The waste gate is sticking on them. Lots of people have said turbos aren't like they were 20 years ago. Well, I remember the TDi VWs having major waste gate valve issues requiring a new turbo.
I know Toyota has a good reputation and they don't want junk out there so they will try to fix this but the one big thing that makes the truck scary and different for so many old school Toyota owners was the turbo. They should have gotten this right.
I haven't kept up with the new Tundra, but it's hard to imagine Toyota having turbo/wastegate problems in this day and age with both having been around for decades basically. Somebody didn't do their homework or the "relaxed quality" decision is catching up with them. NO EXCUSE Toyota!

I'm glad I leased this 4R. I did it because its going to hold it value. It gives Toyota a year or so to work out any kinks on the 6th Gen. If I don't like the 6th Gen or they don't offer a hybrid, I will just buy my current 4R. A hybrid 5th Gen really would have been the perfect vehicle for me.

Bumping this up to see if anyone else has been debating the 2022 4R vs the new Tundra?

Ironically, I posted on this thread in December and said I'm happy with going from a full-size pickup to a 2022 ORP 4R but I"m now having second thoughts. I'm realizing I actually like riding in a larger vehicle better and miss the power of the V8 I had previously. Passing people in this 4R takes planning and it's wearing me out.
I test drove the '22 Tundra today and it is really nice. Although, I've spent weeks reading about all the issues they are having: wastegate, emblems falling off, side mirrors coming apart at 60mph and now hearing about diff issues. It's certainly not inspiring confidence in this new truck.

Regardless, I've decided I'm moving back to a truck even though I really like this 4R. Might go with a 2021 Tundra but I really like the new Tundra design.
At least I'm not really going to lose money on a trade!

I liked how it drove but the reliability scared me off. TRDJON on YouTube recently posted a 2 month review. He said the rattling the armrest makes is driving him crazy. Also a little noise in the driver's door. Seems the fit and finish is off.
Have you thought about a super charger? I am about to take delivery of my 2022 4R and have been in contact with Magnuson, still waiting on them to crack the code on the 20+ models.
