    Some people would rather complain.

    I was thinking about this thread the other day when I started the Tundra and just laughed. So quiet compared to my old 2000 7.3 liter diesel Super Duty. I had neighbors complaining 5 doors down. An it was bone stock. :D



    EDIT: it was a 1999. Forgot I got my first Tacoma in 2000.

    My 95 7.3 is LOUD! Especially on cold mornings. Its one of the very first 7.3 blocks produced, I believe its around 186xxx when I checked it through international. they slowly added some sound deadening to them throughout the years, and added split shot injectors the quiet them down even more. My buddy has 2 7.3s, a 2000 and a 2002, he was surprised how much louder mine was. Once I added an intake and straight pipe exhaust it got louder. I'm happy to own it. Between the 7.3 and the tundra I have 2 of the most reliable trucks ever made.

    Wow the majority of folks responding they love the roar. Maybe the other manufacturers should add to entice customers. Ridiculously dated design contributing to the sub 15 mpg fuel economy. Keep your Tundras because no 2010? plus trucks have it but the Tundra. What will happen to sales if the 2022 Tundra doesn't have the fan roar and subdued acceleration until the fan roar stops. Toyota are you listening, keep the fan roar or you will lose sales, increase fuel economy and drivability on cold starts. Oh the lifter clatter on cold starts after the engine isn't started for 4-5 days, keep. that sound resembles a solid lifter V8 from the 60's.

    Truth be told I love the Tundra but as someone stated all vehicles have things some don't like. Personally i don't like the fan roar. Lifter clatter isn't enjoyable but not frequent so i don't care.

    My likes:
    Exceptional turning radius
    Vibration free ride
    Probably the softest ride in any Truck
    Looks
    Room in cab
    Power using pedal commander

    dislikes
    fan roar
    unlock button not illuminated
    valve clatter
    stereo marginal
    doors hard to shut

    You want to talk loud, my 99 Cummins Turbo Diesel would wake the entire neighborhood during the winter when I fired it up. The Tundra purrs like a kitten in comparison.

    I noticed the start up roar noise on my 2020 at the dealer and dismissed it as a tacky gimmick, similar to some stereos playing "exhaust enhancing sounds." Over time it annoyed me that they'd seemingly put effort into that sort of stuff instead of something practical, but I'm sure their marketing people know their business. I just found it a bit patronizing.

    Eventually some pretty concerning sounds began intermittently happening at startup and with my listening for either the grinding sound or the loud underhood thump and ensuing engine shudder, I'm too preoccupied to notice the roar anymore. I seldom drive it, but it wears on me that most of the time when I start my expensive, new truck I am listening for something that sounds broken and I'm not even at 10k miles yet. No cam tower seep yet, so that's something. I wish it could all let loose at once and just get all the repairs over with already!

    You could just trade in your Tundra for a Prius... :angrygirl:

    Do you mean the underhood grinding, the thump sound and engine shudder or the fan noise?

    On a side note, I'm going to go start up my 92 f150, just to be certain it's as uneventful in a cold start as I recall. I never realized how much I took it for granted until I spent 60k on a new vehicle.

    I think he asked a reasonable question and tribalism made a discussion impossible. The guy even said he loves his Tundra - how intimate does he need to get with it to convince you?

    He doesn’t have to get intimate with it at all, he has to stop contradicting himself. You’re also right in that his original question was a legitimate one and he has also said he loves his truck. He has also said multiple times how he thinks it sucks and is not even a real truck and how domestic trucks he has owned have been so much better. He can’t have it both ways. Take his side if you like. Someone needs to because everyone needs a friend. You call it tribalism. Maybe it is. I’m not going to argue the point. It’s not worth it. If this tribalism offends you just remember that no one forces you to participate.

    I'm not offended. I've read how excited some people get about seeing the word "Tundra" being added to the inside of a truck bed, and got a pretty clear picture of what gets applauded. There are things my new truck does well (ie: turning radius) and things my 92 does better (ie: body panels won't dent easily). Both are true. I would guess his honeymoon phase with the vehicle is over and now he's realizing it's not as wonderful as some make it out to be. I agree with an earlier poster who suggested selling it, although I can attest that realizing the depreciation in the first year of ownership is a painful lesson in the power of marketing.

    Here she is. This is the only pic I have right now. Got a new phone a couple months ago.

    She doesn't leak a drop of any fluid, everything is functional, only thing she needs is a new steering box to get rid of the slop.

    All new energy suspension bushings underneath the whole truck, including cab mounts
    Mishimoto radiator
    Dieselsite coolant filter
    PHP hydra tuner
    Riff raff intake and straight exhaust
    New oem brakes
    Completely rebuilt front end with moog
    Updated glow plug harness to 00-03
    New oem glow plugs

    Unfortunately a tree fell on the bed and put a huge dent in it and a small dent in the cab, really discouraged me from putting more money into it. Truck had a pristine body.

    Right? Haha it was a huge pecan tree. Truck took the most of the hit and came out pretty good considering, much better than my roof. Only.other dent I've put in the truck was when I was loading a 500lb welding machine and the chain broke and it fell on the wheel well. Small dent though, machine fell about 2.5-3 feet. Truck is tough as nails. Need to source a new bed for it or build a flatbed

    For me the fan noise is a built in warm up feature. Normally wait till it goes away before putting it in D.

    Pretty sure the automatic choke sets the RPMs higher. You could probably recode that and it will go away. Learn to code.

    ROFLMAO sorry so long to return to thread but was out riding ATV's the last couple days. Without a doubt the fan roar impedes acceleration. If the engine is driving a fan then less power is going to the wheels. No doubt many Tundra owners have Tribalism (I like that word hadn't heard it before), I always used sheep or click. As far as selling it, as I said I like/love hate the truck, does that satisfy everyone lol. My financial situation allows me to buy and sale at will without affecting anything (who else installs a transmission cooler on a new truck with less than 300 miles, I was bored and it entertained me for a day, but definitely does it job keeping trans temps in check). It's a solid vehicle just dated. I knew it was dated when purchasing, didn't know a limited doesn't come with memory seats. When I start towing toys long distances again probably go back to 1 ton. No comparison on many fronts, brutal to live with day to day where the Tundra is very easy to live with. More than likely it will go to my 15 year old when she turns 16.

    As far as the honeymoon with it, I am still in it. It just soooooo easy to park and back compared to my last truck (1 ton). no doubt when hauling or towing there is no comparison. The pedal commander pretty cool, really brought the truck alive and I use city -4. out

    I am about 75% sure within 3-5 years I will be in an EMV (Battery powered truck). Incredible stats 700hp with 1200ft-lb torque. That is the future period. No fan roar, lol.
