Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: You're going to burn through a lot of dinosaurs while chugging around town, and any rear passengers you may have to carry are going to feel real cramped, but at the end of the day this is a solid truck.

2004 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012011

Tundra Limited Double Cab 4.7L/285

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,400 miles


I have driven Toyotas since I paid for my own vehicles (32 years) because of their reliability. When this truck was 2 years old the coating on the mag wheels started peeling off. I drive this vehicle about 6,000 miles a year. The top of the engine has to come off to replace it - it is inside the engine! When my trusted mechanic told me that I thought he was joking! No joke. Now the power steering hoses hoses have to be replaced at 39,400 miles for a little over $700. So much for Toyota reliability and my loyalty.
