2005 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 192006

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,800 miles


Cruise control down shifts two gears on slight upgrades. Even elevation changes of less than fifty feet on the highway can trigger this. The sudden unintended application of full throttle acceleration is alarming and dangerous. This surge or power always result in the cruise control surging past the set speed usually by five miles per hour. Depending on terrain this can happen as often as every twenty seconds!

problem #1

Sep 262005

Tundra 8-cyl

  • 9,950 miles
We own "two" 2005 Toyota Tundra double cabs that are equipped the same. Both of these vehicles exhibit the same saftey issue. The issue: When driving with cruise control "on" at speeds of 70 mph, on slightly uphill track, the cruise control will command the vehicle to maximum throttle, shifing the transmission into passing gear. This action on the 287 horsepower vehicle, causes the rear tires to break loose on wet roads and can cause loss of control of the vehicle, sending it off the road or into a spin. Both vehicles we own exhibit this behavior and it has been reported to Toyota case # 200510040775.
