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.

2009 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

My concern involves the vacuum braking system on my 2009 Toyota Tacoma double cab. The brakes are very inconsistent and at times the RPM's increase while braking. Sometimes they are very 'sticky' and more often it takes considerable force on the brake pedal to stop. I've informed kerry Toyota of florence, ky of my concerns multiple times with no resolution. This is an on-going problem that has not gotten better with time. Also, I've had several issues regarding hesitation when pressing on the accelerator. It was taken in to the dealer and I was told nothing was wrong.
