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.

2010 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 092011

Tacoma 4WD 4-cyl

  • 5,213 miles


Since this vehicle had 5000 miles on it I have had clutch issues. Has been in the shop 5 times for clutch issues and is currently in the shop now. The clutch is burning up, thought the truck was going to catch fire a few weeks ago. There has been a tsb on this issue and they replaced everything on the last service. It has failed again with on 3,000 miles on this new clutch. The vehicle is a little over 1 year old and currently has 23,000 miles on it. Toyota is giving me the run a round and now wants me to pay for warranty work. I have repeatedly told them they have a weak design clutch, made for a 2 wheel drive vehicle in a 4X4 truck. We think the clutch slipped so much a few ago it really did catch fire, it smoked for 10 minutes after I turned the truck off. I have filed with the houston BBB and filed with Toyota. I need help
