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.

2005 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 292005

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 235 miles


2005 Tacoma prerunner. Automatic-package 2. had new vehicle surge 3 different times after purchase first week of March. Last time sent me into middle of busy intersection. This was Tuesday March 29, 2005. Called dealer and they sent a tow truck. All people at dealership have been very nice, but say they have found nothing wrong with it. Found out last week, that a lady on a test drive had a car surge through the showroom window at same dealership. I have no faith that the vehicle won't do this again. I am refusing to pick vehicle up at dealership, even though I paid cash.
