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.

Exhaust noise. Vehicle sounds as if there is an exhaust manifold leak.

I am writing to complain about a ticking noise from the V6 motor. I've taken the truck into the dealer twice and even drove a new Tacoma from the lot. I've noticed a sound from all of the Tacoma's. the problem seems to be a normal thing for the Tacoma's, but it's very irritating.

Since day one I heard this ticking noise, I brought it back to dealer and complained about it. They test drove it and heard the noise, then they drove a new one off the lot and said it made the same noise, so they told me it was normal. After the 3rd time bringing it back for the ticking noise they said it could be the injectors or the exhaust manifolds. Then I called the Toyota corporation and complained about the ticking and they had somebody from the dealership call me up and take him for a test drive and he did not hear the noise he told me I must have especially good hearing at that frequency. What a bunch of crap!
