    This is my first Toyota product and it certainly isn't the brand I've read about, that's for sure!!

    Agreed. This is getting ridiculous. I love the look of the new trucks (I know some don't), but they have to get their shit together. Very uncharacteristic of Toyota. I am a Toyota loyalist so it doesn't phase me too much but I don't blame outsiders from looking down on them for the quality control issues.

    Hey, at least we now know that it's removable and not bolted or clipped on there :thumbsup:

    De-badge people swinging their feet right now

    Rona is a factor but I'm a little shocked to see this from Toyota too.

    gonna be a lot of debadged 1794s and platinums rolling around lol. I'm going to debadge regardless. I may even remove the TRD decal from the bed, haven't decided on that one yet.

    I like the badging of the platinum blacked out with my magnetic grey metallic paint. But why would they order new parts? Pull it off clean it up and re apply and bond correctly. As I look at my mounding it’s not just the quality of the bond it’s the quantity of the strips of 3M they used/didn’t use.

    I would go the de-badge route. I regularly do it with my vehicles. Easy to do.

    Dont let a few imperfections like moulding be what you base the experience off of. Those items can be fixed or removed easily. Is it frustrating....YES... but the product is still awesome. This is my 5th Tundra and a peeling piece of moulding that I can remove and leave off or have a dealer remove and replace won't be the thing I base an experience off of. 5 tundras and only replaced tires, windshields and changed oil is a great experience. 7 chevys and every one I have replaced the air conditioning unit and belt at 39K miles is NOT worth my time and money any longer.

    How about a bad wiring harness in the drivers door that disabled all lock function - and then a bad wiring harness in the dash that left a headlight stuck on. (I’m very unhappy about all of my interior panels being torn off like this.)

    All in the first 30 days of ownership, on top of all the cosmetic issues. I have a reason to bitch. No GM vehicle I have ever had has been as problematic or disappointing as this.

    Yes, the truck is awesome, but my concerns go past badging. Not to re-hash other posts, but I have owned this truck roughly 70 days, 34 of those it has been in the shop. Since then, I have developed issues with the power running boards, and now some sort of losing power issue. Twice, I have lost power while pulling across a roadway from a stop.

    I have not bashed the new Tundra in any post, as I own it and love it, but speaking for my own truck and no one else, I currently have a running list of 7 issues that area waiting on parts and/or diagnosis. I am not questioning whether the Tundra as a whole is awesome but some of us have units that are a little more defective than others. Problems will certainly occur with any brand, but there does seem to be a steady theme to quite a few of these issues. I think Toyota could have done a little better with the QC. I am currently waiting on a call from Toyota to discuss buy back/trade....we'll see. As I've said previously, how the brand handles the problems is what I base my opinions from more than the problems themselves. There are a couple brands I will never buy again, strictly based on how they handled the problems.

    Yes you have every reason to bitch. I do agree the QC for this generation is a ton frustrating. They should have done a much better job with these issues before the release.

    Both were peeling and have been replaced. Now my passenger side is starting to peel again.
    Toyota really needs to look at this issue and come up with an alternative solution. You would think this would be easy for them.
    I’m thinking about just removing the moldings and have something else done to badge the Platinum trim.

    looks good without the badge, but at this point, i am wondering if having it removed instead constantly replacing it is good for the clear coat and underlying paint.

    and not get into the possibility of that trim piece pulling out further and catching something and ripping it off and causing more damage.

    I agree, looks really good anyway, and why do manufacturers think people need fancy badges?

    Only thing that bugs me is that the badges and trim you pulled off is probably worth $400-500, it'd be nice if Toyota offered a badge and trim delete for -$500 off the price of the truck.

    No, they'd charge $500 more for not putting it on, because you WANT it debadged!:rolleyes:

    I noticed Mine coming off a few days after purchase. I had all four replaced under warranty and the replacements also started coming off. I went ahead and took them off myself due to them flapping in the wind. Dealer is now awaiting for replacement again. The dealer stated Toyota is looking for a solution on this problem due to this becoming more common.

    they have to replace it if it's claimed as warranty by the dealer. service advisor said they have to turn in the old parts. not sure how valid that is but his message was we cant patch we need to replace and send the defective to toyota.

    I definitely feel like the expectations that stuff doesn't fall off due to (assuming here) bad glue is warranted. I can empathize with the sense of loss that a new truck owner will have for their truck looking immaculate and working like expected. I also can empathize with not wanting to be a guinea pig.

    As someone with a background in manufacturing and now working in software at large scale, I can also empathize with not knowing how some things will really perform until they're in the wild at scale. There may be some factor you didn't control for in your testing that produces an unexpected result. Some of these errors may be wide spread and some might just be 1 in 10,000. Nobody wants to be the 1 in 10,000. Do I think this erases a history of Toyota working diligently to get the kinks out? No. I think they have at times had a good track record (1 million mile Tundras) with that and at other times (sliding floor mats causing accidents and defective airbags) had a bad track record. Do I believe that the 2022 Tundra won't beat the average mileage on a full size truck, tbd, but I'm guessing some badges and window gaskets won't figure in.

    The bar is really high that these guys are being held to. Let's say you performed the same action 10,000 times in a row. If you messed up 1x you'd have a .001 error rate. You'd probably brush off that 1 mistake as a fluke since you did the other 9,999 things the right way. Now extrapolate to producing a 50,000 thousand to a hundred thousand Tundras a year. In 2021 Toyota reportedly produced 10M light vehicles. At a 1 in 10,000 defect rate that's 10,000 defective vehicles. Is that acceptable? Probably not. Would it be exceptionally good for a defect rate? Yes. According to Lemonlist "Toyota averages just one reported lemon per 11,655,566 vehicles produced"
