Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles
I have had multiple problems with my 2002 Tundra trd 4WD. I have had it in more than 4 times for the brakes vibrating/pulsating and looks like I will be taking it in again as they are starting to vibrate again!! reno Toyota has always done all the maintenance on it and keep trying to say it is my fault the brakes are bad and the rotors are warping. They replaced the rear axles a couple of months ago but I had to pay the $50 deductible. They also had to install a gasket on the crossover for the engine coolant as the factory never installed it. The ac doesn't get cool enough to cool the interior. Whistling noise but don't know where it is coming from...sounds like coming from side mirrors"?" I replace the wheels recently because of vibration because the wheels were warped. Always have excessive brake dust on front wheels. Transmission feels and sounds like it is slipping all the time. Rough idle after warm up. I bought it new in July 2002 and now have 69400 miles on it. Most of which are highway miles with no towing ever...no heavy hauling ever. Am too afraid to drive it off-road because of all the brake problems...Nevada=mountains=cliffs=death...I am not ready to risk my life or my grandchildren so will not even let me ride with me anywhere.
