The problems I have with my truck is that it is old and outdated. It also costs a lot to fill up with gas because it is a truck which I wouldn't mind if I loved it but I do not absolutely love it. I do enjoy that it is a truck because I love driving a truck and it always gets me from point A to B. Also even though it is old it is still a reliable vehicle.

it has a V8. my truck is 16 years old and has some appearance of her years, but she will still pass you on the hill. the couple of dents and scratches only enhance my attitude of "go ahead, hit me..." i feel safe in my truck. i guess that's two things. most important: she has a V8

this truck has never let me down - the dealership has let me down, but this truck hasn't. she needed some love recently and there was a period of time we were thinking about trading her in, but then we thought better of it. over 200,000 miles and she is still a great truck. i hope to have many more rides in my truck

We have a v8 engine 2002 Toyota tundra. It runs fantastic with regular maintenance. It is a comfortable ride for long road trips. It is dependable when towing a boat. It was built strong to haul heavy loads. Although the model that we have, has a short cab, it still can haul furniture or doors stacked high.

Air Bags Apr 11, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 11, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V133000
Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2002 through 2004 Toyota Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Sequoia, Tundra, Lexus SC, and Pontiac Vibe vehicles to address a safety defect in the passenger side frontal air bag which may produce excessive internal pressure causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment of the air bag. This recall addresses both the passenger side frontal air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. A replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the passenger side frontal air bag.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the passenger seat occupant or other occupants.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners of affected Toyota and Lexus vehicles and General Motors will notify owners of affected Pontiac Vibe vehicles. Toyota, Lexus, and GM dealers will inspect vehicles, and where a defective air bag inflator is identified, the inflator will be replaced, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a notification schedule. Toyota and Lexus owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331. Pontiac Vibe owners may contact GM at 1-800-521-7300.
