Poor Exhaust Manifolds
By HQ on
2000 Toyota Tundra SR5 V8 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
This truck is great and will really go through the snow. Fun to drive but a little heavy on the gas. Biggest problem is cracked exhaust manifolds. Took truck to Toyota dealer and they want almost $900 just for the manifolds plus labor and gaskets. In doing some internet research this seems to be a standard problem and Toyota refuses to acknowledge it and take care of the problem. This is the first time I have known Toyota to not cover a defect. Remember they bought back all the Tacomas with bad frames but they refuse to take care of this. I love the truck but I can't say my next truck will be a Toyota.
Really tight and the paint is excellent. Other than normal maintenance it never needs a thing.
Step up to the plate Toyota and take care of your customers who put their faith in you when they bought these tundras. Do the right thing.
