    They should just let us choose the sound. Maybe I want the Jetsons car sound one day, then a Harley the next (straight pipe, of course!) and maybe a space shuttle launch, etc.

    Back in October I put a deposit down for a 21 Tundra Trail Edition in army green. It was supposed to be here November 1, then got pushed to December 1 and it was just sitting at the port for some reason the whole time. No worries, had a Tacoma and wasn’t in a rush. I just wanted to jump on the high trade value. The local dealer is incredible and kept me informed the whole way, nothing they could do.
    Mid-December comes around and they’re like hey, we feel super bad it’s taking way too long. We escalated this issue and no one knows why it’s being held up. You can either wait longer or we’ll switch your deposit to a 22 of your choice.
    Might as well right! So I switched it up to a 22 Sport in army green, supposed to show at the end of February according to Toyota.
    Guess what showed up today at the dealership? That damn 21. Taunting me.
    They asked if I still wanted it but I declined. I’ve waited this long.
    There’s no question in this post. My wife couldn’t care less about my constant vehicle escapades. I just had to share the story. Hopefully the 22 will be on time!

    You can’t turn it off unless you have TechStream like the dealer does. It comes as a package with the JBL premium audio but it seems Toyota doesn’t advertise it. Toyota has been pairing those features with JBL high end audio in other Toyotas as well.

    Interesting. I can say the cabin is very quite and listening to things like podcasts or radio that sometimes require higher volume do to driving noise is a lot easier.

    don't know if this has been posted yet, but looks like Carven exhaust put out a vid of their new system for the 22s.
    If you're wearing headphones might want to lower the volume.

    All I gotta say is big yikes, personally like the stock exhaust better.

    It’s stupid to rev the engine until it hits the rev limiter. Looks like the exhaust tips also hit the bumper side panel.

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    Not interested in the sound of a V6. I would just as soon have peace and quiet.

    yep they were bouncing off the rev limiter and tips were hitting. no idea why they though that was the thing to show off the exhaust, instead of just a simple start up, a few revs and a drive by. Just kinda skipped around the vid til they showed the truck on the road.

    Anything is possible, but do you want to bring a truck you just paid 50k + for to the body shop.
    If I was a betting man, I would put my money on a nightshade package for either 23 or 24 my. By then the trucks should be pretty well figured out.

    i am sure many of you here are old as dirt (55 or older) and well if your not good for you , you still have an opportunity to fxck things up , but i remember a time a simple time not that long ago when they used to sell something we all thought was magical …………a towel (if you ordered 3 towels you would get 2 more free or something like that) however this wasn’t just a towel it was a miracle towel. You see it could remove spilled tea, pop, pet, wine stains as quick as a whistle, it wouldn’t drip after it picked up a spill , it could wash, dry, and polish many surfaces and it wouldn’t scratch surfaces plus it was washable it was reusable it was basically a semi truck of paper towels that lasted more than 10 years !!!!

    This miracle towel was introduced the same time the greatest of all trucks ever produced was rolling off the assembly line the 2007 Toyota Tundra.


    The 2022 Tundra is to be the ShamWOW of trucks but the wastegate saga and turbos have me nervous. The world is watching.

    Chemical Guys makes a Mammoth towel in all sizes, does a great job of drying vehicles and could also be used on spills. They do have specials and you cant get one for 50% off at times.

    I had a 2010 Tundra, the model that they stated the accelerator would stick and the trucks could kill people....mine didn't stick. Put over 145k miles on it and gave it to my nephew for graduation.

    I have a 2022 Tundra, but I'm not experiencing the turbo issue, mine seems fine. How many miles do you have on your 22 Tundra that is making you nervous?

    The turbo issue is so hyped up now. One Facebook post has everyone worried. I’ve seen plenty of posts from people saying the dealer cleared the code and it never came back.

    Only a small number of people seem to have any real problem at all.

    I'm not worried about the turbo issue much at all. I'm worried about the other issues I'm seeing around and it's not from one or two loudmouth whiners either. There are some serious un-Toyota like fit and finish issues and even electronic gremlins. It might have something to do with Toyota trying to make up for lost time (800,000 cars worldwide in ONE month, holy crap!).

    Hyped Up? You mean all the threads well before the 22 was released telling people they would have turbo problems were just made up hype? No experience in there? Then the predicted turbo problems show up day ONE on the new trucks just like a bunch of us said they would. Gee, how did we know? You know how we knew? We owned turbos before most of you were born and they were crap then and they are crap now. They'll always be crap. There's just a new bunch of suckers to sell them to. Every generation has to learn the hard way and the 22 Tundra will be that hard way. The Tundra peaked with the last gen.

    Well I guess put me in that line of "all day suckers," @texmin but I'll tell you from personal experience, and I have to vehicles in my garage now each with turbos, and I've had zero mechanical issues.
    Engines are smaller now, not because the manufactures wanted to, but because of MPG laws. Turbos serve their added HP purpose. My $0.02.
    Hell, before we know it, the ICE won't even be around anymore anyways...we'll all be in EV's.

    It’s not “turbo issues” it’s a bad batch of waste gate actuators that got installed in a unknown number of trucks. There haven’t been any issues with the turbocharged engine system as far as design go. The fitment issues are real. The trim around windows and door seals and stuff are pretty poor quality and hopefull there’s some tsb’s coming out to address it.
    I know I’ll be asking my dealer about some fit and finish issues I have. I’m just waiting to not be the first one. My truck has been flawless besides one time the infotainment screen froze on navigation. Everything worked behind the frozen screen which seemed weird. 900 miles on mine.

    The Tundras sell over sticker and the dealerships still cannot keep them on the lot, I guess no one is listening to this reasoning, me included.

    I own three vehicles with turbos, two are Toyota and one is Subaru. I have also owned several vehicles with turbos in the past, never an issue.

    Pathetic. What’s the turbo problem, do you know? Has the turbo failed? Or is it just an electronic defect? There is not enough data to support the claim that the Tundras turbo is unreliable.

    Turbos have improved greatly since the 80s. Even so there are plenty of reliable turbos. Toyota has turbos in plenty of vehicles across the world. A good example is the Land Cruiser which may see hundreds of thousands of miles in extreme environments where reliability is the number one priority.

    Nowadays, the main failure point for turbos is oiling. This can be addressed by proper maintenance.

    I’ve owned a handful of vehicles with turbos both (gas Subaru, Audi, Toyota, Nissan and diesel Dodge, Toyota, Mercedes) and never had any turbo issues ever. I’m not worried at all about the defects seen in some Tundras. I’m absolutely certain it’s some manufacturing/assembly issue that will be addressed quickly.

    Never understood all the hate, towards turbos in a gas engine and the claims of them being unreliable, yet those same people have no problems with turbos in diesel engines.

    I was going to say pretty much the same thing. Diesels have been turbocharged for at least 30 years and would go for millions of miles before the days of DEF/EGR, etc.

    This situation I believe is not about people hating turbos. It’s more about the realistic people stating that a total redesign is going to have issues but then you have the diehard fan boys saying there are going to be no problems with this new model. There are lots of fit and finish issues and electrical issues right now as well as the Westgate problem. this is what the fan boys knock the big 3 for. But they find excuses for Toyota.

    Any first year redesign model will have issues, will be reported, and will be resolved, and most are corrected in the next production year. I am not a fan boy, but I am happy that I have a 22 Tundra rather than being one of those less fortunate people that don't have one and need to complain about them instead.

    I fully agree that I'd never buy the first year of a major redesign. But they would have had issues even if they'd put in a 5.0L or 6.2L V8. But then the V8 guys would be making excuses for Toyota.

    Yeah the 2022 Tundra/ShamWOW might just be the model where ole’ Vince starts beating up hookers and getting arrested….
