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

problem #1

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • 39,000 miles


My truck recently started having problems turning on. I noticed it only happens when the fuel tank is half-full or just below half. The truck finally starts after 4 or 5 attempts and runs fine for the most part. Sometimes when I am driving it kicks a little, like it loses a little bit of power but quickly regains it. When the tank is full it starts with no problems. I have been reading online that it is more than likely fuel related, specifically the fuel pump. The truck is just a little over 40K miles and according to Toyota, the fuel pump, if that is the case, should last more than 100K before malfunctioning. I feel this is a big problem to start having with a truck that is still fairly new, and it is not cheap to replace. I am asking to please look into this as a possible manufacturer defect. Thank you.
