My 2007 Tundra dual cab wasn't cheap to begin with, but then nothing is. There were several small issues that had to be dealt with under warranty. Then the radio went bad just AFTER it went out of warranty.
Then the cruise went out due to overly-short wires in the steering column. I got it fixed, but it soon went out again.
Then, I apparently hit something hard on the highway, which cracked or bent a housing on the lower front end of the engine, which damaged a wire which made my 4WD quit working. After saving several hundred dollars over the course of the WINTER, I got it fixed and paid through the nose for the privilege.
Then, my air-conditioner quit holding coolant and three different shops could not find the leak. I haven't had AC for three years now because it would cost over $1000 to replace all the components.
Last year, the solenoid needed replaced--what used to be a $50 job on older vehicles. However, because it was a Toyota, it cost $900.
It's not a desperate situation, but after 210,000 miles, the brakes are starting to get a bit choppy. The local shop was running a special on $200 brake jobs. However, because it's a Toyota, it would cost $900. I guess I'll wait a while longer.
Toyota always had a good reputation, but mine has turned out to be a lemon. Here I am in my old age with a truck that I can't afford to keep and can't afford to get rid of. Copyright 5/17/2021
