Toyota recalls 3rd gen Tundras

I've seen youtubers reporting how many 3rd gen Tundra owners are hearing strange noises in the engines. Some are even scrambling to trade them in before they failure entirely.

Now Toyota says that machining debris may have been left in the engine during assembly and they are working on a remedy.

Is the legendary Toyota quality a thing of the past now?

    Lmao, literal Hyundai tier engine manufacturing defect. My boomer ass was right all along, downgrading from the V8 was a shitty fricking idea. Toyota is dead.

        Possibly a mass-purchase of faulty tooling?

    I wonder if DA will ever understand how recalls actually work
    People get so sensational
    >Toyota recalled a car they're fricking COOKED bro it's game fricking over bro
    >recall affects 0.5% of vehicles produced in a single year and maybe 1% of recalled vehicles actually need work and aren't just going to be inspected

      They are recalling all 22-23 tundras because they are spinning bearings.
      The only reason this isn't a disaster is because nobody uses Toyota trucks seriously.

        Toyota trucks are practically the #1 military vehicle in the middle east and africa warring countries

          How old are those trucks? Also most of those are 1/4 ton small diesels. They won't buy any new 3/4 ton truck frame made in America.

            No the aren't. They're heavy sprung LC70 series which is 3/4 ton equivalent circa 1980s. A modern 3/4 ton truck will absolutely shit all over any LC made in terms of durability.

            The little shitbox pickups you see are increasingly coming from China though the Hilux still has the brand image.

    Toyota should have put the BMW B58 in those. Would be more reliable and have more power.

    The car industry has known for awhile toyotas are garbage but what's more alarming than the china-tier quality in their cars is that they will do everything they can to falsify data, toyota is the epitome of the laughing no refunds philosophy

          Last week this "totally not hyundai bot" was singing the same hyundai praises while saying nearly identical crap about german cars instead of toyota. The theme seems to be the lie about a hyundai being okay. Or maybe this "totally real person" can't tell the difference between bmw and toyota. Your call.

    Toyota is going through the classic suffering from success. more of their cars are being sold than ever before, which is fricking up their production and quality. its hard to do the toyota way when they have to make millions of vehicles that cant just all be checked by factory workers

      More like they were used to making simple NA anemic engines, waited too long to innovate and now they can't even get a basic turbo engine right.

        It's something specific to this engine
        Their turbo 4 doesn't have any major teething troubles

        they have been completely resistant to turbo-ing for everything but the sports cars and it shows. these turbo i4's are a fricking shitty idea not just for toyota but for everyone, and it is only being done due to moronic regulations. hopefully they will just go to having a NA engine/hybrid instead.

    You know why those don't have tow hooks?
    It's because the entire front end is made of recycled beer cans and pop bottles. You could bolt some on but if you used them it would tear all that shit off of there like a zipper.

    The moment they went 0w-20 on their engines.

    • 2 weeks ago

      They went to 0w20 in everything since 2007-08 and were still reliable

      I think it's just a isolated incident the turbo 4 cylinder thats in the Tacomas is actually pretty decent so far and the hybrid cars are excellent

        Modern engines require 95-98RON for combustion and power per cylinder. All of those engines will run hot by shrinking the overall block size. Add a turbo and you will see that the engine will run hotter. The "modern" normal answer is an engine gets as hot as 185-220°f as normal operation temperature. Back then anything hitting 200°f was near overheating for iron blocks and parts material that take heat better than aluminum. And now Toyota says 200°f is "the best engine temperature" for "the best miles per gallon". That thinner oil only get only +1% in engine efficiency per 10 value.
        Lubrication viscosity for engine efficiency is the type of thinking only relevant in F1 Racing, or the motorsport that needs an engine rebuild every race.
        If the engine don't get any cooler than realistically the thinner oil will lose it's viscosity at upper temperatures. Cooked oil don't lubricate. Most mechanical problems inside the engine begins with the oil.

        It's also known Toyota now voids warranty for motorsport related powertrain failures.
        The Honda K20C in the Type R uses 0w-20 overheats on the track. It's not just a brand issue. Oil thinness a trend that will decrease lifespans of engines that need to work.

          The only problem with your theory is that the failures for this specific engine are happening in the Middle East despite higher oil viscosities to avoid that failure + the motors impacted being made in Japan in Lexus LX trucks

          I wish they would just use 0w30 in everything, literally the perfect year round balance and protection for almost any modern car.
