Notes: You're going to burn through a lot of dinosaurs while chugging around town, and any rear passengers you may have to carry are going to feel real cramped, but at the end of the day this is a solid truck.

2004 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #2

Electric stability control engages when we hit a bump or pothole. No one can explain why this is happening. Power steering fluid line had to be replaced because of excessive rust causing it to leak. This part alone cost over $600. Premature tire replacement because of the inability to align properly due to extremely rusted components that could not be adjusted properly. Horrible steering wheel shimmy when on freeway that also cannot be explained or fixed (even after replacing the rear differential and axle) truck is extremely "squirrelly" and feels like it can go out of control, especially after hitting a hole or bump.
