Toyota Tundra, Truck
#1975 of 1986 So you really want to buy a tundra?
May 26, 2010 (9:19 am)
I have been the proud owner of 4 Toyotas prior to purchasing my 2007 Tundra Crew Max in August of 2007. This is my last Toyota. Quality is just not there anymore, nor are there any honest dealers to repair them. Here is my list of issues.
--truck runs like crap after recall to adjust computer . Dealer says "Normal"
--Gutless towing my 2700 pound Tent Trailer. Advertised to tow 10,000 with ease (my Tacoma does a better job)
--Poor paint quality. Paint comes off truck with every little bump. Nothing you can rub out or touch up. Repaint the truck or live with the white undercoating showing through
--Radio volume does not work and stations drift off of where set
--Dash vents will not stay in adjusted position, you have a choice of full up or full down. Dealer reluctant to fix due to need to pull the dash. Says Dash will start to rattle when they fix it. Dash already rattles. So Add;
--Excessive dash rattle
--Loud engine noise similar to valve tapping. Dealer Says "normal" even though I have never heard it before, sounds like a diesel from inside the cab
--Tranny shifts hard when cold, You guessed it, the dealer says "normal" Did not happen in the first year of driving the truck
One more thing I should mention, the truck has a whopping 17,000 miles on it. Oh joy, I wonder hat happens when I reach 20,000.
#1976 of 1986 My Tundra 2008 Model Sr5 double cab 4 wd

I have owned my Tundra for a year and a half and this is my review. I do use mine mostly for towing i have a travel trailer 8000 lbs. I had a Dodge Hemi before and there is no comparision on the towing. The power of the Tundra is made for towing and i felt the Dodge power was not it makes its power on the mid to top where the Tundra is much lower in the range. I can tell the build of the Tundra is much better and sure it could have more options inside the cabin. So far no issue and enjoying it!!!
#1977 of 1986 Life with my 07 SR5 double cab 5.7
Oct 05, 2011 (11:25 am)
I purchased this truck July of 07. I use it for light duty taking repair materials to properties owned and family use. It has only 20k miles because we have 2 other vehicles. Early on, about 5K mi. the torque converter was replaced due to the speed strip effect. For some unknown reason the front bumper rusted through on the bottom. The rear bumper does not have this problem. I live in Florida but that is not the reason for this rust through. Other than these anomalys, there have been no problems. Gas consumption is 19 to 20 mpg hwy 70 mph and 17 to 18 mpg around our county. It drops off with stops but has never gone below 15 mpg. Even though it is much heavier and more powerful than my standard cab 04 Dodge hemi it gives better mpg. I believe this is the most useful vehicle ever owned by me and I am 74 yrs old this Month.
#1978 of 1986 Radio Volume problem
Nov 04, 2011 (9:11 am)
Is there anyone out there having a problem with their radio volume?
I have a 2007 Tundra double cab eight foot bed. When I get into the truck, it is a gamble if the volume knob will work. I emailed Toyota to see if there was a recall on this problem.
I have a friend who also owns a 2007 Tundra. He had to take his in for the same reason, radio volume problems. He put high mileage on his quickly. So it was with the 3 year / 36000 warranty. I purchased mine March 2008 and I only have 25,000 miles on it. Please pass this on if you have friends with a Tundra. I will place this on Facebook.

I just purchased a 2007 Tundra 5.7 with 33k miles on it a couple months ago. I love the truck (even though the saddle leather is very delicate), but what's up with the tranny? Are they all this wonkey or is it just me??

No problems yet with the tranny. Lots of giddy up and go.
#1981 of 1986 Intermittent radio on 07 SR-5 5.7
Nov 18, 2011 (12:06 pm)
My radio was changed out for intermittent sound when my Tundra was about 1 yr old. The radio they replaced the origonal with occasionally does the same thing. Consumer Reports shows the radio in the 07 reliability as much worse than average so I just live with it since it is out of warranty. Also I have complained since day one about the dim dash lights in bright sun. Except for the LED dash lights, which I do not have, all others the service Mgr checked are the same and there is no fix for this problem. Since I live in Florida this is a problem. The LED dash lights that come in the top of the line Tundra are plenty bright but they can not be changed out in my SR-5.
