated.
My 2002 has 215k uses no oil same compression as new. Change oil on time, regularly service and synthetic oil. Only proble replace transmission at 100k Some help from dealer.Curious how many miles people are getting out of these I-force V8's (4.7). This is my third brand new Toyota, but first V8.
They build an excellent V6 and 4 banger, but I'm a bit uncertain about the longevity on the V8...
(Trying to feel more secure about 28.5K investment)
What is the most miles you know on a V8 Toy??
