Looking at Tundra’s & keeping finding Cam Tower leaks
I am currently looking at Tundra’s and looking to trade my 2016 Toyota 4Runner. So far I have not had great luck. I have looked at 3 and all 3 had the cam tower leak. First one was a 2012 DC Rock Warrior with 62,000 miles. Second one was a 2013 DC With 65,000 miles. Third one was a 2011 DC Rock Warrior with 78,000 miles. Talk about a let down. I have my heart set on nothing but a Tundra but this is aggravating me and I don’t even own one yet. Is this really that common of an occurrence? Seriously about to go to car lots after hours and just start checking as many used Tundra’s as I can to see how many I can find that have it. I am willing to bet there is a lot of people that have it but don’t even know it because it’s not leaking bad enough yet to drip onto the ground. All 3 that I looked at were dry underneath but once you checked from the side (behind the wheel) you could see it leaking.
One thing to note, the one I just looked at today was leaking the least amount out of all 3 that I looked at. Also the dealer offered to fix it for me if I really wanted the truck. Only thing that concerns me with that is it’s a Chevy dealer and not a Toyota dealer. Other thing is it’s only leaking on one side so only one side would be getting fixed. So how long until the other side would start leaking.
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
