2001 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

I have brake problems. I have less than 36000 and my brake pad needed to be replaced. I have also had a abnormal vibration in the truck when applying the brakes. This has been the case since I purchased the vechilce new. Thought it was normal for the truck but guess not. Toyota is paying for the parts, and I'm paying for labor to replace rotors, pads, calipers to resolve the issue. Costing me $400.

There is vibration in the steering system, when applying brakes most noticable when braking from speeds over 45 mph or on down hills. I have had the brake pads replaced, rotors turned, and the problem returned in a few weeks. I asked Toyota dealership to repair, they refused, the vehicle is out of warranty. I'm the original owner.

2001 Toyota Tundra brakes shake excessively even after replacing them with new ones. Transmission makes a loud thump when going into overdrive.

I have a 2001 Toyota Tundra and have had constant problems with my brakes. There is strong vibration when using the brakes. I have had it "fixed" twice by Toyota and once by and independent mechanic and the problem comes back every time.there is a tsb on the truck but no recall. Toyota customers were not even informed of the tsb.

2001 Toyota Tundra brake problem. Severe shaking of vehicle do to brakes. Rotors feel warped. Gone through 4 sets of pads and resurfaced rotors 3 timesi N the last 2 years. Tech serve bulliten available but only for 36000/3yr im at 50000/but only 1 1/2... $2000 for the repairs and on top of that I spent quite a bit ofmoney already for the rotor resurfacing and brake pads. I was a Toyota fan until this....

Vehicle still shutters& vibrates when applying brakes after 2 times into dealer for warranty repair work. The dealer says that there is no problem. They replaced all brake pads and drums the first time and turned the rear drums the second time.
