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.

2015 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

I own a 2015 Tundra crew cab. The family and I love to camp, so we purchased a brand new camper. I hooked up the camper to the Tundra utilizing the 7 pin connector. The dash display indicated the integrated brake control was working and fully functional. To my dismay, the brake control did not work to satisfaction and border lined a safety issue. With the gain turned up to 10 on electric mode, the camper's brakes barely engaged and rarely slowed down my truck. The camper is 7800 pounds. I have been reading forums and other Tundra owners are having the same issues with their ibc....there is not enough braking power with Toyota's factory ibc. Several times going down hill I did not think the electric brakes were going to slow to stop my truck! my Tundra did all the braking. I always had my family in the truck with me. Is there a recent service bulletin or update to this controller"??" aftermarket controllers work much better, but I want a clean look to my cab. Thank you

My intergrated trailer brake controller( part # 89547-0C010) is not functioning properly. It provides braking to my trailer only by using the manual slide. When braking, I feel no braking the trailer.

Tundra

  • 10,892 miles
Parking brake began to fail at holding my Tundra stationary in my driveway (which is approximately a 16% grade) at 10,892 miles. First service complaint Toyota found the parking brake to be operational but adjusted it. On my way home, this adjustment caused the left parking brake shoe to heat up and stick causing a 'death wobble'. vehicle towed to dealer. Toyota of nwa was able to replicate the failure during a test drive to a road of equal grade as my driveway. Parking brake shoes were replaced and inside of rotors machined. Parking brake operated normally for only a few weeks then began to fail again. Toyota sent a specialist to evaluate the failure. After spending only 2 hours inspecting and testing on a ramp, dealer stated parking brake operating normally but adjusted the cable from 12-13 clicks to 8-9 clicks. Parking brake began to fail two days later and parking brake pedal travel takes 15 clicks to the floor and my Tundra still rolls when in neutral with the parking brake engaged. Metal popping and clanking sounds coming from rear end after parking brake is engaged, transmission is shifted into 'park' and vehicle is turned off. The parking brake failure poses a safety risk for serious injuries and even death to my family as my house is at the bottom of my driveway. Demand letter for refund sent to Toyota.
