I traded in a 09 tundra last year. It got 15 at best. 11 or so when pulling a trailer. Great truck. Lots of power but horrible gas mileage.Typical contractor - Calling people a liar.
I didn't say the mpg was typical or that 17-18 is what I get now. Just that's what I got on that trip when it was new.
My 08 has had 3 recalls that I know of. None were major.
