2002 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #2

Last year my spare tire and holding bracket tore loose from the frame and onto the highway. I went to a local garage to find the cause of the problem and was told that the frame is so corroded it is not safe to drive. Latter we learned that there had been two major safety recalls on the 2002 Tundra.many were notified of these recalls and had new frames installed by Toyota at no cost to the owners. We were not notified of these recalls by the dealership where we bought the truck nor by Toyota corporation.in November 2013 we went to shepard Toyota in rockland where we bought the truck and they told us that the recall had expired.I then sent a letter by certified mail to Toyota customer experience center on December 30, 2013. They did not reply. There were 2 major safety recalls on my truck and I was not notified.

The spare wheel/tire fell off my 2002 Toyota Tundra as I passed over a speed bump (at a very low speed) whilst leaving an apartment complex. I was unaware of having lost the wheel but my son, who lives in the complex, saw the incident & called me - by the time he called I was on the highway driving at high speed - if the wheel had fallen off whilst I was on the highway the consequences could have been catastrophic. I submitted a report (case # 208366) to NHTSA 11/25/09 after going on line & discovering that corrosion was an issue with the frame of this vehicle & that other incidents of a similar nature had been reported & that Toyota were preparing a remedy. On 01/10/10 I contacted my local Toyota sealer & was advised to bring in the vehicle at my convenience when the spare wheel would be safely secured within the truck bed pending a permanent fix for the problem.
