#171 of 490 Vibration at Idle Poll
May 30, 2005 (5:20 am)
I am driving 2005 double cab Tundra. There is a continuous humming vibration inside the cab when at idle. It is most noticeable in the steering wheel and the floor when the truck is in gear and even more magnified when the a/c compressor engages. I've had a regional toyota rep check the truck and a report sent into Toyota but nothing will be done until Toyota gets bombarded by complaints.
If you have the same symptoms on your 2005 Tundra, please respond with your experiences. I would like to get an idea of how widespread the dissatisfaction is regarding this problem.
#173 of 490 2005 Tundra - Engine problems
May 31, 2005 (3:43 am)
As I had posted earlier regarding my bent valves on a new truck wih less then 500 miles. Update - I picked up my truck from the dealer after 1.5 weeks. They replaced the valves and a few other caskets, etc. I have to admt that I was treated very well by the dealer, they gave another nice truck to drive etc. Toyota Corp has also extended the warranty on the engine past the standard period. The truck is running just fine, but the final verdict is stiil out till I get some mileage past the "breakin" period. Will keep posting with updates.

Suspension recall :front control arm lower ball joint. NHTSA Recall: 05V225000. Your going to LOVE this one!! Due to manufacturing issues, the surface of the ball joint may be SCRATCHED and they assembled the units which may lead to excessive wear and looseness, resulting in increased steering or ball joint may seperate resulting in loss of steerng control and a crash could occur without warning. OH! WONDERFUL. 7 THOUSAND Vehicles!

Sorry Tundranator, those are the only complaints/comments I have right now. I'll try and drudge up some important problems in the future.

first: when toyota "RECALLS" something, it is NEVER mandated by the goverment, which most "RECALLS" usually are. what toyota really does is a "SERVICE CAMPAIGN". they find out there is a problem and they bring the vehicles in themselves before the goverment requires them to do so. this hardly ever happens, but that's toyota's committment to its customers. it is my understanding (and i may be way wrong here) but toyota has only had a handful of vehicle actually have this problem that they are service campaigning these vehicles for... last report i heard was 6 vehicles actually had this problem.
#177 of 490 2005 FOG LIGHTS
Jun 01, 2005 (1:50 pm)
Just picked up my 05 access 4WD, TRD. I now have about 300 miles on the truck. Everything seems well. This is my 3rd toyota. While reading the manual it said you must take it to the dealer if the fog light burns out for them to replace it. Are they NUTS??? Take the time to go to the dealer to have them pop in a new buld. Is it only me or is somthing wrong here? I have always loved my Toyotas have had very few problems. But the more I read from this board the more worried I get.

Would this have to do with a popping sound in the front end when you cut the wheel sharp one way or another? If not any one else hear this in there truck?
#179 of 490 Tundra making rattling noise with K&N intake
Jun 02, 2005 (9:22 am)
Hello, I just installed a K&N intake kit on my truck. After installing it I drove my truck it sounded great and then after 5-10min driving I started to hear rattling noise when accelerating around 45mph. I took it off put my stock intake and there was no rattling noise . Yet again I installed the K&N and followed the directions carefully and made sure that nothing was lose and still it made that noise. I know that it makes a wooshing sound with K&N but it makes rattling noise when ever in higher RPMS around 45mph. I have called K&N and they said its normal, but how can it be normal when there something rattling loudly only when the engine warms up it does not do it when its cold. Can someone help me I am very frustrated. Thanks

That is normal K&N makes the whistling noise when you are acceleration because it is sucking in so much air.
