This is my sixth new Toyota, previously 2 - 4Runners, 2 - Camrys, 1 - Tercel. I can't believe how the quality has deteriorated. I still have engine rattling on my 2009 Tundra with the 5.7, sounds like a diesel when cold. Pulled my boat this last week, and rattle was quite noticeable when a load was applied. I tried numerous times to get the dealership to address, and even requested ... Read More
I purchased a 2009 Tundra with 5.7L, and have had it back to the dealer three times regarding engine knocking. They say it is normal. Having built engines, I disagree, and think there is a serious problem here, which they are not acknowledging. I am about to invoke the "Lemon Law" if they don't step up and take care of this. I also have been experiencing transmission slip, especially after a ... Read More
Vehicles in recall include: 2009-10 RAV4 2009-10 Corolla 2009-10 Matrix 2005-10 Avalon certain 2007-10 Camrys 2010 Highlander 2007-10 Tundra 2008-10 Sequoia I have a 2010 Highlander and I have not been notified about any recalls. Maybe because it was Made in Japan. I called Toyota and gave them the VIN just to be certain. Anyway, how about cleaning up the list? Accuracy is important. John
Toyota just announced today they will recall ALL Tundras 2000-2003 for rust problem. This is expansion of the limited Nov, 2009 recall. Still have not found on Toyota USA Newsroom as yet. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35787181/ns/business-autos/
Wild, Out Of Control Toyotas? Baloney. Posted Today 11:56 AM by Arthur St. Antoine I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer. This whole Toyota-recalls hoo-ha has morphed into nothing but yet another “crisis” that a ravenous media and 21st Century Americans -- a people who live better and more safely than any humans in history -- have transformed into their panic du jour. This morning I watched a video ... Read More
Toyota takes the Grand Prize in Recall; more last year than any other automaker; guess that is what they mean by Toyota Quality. Do you have a link or source for this? Toyota led all automakers with most recalled vehicles in 2009 And something tells me they will take the title again for 2010 and the way they are going, may take the Grand Price for the Largest Automaker Recall EVER...stay ...

By Emily Fredrix And Erin Mcclam, The Associated Press ADVERTISEMENT Toyota executives have been virtually silent amid a recall of millions of their cars because gas pedals can become dangerously stuck. For their customers, oh, what a feeling - fear, frustration, confusion and anger. Since Tuesday, when the Japanese automaker said it would stop making and selling some of its top-selling models, the company has had few answers for dealers and ... Read More
Up to you to decide, but this pretty much sums it all up...not much more to say: It appears that Toyota has denied its sudden acceleration problem for more than 5 years. Toyota's recall for floor mat problems is not the end of the story and the company needs to do more to protect its customers and the motoring public. In March 2004, the Center For Auto Safety reported about sudden ... Read More

No! I traded the truck for a 2009 Toyota 4 Runner and I am very happy with it! Also, my truck did not have a "DASH RATTLE" as you say yours has. It was something in the engine on mine. Well, I am done with that problem! I recommend anyone buying a new Tundra to get any engine but the 5.7 liter! They need to do some more research on that ... Read More
I have a 2009 Tundra 5.7L with 5000 miles on the engine. The truck has been to the dealer 4 times for the engine KNOCKING noise, the noise I have is not piston slap, I've owned 3 GM trucks prior to buying the Tundra and I know what piston slap sound like. My issue is different from the issues most of you are reporting. The engine KNOCKING noise in my engine ... Read More

I was getting my truck serviced at Toyota of Lewisville this past Saturday,one of the largest toyota dealers in Texas. I think there was 1 2008 Toyota Tundra on the lot and it was not a 4x4. Maybe 2 2009 Tundras and they also were not 4x4's. I thnk they had 5 2010's. If you can find one I think you might want to snatch it up if the price is ... Read More
We are looking for a 08 or 09 tundra Double cab,TRD, tow pk, white or dark grey, 4x4, 5.7 engine, in Southern CA. Wanting to pay no more then 30,000 + TL. any suggestions on a dealer with this price? :) Toyota is giving 3000. rebates off the MFSR, Looking for more.
Help. I priced a 2009 SR5 4x4 Tundra exta cab 5.7 Flex fuel today at $29,564 (before 4% sales tax). This seems high. VIN is 5TFBW54159X093786. They told me no rebates on 2009 models yet. Their list price was $34,970 on this truck. I live in Alabama. Any help appreciated.
The fun varies, from camping to dirt-bike riding to water-skiing. But the vehicle that invariably gets tasked with hauling the corresponding equipment is a full-size pickup truck. You know, like the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, 2009 Ford F-150 or 2009 Toyota Tundra. 2009 Full-Size Pickup Truck Comparison Test
1972ck You say " 5.7 liter V8 is due to the use of short piston skirts." You sound like a dealer .Are you a Toyota rep yourself ? You say "You will hear the same exact "piston slap" on a new Nissan or Dodge for that matter " My cousin repairs Nissans at a Nissan dealer and they do not have piston slap. My wife owns a aluminum short shirt Nissan ... Read More
1972ck As far as expectations..... 1. Toyota should at least acknolage the problem and replace or fix the engines that are knocking. I went to the dealer and started a NEW truck and they do not knock at all . Even my neigbours tundra does not knock. 2. Well yes , I could sell my truck but then who in their right mind would give me a proper market price with ... Read More
what truck would you be looking to purchase rather than Toyota Tundra? Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, Isuzu, Internationals, Freightliners? others? how many individuals do you think will not purchase remaining 2008s after reading this discussion/ being educated by toyota engineers as to what is progress of investigation / transparency / open dialogue, is this a sticker for purchase, resale values, detriment to investments for the stockholders? it is design / manufacturing / ...

is this problem existing on 2008s 2009s? is there fix in? do you have any survey of current engines? those with newer acquistions? speaking to this issue, what about other owners pulling loads?? is the survey 1 in 100 owners with similar problem 1 in 1000, 1 in 10,000 any other factors occuring @ same time pulling load,,major hills? flat ground? exxongas? 10% ethanol?
I own a 2007 tundra .Bought April 2007 great truck. I had GM trucks all junk .They would not fix the crap even under warranty.The engine is the best on the market. makes a person think that you work or own one of the big 3 or a lawyer wanting a job.

I wish the Toyota website would be showing 2009 Tundras ( it's almost Feb !! )
Forget the diesel. http://www.autoblog.com/2008/09/22/toyota-considering-building-a-bat-truck-cance- ls-small-diesel/ Seems they are trying to build a truck based on the Prius technology.
Anyone heard when 2009 Tundras: will start rolling off the production line? will appear on Toyota.com ? will be able to be ordered at the dealer ?
The reason Chevy ride is superior to the Toyota is simple. Chevy has a better stronger frame. The Toyota frame has more flex, which translates to bounce and bumpy for riders. Notice how Toyota is re buying older trucks from owners due to chasis problems. They still have the same problems with their smaller trucks like the FJ Cruiser. The Tundra is great on looks, but it really cannot measure up ... Read More
I picked up a new truck last night for $500 (before $5500 in rebates) under invoice. There are plenty of trucks out there still and you can probably do better still as every dealer I called said no problem to that discount, however they claim Toyota is trying to dry up the supply so they don't have to have such high rebates and can bring out their 2009. I had to ... Read More
Here is what I think should be changed for the Tundra in 2009. 1) Crew-Max models should get an optional longbed package (6.5 ft bed) 2) Improve Fuel Economy (around 20 MPG) 3) Include a newer selection of rims 4) 4.7 Liter should get out about 300-315 hp/ 320-340 lb-ft torque 5) Have a standard 30 gallon fuel tank (currently has a standard 26.4 gallon tank) 6) Bump up the payload ...

Hey guys I currently own a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500. It has about 55K miles and so far I've had no problems with the truck. My mileage is also somewhat decent. I am averaging 18 MPG all over. But I saw a Tundra a week ago and it was also very nice. It was a double-cab 5.7 l V8 2x4. I own a Dodge Ram quad-cab 5.7 l 2x4, and I ... Read More
I bought before 5 years a used 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan for $2000, Blue book price was $5000. I got a deal because it had a high mileage (157,000). After 5 years the mileage is over 200000. I had no problems with the engine or the transmission. All of you know that the quality of the F-150 is much better than the Dodge Grand Caravan. Most owners of the new F150 ... Read More
Thank you for the information. The dealer offered $4000 rebate or $1000 with 0% finance. The sticker price is $28,658 wants $25,328 with 0% finance. He showed me his invoice price and he claimed he wants to sell it without making any profit. May be he gets incentives directly from Toyota. I have a problem with the Tundra. I made some research and found out that bed bouncing is a big ... Read More
*based off of limited knowledge so take the following comments as "sketchy"* There will be a new small V8 but I do not remember if they said it would be for 2009. I don't expect any changes for the 09 5.7 V8. Since I have not heard of any major changes, I do not expect to see many or any at all. Prices usually do not change much but the dollar ... Read More

Mr. Rube...True enough about Big3 being tougher than Tundra. I own a 1st gen. Tundra that is a total city truck; never worked an honest day in its life. Reliable as it gets, as was my 394K '85 SR5. But, I looked at the video of the 2007 Tundra crashing and smashing around on a washboard. Disgraceful. The Ford was well-controlled, as was the GM truck. Boxed frame or not, you ... Read More
Well, the Tundra, and it's predecessor have been around 16 years now, without makiking nary a dent in the domestic full-sized market. Toyota finally learned that 7/8ths of a truck wasn't going to cut it, so, they came out with this bloated Tundra, with some apparent intial success. People are discovering that if you actually want to use these trucks, however, they aren't up to the task, just like the predecessors ... Read More
I saw pictures of the Toyota Tundra Diseal that is to be built in probably 2009. It's built with a 6'5 inch bed. That's a strong indication Toyota will finally build the CrewMax with a 6'0 inch bed. Does anyone know if it will be built in 2008?
I think those are excellent power targets, and Toyota should NOT produce a diesel/HD unless they can reach those. That will be the cost of entry. DrFill
Before you start the flames, let me once again say that I've owned 2 Toyotas, 1 of which was really good (1985) and one of which was mediocre at best (1992). But at least they both had relatively beefy fully boxed frames considering they were "mini-trucks". The riveted c-channel Tundra frame is a huge step backward. Why would Toyota do that? To save on cost maybe? I dunno, but it's a ... Read More
The 2007 SEMA Show in Las Vegas is not for another three and a half months, but Toyota is getting its ducks in a row preparing for what promises to be a big week in Sin City for the Japanese automaker. It's unveiling not one, not two, but three vehicles at SEMA, including the all-new 2009 Corolla. The current Corolla has been around the block a few more times than Toyota ... Read More
Word in SAT is it will introduce at the 2008 Chicago auto show and be available as a 2010 model in spring of 2009, the diesel engine will be 10 cyl but more like a VW W10 configuration, designed by Toyota's Hino, castings done in Mexico, with final machine work and assembly done by CAT at a plant in SAT that CAT purchased about a year ago a good possibility with ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Tundra Heavy Duty Diesel Toyota Motor Corporation has been eyeing the Ford F-250, and Ford F-350 market for a while now, and they have announced that when the Tundra half-ton sales hit 200,000 units per year they will start production of a Tundra diesel. It may be called the Tundra 2500 , and the Tundra 3500 . It is speculated that Toyota will use a 6.4 liter V10 diesel that will ... Read More
Congrats man. Looks like you did your homework beofre buying, kudos. BTW, Toyota's remote starter function is like that on all models offered with it. When we looked at the RAV4 a few weeks ago, the system worked the same way. There is probably a workaround for it, but I have no idea what that could be. As a Ford guy myself, I still believe that Ford trucks are the still ... Read More
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.
"I wouldn't consider a 4-star test a "weakness", any more than you would consider 10k towing in a Silverado a "weakness". It's a small victory for the domestics, but the IIHS is a tougher test, and I will wait for the other shoe to drop before making any conclusions." Why don't you consider it a weakness when all the major competition is 5-stars? As for towing, a 2500 HD Silverado with ... Read More

Again I never suggested the trucks would fall apart. Great for Toyota to match the 80-90's GM and Ford trucks for frame integrity. The standard now is fully boxed frame. If you don't understand the benefit of that, that's your problem. It had nothing to do with crash tests. It reduces chassis flex. As to what it did for Ford is gave Ford the best chassis in the fill size market. ... Read More
Not sure where the numbers are coming from, but just so you know, the dealers I talked to say that the CrewMax is arriving in mid to late March. He also said that all of the first few deliveries of the CrewMax are sold to customers and that people ordering from his dealership now have to wait until mid-April to get theirs. If that's true, I'm guessing that Toyota will sell ... Read More
Not sure who posted that, but why do you say this as far as truck sales are concerned? The Ford F-150 has been the best selling truck for how many years now? Everyone is just getting caught up in how powerful this new Toyota 5.7L engine is. I admit it sounds like a sweet engine coupled with a 6spd transmission. But let me remind you Ford will have it's new 6.2L ... Read More
They pulled their new Corolla from release after seeing the new class leading Civic. Again, following not leading This is false btw. Some journalist somewhere made a supposition 12 months ago without having all the information. The Corolla was delayed because it ran into a monster and had to take a back seat...it wasn't the Civic it was the Tundra!!! The Corolla is due to be released next month but that ... Read More
The Toyota Tundra will be out by the end of this month. Looks to my perspective the 5.7 L will kick out 375 horsepower/ 405 pounds feet of torque. The 4.7 L V8 kicks out 271 horsepower/313 pounds feet of torque, and 4.0 L V6 will kick out 236 horsepower/266 pounds feet of torque. That looks like a tough line-up. Maybe in 2009 they will also have diesels. ;)
