Notes: A dependable pickup option that does have a slight history of frame corrosion. Even though mud looks cool on a truck, it's best if you run this through the car wash every now and again.

2003 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #4

Tundra 8-cyl

  • 122,000 miles


After having had my tires rotated & balanced twice, I was told by the mechanic that it is possible that the tire belts are possibly starting to separate. While driving on the interstate at highway speeds the tires vibrate the armrest and the rear view mirror... at times very violently.

Tundra 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,000 miles
Driving at highway speed on a bridge, the tire blew out, causing the truck to spin around 180 degrees. The truck was able to be driven on the rim to an area where the tire could be changed. Inspection of all four tires showed no excessive tread wear and no items lodged in the tire which would cause a flat. We are still deciding whether to replace all four tires or not. Tire is dueller H/T 689.

Recemt rainy weather in southern California have shown the oem tires B.F.goodrich tires 265/70R16 rugged trail on my 2003, Toyota Tundra to be dangerous. These tires not only show significant wear, at only 17000 miles, but dangerously slip and slide on wet roads. On 2 separate occasions, in wet conditions, my truck slipped off the roadway. One occasion, resulting in damage to my front bumper. At first opportunity I replaced these tires with Bridgestone, dueler at revos, an exceptional tire in wet conditions. Toyota should be alerted to (1) the rapid wear condition of these oem tires and (2) the potential danger in wet conditions.

The truck has a severe pull to the right while driving. This occurs because an incorrect tire size was installed on the truck at the factory. Consumer has gone through arbitration, in which the manufacture is blaming on to the dealership and not correcting the problem.
