05 6 speed, transmission failure at 26,000 miles. Still fighting Toyota to get it replaced under warranty. No other complaints, and I thrash my truck so it is really amazing that this is the only thing that I have torn up.

You should "expect" problem free driving I would hope. Trying to anticipate what may or may not happen with your truck is like trying to use a magic 8 ball to plan your future. You covered the bases with some of the known early model problems but I wouldn't concern yourself too much with them. As far as 'your' truck goes at this point they are simply 'maybes, what ifs and might never happens.'

If you're looking for an all inclusive comprehensive list of possible problems, I'm sure the list could and would include almost anything and everything from maybe a bad battery to faulty sensor of some sort.

Enjoy your truck. If something does happen 'then' raise the question "has anyone had this problem?":)

I've got an 07 - only 400 miles on it. I've read the same problems you have and most of them seem to be related to the 05's. I've read a lot of issues with the manual transmissions - which is why I bought the Auto.

Something else to keep in mind - especially if you're still under warrantee and plan to keep the truck stock....There's been complaints about the bed bottoming out on the bumpstops when hauling stuff. I've got an Access cab and it has only 3 leafs (2 leafs plus overload). There is a TSB for this - to replace with a 4 leaf pak (3 leafs plus overload). I jsut can't seem to find into for it. :rolleyes:

Because I am on the other side of the planet. Some crap about Toyota USA and Toyota Europe warranties not jiving, or maybe the tech is just a lazy puke. Either way if it isn't fixed in a couple weeks it will be parked on his desk and lit on fire.

Hmm... maybe you deserve a fight:

Shedded fawken mudflaps like dead skin cells until I removed them and reinstalled them on the wall of my storage shed. Damned seatbelt light blinks constantly. Oh, and I still haven't found where they hid the ashtray.

Maybe, but they haven't complained about how I've used my truck, they just complain about who pays for the repairs, USA or Germany. I found a used one for $850, but shipping is $800. Still cheaper than a new one. Might have to go that route, We'll see what happens.

i had the same problem with the mud flaps, removed as well.
put a piece of tape on the cluster right where the light blinks, so its not as bad. i recommend duck tape, it fixes everything........
and as far as ashtray, isn't that what the shifter boot if for?

I see said the blind peeing into the wind, it's all coming back to me now. LOL.

The bureaucracy does get ridiculous.
