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.

After a couple of months I started experiencing a loud "squeak" coming from the rear of the vehicle and a "whistle" at speeds of 65-80mph. I contacted dealer and took it in for them to troubleshoot the issues. After about 4 months of ownership along with the above mentioned problems I started noticing a heavy vibration at slow speeds. I bought new tires, front end alignment, and had tires balanced as per my dealers recommendation. Then the acceleration issues started..... I took it back to my dealership and they performed the "floor mat fix". the vibrations just kept getting worse and the constant visits to my dealer and calls to Toyota's corporate office always ending with the "that's normal for these trucks" saying. The other day I was returning home and I was approaching a curve I removed my foot from the accelerator and depressed the brake pedal and slowed down to take the curve, I went to accelerate through the curve and my truck was not turning. The rear tires were locked even though my foot was off the brake which by that happening I had no control over where I was going.... I ended up not being able to steer around the curve and went straight through someone's yard taking out a mailbox and sliding sideways into a tree crushing the passenger side of my truck. Called Toyota's customer support and reported the locking up off my rear end, the failure of the anti lock system, and the loss of steering. All I got for my troubles was a rude "well there's nothing we can do" (as always). I have had nothing but problems since I purchased this truck. Toyota needs to address all of the issues that has plagued the Tacoma from day one. I have contacted a lawyer and have been instructed that a class action suit needs to be filed against Toyota by all of us. My email is [xxx] if you want to pursue this with me contact me.

I bought my truck used. A total of five times I've taken it into the dealership because of suspension issues. Each time I was told there's nothing wrong. My drive shaft was replaced a year ago. I noticed the leaf spring sticking out and broken. I took my truck straight in. I was told the truck was undrivable. Toyota gave me a rental and replaced the leaf springs. I picked my truck up three days later thinking the problem was fixed then two days after that, my truck felt loose and was making a popping sound when I put it into reverse. It felt like the drive line was out again. I took it to be looked at again. I was told my driveline U bolt snapped and was caused by the broken leaf spring. Toyota wouldn't fix the damages because the shop they recommended didn't use Toyota parts. My truck had 250000 miles on it. The damages to my truck were add do extreme that I had no choice but to give it back to the bank. The vibrations caused tranny damage and the axles and differential the frame had damage because the leaf spring was shoved up into it.(I wasn't told until after) no I've got nothing..... thanks Toyota......

At approximately 42000 miles I noticed a vibration in the front drivers side wheel. I had all four wheels replaced and the vibration continued so I took the vehicle to estabrook Toyota in pascagoula, ms (because that is where I was at the time). When I went to pick the vehicle up I was told the repair manager had personally checked the car out and determined it was the right front bearing so it was replaced and supposedly test driven. I left the store and immediately felt the vibration once again on the left front so I brought the car right back and they replaced the left front bearing as I had initially identified as the problem area and the problem went away. Now, two years later the left front wheel bearing has gone out once again and I am afraid to drive the vehicle.

We were inspecting the underbody of our company owned Tacoma. There is major rust on the front frame, and the steering arm (A-arm?) where it attaches to the frame. The rust is substantial enough to allow possible separation of the arms from the frame. We did some internet research and see that corrosion was a problem with earlier models of the Tacoma. We will take this to the dealership to inspect but we thought it should be reported. It appears that if those connections fail stearing would be substantially impaired.

Just leaving work to go pick up my children from school, I noticed a strange rattling coming from the bottom side of my truck. I stop and proceeded to see what it might be. I noticed the middle (of three) leaf springs had completely broke, slid out of place, and was rubbing against my brake line. I then taped it back in place to prevent any further damage to my brake line. The following afternoon I was able to take the truck to the dealership where the technician advised the service advisor (#8987) that there was no sign of any external shock or damage that could have caused this. He then explained to me that he "saw no reason why this could have happened".

Rear leaf spring on left side broke at approximately 105,000 miles. The leaf broke at both the front and rear mounting points. The left side of the vehicle dropped three inches and the broken spring made contact with the box frame. Fortunately there was no loss of driving control. Both rear leaf springs have squeaked since 2010 and required periodic lubrication to quiet them. This is a one-owner vehicle driven in the mild weather of the mid-atlantic states.
