Tundra 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,457 miles
My 2002 Toyota Tundra had the front brakes replaced 7,000 miles ago. When braking the truck shudders and shakes. I was told that the rotor is warped. The Toyota dealer says this is a problem due to me driving hard on the brakes. This is false. I am very easy on the truck. Now simultaneously the check engine light went on. The Toyota dealer says the catalytic converter needs to be replaced. The cost of the part alone is $1,000 all this after I dealt with a problem with this truck in 2005. Back then, at 58,000 miles, the engine threw a rod and the entire engine had to be replaced. Is this truck a lemon or what" I am not hard on my vehicles. I own a 1994 Honda Accord that has 250,000 miles. I expected the same from Toyota. I am very disappointed in the Toyota Tundra. Why I am having to pay for new brakes 7,000 miles after replacing the front brakes? why is the catalytic converter failing" someone needs to hold Toyota accountable for these problems. Instead Toyota wants to blame the consumer and say the consumer is at fault due the way the consumer is driving.
