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.

2008 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 142010


  • 28,000 miles


At a complete stop for a red traffic light and after about 30 miles of highway driving the truck began accelerating itself to somewhere between 1500 and 2000 RPM's I immediately depressed the accelerator and as the truck passed slowly through the intersection, I shifted the automatic transmission into neutral. The truck returned to a normal (idle) RPM. I got back into the flow of traffic and proceeded. I called a Toyota dealer and described the problem. The next day, I drove the truck to the dealership without any further problems. The dealership was approximately 40 miles away from my home and most of that driving was highway driving. The dealership service staff and a Toyota service person from another city all inspected the truck and test drove it. They found nothing. After several days, it was returned to me. The weather at the time of the incident was partly cloudy, dry and the outside air temp. Was in the low 90's. the Toyota service people told me that although nothing was found wrong, the floor mat was suspect. It was not involved in any way.
