#227 of 490 transmission failures
Jul 30, 2005 (3:31 pm)
The transmission on our 2000 Tundra failed at 45,000 miles therefore was replaced under warrantee. Now the replacement transmission is having the same signs and symptoms of impending failure. The dealer and corporate offices of Toyota state that the next replacement will be at my cost.
Could anyone direct me to a source indicating what the transmission failure rates for the Tundra are? Also, can anyone provide any advice to compel Toyota to cover the cost of the next replacement?

Thanks sfh1 for your reply, that makes sense that it would only do it some of the time.

#230 of 490 No Alarm???
Aug 04, 2005 (7:12 pm)
I have a 2005 DC SR5 and it has a keyless remote, but apparently no alarm. I was looking through the owner's manual and saw where the light should blink on the dash to indicate that one is armed. The dealer said it has an ignition kill switch that triggers when the truck is towed or if there is an attempt to start without the key. Dealer also mentioned that it is an 250.00 option. Has anyone heard of this? I figured since it had a remote that it would at least have an alarm that set off the horn and lights. I really don't want to go after market, anyone have any suggestions?

The keyless entry is not an alarm. On the Tundra, the security system is a separate option that is available, not standard equipment. You're dealer is telling you the truth.

Thanks Ken, I appreciate you confirming that for me. I never thought to ask because the remote has a panic button, so I assumed there was an alarm as well. Now I will know better next time. I love this truck though! I am very pleased with my purchase and the deal I got. I am thinking of adding running boards and that aforementioned alarm. Any idea on what I can expect from a dealer for the running boards? Is there a way to add a compass and outside temp gauge in the overhead console?

I would guess that the O/S temp guage and compas in the overhead console may be cost prohibitive, but you may be able to get the auto-dimming mirror with those installed less expensively. I would check the price for both running boards and tube steps. The tube steps don't protect as well, but if you live in a snowy climate, they don't accumulate snow like the boards do. I'm sure you're going to love your new D/C. My wife has loved hers since I got hers about 4mos ago.

I agree with westtx to check running boards and tube steps. Also check for aftermarket parts, and you may get the best of both worlds. I love my D/C as well, but I think the running boards could be a little better. I'm concerned about how much snow they'll pick up in the winter. I have this nice tall truck that's going to get a snowdrift right outside the door!
Let us know what you get!

It sounds like a vaccum leak...
Make sure that the lid to the air filter is closed tightly, and that the none of the vaccum hoses came of or became loose. Sometimes if not careful the main (the bigest one) vaccum hose that carries the air from the air filter to the engine slips off on one side causing your can not to get much air intake.
PS: I assumed you have a drop-in K&N not the cone type filter
