Not in the truck segment they don't. Toyota has been trying to enter this segment for years now and have not succeeded with much market share yet. I don't see that changing anytine soon. And when Ford releases the new 2009 F150, their sales will skyrocket once again and it'll be a 2-horse race between them and the GMT900's. The Tundra will be laps behind, as usual.

Good news or bad news, this truck is hot on the market, otherwise... no one would bother talking about it. This should help continue increase the sales.

Lot's of "Hopefulls" around here. Toyo must be laughing their collective arses off at the reactions of those tried-and-true domestic buyers. Now that the Tundra has made significant inroads (On target to sell the projected 200k earlier than expected) compared to the outgoing one has really brought out the insecuruties of the owners. This much backhanded, armchair criticism is a compliment if anything, cause it shows that the Tundra is "serious comptition" and those other guys have taken notice. It is, of course the last stronghold the domestic manufacturers have to defend in the market.
Think of it this way, if the Tundra really was a "Flop" as some of the 14yo's on this forum claim it to be, why waste the time littering the Tundra forums with trash talking and needless anti-Toyota babbling? Why not let the market speak the truth. Sure, in this case the market IS showing favorable results towards the Tundra, but does anybody REALLY believe that a few negative posts on an internet forum will change things? lol.
Hey, my buddy is a service manager for a GM dealer in NH. Got stuck with not 1, but 2 GMC Sierra's that turned out to be trash. Problems got so bad that he strayed to the "Dark side" and bought a Tundra. Really, if your own employees don't stand by your product (GM) then what does that say?
Like it or not, the Tundra is a success. No amount of internet bullying is going to change that.

Why does it hurt there in lala-land?
The all-new Tundra
full-size pickup reported all-time best-ever sales of 17,727, an increase
of 113.8 percent over the year-ago month.
Again, dream on.

Here's the deal. Toyota has been quite vocal about selling 200k units this MY. They will in fact do that, maybe even plus a few for bragging rights, by putting as much cash on the hood as it takes. They are already doing it.
I pity the poor early buyers that are finding out that they paid too much for their beloved Toyota. Not a good way to treat your customers.

Peoople aren't paying THAT much different now than when the truck appeared. Plus, dealers are always grasping for those extra $$$'s when a new product comes out, whether it be a Tundra or a Camry. If buyers are willing to pay for it because they want to be the first on the block to have one, then they will.
Try shopping for a Z06, dealers are gouging as much as 10 grand more on those. Yet, there are not similar criticisms.
They'll get that back when they go to trade it.

I'll bet that the people that have got nothing else to do than bash Tundras, probably never drove the 07.I drove all of the major brands, and Tundra was my pick. I narrowed it down to the G.M.C 6-ltr SLT and Tundra limited d.c. and the Toyota won.i'm as an "AMEICAN" as anybody, an probably more than most, but but if i'm going to spend my money, i'll buy what i want.You know if there really is a cam problem, it may not be a bad deal for Tundra owners. Just think i might get a new motor at 59,999 miles. I trade after 4-5 years anyway. Just something to think about!!

It is always the vehicle maker's fault in the public view. Behind the scenes it's always the supplier's fault. Always.
Until additional information is known ( Yes, it is a very small percentage so far but it will likely get bigger. ) neither you nor anyone else knows what the extent of the problem is. I know that you'd hope it's in all 30,000 engines and since hope springs eternal just keep the faith. Your fondest wishes might come true.
