    Bought my 4.6 Tundra a couple of weeks ago. It's a 2011 with 84,000 miles and runs great. I was wondering, just what is a high mileage Tundra? My previous truck was a 1996 Ram 1500. Tranny replaced at 73,000, and it was slipping again with 154,000 miles. I'm guessing that using synthetic oil prolongs engine life.

    For a Tundra i would say high mileage starts around 150,000 miles. There are some on here that have or know someone with Tundras in the 200k-300k miles. There is a million mile 2007 tundra out there too.

    I saw one on FB (2006) that just hit 400k. Zero issues otter than an CEL for an 02 sensor that needed to be replaced for quite some time.

    Agreed with above.
    Your truck should last you a long time!

    I'm glad to hear I made a good choice. The first oil change is on the dealership, but that's not till October.

    I'm guessing an older fella like me owned it. He put an after market back up camera on it. Haven't got to use it hooking up one of the trailers yet but have great expectations. My Wife is a horrible trailer-hookup-helper!:annoyed:

    I have just over 252,000 miles on my 2007 Tundra. It does have the 5.7 in it, but IMO if you do your maintenance schedule "religiously" including the transmission...it should last you as long a long time. I still drive mine everyday for work and my work can take me hundreds of miles a day at times.

    FYI: Forgot to mention this earlier, you're going to have issues with your AIP system and since you've got a 2011 you'll be on your own. Good news is you can do the work yourself and not have to pay your local dealership thousands of dollars to fix it. I have replaced both pumps and both valves. You shouldn't have any issues till about 100k miles or so. My first one went out around 108k miles and my other right around 112k miles.

    What causes them to fail? Was there ever a recall for that?

    The design of the air inlet tube (also referred to as the Trumpet) lets water in and corrodes the electric pump as well as the valve. The new design has a cover over the front.

    There was no recall but Toyota did two things.

    1) There was a ECM update to adjust the timing of the valve to prevent some exhaust from going back into the AIP system.

    2) Toyota extended the warranty on 2007 to 2010 models to 10 yrs and 150k miles.

    So us 2011 guys are left high and dry since Toyota didn't start using the new parts until 2012.
