20 problems related to vehicle speed control have been reported for the 2007 Toyota Tundra.
Toyota replaced my accelerator pedal back when they had cars that would unintentionally accelerate. Nothing had been proven wrong with my pedal, there were no symptoms. However, Tundra was doing a nationwide recall in the name of safety concerns. When the car was returned to me, the pedal was just floppy and sensitive as could be. The car would just launch itself forward. Hitting bumps on the road caused the car to accelerate. This recall was done at 28k miles. Now at 65k miles, with my family in the car. I was at a stop light and went to accelerate. There was no friction or pedal feel whatsoever, the car accelerated and thank god due to rain, instead of being propelled, I skid forward about a foot. There was a massive amount of sensitivity and pedal feel was gone. ***this on the supposed "fixed" pedal. I took the car to Toyota dealership in gainesville, gatorland Toyota where the vehicle was purchased. They tested the car and because they couldn't reproduce the problem, they stated they would do nothing about it. Not even replace the pedal again. There are plenty of Toyota owners on the internet complaining that things are still wrong with the accelerator pedals and nothing is being done about it. Toyota has vehicles on the road that could potentially launch themselves and they are doing nothing about it. Toyota case number: 1409261370.
I started my truck up yesterday just randomly to go to the store. As soon as I started it a bunch of warning lights went off. The check engine light was on, the 4wd lo light was blinking, the vsc off light was blinking, and the traction control light was on. I then turned the vehicle off and let it sit for a few minutes. I turned the truck back on and the same warning lights were still on. I then pulled out of my driveway to go to a friends house who has a little computer that tells you what errors are going off when your check engine light is on like an autobody. As I pulled onto the main road and pressed on the accelerator the truck would barely go. The engine sounded like it usually does but the truck would hardly accelerate. When I finally got to my friends house he plugged the computer in and it gave me an error code of p2440. Once I looked more into it I found that it was the air induction pump that was malfunctioning. Further research online I found thousands of people have had the same problem with Tundra's with mileage between 40k and 60k. My biggest concern is why the vehicle is not accelerating like it supposed to. Many other people have the same concern. That is a huge safety hazard to me. What would happen if that would just all of a sudden shut my engine down to the slow crawl that it is doing if I am on a turnpike in heavy traffic. I would believe that there would definitely be an accident which I am sure it has happened before. I am just wondering if there is anything that can be done or maybe something that has already been done. Like a recall that I am not aware of.
The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. The contact was stopped at a traffic stop when the vehicle became resistant to acceleration attempts. The vsc light illuminated on the instrument panel and the contact shut the engine off. He then restarted the vehicle and performed a self diagnostic. The failure codes indicated that the secondary air injection system had failed. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 67,000.
Truck wouldn't accelerate when pulling out in traffic. Will not reach safe speed for freeway commute.
After the dealer completed the accelerator recall, my truck now has a slight stall when taking off and if there is any roughness in driving surface, the truck does this lurching/acceleration at each bump. It's almost like when they reprogrammed the accelerator, they made it too sensitive. I wasn't having a problem with the pedal prior to their "fix" but they forced me to have the "repair" done.
Water in the air induction pumps causing engine to shut down and have no power at speed. Engine lights come on and truck is disabled or hobbled with low speed only. This has been documented as a common problem with Tundra 2007-2008 owners.
The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. He stated that on may 5, 2010, while driving at 70 mph the vehicle would not stop and he had to swerve to prevent crashing into the vehicle in front. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership and was tested but the failure could not be duplicated. The failure mileage was approximately 102,000. The current mileage was approximately 108,000.
Left home to go to work. Interstate is approximately 1/2 mile from house. While attempting to merge on freeway several dash warning lights appeared on my 2007 Toyota Tundra. Truck stopped accelerating on the merge and I was almost rear ended by an eighteen wheeler. Took my Tundra to the dealer service department and was told I had an issue with my emission air induction pumps. Service tech told me that the main computer put my truck into a "limp" mode thus preventing me to complete the acceleration. He also stated that he couldn't give me a reason why Toyota has programmed the computer to fail into limp mode when the problem would not hurt the truck during normal acceleration. After researching the web, I discovered many 2007 to 2010 Toyota Tundra owners have experienced the same issue. Restricting a vehicle to perform up to standards puts the driver in a very dangerous situation. Especially when the "limp" mode has no good reason other than to get the owner into the dealer service department!.
I own a 2007 Toyota Tundra and had the gas pedal fixed last week under the recall. Since the repair my gas pedal is super sensitive to pressure. The friction to push the pedal down is considerably less and causes the truck to lunge as I accelerate unevenly. It is most noticeable on a bumpy road when the pressure from my foot is impossible to maintain at an even pressure. I contacted the dealer and was told that thousands have been repaired and no one has ever complained about this. I have spent the last several hours searching the internet for similar stories and found a couple. In my opinion this is more serious than before the so called fix. I want this fixed and do not seem to be getting anywhere until more people come forward.
No official notification of pedal failure on my affective 2007 Toyota Tundra. I thought that companies were required by law to supply official notification sent to you for a safety recall. I also had another recall for driveshaft separation that this VIN was also included, but was told by local dealer that it wasn't.
I had my 2007 Tundra into texas Toyota for warranty work. They installed the "recall" fix. ( I never had any trouble before the "recall fix") since the "fix," I have had 1 acceleration when I took my foot off the accelerator, and many short burst while I was driving.
I took my 2007 Tundra for a modification of the pedal to Toyota. On the date below. I am concern about the way the pedal is working. Every time the truck bounces or hits a bump, my truck accelerates, because of the sensitivity of the pedal. It did not do that before. I am in the process of taking it back. As soon as I can take some time off of work again. I just thought you might want to know how the modification is working on my Tundra. Thank you for your time.
The contact owns 2007 Toyota Tundra. He attempted to stop the vehicle while driving 5 mph into traffic when the vehicle lunged forward. He was able to avoid a collision by shifting into neutral gear while applying pressure to the brake pedal. The dealer was unable to recreate the failure and stated that nothing was wrong with the vehicle. He also stated he is afraid to drive to vehicle. The failure and the current mileages were 16,000. Updated 3/8/10 the consumer stated he had just stopped at a light with his foot on the brake and all of a sudden the vehicle accelerated. The consumer was able to place the gear in neutral to avoid a collision. Updated 06/04/10.
2007 Toyota Tundra involved in a rear-end collision in delaware where a 4 year old girl was killed. Investigating officer has tried unsuccessfully to get Toyota to come out and investigate whether the gas pedal was an issue as there were no skid marks and driver doesn't remember everything that happened.
07 Toyota Tundra recall - received notice in October - still no solution from Toyota.
The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. While driving approximately 35 mph on a sandy road, the accelerator pedal extended to the floor without assistance. Suddenly, the vehicle accelerated aggressively and forcefully at 70 mph. When the brake pedal was depressed, there was no response. The contact shut off the ignition while the vehicle was in operation in order to come to a complete stop. The driver inspected the vehicle and started the ignition. The vehicle resumed to normal operation. The failure occurred without warning. The vehicle was taken to two different authorized dealers for inspection, but they could not duplicate the failures. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 28,400 and current mileage was 28,800.
Have noted intermittent instances of surging acceleration from a stop, and at highway speeds under load. Occurs 5-10 times a week. Started at about 8k miles. Dealer "says" unable to duplicate. Frequency increasing as mileage increases. Received recall notice in mail last week. Went over 36,000 miles two weeks ago. Recall plus surging makes one question safety of Tundra.
The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. While idling, the vehicle suddenly began to accelerate. The contact stated that while the air conditioner was on, the rpms would suddenly increase. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership but the dealer could find nothing wrong with the vehicle. The vehicle had not been repaired at the time of the complaint. The current mileage was approximately 64,000. The failure mileage was approximately 500.
I just noticed others had complaints about this issue too on your site. I brought it to the attention of the dealer and they had no fix except to remove one or the other although the standard clip does not work well with their mudder mats. I was entering the highway from the ramp and pressed down to accelerate to move into traffic and the truck accelerated as hard and fast as it could. I found myself having to weave through traffic like I was in a nascar race. When I finally found a clear path to the shoulder I swerved onto it and shut the truck off. It would not slow down and I could not shift into neutral. I had to be going about 60 at the top of the onramp and well over 100, probably faster, when I finally was able to shut it off. I got out of the truck to take a break and calm down and upon returning to the truck I noticed that the "mudder mats" I bought from a Toyota site slipped forward enough to wedge itself under the gas pedal. I stay aware of the position of the mat more frequently now and keep it slid back but there is no restraint for it that will go thru both the floor liner that protects more of the floor area and the mudder mat on top of it. I bought both at the Tundra parts site. I hope that there will be some warning for others made big and dramatic enough to bring attention to this problem to avoid having this happen to another. I was very lucky to have survived this.
My 2007 Toyota Tundra hesitates when you are stopped at a light making a turn or slowly rolling around a corner and making a sharp turn. No matter how much gas is given it retards it self and then lurch once the wheels start to straiten up. I was told it is a computer issue due to the antislip features. But it is gross over correction at best. And dangerous for sure.
