2022 Toyota Tundra Problems and Top Complaints – Is Your Car A Lemon?

Engine & electrical system are among the top complaints received by the NHTSA from vehicle owners

The 2022 Toyota Tundra is meant to provide all of your trucking needs. The automaker claims it is “engineered for adventure,” but many customers are finding more excitement than they signed up for. The new Tundra appears to struggle with defective air bags, a faulty electrical system and a malfunctioning engine.

Problems with the Airbags

Without functional air bags, every drive can turn into a disaster. With the 2022 Toyota Tundra models, the air bags seem to be one of the most complained about systems.

One Edmunds review points out, “Also, there’s a SRS airbag malfunction warning that randomly comes on. I’ve been unable to make it to the dealer when it happens but plan to take it in soon.”

Notice the air bag complaint followed another one for a different system. That’s because every which way the Tundra is looked at, there seems to be something wrong. For now, Toyota doesn’t have anything to say about the air bag situation, leaving customers in the dark about what’s happening. Maybe the tagline should be something along the lines of “engineered for accidents.”

Problems with the Electrical System

With today’s lineup of vehicles, customers should have access to every top electronic feature available. While the 2022 Toyota Tundra might have great features, they don’t seem to work well.

Here’s an example from an Edmunds review. “The Infotainment system has some areas that need to improve, example before you put it into drive you need to select your profile in order to use things like navigation. If you choose to turn off Apple/Android CarPlay in constantly pops up a window that says connection failed. Extremely annoying. Remote start is setup a little goofy. When you remote start and walk up to your truck and unlock it, it turns the truck off and you need to restart it again. Toyota says this is a security feature.”

In this case, Toyota isn’t hiding problems. One communications, Service Bulletin #T-TT-0675-21 Rev, points out that there can be an error with the User Profile and its failure to load when the vehicle is started. This problem causes drivers to spend a few more minutes every day getting the truck ready to go. Instead of people being late for work because of traffic, it will now be due to inoperable Tundra systems.

Problems with the Engine

Above all, the engine must be in good working order to create that “adventure” that Toyota is talking about. Yet, the manufacturer just produced another failure.

One NHTSA complaint states, “While driving forward on freeway 70 mph vehicle rear parking collision warning came on. Immediately truck lost power and display showed reduced power because turbo/wastegate issue. Truck lost all power started shaking and trying to brake on its own.”

In addition to this problem, Toyota also released Service Bulletin #T-TT-0681-22. In this communications, the automaker talks about possible turbocharger failure. Sadly, the only way to fix this is to replace the turbocharger, which isn’t a quick repair. For now, it’s safe to say that the biggest adventures for Tundra owners are occurring in the service department of their local Toyota dealership while waiting for warranty repairs.
