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.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

In January 2007 I purchased a new 2006 Toyota Tacoma. Since this time I have noticed on multiple occasions that when I am sitting at a stop, the truck lunges forward. I have never experienced this sensation with other vehicles I have owned or driven, but thought that maybe I was taking my foot off the brake pedal enough to allow the truck to move forward. My wife, who rarely drives the truck; however, has experienced the same issue. Because it has happened enough, I know enough not to get too close to a car in front of me when I am sitting at a light or stop sign. That being said, I just read an article in a newspaper that stated that there are other 2006 Tacoma drivers that have experienced similar situations, some of which may have led to crashes. For that reason, I have decided to report my situation as well.
