Thought I would start a thread to consolidate everyone who has issues with their new TRX. Will make it easier to search for new issues and make updates as we address them.

Here is what I have so far:
- High pitch squeal in engine area (@Crazyotter) THREAD
- Front differential broken / leaking (@2TR) THREAD
- Oil temp sensor leaking (@TRX000057) THREAD
- Axle boot leaking (@RR305) THREAD
- Center damper missing bolt (@Distilled DesignWorks) THREAD
- Gas cap cover falls off (@Justin06) THREAD
- Service transmission / check engine (@Smoke king) THREAD
- Leaking oil (@Jester) THREAD

Let me now what I'm missing and I'll keep the top post updated as we go.

I agree, good idea. In addition to the user, add a link to the thread where the discussion is?

And, ask the poster for the resolution so that we know what to expect if we have the same symptoms, but can also be intelligent when walking into a dealer who is blind to the issues that are going on should any of them be a trend.

So we had a snow storm here in NYC I drove the truck in Snow Mode from Long Island to Brooklyn approximately 34 miles and once I stopped I got a message on the cluster SERVICE TRANSMISSION with a check engine light and the truck wouldn't go in park. I had to shut it off and restart it to get it in park! I let the truck sit for about 15 minutes the TRANSMISSION service went away I drove back home 34 miles in Auto mode with the check engine light on!
Now I'm assuming that the transmission went into limp mode do to getting to hot and all will be well tomorrow but I still made an appointment to have it looked at! If anyone else has any insight I'm happy to hear your thoughts ‼️

Drove away from the dealer started hearing a noise after about 20-30 min. Got out and crawled under it, found the front bolt for the damper missing lol. Gonna need a new drive shaft but it drove home 600 miles fine no problems after this.

Aint no positive. That is an embarrassment! What if that was a bolt on the control arm?

Man I’m trying to stay positive but this is really bad. Coming from a Toyota, I’m in for a shock.
I've been a die-hard Tundra fan for 20 years!! After everything that's happened so far... no communication from the dealership, seeing people get TRX's that were ordered months after mine, etc. etc. etc. This rig is gonna have to exceed my expectations by a LOT for me to love it the way I've loved my Tundras!! We'll see...

Let us just hope the TRX doesn't turn into another Wrangler JL with it's countless engineering flaws, recalls and star bulletins......
