2021 Tundra Reliability

At the time of writing,the new Toyota Tundra hasn't been the subject to any recalls as yet, although two were leveled against the 2020 model. The first pertained to the fuel pump which would potentially fail in some units and the second had to do with the turn signals not being bright enough. J.D. Power, nevertheless, gave that model an above-average Quality and Reliability rating of 88 out of 100, which is apt for Toyota. Every new Tundra is covered with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, and with five years/unlimited mileage corrosion and perforation coverage.
