Introduced in 2007, this generation of the Tundra was bulked up to take on Detroit's full-sized workhorses. Growing dramatically in size, but losing much of the refinement of the previous model, the Tundra, once considered the Camry of pickups -- fully-modern and easy to live with -- became one of the least refined and most dated. Shortcomings abound.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for about 329,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2020 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2007 Toyota Tundra owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Brakes

Antilock system (ABS), parking brake, master cylinder, calipers, rotors, pulsation or vibration, squeaking, brake failure or wear.

What Owners Say

Antilock system (ABS)

"Normal wear and tear, for a 2007 Tundra. The brake pads had NEVER been replaced!!"

Anonymous, DE (2007 Toyota Tundra Base 5.7-L V8)

"As is mentioned in the owner's manual, the anti-lock brakes increase stopping distance in the snow. I have slid through intersections where I know I would not have with out anti-locks."

Doug P., VT (2007 Toyota Tundra Limited 5.7-L V8)

"Catastrophic brake failure. With only 62K miles, the ABS Controller failed locking up all four wheels almost causing an accident. After towing to the dealer, I was faced with a $3700 repair bill. Only reason given for the brake failure was age. Reported to the NTSB."

Wade R., AZ (2007 Toyota Tundra Limited 5.7-L V8)

"ABS actuator had to be replaced on a vehicle with only 76,000 miles at a cost of $2,700. This is very unusual. We are very disappointed"

Anonymous, FL (2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 5.7-L V8)

"Warning light for both ABS and stability control was illuminated while driving on a long trip a few days ago while pulling a trailer. It was raining at the time. We laid over for the night and when we started up the truck the next morning the dash warning lights had reset. I assume that a wheel sensor may be failing, however as of now the problem has not returned"

Duncan C., TX (2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 5.7-L V8)

"The right rear speed sensor failed causing the following systems to not work. Antilock brakes/4 wheel drive/automatic skid control. Vehicle had 14,000 miles on it. Repair cost $835. Toyota's are way over rated"

Calipers

"right rear brake would not disengage"

J W., AR (2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 5.7-L V8)
Master cylinder

"The actual fault was with a catastrophic failure of the brake actuator (some call it a master cylinder). Brakes kept locking up almost causing an accident. Also caused all four brake rotors and pads to overheat requiring replacement. Over $4000 dollars to replace (not covered by any warranty). With only 66K miles on the truck, this failure is inexcusable."

Wade R., AZ (2007 Toyota Tundra Limited 5.7-L V8)

Paul S., (2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 5.7-L V8)

"Had to be replaced at 50000 miles. My last two vehicles went over 90000 miles before needing replacement. May be partially my fault as the vehicle is parked outside, letting the rotors rust, thus causing the brakes to wear quicker."

"The joint mechanism from front cable to spilt back cables was rusted to point of not able to release cables properly causing overheated emergency brake drum and bad vibration and early rear caliper failure from heat."

"poor breaking all around. Rotors warp easily"

Anonymous, TN (2007 Toyota Tundra Limited 5.7-L V8)

"I have replaced the front rotor 4 times since new. Could not find a cause at first. My regular mechanic discovered that the airspace between the outer and inner rotors was clogged with dirt and mud. We surmised that this has caused brake rotor overheating and warped rotors!! I drive on rural roads, and one would think that Toyota would assume that the rotors would get clogged if the rotors were not shielded in some way from mud and dirt. Maybe they should talk to someone who actually uses these trucks in 4WD conditions!!!"

And the service mgr. and I began to discuss the problem very early on. The wheels were replaced in about year 3 or 4 Toyota "Good will" and then the bed about 4 years ago. We then began discussing the potential for a frame recall which eventually came, and mine required,last summer by Toyota as part of a gov't mandated recall."

"I must make a clarification before I begin. The problem I have and had began about four years ago. Nothing in the survey allowed for that information. Now. A large circular spot appeared in the center of the roof of the vehicle. It later turned into a large rust spot, which later spread all over the roof and a few smaller areas on other parts of the vehicle. The dealership advised that there was nothing they could or would do about it. In fact I was told it would cost me at least $5,000 to repair the roof."

Robert F., GA (2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 5.7-L V8)

"frame is severely rusted and flaking. Toyota recall was completed which was simply powerblasting the frame and applying undercoating on frame only, leaving rust on frame body contact points. Frame replacement only occurs after the frame has a complete perforation. There is no consideration given to the fact the frame is weakened by having sheets of rust flaking off. by the time you actually experience a perforation it is too late."

"The starter went out in late January or February of 2020 with no warning. I wasn't sure what the issue was because starter problems on previous vehicles tended to give some idea they were having problems. I had just been to my dealership for an oil change and thought maybe they had somehow discharged the battery or something. My daughter has a friend that is a Toyota mechanic. He looked at it and was able to order and replace the starter."
