Toyota Tundra - Problems, Statistics, and Analysis

Toyota Tundra owners have reported a total of 4,799 problems for their cars built in the 18 model years listed in the chart below. The chart shows the number of problems reported across all service years for each given model year of the Toyota Tundra. The 2000 Toyota Tundra cars have the most problems reported (1,196 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 (1,051 problems). The second most common problem is related to the vehicle's service brakes, hydraulic (772 problems).

  Compare Reliability Across Model Years Using PPMY Index

It would not be fair to compare the Toyota Tundra of an older model year to newer model years since older vehicles have been in service longer and thus are expected to have more problems. 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 indicates greater reliability of the given model year cars.

    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 results are shown in Table 3.

  Number of Problems Reported During the First Year

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