    But how does that change the painful fact Lexus had dethroned Cadillac as America's most popular luxury vehicle? Obviously, most people don't share your opinion, do they?
  • bamatundrabamatundra Posts: 1,583
    I checked. Please post a link to a severe peeling problem. Like I said - I did a search and found nothing. I predict total silence on this one!

    Is she is just another liar or a Tundrawannabee? She certainly doesn't own a Tundra. It is sad to see unfortunate GM owners such as her and the Chihuahua relegated to making up Tundra problems and posting them to this group.
  • sonjaabsonjaab Posts: 1,057
    What cars or trucks do u or have u owned ?
  • sonjaabsonjaab Posts: 1,057
    Check back a few posts ask duck about
    his chipping paint...Then go over to
    and do another search...look for engine
    knock too ! DENILE is not just a river !
    GOOD LUCK ON THIS ONE NOW !........geo

    BTW: go over to the sedans thread here
    Check out a few of lexus problems threads
    Suprise..Suprise !!!!!!!!!!!
  • bamatundrabamatundra Posts: 1,583
    So you are admitting that you were lying about Tundra paint peeling? You being a lemonado owner - I can't blame you. Since your credibility to this topic was zero to begin with - don't worry!
  • h0udinih0udini Posts: 118
    your hand and read my profile to you.
  • sonjaabsonjaab Posts: 1,057
    A while back...No vehicles posted..
    DID you JUST update it ?
    Makes me wonder about trolls popping up!
    GEE; You don't own a tundra either !!!!
  • h0udinih0udini Posts: 118
    Quit skirting my question with your nonsensical diversions. If the Cadillac and its chain-driven V8 are so superior, why is Lexus the most popular luxury vehicle in North America?

    Or are you just going to post some more nonsense about timing belts and hearsay from online disgruntled Lexus owners?
  • sonjaabsonjaab Posts: 1,057
    Cuz those I farce belt driven motors
    an't last as long as a chain driven
    Caddy and have to be gotten rid of
    before $$$$$$ belt replacement.
    Like i said check out the sedans thread
    here at edmunds. Seem there are quite a
    few unhappy lexus owners who would rather
    trade 'em than fix ,em....geo

    Yeah I meant to sound neutral-was seriously curious as to why most of the peeling paint problems are isolated to the hood-not just on Tundra's really since I've seen it happen on other makes also.
  • ndahi12ndahi12 Posts: 235
    You always dodge the question

    1. LA emt asked you if your cousin changed the timing belt on his camry at 60K as recommended by Toyota. Please tell us.

    2. NHTSA has a compalint board where an owner MUST post a VIN number in order to register a complaint. I challange you to look up the complaints on the 02 Rado vs. the complaints on the 02 Tundra. You will find ONE for the Tundra vs. MANY for the Rado. You can do the same for all the Tundra model years and you will find a huge database for the Rado vs. a few compliants for the Tundra. The Rado has way more problems than the Tundra.

    The Tundra did have the brake problems when it was introduced, but late model tundras do not have this problem.

    The Tundra does have a start up clatter, but NO ONE has reported CONTINUED clatter like the Rado. If you read the GM Engine knock thread you will find Rados that clatter when cold, warm and under load.

    There is not one inicident that I know of of peeling paint on a Tundra. Chipping paint from rocks does exist. Most paints have become less effective of late because of the environmental regulations that ban certain substances that make paint stronger.

    I'm no paint man and I haven't had too much of a problem with all my GMs and paint peeling/chipping. Wondering if its related to excess heat from engine. The hood also takes the brunt of wind and debris at times. I'm assuming that the paint is applied in similar texture/thickness to all parts of vehicle. Is the quality of paint changing ???

    >The Tundra did have the brake problems when it was introduced, but late model tundras do not have this problem.<

    You've already admitted you have the engine knock (cast vs forged?), and your rotors replaced so it's not just the early model problems. As long as they put drum brakes on, they still have problem to me.

    And you're wrong about NHTSA. Your tindra generates complaints at twice the rate of GM or Ford. Each of the others outsells tindra about 7:1. Sorry.

    I don't think that the yappy Chihuahua or any other Tundra wannabee can come up with any evidence of Tundra paint peeling on the hood or anywhere else.

    You need to keep up!
  • h0udinih0udini Posts: 118
    paint problems when they look like those GMCs with huge patches of primer gray exposed.
  • quadrunner500quadrunner500 Posts: 2,728
    When 8 yr old Tacomas aren't covered with open-wound rust sores.
  • losangelesemtlosangelesemt Posts: 279
    Ya i got your post about the peeling. I'm not here to say that it IS a Tundra problem or it ISN'T. I think I've heard of one person complaining about paint issues. Mailman threw out a paint problem too if you accept his credibility.

    Hill asked the question I think in general to all makes of autos, so I'm just throwing out some ideas, not necessarily with regards to Toyota.
  • bamatundrabamatundra Posts: 1,583
    Runny is back! Is this the Chev Chihuahua tag team? Boy - these poor unfortunates need to just buy a Tundra and be done with it! Good luck on this one now!
  • h0udinih0udini Posts: 118
    Deep down you know very well that in the era Toyota made rust-prone vehicles the domestics were downright horrible. Enter the years of the Vega, Maverick, Mustang II, Citiation, etc. Coincidentally, my coworker's Toyota is well over 8 years and no rust.
  • losangelesemtlosangelesemt Posts: 279
    Man ya just gotta laugh at these threads sometimes ... entertainment at its online finest.
  • quadrunner500quadrunner500 Posts: 2,728
    You don't have to be a magician to see rust sores eating away sheet metal like cancer on Toyotas FAR newer than the '70s era you refer to.

    And where ARE all those '70s (and '80s) Toyotas? Rustin' in piece! Same fate awaits them all. It always has.
  • bamatundrabamatundra Posts: 1,583
    You are accepting a post from a poster who says that he owns a 2001 GMC Sierra Lemon?

    Don't you think it a little funny that someone that owns a $25,000 dollar Tundra does not have his own email account?

    Now the Mailboy is talking about trading in his Tundra on a Furd Stuporduty? What kind of sense does that make? There seems just a little bit of difference between a FUrd Stuporduty diesel and a Tundra. Is this poster totally confused?

    He posted that he thought his Tundra was not "real full size". Geez, this seems a pretty idiotic post - his Tundra is the same size it always was - it did not shrink. This makes me think that the imposter is just borrowing his Daddy's email address.
  • h0udinih0udini Posts: 118
    the 1970s and 80s Toyotas are already "RIP" and you wonder where they are, how do you know if they're rusting or not? And those so-called Toyota "rustbuckets" are what forced the domestics to clean their act up and produce a better product. What does that say about the domestic vehicles at the time?
  • duckshooterduckshooter Posts: 156
    I bought my first Toyota pickup in 87. I sold it in 90 before I went to Germany to a neighbor of my parents. It's still running fine @ 190K miles and has zero rust. Oh yes, it's in Toledo, Ohio (where they salt the roads starting in November?).

    That's 15 years and no rust.

    My 4Runner had not one spot of rust on it when I sold it at 96K miles and ten years - and it had NEVER once spent the night in the garage... and it had been from swamps of Alabama, tank trails and autobahns of Germany, central valley of California - chasing quail, to DC, to Kansas, and back to Alabama. Hardly an "easy" life for any truck. Not only did it have no rust, that "[non-permissible content removed]" paint job looked almost as good the day I sold it as my two year old "American" Tundra does now.

    If there are older Toyotas out there with body rust problems, I'd submit their owners didn't care for them properly.

  • quadrunner500quadrunner500 Posts: 2,728
    Please, get a grip. You make it sound like your Toyota was from the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli! My S10 Blazer has 137,000 miles on it, and I haven't pinned any medals on it for bravery.
    Your previous flawless toymotas are now somebody elses problem, my S10 has proved its worth and remains a keeper!

    I have tried to register but it wouldn't let me, I think do to the same email address. As for you thinking I am lying, well then that is your opinion. I have a green access cab 4x4 2001 tundra v8 4x4 with 22900 miles and I have had it for a year and a week. As for the problems you are looking for you will never find them cause the old tundra solutions crashed and that is where those posts were, not posted in the new tundra solutions. Look up taco in tundra solutions and you will see I am not lying and in fact it'll prove me right. If you still don't believe me then I would say you are way too ignorant for your own good.From now on I will post with my name on the bottom as to not confuse anyone(Nick).As for the other problems I have listed with my tundra others may not have them and some may, every truck is different.
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    Good post dude. I had the opportunity to exchange emails with your Dad when he first got the GMC. After his initial problems with his truck, I noticed that he hadn't post for a while and was wondering what was happening to his account as he didn't appear to be the type to waste his time trolling.

    What are you smoking? I have NEVER EVER had any problems with my breaks. Find me a post where I said I changed the rotors on my tundra. You must be smoking the good stuff. Can I have some?
