Toyota tundra million mile

Toyota traded a new 2016 Tundra for a 2007 Tundra with a million miles on it to take it apart and see how everything fared after a million miles.

Re: Toyota tundra million mile

That's got to be a cool feeling to hit a million miles. I was just shy of a half a million on my 1990 and it was a great feeling. It was nice to see peoples reactions when they found that out too. I didn't get a new truck though.

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

That's so awesome! Well done Toyota. Just goes to show how long things last with just regular maintenance.

Fascinating. I'll be sure to check for the press release from Jeep for a JK.

Re: Toyota tundra million mile

That is a lot of time behind the wheel. Average of 111,000 per year, 304 per day. Crazy!

Re: Toyota tundra million mile

Now let's hope a Toyota MBA doesn't look for ways to cut back on materials as a cost savings measure :-) as they never intended for things to last so long......

Re: Toyota tundra million mile

Interesting, article mentions timing belt replacement, but this Does my vehicle have a timing belt or timing chain? indicates that 2007 Tundras have a chain... probably just a reporting slip up.

As far as a I know, timing chains can still stretch over time. They are just much more durable than timing belts so they have longer life spans.

Good job on the owner for staying consistent on maintenance!
