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.

2005 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 152007

Tundra 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 32,000 miles


I have a 2005 Toyota Tundra, SR5 access cab, 6-cyl and a 6-speed manual transmission. In Feb 2007 the throwout bearing started to go bad at approx. 30,000 miles (vehicle was about 8 months old) and the dealer replaced the entire clutch under warranty. About a year later the throwout bearing went out again, with about 65,000 miles on the vehicle. The dealer again replaced the entire clutch under warranty and also replaced the bell housing, stating that the bell housing was defective and was the cause of the problem. Now the vehicle has about 82,000 miles on it, is 5 years old, and the throwout bearing is again making noises, indicating that the clutch is going out again. This is not normal for a clutch to wear out 3 times in 5 years. I do mostly highway driving on flat roads and do not tow anything. The truck is now out of warranty and the clutch replacement costs quite a bit. I strongly believe that something else is the cause of the clutch repeatedly going out. Not many Tundra with this transmission ever came out and I believe that there is some kind of parts or design flaw that is causing this problem.
