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

Dec 012005

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 3,900 miles


Over normal use of the vehicle, it has sustained several paint chips. The paint has been chipped on the front side of the bed, from debris being thrown up by the front tires, and on the rocker panels. Toyota obviously thought of the issue by placing a thicker coat along the bottom of the vehicle. It did not work. The rear springs are also squeaking already. Usually not an issue as the bushings wear out, but a little concerned after only 4600 miles have been put on the vehicle.
