Maybe try to avoid running into concrete walls, then.

2016 Drivers seating surface fraying with only 22K on it and getting in and out of it twice a day during the week and maybe 10 times on the weekends. I can't see this seat last very long.

I hate the lag between video and audio when iphone is connected. The problem happens with both USB or Bluetooth connected. I also hate that TOW/HAUL button isn't aromatically engaged when a trailer is connected. I have a trailer on my Tundra pretty much 100% of the time and would like the TOW button to be permanently on.

So are you saying " hate that TOW/HAUL button isn't aromatically engaged when a trailer is connected."the Tundra should smell the trailer being attached? Wow, haven't kept up on the technology available since my 2010......

I wish my Tundra smelled better.
Haven't cleaned it out in 2 yrs.
Starting to smell like a farm.
Toyota should do something about it.

2014 Limited.

Didn't read this whole thread but if no one has mentioned it: The cupholders really suck, they hold none of my coffee thermoses. None of them. Nice that I have 4 in reach, if i drank only things in fast food cups.

The whole console really sucks. Too deep and one big hole. Lid should slide back, not be on a hinge.

The way I see it, the Tundra is not their bread winner. They sell enough of them to justify producing them for the small niche of 100k people a year that buy one, but they don't sell enough to spend the money to have as many trim packages, or add all the little features to the Tundra that seem to be available on most of their other vehicles. Because of the economical and political climate in the auto industry in this country, The Tundra will probably never win a spot in the top 2-3 pickups sold here. And if it got close, they would probably get fined for a billion$ for some phony safety issue to put them back in their place. So, they will probably never have a boat load of options, trim packages, drivetrain options, etc, like the other trucks. Aside from conspiracy theories, the few things they did look to customer feedback on with the Tundra, they made mistakes. The rear seats in the CM is my shining example. Everyone bitched and said they wanted them, now half the people who have them, don't like them. Everyone wants this and that and complains, but don't realize what it takes or costs to have lost those things. More importantly, what they would have to give up or trade off, to have what they think they want.
I'm just glad Toyota was making a full size truck and I had the option to buy one when I did. Had I only had the big 3 to choose from, I'd be posting in a thread like this on another forum and I'd be one of the people complaining.
I don't see anyone in here complaining about failing transmissions, engine fires, failing turbos, ignitions failing and killing people, frames bending while off road, burning oil, front end components needing to be changed every year, etc, etc. And I've seen very little, if any feedback that would help Toyota engineers actually build a better truck. Most of it is pretty minor, insignificant stuff. Which is why this thread makes me say, holy crap, people are spoiled. People are never happy. You give them something great and they still find something to complain about. Was this thread intended to give Toyota feedback and help them design a better truck? I think they got this. I don't see any advice from engineers or marketing and financial advisors. If it was left up to the consumers to design and build the Tundra, it would either completely suck, or be an over priced princess truck. Or both. It would be an F150. No thanks.
This hit the nail on the head!

Mileage stinks, will have to do another Flowmaster dual exhaust system and a K&N factory air filter replacement. Both made a BIG improvement the first time around.
