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 #1

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

When stopped at idle engine speed, my 2007 Toyota Tacoma dbl cab prerunner V6 will surge / lunge suddenly. Although I have the brakes firmly applied, the truck will still move a little bit. I've damaged personal property because of it. No injuries (yet), but it'll sure get your attention when it happens. Also, the truck will sometimes accelerate a bit when you have taken your foot off of the gas. Nothing drastic, but it shouldn't do this. This is a major concern with me; enough that I won't let anyone else drive my vehicle for fear it may startle them and they may lose contrrol of it. This happens very frequently.
