Tundra 8-cyl

  • 4,342 miles
7/2007 purchased 07 Tundra w/maint plan&extended warranty 9/2010 4342miles southcoast Toyota-maintenance, we asked them to take a look at surface rust. They noted it and said was due to salt air 2/2012 6504miles southcoast Toyota to perform brake service. Apparently brake pad had fallen off due to corrosion of calipers & pins and they refuse to service the truck because it would be too much to repair but refuse to even give us estimate. They said the corrosion has compromised the safety of the truck, but not covered under warranty. We were told that we did not drive the vehicle enough and that's why it is rusted so badly all over (truck was driven locally at least 3 or 4 times a week by elderly couple). We requested a copy of field reps report, but they said it is proprietary info we do not have access to. Service manager rudely asked us to remove our truck from the dealership but we cannot drive it off because brakes not operating properly. Were told to take the 5 yr old truck with 6500 miles to the junk yard. During 2010 maintenance when they were aware of corrosion, we should have been advised of possible brake failure or weakened structure due to rust that would occur in less than two years time. Instead elderly couple continued driving vehicle until unsafe to drive without being advised of how severe of condition the truck is. They have lived by the beach (2 miles from dealership) for 30 yrs & owned a few trucks, never rust so bad. Toyota is fortunate that no one was hurt driving this vehicle & they should do what they can to take this unsafe truck off the roads. Instead they deny any possibility that the corrosion may be a defect & is allowing this truck to possibly end up being driven since they are willing to release it. Its obvious this is not the 1st Toyota known to have corrosion issue and though not perforation, the rust is an oversight by Toyota.

ABS, trac and 4hi warning lights all on while driving. Vehicle ABS and trac control all ceased to function. Was driving in slippery road conditions. Almost lost control of vehicle. After stopping vehicle, 4hi would not engage. This is 4th or 5th time this has occurred over the past 2 years. Mostly occurs during cold weather but not always. Have taken truck to dealer after these occurrences and 2 of the times the dealer has been able to replicate the situation. When truck is in state of flashing lights, the truck always returns to normal when you turn off vehicle, wait and then restart it. Dealer has replaced parts now 4 times and still having the same problem

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. The contact was driving approximately 5 mph in inclement weather in 4-wheel drive. The contact applied the brakes and the vehicle did not stop. The vehicle skidded across the roadway while shaking violently and exhibiting an abnormal grinding noise. The contact was able to bring the vehicle to a stop by shifting into park. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnosis of the failure or repairs. The contac stated that the vehicle was previously repaired for the same failure and the dealer performed a front end alignment and rotated all four tires. The contact stated that the alignment caused premature wear of the tires. The vehicle was not further repaired. The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 30,000 and the current mileage was 30,150.

2007 Toyota Tundra. Consumer states cruise control does engage and then will not disengage brakes. The consumer stated the brakes would not hold at stop signs and the vehicle would move forward. The vehicle had electrical shorts in the wiring such as; the headlights, clock, cigarette lighter, alarm and door locks. The seat belts would not always latch. The windshield wipers would not activate, there was a severe shake coming from the front of the vehicle as well as when the brakes were applied. There was a noise coming from the 4-wheel drive, the steering would act erratic and the accelerator pedal became stuck which caused the consumer to have an accident while backing out of his driveway..

I own a 2007 Toyota Tundra (purchased new on March 07) I noticed around June of 2009 that the vehicle vibrates when braking at speed between 40 to 50 miles. Took the truck to the dealer where I purchased it from on September 24, 2009, the service advisor said that there are rust on the frond disks and the rear drums and it they need to resurface the front disks and rear drums. Truck then had only (15576 miles), I paid $418.12 for the repair, advisor said it is not covered by warranty. On Feb. 2, 2010 I contacted the Toyota consumer experience center in ca, they would not acknowledge there is an issue, and she gave me a case no. And said I should talk to the service manage at the dealer ( I did not contact him, because I felt I get no satisfaction). Yesterday on March 10, 2010 there is a new report about rust issues on the 2007 Tundra's; and its brakes. This happened to my truck especially after such a short period and only 15576 miles at the time I took to the dealer for repairs. I am now very concerned not only about the brakes that already started to rust after a short period, but also about brake lines, under carriage etc.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. The contact stated that his vehicle began to idle excessively and when it was in gear it lunged forward and backwards whenever the brakes were engaged. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that there were no failures. The Toyota manufacturer was called and informed the contact to take the vehicle back to the dealer so they could check the accelerator pedal. The contact stated that the failure was not related to the accelerator pedal instead if was the brake pedal. The contact also stated that the failure began to occur more frequently. The failure mileage was 51,194.

On July 12, 2009 I attempted to stop for a red light in my 2007 Toyota Tundra. No matter how hard I put on brakes, my vehicle continued to accelerate. The traffice report and insurance company documented my experience (of being unable to stop my truck). My truck was totaled.
