    Seriously why would anyone even be thinking about purchasing this new Tundra. It seems like Toyota has a couple years left to fix all the problems, some of which are dangerous. Just give it a couple years than start looking at the tundra again.

    anyone?

    simple, because when I tested them all when I was shopping for a half ton , the tundra was the best out of them all for me and the best 1/2 ton on the market according to my needs and likes.

    Simple.
    - I wanted a new vehicle.
    - I wanted current technology
    - I wanted a new vehicle that I maintain or oversee maintenance from day one
    - I wanted ability to purchase manufacturer's extended warranty 10yr/125K miles.

    Evidently it wasn’t the best truck. Will be one day, not now.

    Nope. My '23 has been flawless. No issues. No regrets.

    Everyone has different values. I'm glad your '18 floats your boat - that all that counts.

    My ‘22 was flawless. Until it wasn’t. I didn’t even know about the issues with the bearings until mine went. Now it’s in the dealership with some tech who has never seen this problem before rebuilding the engine. ‍

    I'm confused. Do you own a Gen III or 2.5? If the latter, you really don't have a dog in this fight, do you?

    Jtruck just likes to leave his dog turds here. He's one of those who doesn't ever pick them up.

    It's definitely a gamble but you're paying a few grand under MSRP at least and they're giving you 1.99% on any amount you want to finance. It's not a bad time to buy one if you're willing to take the risk on a late 2024 build. Interested to see what the prices are in 2025 and/or when the refresh comes.

    That sucks man. Did the tech say he’s never done this before? From everything I’ve read, the engine rebuilds are done by master techs only. I know that is not much of a consolation, especially having heard that one or two rebuilds have failed, but it’s something.

    Sadly, you will use that war
    Nope, no way I would own an 3rd gen until Toyota can build it without imploding. People all over this site are calling out transmission, rear end, overheating, and yes main bearing basically falling apart. Currently Toyota is building a crap filled tundra.

    Give it a couple more years. If Toyota can’t fix the problems they are done in the 1/2 ton North American market.
    My old 5.7 is just fine.

    Guess no gamble at all right now. Makes total sense to buy a new Tundra.

    Maybe or maybe not. But any claims that Tundra sales are suffering are not backed up by sales data. Sales surge is being accelerated by rebates so over production is a an issue. But price a new one right and it will move.

    There are still some dealers hovering around sticker that have trucks piling up. My local dealer is not price competitive and their lot looks like they are a Tundra only dealer.

    Sales increasing does not necessarily reflect intelligence in that purchase. And from what I’ve seen and heard fleet sales of the tundra to rental companies has been increasing this year.

    Yep, you're supposed to sell your trash 3rd gen and get an old, used 2nd gen. You know, because everyone wants one of those...

    ya, ok, sorry, guess I have to get with the program and dump my perfectly running truck that I like and is not even recalled anyways as of now.

    I just did 1200 miles towing and it was awesome, auto load leveling rear was perfect, pulling power is something.

    lol, I loved my 5.7 , Im not a MPG guy so I never really gave a shit, I had one of the pigs as well for some reason. I never got over 15 no matter what the hell I did.

    That said, I just got 16-17 towing with near max payload (including tongue weight) and that is same or better than my 16 got empty on the same trip.

    this one pulls way better though I will say that, you ease the pedal down just a bit and it goes right to 2,400-2,500 Rpm, boost spools up and it just pulls, nice, easy, and smooth, Aisin also did a wonderful job (as usual) with the trans.

    I just put this clueless Jtruck guy is on my ignore list. It isn't often I do that, but it is warranted in this case. He has nothing constructive to add and only creates a lot of chaos and wasted postings. Don't take the bait, but if you can't resist, the ignore button can be very useful.

    Wow. @JJtruckon said a few facts and gave his opinion. Didn’t say anything that’s untrue and certainly didn’t attack any of you personally. If you can’t handle an opposing view on the Tundra in a Tundra forum, maybe truck forums aren’t for you. You can block all you want and talk about rainbows and unicorns, but that’s not going to make this problem go away.

    thats bs man.

    how is me saying this

    and then him saying this an opposing viewpoint?


    I said FOR ME, it was the best half ton.

    nobody said anything about personal attacks or opposing view points.

    so you don't think a massive generalization about "how can anyone buy one", basically saying they are all shit in a 3rd gen tundra section being met with some opposition when are in fact, way more trucks without this problem than with it surprising?

    respectfully, sounds like you may need to take your own advice about truck forums.

    FWIW, I did not block anyone and understand truck forums, Ive been on them since 2000 (tundrasolutions) with a 2000 tundra I got in late 1999 and have owned 5.

    take care.

    I didn't read every page of this thread so someone might have already mentioned this: the hybrids aren't part of the recall only because it's a 'Safety' recall and the hybrid version can still move (out of harm's way?) after a catastrophic engine failure whereas the gas version just stops wherever it stops.
