    Biggest complaints I'd say would be lack of stock underseat storage in the CM, the stupid oil filter system that makes oil changes unnecessarily difficult compared to any other vehicle I've ever had, and that it locks out my ability to select a folder to play MP3s from on the USB stick I have plugged in while in motion, must be stopped.

    Other than that, the most annoying thing is that if something ever happens to my truck, I can't buy a new replacement just like it. :(

    While the time keeping abilities seem fine on my truck, the radio reception is the worst of any vehicle I've ever owned! This is my number one complaint and the only one that truely annoys me.

    X2. Ever notice that when you apply the brake it somehow effects the radio reception? Weird

    One thing that drives me nuts in my truck and pretty much every vehicle is how dirt and stuff gets stuck between the creases of plastic interior parts. And of course mpg.

    My drivers seat in my 21 SR5 still makes that annoying popping noise (creaking now that it's cold in Fl). I am going to try getting it addressed one last time at the dealer for its 15K service. Tired of hearing its the lumbar system.

    The Bluetooth interface between my phone and the truck stereo makes be want to smash both devices with a sledgehammer. Specifically in the area of ''auto play". Apps I CLOSED when I got out of bed in the morning will start playing on the stereo the moment I turn the key. Yes, while they are still closed! Apps I have paused will resume playing after I get a phone call, or after I do anything voice-related with any other app. Sometimes apps resume playing just because they feel like it.

    Toyota says it's Apple's fault. Apple says it's Toyota's fault. There is no setting on either device to make it stop.

    I'd buy a new stereo in a heartbeat if I knew for sure it was this stereo's fault.

    Minor annoyance, and it's a design thing: the steering wheel seems to be seated too far towards the dash. I wish Toyota had it a bit more forward. Mine is a lowly SR5, so no power tilt/telescopic function, but even at 6'6'' tall I feel like I'm reaching a mile when the seat is comfortably back.

    Lately I've been sliding the seat a bit forward for a more comfortable reach.

    So there is no latch under the column allowing for wheel adjustment?

    I have a manual 'tilt' latch, but the overall wheel needs to be about 1.5-2'' inches closer.
    I've had many cars and trucks in my time, and this tundra just feels odd with the wheel so close to the dash.

    So, it won't move in and out far enough?

    There is no 'in or out' adjustment, it's a set position.

    You didn't say the year model of your Tundra. Mine is a 2015 CM SR5. On my truck, the tilt lock lever under the steering column also releases the telescoping column. Try releasing the tilt lock and pulling the steering wheel toward you before you relocate the column again.
    I hope this makes your truck more comfortable for you. At your height the seat jackers may make a positive difference as well.

    Thanks guys, you gave me some hope, but no go. Just went and rechecked and my '20 SR5 has the 'tilt' function, but the wheel doesn't telescope in and out. Might be due to my 'bench seat' equipped model and not the SR5 upgrade package which includes the center console shift.
