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.

2007 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #4

While driving my 2007 Toyota Tacoma X-runner pickup it accelerated without driver input. I shifted into neutral gear and vehicle's engine revved to an excessive number of revolutions per minute, for approximately 5 to 6 seconds. I confirmed nothing was holding the accelerator pedal down. The engine's revolutions per minute was excessive to the extent, I feared the engine would fail. The uncontrolled engine revolution ended on it's own. My local Toyota dealer stated there is an electronic chip installed to limit excessive engine revolution, prior to causing any damage. Further, that none of the present "government recalls, " apply to the above vehicle. This occurrence occurred once and has not been repeated.

I have a 2007 Toyota Tacoma. Since I have owned it, when I drive, the steering feels loose. It seems like I am constantly trying to maintain a straight line, more so than on any other car I have owned. Also, when I stop, sometimes the engine feels like it downshifts and lurches forward a little bit.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tacoma. The contact stated that the engine idle races very high and the vehicle lunges forward. This happened as he was depressing the brake. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and was check and they could not duplicate the failure, and because they could not duplicate the failure there is nothing they can or will do for the contact. VIN number is unknown. The failure mileage 28,280.
