Toyota Tundra - Problems, Statistics, and Analysis



Toyota Tundra owners have reported 4,533 problems for their cars built in the 18 model years listed in the chart below. The chart shows the number of problems reported during all service years for each model year of Toyota Tundra. The 2000 Toyota Tundra cars have the most problems reported (1,173 problems).

  Common problems of Toyota Tundra

The following chart shows the 26 most common problems for Toyota Tundra cars. The number one most common problem is related to the vehicle's structure (970 problems). The second most common problem is related to the vehicle's service brakes, hydraulic (751 problems).

  Compare Reliability Across Model Years Using PPMY Index

It would not be fair to compare the older model year Toyota Tundra to a new one in terms of the problems reported since older vehicles have been in service longer and more problems should be reported. In order to compare the reliability across Tundra model years, we use the PPMY index which is defined as the problems reported per thousand vehicles per Year. A smaller PPMY index implies a better reliability for the model year under study.

    PPMY = P / S / Y * 1000

Where P = total problems reported during the life of a Toyota Tundra model year; S = total units sold of the model year; Y = years since the debut of the model year (the age of the vehicle).

The result is shown in Table 3.

  Number of Problems Reported During the First Year

Another way to measure the reliability across the model years of Toyota Tundra is to use the number of problems reported during the vehicles' first year in service, as shown in the Table 4.
