I too had the brake problems from day
one, front and rear. Also had both
exhaust manifold crack. In addition,
over the past year it began blowing O2
sensors on a regular basis. When the
transmission began slipping, I had
enough. The Toyota dealers refuse to
believe that there is something wrong
with these trucks. My last Toyota.
Seeing the Tundra in my rear view
mirror as I left the Nissan Dealership.
Simply fix these trucks. Dealers try to
stall until the warranty expires. Avoid
the 2000 if you are looking for a used
I lived in the mts of Southern
California for four years and my truck
has been with through all the good and
bad times while I have been up there
here. Wether it was hauling furniture
to move, or firewood for the house, or
landscaping products, my tundra was
with me. WHen it came to get the hell
out because of the wildfires, did I
take the company chevy truck? Did I
take the brand new sports car? Or did
I put the dogs in the Tundra and leave
out? I took the Tundra! That says it
I am very disappointed in my 2000
Tundra. I have had brake work every
10,000 miles, $1,000's in other work
and at 60,000 had to pay $1,600 to have
cracked exhaust manifolds replaced.
Both were cracked. Seems clear this is
an engineering, maufacturing or
installation problem. The most they
would offer is to comp the parts, still
cost me $1,000. I sold it and bought a
much better quality truck, a GMC.
Don't waste your money on a Toyota
truck. They can't engineer brakes or
trucks that last. Buy a GMC/Chevy truck.
Toyota should stand behind their
products. They should stand behind
needed major repairs. This lack of
integrity shows the company doesn't
really care about quality. I just
bought a GMC that they stand behind the
engine for 100,000 miles!
