2006 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #5

Jan 012017

Tundra SR5 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


I bought my 2006 Toyota Tundra CrewCab new. Love the truck. I washed the truck often and waxed it a few times a year. When the truck was around 10 years old with 80,000 miles on it, the clear coat started bubbling on the hood and roof. Within a year, the clear coat had flaked off completely. Normally, I would figure that I got 10 years out of the paint job but, when looking at cars and trucks older than mine, they didn't have this problem. Many Toyotas do. I just called a body shop to inquire about a paint job. He said it will probably be $5,000 and not worth it.

I'll continue driving it for another 5 years with a terrible paint job. Then trade it in for a new truck. Would love to find another option other than spending $5,000. Maybe, I'll go to a big box store and get rattle cans of clear protectant and paint my hood.

problem #2

Tundra V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,810 miles

The clear-coat on the roof has turned to powder and the base coat is completely gone. This vehicle has only 41,810 miles on it and it should not have paint issues with such low miles on it.

Tundra 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

The paint on the roof has faded badly. This seems to be from the sun baking it, however the engine hood is fine and it is exposed to the sun just as much. One estimator that looked at it thought that maybe the roof was repainted. we have owned this truck since it was new, only 10 miles on the odometer.
