Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 120,000 miles
I purchased the 2000 Toyota Tundra in July of 2010, about a year later on July 4th 2011, the front passenger wheel broke off at the ball joints lodging the wheel under the vehicle, when this happened I was going about 65mph down the interstate. Luckily I was able to safely move the truck to the shoulder without causing an accident. I had the ball joints replaced on the front of both sides to be safe along with a few other parts that were damaged in the accident. About two months after the accident the same thing happens again on the same side. The parts used to fix it the first time were factory Toyota parts. Ive read where numerous other people had the same problem out of they're 2000 Tundra but the recall does not cover this model even though the same parts are used.

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

While driving at approx. 50 mph, with no warning the right front suspension came apart. The tire folded underneath and the truck skidded to a stop. Fortunately we were on a 2 lane macadam road. There were no injuries. The truck was towed to a garage where the mechanic replaced the upper and lower ball joints right hand side, right hand drive shaft, and inner and out tie-rod ends and a new tire.
