2017 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #2

May 202019

Tundra TSS 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 57,472 miles


Back in December 2018, with only 42,300 miles, I had to do a complete break job on my 2017 Tundra. The Toyota Dealership resurfaced all rotors and replaced all brake pads.

Now on May 20, 2019 with only 57,472 miles, I have been noticing a shake in the steering wheel while applying the brakes. Took the vehicle into local Toyota Dealership and they said the front rotors had to be turned again. They discounted the cost of this service.

This is unreasonable wear and tear on a half ton truck that does not pull a trailer or haul heavy loads. I believe that Toyota has a design issue with brakes on this vehicle.

In all the years I have purchased and drove half ton vehicles, I have never had a vehicle that goes through brakes like this one.

Update from Jun 3, 2019: Approximately 21,000 of the 57,472 total miles have been long distance highway miles to New Mexico and Kentucky. There is absolutely no way the breaks should have worn out on this truck. I had a Toyota Certified mechanic tell me that the factory installed break pads are 3/16" thicker than replacement pads and that this was done to get these trucks past 42,000 miles before the breaks completely wear out. Replacement pads are not near this thick. He said that Toyota is away of the warping problem on the rotors and the only way to get around this problem is to install non OEM break rotors with cooling holes, grooves with matching break pads that help the rotors dissipate heat.

Tundra SR 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission

Steering wheel shakes when braking at high speeds. West Kendall Toyota of Miami told me brake rotor warping is covered to 12000 miles only. He offer me a charge of $119 per axle to resurface each rotor.
