    Angry 2007 6 speed transmission failures

    My new 07 tundra 5.7 just ate the transmission with less than 5000 miles on the vehicle. My truck is sitting at the dealer, while Toyota scratches its head. Anyone else hear of this or experience this? I didn't abuse or offroad my vehicle. It just happened while I was driving on the freeway without warning. The tranny started shifting all over the place, all the dash lights started going off like wildfire, and then I couldn't get it out of 4th. Toyota has now told me the tranny is bad and needs to be replaced. the trannys are backordered and they want to see my tranny to see what the deal is. they also said I am the sixth 5.7 this has happened to in June.

    Do you know when and where your Tundra was built? That really sucks. Do and search and you will see you are not alone. It's only a handful but it must be a pain not to have your truck. Hopefully they will set you up with a platimun extended warranty for your troubles....and a Tundra loner while you wait.

    On a side note...I was on the phone with Toyota Finacial today.....great customer service. No long wait and I got to speak with a real live human...and not a guy named Dave from India.

    Anyways...good luck with the tranny and keep us posted.

    Thanks for the information. I never thought to look for the place of build or build date, but now I am curious. Is there a specific plant that is building trucks with this problem? I need to get some more items out of my truck tomorrow, so I will check the sticker in the door frame for this information. Is the lemon law really in effect if they have it more than 30 days. By the way, it does suck not having my truck. I am really pissed at toyota right now, especially because they stuck me in a crappy rental Ford, and didn't offer a toyota loaner.

    .

    My 2007 5.7L is a month old today.

    Transmission went out at 500 miles (1st week)... My dealer put a new one in and the truck is doing fine and I just passed the 800 mile mark.

    The dealer (and SET) says .. I WAS THE FIRST ... lol

    We .. (THOSE WITH TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENTS) .. need to push TMCA in CA to give us the same 100K miles warranties that were given to the .. "5.7L Blown Crank" owners.

    In my book ... replacing a transmission is just as big of a deal as replacing a transmission. ..... Both are about the same price too. ..... My dealer told me that replacing a 6 speed was about $7,000.00.

    I still love my truck and it seems to be doing ok now ... it just bugs me to see another transmission problem ... when SET and US Toyota (TMCA) in CA acts like I am the only one.

    SOS


    PS .. I had a free loaner choice of a 2007 Tundra or a loaded 2007 Camry.
    My dealer was super ... it was TMCA (Toyota Motor Co. America) in CA that was dragging their feet.

    PPS .. Mine came from San Antonio, Tx ... but I do not know the "Build Date".

    Unfortunetly you must have gotten one of the factory defects, which happens with every brand but can be a terrible and frustrating experience. As long as the dealer takes care of you though it should be alright.

    Oh no they didn't!!...That would seriously piss me off. I am usually a very reasonable consumer who doesn't like to complain but that is just not cool. A Ford for God's sake? That is jast a slap in the face in my book. If it were me the service manager would hearing from the Regional Manager before lunchtime tomorrow! Sorry for the rant but didn't they at least have a demo Toyota to loan you? I am sure the sales manager is driving home a nice shiny new demo Toyota tonight. I am sure if you call the Customer Experience Center and do some esplainin' of your situation you will get a quick response.

    I banged off any angry email with the rental ford information today. TMC said they will get back to me. My Toyota dealer has not offered any concessions or even acted like they cared. I will never buy another vehicle from them. I probably wouldn't even be posting right now, if they had made an effort to handle this situation in an effort to help me out.

    Uh...damn dude...you have some serious anger management issues.

    I happen to own a 2002 Ford Ranger with 90k mailes with not one problem. I do not hate Ford products at all. I love my little Ranger. I just think if you spend 35k+ on a brand new Tundra and your tranny takes a dump, your dealer should bend over backwards to make you happy unless he wants to hurt his rep.

    It always cracks me up how people are so brave and lippy on the internet...I doubt if we met in real life you would talk to me or any other TS forum member like that. Grow up and stop your hatin'.

    Peace

    Whoa,
    take a xanax dude, I am not a Ford hater, my point is, they should have put me in a nice loaner car, not some bare-bone basic Taurus that is really a crappy car to drive, and is hard to get in and out of (I'm 6'3"). A nicely equipped tundra or Camry would have been nice. I have owned chevys and Fords with hardly any complaints. I am not committed to Toyota, especially now that their truck left me hanging. I can't speak for the other toyota owners, but I'm not hater of any brand.

    bigdave,

    I do understand your frustration. I was upset when my transmission went out too. But try to be cool and work with your dealer. hopefully, they are trying to help you.

    To answer your question ----> First, warning lights came on, then shifting and slipping problems with some rumbling too. ....... This all happened at once (within 20 miles) and at about 500 total miles.

    I know that you are upset ... but try to be cool and work with the dealer. ... I will have to say this ... Atlanta Toyota (all the folks that I worked with there ... were super). I got to know the tech who worked on it and he drove it home (after he installed the new tranny) to make sure it was ok.

    I was very upset when the trans failed ... but what can I do ????

    Just take it back and have it replaced.

    And I did tell the dealer .. "No Door Dings" please ... those things make me crazy ... lol ...

    Now .. once you get the Tundra back and the transmission is ok. We all need to band together and request a 100K warranty from TMCA ... like the warranty that was given to the owners with the engine replacements.

    Good luck and try to stay focused and cool,

    SOS

    Why channel the anger towards the dealership? As far as they are concerned, you're just another mark. They will treat you real nice until you sign that contract and then they are done with you. They don't care about how you feel towards Toyota or Ford, they just want your money.

    I'd be taking it up with Toyota since it is their product that has put you in this position.

    I had my transmission replaced back in March, see my post here:

    http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forum...ssion-problem/

    My dealer did a good job taking care of me, they put me in a loaner double cab 4.7 Tundra. I didn't have any dash lights or anything come on, it was just shuddering for a few seconds when the TQ unlocked. Hope you get your truck back soon bigdave, mine took two weeks to get back and it was the longest two weeks of my life.
