Broken Toyota...

What, a broken down Toyota? I saw this Toyota broken down in front of the local Wal-Mart. I post this for all the Toyota homers who bash all the other American trucks.

I like Toyota trucks, but as you see they are not bullet proof. Lets keep it real...all trucks have mechanical problems not just the Big 3.

1. that's a tundra 2. Probably has a broken lower ball joint, which is avoidable with routine maintenance

Toyota Homers??? You're on a Toyota Tacoma forum. What do you expect?? We're enthusiasts and most of us love our Toyotas because of their reliability. The big 3 have nothing on Toyotas reliability.

I know, I know...don't feed the troll.....

Clearly someone was just jealous of this truck and hooked a tow strap around the front wheel and drove off. Actually, all things considered, i say its in pretty good shape.

1st gen Tundra's had a recall for lower ball joints, because they started to crack and break over a short period of time. Looks like he never took it in...

yup... classic lower ball joint failure on 1st gen taco's tundras and 3rd gen 4 runners.

all because the guy probably had 200k miles on it and it was one of the few that had a bad batch of LBJ's

That's just an obvious example of warranty-voiding mall-crawling abuse, take your truck to such places and you have to expect the consequences.

Nah, nothing wrong with the truck. So alignment is slightly off and it tracks a little to the left but it runs like a champ.
