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 #4

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 116,000 miles


Spare tire assembly has excessive corrosion. Spare tire could fall from vehicle while traveling. The Tundra frames are under recall for rust, this assembly is included with the new frames. My truck frame is in good condition and does not need to be replaced. The only area of my truck with rust is the spare tire assembly but Toyota refuses to replace it. How can this be part of the replacement package if my entire frame was rusty, but not if it is the only area with rust ? sure seems like a safety issue to me.

Tire was losing air and when I tried to replace it with the spare tire, I noticed a large bulge in the sidewall next to the wheel rim. This is the second tire of this manufacture that this has happened within the past year.

Gas tank defect, sometimes it indicates empty tank but it is not empty, sometimes it indicate full tank but it is not full. This tank is unpredictable possibly a manufacturing defect. Also the tires wears faster on the outer surface uneven. Sometimes the vehicle veers off to left and sometimes to the right may be related to ball joints defect or sloppy Toyota technician work or both. Updated 02/01/08

The contact owns 2004 Toyota Tundra. The contact stated that he heard a noise while driving 45 mph and suspected failure with the lower ball joint. The vehicle was towed to the dealer, and the ball joint was replaced at the contact's expense. Also, the dealer stated that the contact would have to pay for the tires, battery, and power steering fluid flush. He stated that he should not have to pay for these expenses because the vehicle was included in the recall. The manufacturer stated that this vehicle was included in the rcall and would mail him the notice. The current and failure mileages were 80,000. Left message 10/16/2007.
