After about 6000 miles the truck started shaking when I stopped. I took it back to the dealer who did a complete brakes job. It drove great for about another 8000 miles then started shaking again. In total, I have had 3 new rotors, 2 new drums, 2 new front calipers, including the last time when they installed the updated brakes, just before the warranty ran out. now it still shakes when I stop. The dealer tells me there is nothing htey can do, since it has all the latest updates for the brakes. Also, the exhaust manifold leaked, and the check engine light has been on 4 seperate time for various emission problems that have totaled over $900.

Brakes, Brakes Brakes. If you buy the truck, expect to have the brakes done every 5000 miles or endure the shaking each time you stop.
This truck has been a disappointment.
Toyota quality is all but absent.
Granted it is the first model year,
but it has far too many shortcomings.
Overall quality is poor. The interior
has squeaked and rattled since it was
new. The suspension squeaks, chirps,
and rattles. Teeth break off the
spider gears in the rear end. Axle
seals blow for no apparent reason. The
transmission shifts hard into 3rd
gear. Fuel milage and crusing range is
unimpressive, After 4 years, toyota
has still not solved the
brake problem. The 4wd system is
failure-prone. I cannot recommend this
box frame instead of c-channel, better
quality hardware, better tires, larger
engine, better MPG, better brakes,
rear disc brakes, better battery,
better quality interior, real 3/4 and
1 ton versions.
