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

Aug 042006

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5 miles


Front suspension instability, I have replaced the tires two times, and have replaced the oem shocks for the bilstein "oem trd" but the vehicle behaves like the front sway bar or the rack & pininion are loose. I have taken this vehicle to the dealer countless times but they are unable to notice the noise that comes from the front suspension or anything wrong. It is my perception that a design flaw or a defective part of the front suspension or rack & pinion have to be causing all of the instability. I really consider this vehicle very unsafe and hope to find the problem withim the next couple months or I will replace it for a Tundra.
