Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 116,457 miles
Fortunately I was off the interstate when making a right hand turn into a convenience store...........the steering suddenly became almost impossible to turn, actually causing me to turn into the outgoing lane at the store entrance. There was no advanced warning....just no steering on turns and no brake fluid in the resevoir. The Toyota deal says the steering rack needs replacement.($1600)......and could not explain exactly where the fluid went. This was suppose to be a 300,000 mile vehicle, now stands at 116,457. Had to replace a stabilizer as well due to corrosion. I just sold my 1997 Grand Am with 224,000. And my 1988 Dodge Caravan had 244,000 before the transmition went. Toyota and reliability"??????"
