Jake from Toyota ... thanks for the information. However I have now spoken to Toyota Headquarters a couple of times and about 7 local dealers in the southern California area, and NO ONE is aware of this problem. Toyota has no service bulletins or recall notifications on this issue. I also would like official information like PaulNY is asking for, before I put down $70,000 on a new Tundra. And start traveling cross country pulling my Airstream trailer. Do you have any recommendations that folks like us can get an official statement regarding a manufacturing time period or VIN number range that is affected by this problem? That would be greatly appreciated.

They also issued a tsb on this problem because dealer mechanics are bending the connector rods in attempt to fix this issue. That’s what my buddy said they did to his new tundra.

I HAVE A DEPOSIT ON A BASE 22 TUNDRA CREWMAX 4X4 WITH A TOW PACKAGE SURPRISING WITH NO BRAKE CONTROL...
INSTALL FROM FACTORY AND INCREASE THE COST OF THE VEHICLE...150 TO 200 BUCKS ON A 44,000 DOLLAR TRUCK
IS NOT A DEAL BREAKER. THINKING OF KEEPING MY MINT '15 SR5 5.7 4X4 AND CANCEL MY RESERVATION ??? LOSS OF USE
AND LONG TIME RELIABILITY A CONCERN. HAD 07, 09,12 AND 15...NEVER A PROBLEM ALONG WITH TACOMAS, CELICAS,
TURBO SUPRAS,AND MY FIRST TOYOTA CARONA. ALL TOTAL ABOUT 20 PLUS OVER 44 YEARS. TAKING THE CAB OFF BY
DEALERSHIP WORKER? NOT MUCH CONFIDENCE WITH MONDAY MORNING OR FRIDAY AFTERNOON TECHS SAY I FORGOT,
I'M SORRY BUT GETS FIRED ANYWAY DUE TO HAVING HIS BRAIN ASLEEP.

ADVICE TO TOYOTA AT FACTORY...USE S T A I N L E S S S T E E L BOLTS SO THEY DON'T RUST. IF I CONTINUE WITH MY

I have always heard that you never buy a new model vehicle the first year they come out. I did when the audi q5 came out and regretted it. I would what till years 3 and up giving toyota time to work out all the bugs.

Can you please be more specific...meaning, after what date or vin# can we expect the new parts were implemented at the factory? Do you have a Vin# range of what 500-1000 have the issue? My truck was built on 1/26 and is due to be delivered 2/15-2/21. Last 8: NX010137. Thank you for any further insight you can provide.
Good and perfect question PaulNY

Back when Toyota's were MADE IN JAPAN we didnt have these problems. Thats why the 4Runner is flawless. Now ALL gear hunting Tacoma's are made in Mexico. Think i will stick with my 5.7

I work at a Toyota engine plant and I personally build and install these turbos and the problem is some of the parts that came to our factory were defective and we didn’t catch it until it we had already sent out a few engines, but the problem has been fixed and will not be a problem in the future. Only about 500-1000 might have the issue but now not at all
I recently ordered 2022 Tundra twin turbocharged. I haven’t received the truck yet but it should arrive in a few weeks. Is the waste gate issue still a problem ?

Yes it is but I'm sure that they will get a handle on this issue. I agree with fotza above, I've heard that you never buy a new model vehicle until they've been out for 2-3 years. Look at all the issues/recalls on the 2016 & up Tacoma.

Toyota engine techs have been sent nationwide to fix all the engines that have had any problems and the issue has been resolved
Not mine. I have a 2022 Tundra 1794 edition 4x4 Crewmax purchased on 2-16-2022. The issue should not have happen to me, but it did a couple days later. On the 19th of February my truck has the turbo wastegate problem and parts were ordered. My truck still sits at my dealership. As of today the 30th of March it is 40 days. Waiting for one more part a turbo gasket. The ETA becomes another ETA and so on. Pretty soon will be 2 months and not fixed yet.

Yes, this issue is still occurring. My vehicle up in Canada had the first notification that the brake system failure and engine light appeared. After a few back and forth visits to the dealer, it was then determined that it is the wastegate issue. I have it in the shop ETA for new parts is currently 2 weeks, so it puts this entire case at close to 1.5months for it to be fixed.

The problem is much more widespread then a few engines and it's still happening a year model later
