  1. When it happened it started shaking then died on the off ramp of the freeway. I got it started again then pulled over immediately hoping to not do any further damage. I then waited over a few hours for the dealer to have it towed, Christmas Eve, 24° out. Good times.
  2. Mine did the same with the same code. Broken valve spring 6.2 with the 10 speed. They only wanted to replace the one spring. I said I didn’t want the truck back until they were all replaced. My truck wasn’t in the window of the recall but the engine was. Built at an earlier date. A few weeks later they replaced all the springs and everything’s been fine since. Problem showed up at 197 miles. Now have 8,000 but yours sounds like a transmission issue? Sorry you’re having problems. Very strange. I hope you get it figured out.
  3. Could’ve been used as a mounting hole for a handhold during assembly? Just a thought.
  4. 21’ LT TB 6.2 10 speed and I’m getting average 17-18 and at best 23mpg. I drive mostly country roads and rarely sit in traffic. 5 mpg sounds like you’re gunning it often? When I fill up it says 400 miles to empty and I get pretty close when I fill up.
  5. It’s Southern California. My sister couldn’t get a new Tacoma without paying the $5k markup. So I told her to looks in Arizona. She flew in, found a new truck in Tucson and is driving it back to CA as we speak. I bought my 21’ TB 6.2 in December for just under MSRP in Colorado. Maybe I got lucky?
  6. 2021 6.2 LT TB purchased in with 4K miles. Valve spring went out at 197 miles. A month later all the springs were replaced and I haven’t had a big issue since. My parking sensors still kinda work sporadically and the dealer hasn’t been able to fix it. Although lately the error pops up less and less.
  7. We do. Air ride and magnetic ride control. Drives like a caddy.
  8. Very nice! Her’s is a Tahoe. Such a smooth ride. Looking forward to a road trip soon.
  9. I completely agree! We had a 17’ Z71 that came with the Duratracs at least. My wife’s first reaction was that she wanted KO2’s ASAP. LOL
  10. Finally a warm beautiful day here in CO. Just thought I’d share.
  11. Agree. First I had the broken valve springs, now the brake system failure and parking sensors working when they want. First issue fixed and supposedly a software update was supposed to fix the last two. Well my parking sensors still work when they want, truck clean too, nothing dirty blocking the sensors. I hate Tundras and Fords. I’ve always been a GM guy band I love my 6.2 Trail Boss but if I keep having these issues I may have to do to Ram. Not sure if that’s even a better move or not. My 70’ C10 has a leaky quadrajet carburetor and is still more reliable.
  12. Updated pic with running boards and finally back from the dealer from the dreaded valve spring issue. 2021 6.2L LT Trail Boss in front of my most visited store. I’ve come to accept that my truck will never be clean now that I live on a dirt road. As a car nut my whole life this has been extremely difficult. ?
  13. Maybe you’re at my dealership. My 6.2 has been at the dealer for over a week. Same issue, had 197 miles on it when it broke down. It’s also outside of the bulletin but my service manager had to call the warranty manager at GM to get an approval to replace all the springs. The tech originally wanted to replace the one that broke. I said if that’s the case then you can keep the truck, I don’t want it back until they’re all replaced. I opened a case with GM, you should too so they have a record. I think they’re getting it approved and now waiting on parts. I think GM is starting to realize that this bad batch of springs is bigger than they thought or the build date of the springs needs to be taken into consideration, not the truck.
