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.

2011 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

2011 Toyota Tacoma experiences spark knock (detonation). Same symtoms as in T-sb-0044-14. Also, the 2011 engine is the same engine that is in the 2012 vehicle covered by T-sb-0044-14. So why is the 2011 model not covered by T-sb-0044-14? I purchased the vehicle through the certified used vehicle program at the local dealer in January 2014.

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • 7,706 miles
The vehicle's engine makes a strong gurgling sound, loses power and runs sluggish at times. Toyota claims that the vehicle is running the way it was designed. I have taken the vehicle back to the dealership to have it fixed, but they claim that the computer is unable to find any defects, therefore they claim there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. I have requested a Toyota engineer to inspect my vehicle but it has been two years later, and I still haven't heard from Toyota. They also claim that the vehicle was already inspected by a specialist (engineer), but it's a lie, I have zero documentation stating so. Please help me.
