Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

May 302005

Tacoma 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


I purchased my Tacoma in 2004 with 6000 miles on it. Every since I bought it, it has been extremely high on gas, only getting between 240-260 miles on a tank. I have taken it to the Toyota dealer and they could not find out what was wrong with it. It feels as if it has a skip in it. I now have 20,789 miles on it and when I took it to the dealer they recommended a fuel injection flush so I had that done but it still feels as though it still has a skip. This is only a 4 cylinder motor shouldn't I be getting better gas mileage?
