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

problem #1

Jul 272007

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 42,000 miles


On July 27th of this year my 2006 Toyota Tacoma had a pressure plate failure that caused my truck to have to be towed. My truck was towed to a local dealership who told me my clutch was burned up and would cost $1450 to be fixed and would not be covered by warranty. I knew this was not true and had my truck towed to a transmission shop who found my pressure plate had failed with no sign of abuse. I had the parts replaced with Toyota factory replacement parts. When the shop received these parts they called me to tell me these parts were a different design then the parts that failed in my truck. After some research I found out Toyota changed these parts and part #S in 2006 after I bought my truck. I found several other complaints of clutch failure on the design in my truck. Even though I have proof of this Toyota denies that there was a part change or problem with my truck and has not offered me any assistance with the $1300 in bills I have in incurred with having to change this part.
