Bought a 2023 limited, came with a defective transmission from day one. Got it replaced, went another 1000 miles and went to merge onto a busy highway and lost all power. Dashboard lit up like a Christmas tree. Parking brake malfunctions daily, terrible window wind noise, software is buggy, throttle control is brutal. Toyota Corporate has been nothing but shady and grimey dealing with all of this. Will never buy another Toyota as long as I live.

Toyota wants you to pay monthly for functions

I just bought a 2023 Tundra Platinum and won't recommend this truck UNLESS you fully understand what Toyota is trying to do and can live (and pay) for it. Toyota is trying to setup their cars as a service where you pay monthly for car functions even though you already paid them $69,000. Simple things like remote start from fob Toyota doesn't work unless you pay a monthly fee for wireless......which you SHOULDN'T need if you already have internet access thru your cell phone. 2nd all those functions that require Toyotas wireless to be enabled (requiring monthly fee) stop working when you DON'T have cell coverage .....REALLY??? Toyota really is working hard to "screw" over its customers ....

I bought the 2023 Tundra 1794 package. The interior is nice. Within 2 days the rear bumper end cap separated from the main bumper. I called the dealer and they said this is common! They've had several do this. It will be 4 WEEKS before they get the brackets to fix it. Also I noticed that the engine while idling while I ate lunch in the truck is a bit rough. Finally, the fact that Toyota says I won't get my second key for 6 months because of the chip shortage is annoying. I will keep it at least a year. If further problems arise I guess it's back to the F-150.

Hybrid power but poor mpg

First time truck owner and I love this tundra power but the mpg is well below expectations. I’ve been driving conservatively on Eco-mode for 2 months and I’m averaging 16.7! Estimates are 20/24 for RWD. I agree with other reviewers about the dangerous pre-collision warning and lane assist. I had to disable both as it overpowers the steering and jerks you away or slams on the brakes (with a big BRAKE warning) even if you’re not even close to an object. The steering overall is great & smooth. The interior is beautiful and comfortable. Love the 14in screen and simple to use knobs, but my pet peeve is the lack of split screen for navigation and media (like my previous Lexus). No major issues and I do get a lot of compliments plus it’s fun to drive but very disappointed on mpg. UPDATE: Love the redesign but full of problems that Toyota won’t fix. I’ve contacted HQ numerous times with zero resolution. Let’s start with the terrible mpg for the hybrid. Averaging 16.5 in the city on eco mode. 19 on Hwy which isn’t bad but nowhere close to the 20/24 epa estimates. Second is the squealing brakes in forward or reverse braking. Apparently it’s a common problem with these new tundras but Toyota has no resolution in place nor will they fix or inspect the brakes. This occurred at 1000 miles and I am now at 10,000 miles. It’s an embarrassment driving around & pulling up to a red light with squealing brakes. I wake up all my neighbors when I back out of my driveway every morning. The third major issue I’ve encountered is the dash cam. I’ve never used it or even turned it on but it regularly beeps if I hit a speed bump, or like today, it completely malfunctioned and beeped erratically for 35 minutes while I was driving. It continued to beep even after turning the vehicle off. There’s no question this truck is beautiful inside and out plus has incredible power and acceleration but this has been a huge disappointment.

I paid top dollar for this hybrid truck that they claim would get 20 miles to the gallon. I’m a construction manager and I drive in the city a lot. I’m getting 13 miles to the gallon. After 15 months of driving the front differential burned up and there aren’t even parts in existence to make the repair. I’ve been told theyre manufacturing the parts. I’ve no idea how long I’ll be in a rental. I bought this truck for fuel efficiency, and Toyota reliability. I got neither.
