    I am interested in the warranty extension as I have had problems in the past and present with the secondary air system. How do I go about getting the warranty. I still have not received any info from Toyota.

    You don't need any paperwork from Toyota, just take your Tundra into the Dealer. Let them know what concerns you are having and if your vehicle qualifies for this warranty extension, they will then fix it.

    I had the P0418 code on my 2012 Tundra with 4.6L engine. I took it to the dealer and they quoted me $3362 to repair the secondary air intake system. They didn't do much troubleshooting as they want to replace both pumps, both valves, and both drivers. Disappointed with Toyota engineering. This is a know problem with the Tudras and they have extended the warranties to cover this system up to the 2011 models. Toyota needs to step up and cover the 2012 models as well.

    Our 2011 Tundra has 154,000 miles and this goes out!!! Over $2000.00 to repair. Just got our estimate a few days ago. Now I find out this is a pretty common problem! This is ridiculous!!!

    So when you're driving down the interstate and lose power no big deal. Toyota knew it was an issue but too bad you're 4,000 miles out of warranty. Sorry about your luck. That'll be $2000.00 out of pocket!!

    Not to speak for lewis but if there was a safety issue then NHTSA would issue a Recall. In the mean time, I would encourage Tundra Owners who feel that this is a safety issue to fill out this form with NHTSA and maybe they will issue a Recall. ;)

    And what do you do when Toyota shorts you $611.00 on the estimate because they forgot to charge for 2 of the same part? They fix it and call you with the total after they've done the repair.

    And another thing how in the heck is it legal to charge 6 hours of labor when you only had the vehicle for 4 hours and then you're gonna charge me tax on those 2 hours?? This is the worst customer care I've ever seen!! Not happy with Toyota at all!!

    Six hours? You got a Deal! I usually charge the customer 8 hours, that makes up for all the times that Toyota got over on me for low warranty times. ;)

    Just ignore lewis, he just gets grumpy. If the Dealer quoted you a price for the repair then you should hold them to it and not let them change it after they start/finish. You should talk with the Service Director and have them eat the additional cost. Make them stick to the original repair quote.

    2011 Toyota Tundra 4.6 V8 Doublecab

    New to the forum
    Just had the P0419 Code appear on my truck. Truck has roughly 106k miles on it and was bought certified preowned in August 2015. Hoping that this letter means my truck is covered. Where can I find the official notice from Toyota or what should I mention when talking to the dealer? Thanks

  15. I have a 2007 Toyota Tundra that had the Air Pump Assembly code (P0419 & P2447) come up in March 2013. Findlay Toyota in Henderson, NV made the repair under the Toyota HQ extended warranty. Well guess what? The error code is back and the pumps failed and indicate moisture. Toyota said too bad, you're screwed since the repair is five years old. They have NOT re-engineered this part/fix. You will have to do it again. The repair is a band-aid. Toyota needs to be sued in a class action. This repair is now going to be $4,000. The recommendation from another dealer was to clear the code and trade it in (somewhere else of course). Toyota HQ is absolutely pathetic.

    I too have a 2012 Tundra 4.6 truck. The same code P0418 came up. Why would the 2011 be covered and not the 2012. Same engine, practically same truck. I'm sure Toyota has experienced this problem (probably a moisture issue) on many 2012s. Thank you.

    I have the same issue on my 2012 tundra - is there a site anyone can recommend where we can plead for an extension of the warranty that covers 2011 tundras to the 2012 trucks?
