Bought a used 2016 Tundra, unaware of the massive problem they have with their intergrated brake controller, i feel they need to do something about this or reimburse the buyer for buying a aftermarket one to replace the factory unit. Its a very unsafe problem when pulling a trailer, I love the truck otherwise but this issue needs fixed.

Under acceleration the truck hesitates during shifting. Took to dealership and they can’t find anything however it continues intermittently. During speeds on highway it does the same.

Summary of Complaint

HEADLIGHTS, TAILLIGHTS, AND DASHLIGHTS ALL GO OFF WHEN USING THE TURN SIGNAL. THIS HAS HAPPENED HALF A DOZEN TIMES AT NIGHT WHEN THE TEMPERATURE IS IN THE 30'S, BOTH WHEN TURNING ON NARROW UNLIT RURAL ROADS, AND ON THE INTERSTATE AT 75MPH WHEN CHANGING LANES. IT IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE 1794 EDITION OF THE TUNDRA WITH THE AUTOMATIC HEADLIGHTS. YOU CAN FIND DOZENS OF OTHER TUNDRA OWNERS WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS PROBLEM, INCLUDING A VIDEO ON THE TUNDRA.COM WEBSITE. SEE LINK BELOW: HTTPS://WWW.TUNDRAS.COM/THREADS/AUTO-HEADLIGHTS-SHUT-OFF-WITH-TURN-SIGNAL.22968/ THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAS HAPPEND TO ME, AND IT IS SCARY DANGEROUS. I REPORTED THIS TO NHTSA BACK IN DECEMBER, AND TOYOTA HAS YET TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THEY HAVE NOT EVEN ISSUED A SERVICE BULLETIN. PLEASE GET THEM TO FIX THIS! EVEN MY TOYOTA SERVICE AGREEMENT WON'T FIX MY TUNDRA, BECAUSE THE DEALER CAN'T REPLICATE THE PROBLEM (IT'S NOT COLD, AND THEY CLOSE AT 6 WHEN IT'S NOT DARK!), AND THERE IS NO SERVICE BULLETIN OR ANYTHING FROM TOYOTA ACKNOWLEDGING THIS IS EVEN A PROBLEM. I'M BEGGING YOU, AT LEAST GET TOYOTA TO ACKNOWLEDGE THERE IS A PROBEM AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO FIX IT!!

Summary of Complaint

HEADLIGHTS TURN OFF INTERMITTENTLY WHEN THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL IS USED AND THE HEADLIGHTS SWITCH IS IN AUTO MORE. DEALERSHIP CAN'T/WON'T REPLICATE THE ISSUE SO THEY WILL NOT TROUBLESHOOT FURTHER. THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT A LOT OF PLATINUM AND 1794 EDITION TOYOTA TUNDRAS ARE HAVING AND IT IS BEING IGNORED BY TOYOTA; HTTPS://WWW.TUNDRAS.COM/THREADS/AUTO-HEADLIGHTS-SHUT-OFF-WITH-TURN-SIGNAL.22968/ HTTPS://WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/WATCH?V=2TZRPLQ9WP4 I'VE HAD IT INTO THE DEALERSHIP TO CHECK AND THEY SAY THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO. PICKUP ONLY HAS ABOUT 26K MILES ON IT. FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED WAS ON A FREEWAY CLOVERLEAF IN THE RAIN AND LUCKILY THERE WERE STREET LIGHTS BECAUSE I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A MERGE. OTHER TIMES IT HAS BEEN SIGNALING TO TURN LEFT AND ENTERING THE CENTER TURN LANE ON MULTI-LANE ROADS. ALWAYS HAPPENS WHILE IT IS DARK OUTSIDE BECAUSE THAT'S WHEN THE HEADLIGHTS ARE IN AUTO WHICH MAKES IT MORE DANGEROUS.

Summary of Complaint

THE FACTORY SUPPLIED OEM BRAKE CONTROLLER DOES NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY, AND IS A SIGNIFICANT SAFETY ISSUE. THE CURRENT DESIGN OR SOFTWARE IS TOO CONSERVATIVE, AND DOES NOT PROVIDE SUFFICIENT POWER TO TRAILERS WITH ELECTRIC BRAKES. I HAVE TOWED MY NEW TRAILER WITH NEW BRAKES SEVERAL TIMES, AND THE RESULT IS CONSISTENT. WITH THE BRAKE CONTROLLER SET AT FULL POWER, THE ACTUAL TRAILER BRAKING IS MINIMAL, THEREFORE FORCING THE VEHICLE TO PROVIDE SOME OF THE BRAKING FORCE. THIS WORKS IN CONTROLLED SITUATIONS ON LEVEL GROUND. BUT, IN THE MOUNTAINS OR EMERGENCY STOPPING, THIS REPRESENTS A SAFETY ISSUE WHERE I DO NOT FEEL THAT THE VEHICLE AND TRAILER WILL BE SAFELY STOPPED WITHOUT INCIDENT. A FRIEND OF MINE HAS THE EXACT SAME VEHICLE WITH THE EXACT SAME ISSUE. A SIMPLE INTERNET SEARCH WILL REVEAL HUNDREDS OF SIMILAR COMPLAINTS. THIS ISSUE STARTED WITH THE 2015 MODEL YEAR. I'M CONCERNED THAT TOYOTA IS CONTINUING TO IGNORE THIS ISSUE DUE TO LEGAL LIABILITY REGARDING ACCIDENTS THAT ALREADY OCCURRED DUE TO THIS ENGINEERING FLAW. IT IS GOING ON 3 YEARS NOW WITHOUT A FIX. TOYOTA DID ISSUE A SOFTWARE UPGRADE LAST YEAR WHICH SHOULD HAVE FIXED THIS ISSUE. I HAD THE UPGRADE DONE, AND IT WAS ALMOST IMPERCEPTIBLE AS TO THE DIFFERENCE. IT WAS TOO CONSERVATIVE AND STILL DOES NOT PROVIDE ENOUGH POWER, AS COMPARED TO ANY BRAKE CONTROLLER ON THE MARKET. MOST OWNERS HAVE GIVEN UP AND INSTALLED AFTERMARKET BRAKE CONTROLLERS LIKE THE TEKONSHA PRODIGY P3 MODEL. I BELIEVE THAT THE PROGRAMMING SHOULD BE FIXED SO THAT THE FACTORY CONTROLLER CAN BE USED SAFELY.

THE VEHICLE CONTINUES TO HAVE PROBLEMS. SEE THE ATTACHED LIST OF DAMAGES, WHICH WERE PROVIDED TO THE DEALERSHIP ON 1/15/18. WHEN I DROPPED IT OFF I INDICATED THE VEHICLE WAS MALFUNCTIONING AGAIN WITHOUT THE CRUISE CONTROL ENGAGED. THE DEALERSHIP CALLED TODAY AND VERY RUDELY STATED THEY COULD NOT RECREATE THE PROBLEM AND WILL NOT FIX THE VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE IS UNSAFE TO DRIVE BECAUSE OF SOME OF THE ISSUES. WHEN I ASKED TO SPEAK TO THE CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER, THE RECEPTIONIST REFUSED AND SAID THEY WILL NOT FIX MY VEHICLE.

Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED A NEW TRAILER TO PICK UP MY NEW TRACTOR. I TESTED THE TRAILER BRAKES KNOWING I WAS PULLING A LARGE LOAD AND DIDN'T WANT AN ACCIDENT. THE BRAKES APPEARED TO APPLY BUT DUE TO IT NOT BEING LOADED WHEN TESTING I HAD IT SET TO 5(OUT OF 10). WHILE PULLING IT BACK HOME ON THE INTERSTATE TOWING MY TRACTOR BEHIND ME THERE WAS TRAFFIC STOPPING AHEAD. I ALWAYS DRIVE IN THE RIGHT LANE TO NOT SLOW OTHERS...THANK GOD I DID. I HAD TO DRIVE OFF THE ROAD ONTO THE SHOULDER TO MISS HITTING OR DRIVING OVER CARS AHEAD OF ME! THE BRAKES TURNED UP TO 10 DID NOTHING TO EVEN SLOW ME DOWN. I WAS TOWING 4 TONS AND 3 TONS FOR THE TRUCK TOTALING 7 TONS, SOMEONE WOULD'VE BEEN KILLED! TOYOTA NEEDS TO FIX THESE TRAILER BRAKES! I CAN'T TOW MY TRACTOR ANYWHERE FOR WORK DUE TO THE BRAKES BEING UNSAFE!
