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.

problem #2

Mar 082006

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


At a stop, vehicle does not accelerate after depressing the gas pedal. 2 occasions nearly caused an accident. Also, at cruising speeds (60-70 mph) vehicle will decelerate without any change in pressure to the gas pedal.

problem #1

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 15,000 miles
2004 Toyota Tacoma 4X4 with 3.4L engine and manual trans. Having throttle body issues. The accelerator position sensor is failing causing the truck to stall for a second and then pick back up. Truck does not throw a check engine code when this occurs, so dealer has informed me on different occasions that nothing is wrong. I was almost ran over the other day trying to pull out into traffic when the throttle body failed. This is a safety concern and Toyota needs to address it immediately!!!!!!!! what's it going to take, someone getting seriously injured or a healthy low suit for Toyota to take action?
