2003 Toyota Tundra SR5 V6 from North America
I'm afraid Toyota will have to make some major changes before I would consider buying another one
At 26k miles I started noticing two different vibrations in my Tundra. The first was a side by side where the console would shake braking or not braking. The second vibration was a huge up and down, the whole steering column would bounce when I applied the brakes. I have owned Toyotas' for years and never had one of them in the shop for anything other than an oil change. I have now had the brakes changed out including new rotors (so the dealership says). I think the dealership didn't replace the rotors, but turned them instead. I am not at 35k miles and the problem is arising again. I'm at a loss as to why Toyota would let such a major safety issue go without notice or change.
The choice of tires for the Tundra is poor, causing uneven wear and tear.
The brake system is obviously not able to handle the weight of the truck.
The engineering of the brakes is poor and needs serious re-design before people get involved in serious auto accidents.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I use to have a Tundra sr5 v8. I brought the car with 62.000 miles and I sold the car with 88.000 miles. The only thing what I did was the belt and 2 tires in the front, oil and gas :) I brought a van because I need more space for tools, but I love the Tundra. Why is the Tundra keeping its price high (for the used cars) if they are not good, and why is this not the case for American cars?
