Toyota Tundra owners have reported 6 problems related to transmission slip out of gear (under the power train category).
Gear shift on steering wheel column became loose and it became very difficult to place truck into park. It started gradually until the play in the shifter was so bad that I could no longer put it into drive, reverse or neutral without the shifter handle hitting the windshield wiper handle and causing the windshield wipers to activate and squirt cleaner onto the windshield. I was concerned that it was going to slip out of gear or into gear causing injury or death, and it became increasingly hard to put the vehicle into park. I took it to Toyota dealer and they replaced it. I have the part (a1 shaft sub-assembly / bd376 housing, steering column) and it is defective inferior metal part broken into two pieces.

1. From a stop, auto transmission slipped out of first gear. While trying to back up, reverse would not engage. 2. While driving, fourth gear did not engage. The check engine light came on, then it slipped out of third. As a result, I was almost rear ended due to the loss of power. 3. Vehicle was towed to dealership. According to them, the transmission failed and was replaced. Old unit not available.
While driving at various speed of 20-50 mph automatic transmission would intermittently jump out of drive into neutral. This condition almost causes\d consumer's vehicle to be involved in a rear end crash. The vehicle has been to the dealer on two separate occasions. The first time the dealer informed the consumer that nothing could be found. On the second occasion the dealer replaced the transmission.
