Another Toyota Tundra Crosses Million-Mile Mark, Still Works As A Charm

A white 2007 Toyota Tundra became the world’s second example to pass the magic million-mile mark on its odometer.

The truck in question was even serviced at the same dealership -Greg Leblanc Toyota in Houma, Louisiana, in case you were wondering- with the first one, which was replaced for free by Toyota back in 2016 with a new Tundra.

Contract driver Aaron Morvant averaged a little over 83,300 per year with his Tundra as his job demanded him to cover huge distances, fetching parts for oil refineries, as reported by The Drive.

Morvant’s Tundra looks to be in great condition, considering how many miles it has on the clock; the bodywork has some dents as you would expect, and the bed shows heavy signs of usage but this is to be expected from any workhorse, especially one that carries a lot of very heavy stuff across the country.

The engine is all original, Toyota’s 4.7-liter V8 UZ unit, and the automatic transmission was overhauled a few hundred thousand miles ago. “I took it in to get the transmission rebuilt because it wasn’t shifting right,” Morvant said. “Looking back at it, I probably just needed it flushed.”

Apart from the rebuilt transmission, the world’s second million-mile Toyota Tundra has went through 20 sets of tires, two alternators and one water pump. Everything else was just regular maintenance.

It’s no wonder why Toyota enjoys a strong reputation for sturdy high-mileage cars and why Tundras are loved so much in the pickup truck world.

H/T to Max!

      I agree to a point, however, I think automobiles are not only more reliable today, but much safer. Think about the vehicles in the 60’s, 70’s 80’s and 90’s. Some of those vehicles wouldn’t even fit the bill to be legal to drive nowadays. Yes, some older vehicles (Japanese mainly) were very reliable, but Honda, Toyota and Datsun(Nissan) had their stinkers too that left people stranded or worse.

      I think most vehicles nowadays are truly capable of at least 100k miles without too much up keep. Yes there are the few that go through 3 transmissions before 75k, but on average, I think most automobiles are seeing higher mileage more than anytime before.

      That was a problem on the early 00’s Tacoma, not Tundra. Also, Toyota did right by their customers and offered brand new frames. Something GM wouldn’t do unless Congress forced them to.

        this generation (early phase) Tundra were affected too, but not as worst as pre-00s Tacoma

    It’s only a 12 year old truck. Nothing kills a vehicle like time lack of maintenance and lack of use.
