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.

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 15,400 miles
: the contact stated while the four wheel drive was shifted from four wheel drive high or low, the vehicle will not always shift. The four wheel drive light illuminated and the audible alarm stating the vehicle has not shifted came on. An additional 5 attempts were needed after the vehicle was moved. The technical representative from the manufacturer drove the vehicle and determined this was normal operating conditions. Also, when the outside temperatures were below zero degrees the keyless entry would not unlock the vehicle. The dealership tested the key fob and replaced the battery, but this did not repair the problem. Updated 3/22/2006 -
