    Hey guys, looking to get a 2nd Gen Tundra. I've found some used 2010 and 2011 models with around 80,000 miles. Anyone have some input on life expectancy of these motors? It will be driven mostly on freeways, currently drive about 25,000 miles a year.

    Thanks

    I've seen some with well over 200K. Used motors are extremely hard to find.

    Welcome, I think you will find the Toyota engine and drivetrain will outlast the rest of the truck in alot of cases as long as you do some preventive maintenance when needed!
