When I changed my flat on my 2006 tundra, since the spare was still flat, the sensor still lit up. The light did go off when the dealer pump up the flat spare.
Don't know what had happen since then, but it's flashing right now, I've been driving with the "flasher" for 40K miles now. costco tire checked and the sensor does broadcast, you are right about 120$ per sensor.

Wow! Reading the posts and discovering all these problems makes me feel very lucky. I purchased my 4.7 SR5 Tundra in 2007 and so far every mile I drove was as pleasurable as the first one. Never had a single problem nor a disappointment. Due to the cost of gas I was contemplating the purchase of a high gas mileage car and drove the new high tech Ford Focus, Elantra, Civic and Forte. Needless to say my Tundra is in a league by itself and getting only 19 MPG is a small price to pay.

Has anyone had a problem with the hubcaps on Tundra alloy wheels disintigrating? My 2007 Tundra lost two hubcaps from the rear wheels. The cap came off leaving the ring and 5 tabs. When I removed the remaining caps by hand, without using any tools to pry them off, I found that both remaining caps also had broken tabs. When I took them to the dealership, they wanted to charge me $75 each for replacement caps. They said there was no recall for the caps.
#2006 of 2007 RUN SLUGGISH

I have a 2008 Tundra, regular cab with more than 100,000 miles on it. I used it to travel long distance miles since I work in Telecommunication. I change the oil every 5,000 or less, used the synthetic oil. In short, I keep it in good condition...I thought.
However, for some reason, it runs sluggish and I was told by the mechanic that I need the fuel filter change. But when I talked to a Toyota mechanic, he told me that I have to change the whole system; fuel pump since it came with it. And on top of that it would cost me $1000.00.
Can someone give me an advise, I am confused since other mechanics don't charge me that much in their bid.
#2007 of 2007 another toyota problem

Toyota is not telling anyone of this problem so I will. Vehicles with flex fuel have a problem with starting. The ignition turns over but it will not fire. Eventually after several attempts it may start however from that point on the vehicle will run rough as if the choke is on. It will definitely run more rich until it is fixed.it will need to go in for service every time you get 7-8 fillups.Toyota indicates all you have to do is move to a warmer climate where it's over 50 degrees, don't drive less than 5 minutes. Never run less than 1 quarter of a tank of fuel.they also said that I can bring it back for service anytime it does this. It happens to me about every 2 weeks. I drive almost 50,000 miles per year and it doesn't take long to fill up 7 times.Toyota will not let you out of your lease and will not offer a new vehicle so itthe only solution that I could see is go to the lemon law and get an attorney.Toyota has to pay attorneys fees under the lemon laws. personally, I feel what they are doing is fraud. They know there's a problem they do not have a fix they continue to sell these vehicles and do not let you out of your lease or replace the vehicle.
I am a repeat customer of Toyota many times but that doesn't seem to make any difference. Beware of Toyota's problems they do not provide any quick solution.I bought a new vehicle thinking I would be able to depend on it. I don't have time to drive to their service garage every 2 weeks. They have had my truck for 2 weeks this time this is the third time in.
good luck to anyone with this problem.
