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

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

After reading a news article about unintended acceleration in 2005 -07 Tacoma pickups, I was reminded of an incident I had a few months back. Indeed my Tacoma surged when I hit the brake. When this happened, I realized my foot was on both the brake and the accelerator. I had to pick up my foot and re-apply the brake. There was no malfunction on the car's part, but the pedals are positioned too close, and at the same distance from the floorboard, which makes it much too easy to press them at the same time. This should indeed be reminded, for it is a real problem. It is easy a the driver to assume that they are only pressing the brake because the brake pedal requires more pressure than the accelerator. I could hardly feel the accelerator pedal under the right side of my foot while I pressed on the brake, but I was depressing both at the same time.
