Looking at a 2008 Tundra SR5 122,000 miles, good condition 5.7 4x4 crew cab. What is a fair price in good condition and areas to look out for? Most research I've found says it's a reliable truck.

I have a 2012.. price can be all over due to location and demand. I had 2 to choose from in 100 miles. I paid a little more than I wanted for mine. A 2008 would probably be around 10k. For those early ones water pump, bed rust (under bed),aip failure (can be bypassed), cam tower oil leak. I would check out the tundra forums and research those failures and what to look for. The engine and transmission are pretty solid.

I bet you could save a LOT of money if you were willing to buy a one way airplane ticket to the southeast (OK/TX/LA/MO/etc) and buy one here. These are a dime a dozen here and most of the ones I see come well loaded.

I can't imagine Eastern WA being a good market for buying a used Tundra.

Brighton MI,
I have heard the same thing as well as far as 25% of all trucks in the country are in Texas.

I looked at a 2013 4 door 4x4 5.7 2 days ago for 23k it had lower miles on it also. It was in Pinioning MI.. This dealer sells a TON of used.

good luck.

I prefer the 2006 and earlier models. Better styling and its only slightly bigger than my Tacoma. I think Id look for an old man-owned, low-mileage example of one of those if something happened to my Taco. Gas mileage with the 4.7 would be no worse either.


16 WRX - PPPP

07 Yamaha R1 - Rotella T6 5W-40, Bosch 3300

He pretty much said all the areas to look for. Some of the white Tundras had issues with the paint. Check out the TundraTalk.net and TundraSolutions.com forums.
