Toyota Tundra Owner Experiences



  • finally decided to buy the best 1/2 ton truck out there... The Tundra.... What, with them posting constantly on the Toyota Tundra OWNERS Rate YOUR Trucks...

    Glad to have ya on board the Tundra craze folks... Hope you find them just as much of the powerhouse truck as I do...
  • Funny, I don't remember addressing a post to you recently but thanks for your worthless reply just the same. Todd-my 2001 Silverado just turned 10200mi with no problems at all to date in case you wondered! About 2000mi of it towing!
  • You know, you guys are right, this is silly and meaningless, all the bickering and squabbling. But that doesn't change the fact it's entertaining and amusing.

    Both the Chev and Toyota guys pick at eachother, but I've noticed that the Chev guys seem to call foul and accuse us of being trolls every time we post valid arguments (which is often). Then, people like Obyone beg the host to discontinue the subject, then later go back and delete their plea after it is rebuked. So Obyone, my words were truthful. You really do surrender faster than a French general in WWII and retreat! And this is always happening in the Toyota boards! If you don't like it, go to the Chevy boards where you belong!

    Obyone, I'm sorry, but even the Edmunds test drivers said the Chevy was an unsafe truck because of serious breaking problems. They said it was unnerving, and almost plowed into stopped vehicles and overshot intersections. How you can turn a blind eye to this fact and focus in on the Tacoma's one star side impact rating is simply the pinnacle of ignorance. I am not ignorant; I have acknowledged your fact about my truck. I am an adult and can admit to that.

    Obyone, I also see that you've been pulling the same stunt as your compadre Sonjaab. Yup, you too have been going back and deleting posts after I rebuked them. Remember your post about begging the host to ice this subject? By the way, Sonjaab was only willing to settle that little argument over our private e-mails. Hmmm, why is that? Well, let's just say he didn't want you all and especially the host to read what he had to say, I'll leave it at that. Come to think of it, Sonjaab hasn't posted since that day. Or maybe he has, but under a different name. You see, his credibility was destroyed.

    I keep coming back here to Edmunds because you guys keep giving me such a good laugh. It's like when I was on the debate team at school, only this has proved far less challenging. Keep up the good work!

    You are a case in itself. I haven't in the past and don't plan on ever deleting a post. If the post was deleted, it wasn't by me. Try emailing PF_Flyer as he or any of the other hosts from Edmunds have that power to delete. By reviewing the previous 20 posts, I haven't noticed any of my posts missing. Are you hallucinating?

    Surrender, that's even better. Nothing to surrender about dude. I'm glad that you've admitted that your truck has a one star side impact rating. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like you care or are planning to do anything about it. Any reason why? I'd really be concerned if I were you. Then again.......I'm not am I.

    You state that the Edmunds test drivers said the Chevy was unsafe. Care to post some links? Don't remember anything like that at all and should prove to be interesting reading.

    Lastly, I have never asked the host to ice this topic which is for Tundra owners. BTW, do you own a Tundra?

    Good luck on this one now!!

    "Edmunds test drivers said the Chevy was an unsafe truck because of serious breaking problems"

    Yea could you please post a link to this

    Ive read all their articles on the silverado and i never seen that in any of them
  • I don't recall asking you if I can post to you, but thanks for the concern... If you don't like what I post on a TUNDRA board, don't come....

    Anyways, Pluto makes some valid points about not just Tacoma, Tundra, but also Toyota... He also makes very very good points about Chevy.... I welcome his comments, as he is a Toyota owner...

    Glad ta have ya aboard Pluto... Oh, and if O.B. is having posts deleted, that must mean he is posting things that aren't suppose to be posted... Maybe Flyer needs to look at that a little closer, unless of course O.B. is lying and deleted them himself...
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    i thought you only had 30 min to delete your own post?
  • DUH, try reading Edmunds' long term review of the 1999 GMC Sierra, the article you guys keep trying to ignore and forget about. Month after month, the truck required long stopping distances and the ABS would prematurely engage. This was just one of MANY, MANY serious problems your beloved truck had.

    Obyone, my apologies. I had you confused with your twin Quadrunner500. He was the one pleading the host to ice this subject and after he read my post #786, deleted his post. I wonder how many times he has done this in the past? What a convenient way to save face. Everytime you are invalidated, you simply go back, erase your post and nobody will ever know you were proven WRONG.

    But I'm not like Quadrunner or Sonjaab, I am not a spineless child and I stand behind my words and take responsibility for them, even if they were in error. And that's why I wouldn't delete my previous erroneous post about Obyone being the post-deleting culprit.

    Obyone, it's ridiculous to suggest I go out and get rid of my truck because it has a one star side impact rating. Overall, the truck received good ratings, but like everything in this world, is not perfect and has its strengths and weaknesses. I would like to suggest to you that you get rid of your Chevy and buy a Volvo or Mercedes, the safest, top of the line model. You should also refrain from driving on weekends, holidays, and when the weather is bad. You should also not smoke, drink, eat fatty foods and have your home checked every year for radon and asbestos. ETC. ETC.

    I have news for you. Auto accidents take on all kinds of freaky and surprising forms. I know of instances of full size trucks hitting compact cars and getting launched, as if the car was a ramp. Or full size trucks hitting those guard rails (which are designed to stop smaller vehicles) and flipping over them into oncoming traffic. If the Toyota was so unsafe in the real world, we would be hearing about it. Just like we've heard about vehicles like Mustangs and Vegas blowing up when rear-ended, or Samurais flipping, or Explorers rolling over. Now, I wouldn't put up with that.
  • Go back and look at your old posts. Any of them may be deleted. You have 30 minutes to edit only.

    Maybe this feature should be eliminated, as it seems like the Chevy guys, especially Sonjaab and Quadrunner, don't like to play fair.
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    again i ask

    In that article was the following said? I dont remember it. Maybe you could post a whole paragraph with the following in it

    "Edmunds test drivers said the Chevy was an unsafe truck because of serious breaking problems"
  • I am not going to hold your little hand and say "Come along now, dear boy. Let me read Edmunds' story to you and show you all the pretty pictures. Bring your pink hi-liter and cute yellow post-it-notes so we can mark what you need to remember."

    The information on Chevy's bad brakes is clearly discussed not just once but many times in that article and is available for viewing by anyone willing to take the time to read it.

    Quadrunner, your #790 is so erroneous it screams for a rebuke. But why bother, afterall, you'll just go back and delete #790 after you get whupped.

    All the bickering and squabbling is NOT entertaining and amusing. It's a pain in the butt. It scares away users who WANT to talk about the trucks. It takes up the time of the hosts dealing with things that we shouldn't have to. It is NOT ACCEPTABLE behavior in Town Hall.

    It's time to stop.

    Anyone who continues this beyond this point, anyone who finds that they can't, for whatever reason, abide by the terms of use in Town Hall ... those people are putting their access to Town Hall on the line. I suggest you read the Membership Agreement which includes the following:

    Termination of Membership

    Please be aware that your membership may be revoked if you fail to abide by the terms of this Membership Agreement. In the event this should occur, you agree not to re-register as a member of Town Hall. Furthermore, you acknowledge that reserves the right to take action -- technical, legal or otherwise -- to block, nullify or deny your ability to submit Postings. You understand that may exercise this right in its sole discretion.

    I don't want to see ANYONE lose their access... so LET IT GO.

    Hoping that this is enough said...

    Sorry everyone for posting this message in an inappropriate topic, but I just love it when people post quotes from tests done on 1999 Silverado or Sierra trucks.

    Ok, we all know that a lot of those first GM production year trucks were plagued with problems!!! Far to many if you ask me, and that is also why I will never buy a 1st or 2nd year production vehicle from GM. I test drove a new Z-71 ext-cab in the summer of 1998 and I thought it was junky, could hardly keep the thing on the road!!
    But since then GM has cleaned up its act and has started producing trucks with great quality, and this can be seen starting in its 2001 year models like the 2001 ext-cab Z-71 that I own (which is so much better than the 1999 in my opinion and experience). 9 months and 7,300 miles and still ZERO problems of any kind. A pure dream to drive.

    It's great if you can post test results from a 1999 GM truck, but there is a world of difference from a 1999 and a 2001 Silverado or Sierra. So let's start seeing some quotes from tests done on a 2001 Silverado or Sierra, I bet you'd see results that are vastly improved.

    Once again, sorry for the post in this topic, but they axed our Tundra vs. Big 3 topic.

  • ....this may or may not be an opportune time to make this announcement, but I will. Also, just a bit of info, the Owner's Clubs are not for the my-truck-is-better-than-your-truck debate. If your model of choice does not have a folder in the Owner's Club, please contact me to arrange for its inclusion.

    The new Toyota Tundra Owners club is now available on Owner's Club board. Please stop by and introduce yourself in Meet the Members and let me know how I can help build your club.

    I have linked this discussion into that folder, but it will always reside here in Pickups.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Well if i knew i would share this info that is why i am asking.

    You know start doing reasearch for a new vehicle now.

    2005 will sneak up on me soon
  • Tundra already a very innovative truck, it is. First truck with DOHC ultra-low emissions V8, it offers. Toyota offer longest truck warranty in galaxy. Already, Toyota planning on larger truck with bigger engine, they are, mmph eheh.

    In time, Toyota follow similar path of Chevy, it shall. Share same destiny, they will. Both offer many, many options to young apprentices, they will. Remember, Tundra new, but in time, more options come, they shall. But Tundra follow Chevy's path of poor reliability, it won't. Toyota go to the dark side of bad reliability, it shall not.

    Rest, I must, mph eh eh mph.
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    it would actually if you wanna get technical be a 2006 (dod comes out in 2004)

    I have a 2nd yr silverado. Everything is wonderful. Im over 20K. Would i do it all over again? Definitly.

    Let me give you some advice bama and this is serious dont go to jiffy lube. I hear and see horror stories. They are constantly buying new engines because they mess up oil changes. Once my mom (works for a company that supplies insurance companies/people with used/rebuilt autoparts) brought home a pile of invoices from jiffy lubes insurance companies for new engines. Truely scary.

    Good post! Tundra also does not have primitive spark plug wires. It has direct coil ignition. It also has fly by wire throttle control. It is the first V8 truck engine with 32 valves. It will run like a scalded dog on the cheapest regular gas you can put in it.

    The Tundra is also the first pickup with 4 caliper front disc brakes. It has the most powerful brakes of any 1/2 ton pickup. It also blew the Big 2 away in the IIHS offset crash test. It rated good while the others rated marginal or poor. It is the only pickup to have seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiters.

    What amazes me the most about the Tundra is how solidly it rides. No rattles or shakes ever. It is quieter on the highway than my Maxima sedan. I test drove the Big2 first, but after driving the Tundra - I never looked back.

    In two years of ownership, I have not had a single problem. This is the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned.

    You'll notice a few holes where some posts used to be. Let me try this again...

    Posting insults is NOT acceptable. It is NOT fun. It doesn't matter if you're "just kidding around". People who aren't "in on the joke" don't know that and get the idea that it's OK to insult other users, which cause problems elsewhere. Please stop the nonsense NOW.

    No problems (repairs, rattles, squeaks, etc.) at all, or any manufacturing recalls on your truck?
    If not, that's great to hear.
