Don't thank ME all at once!!!
I wish I had read the forum on Problems with the Tundra BEFORE I purchased it.
Unfortunately, I am one of the original owners of the Tundra; I own a 2001. Advertised Truck of the Year back then
Just replaced the transmission - $3500.
Never towed; service according to the scheduled maintenance, and Toyota dealer service dept., Toyota Regional Rep., Toyota national, and dealership owner said I was on my own for the cost of repair.
Read the postings about transmissions on Tundras BEFORE you consider a purchase.
I have owned two Toyota trucks: there won't be a third.
Buyer Beware -

I was at our Toyotathon Launch at cowboys stadium today. I was privelaged enough to get a good look at some "secret footage" of the tundra. They went so far as to make sure we didn't even break out our camera phones. It was a 9 minute demonstration of the Trucks ability. Sort of cheese ball infomertial type thing, with Terry Bradshaw. They gave us a ton of specs. One they skipped though was the horse power. The only thing they said was it's industry leading. Truck looks good. It's HUGE, they had Terry Bradshaw, over 6 feet tall, in the front seat. Then they had Karim Abdul Jabar in the back seat!!! Plenty of room I hear. Anyways, first on rolls of the line tomorow. They won't hit the dealership untill end of January. See you there folks!!!

The dealership said they would have the new Tundra by next week?Bullcrap,I work at TMMI and the 07 has not gone into production.We have built some (in fact we built 2 last night),but they are trial vehicles.The public will never have access to them.Want to see something that will make you sick....at work we have a new D-cab that the roof has been cut off of with a sawzall.I haven't heard about the "crew max".At work,they are still refered to as B,C,or D cab.If you have any questions,feel free to ask but I can only tell you so much.I can say this...anyone interested in a "crew max" or D cab,start saving your money boys.It is a big,awesome truck.

DrFill,I'd like to know who your "good authority" is because I work on the engine line at TMMI and I have not been told any numbers.We have asked,and they won't even tell us,and we're the ones building the truck.

#340 of 2007 New Transmission in 07 Tundra?
Nov 17, 2006 (10:07 am)
Does anybody know if they changed the transmission in the 2007 Tundra?
There are problems surfacing in the "original" fleet of Tundras.

The transmissions in the NGT are entirely different than yours since yours is a 4AT and all the new ones are either 5AT or 6AT.
5AT in the 4.0L and 4.7L
6AT in the 5.7L

Hopefully, the changed transmission does not start to fail as the original Tundras have.
The old transmission didn't stand up.
And Toyota did not stand behind the vehicle. When the drivetrain warranty is up (60,000 miles); the customer is on his own. It's an expensive "bet" to make for a vehicle that hypes 100,000 - 200,000 miles.
I have owned two Toyota trucks, and I was considering a new 07 Tundra.
After my recent transmission experience and the response from Toyota's customer service, I won't buy another.

Many current owners over on TS have had different experiences and are waiting impatiently for this NGT. I'm sorry yours had problems.
