2006 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #3

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 94,000 miles


I started my vehicle and began to drive down the street. My truck light came on and I almost got into an accident because I lost power. I took it to repair shop and got the code of 2445. When I talked to Toyota I was told that it is a faulty air pump and 3 valves for the air operated injector system a $3500 dollar repair. I was told that moisture gets into the pump which causes the pump to send insulation into the valves. This sends the vehicle into limp mode causing a loss of power. I'm lucky I was not on the interstate or it may have killed me. Toyota knows about this defect and refuses to acknowledge the problem. They changed the way it is configured in the newer models and issued a recall for those but refuse to fix the older models. This is a clear lack of safety on their part. If this was to occur on the interstate then people will get hurt. I ask you to seek out Toyota for the safety of drivers and make them recall these parts.

Tundra 8-cyl

2006 Toyota Tundra, V8 when the vehicle is started the idle goes to a high rate of RPM. If you place the vehicle in drive, it will lurch forward if the brakes are not firmly pressed. The RPM is higher in the winter. The dealer states, that this is normal and a part of the computer control system. I consider this a potential hazard. The problem has been evident since I purchased the new vehicle in 2006.

When I let off of the throttle the truck kept accelerating road the brake to slow it down for 20 miles before it stopped 3/19/08 it did the same thing when I took it to the dealer for about 6 miles. The dealer could not duplicate the problem.
