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

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • 100,000 miles


On several occasions my truck has completely lost power. A few times it happened while pulling into traffic resulting in me almost being hung out in a busy intersection. When I push the gas pedal, it starts to move forward, then suddenly loses power. I believe the problem is somewhere in the throttle body. I also get some hesitation when lightly hitting the accelerator at highway speeds.

The contact owns a 2004 Toyota Tacoma SR5. The contact stated that fuel fumes were emitted into the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who diagnosed that there was a hole in the fuel tank. As a result, the fuel tank and sending unit needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but did not offer any assistance. The vehicle was repaired. The failure and current mileages were 111,000.
