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.

Rodents ate wiring harness in engine compartment, while driving in the city, the trac and check engine light cane on. I returned home and retrieved error code P0333 on my reader. I took vehicle to doxon Toyota for service / repair. They confirmed code and said that rodents had chewed knock sensor wire harness. I was told that tis was not covered by warranty even though the vehicle was less than two years and less than 9000 miles of use. I consider that making electrical components out of material that is attractive and tasty to rodents a traction and air-bag safety concern, I.e. soybean based wire insulation. I have been operating motor vehicles since 1963 and have never had this happen to ant vehicle I have owned.

Electronic stability control turns off when check engine light turns on. Vehicle stability is compromised. Almost rolled the truck over. Dealer technician reports that rodents ate the hose connecting fuel injector air pump to valve which triggers the ECU to fault and cascades failure to stability control. Technician reports that Toyota is using edible soy-based plastics for engine hoses and wiring harness and rodents are causing extensive damage in Toyota vehicles. Toyota does not cover related repairs under manufacturers warranty. Was quoted $1000 to replace one hose since dealer claims Toyota does not sell individual replacement part for this hose. Therefore, the ESC will not get fixed for some time.

First let me start with how I ended up with this horrible vehicle. We had a 2012 Chevy diesel, amazing truck, great truck. Diesel prices had been rising and was just costing to much to drive and we wanted to start saving some money. We shopped around and ended up looking at the Toyota Tacoma, not the best quality but none the less decent gas mileage (or so we thought). Since day one we have not been able to get better then 15 mpg on the highway! absolutely ridiculous! 14 city! have had fuel efficiency test done and that's what they came up with as well and claim nothing is wrong. Corporate refuses to do anything and claim nothing is wrong, yet everyone I know with this same truck is getting no less then 18 mpg highway. I hope I'm the only one dealing with this because the small truck gets worse gas mileage then any full size truck I've ever owned. I will never buy a Toyota again nor will anyone I know or anyone in my family. Stay as far away as possible for Toyota. Now onto the track control, it likes to activate at random. If your sitting at a stand still and try to drive forward with just the slightest roll back it goes crazy! and the brakes, if your going down a hill and you use the brake for more then roughly 30 sec it will start to vibrate, make a horrible grinding noise and the steering wheel starts shaking.... the quality of this vehicle is poor and I must add that they do not stand behind their product nor with they fix it. All they will tell you is "well sorry if your unhappy with your vehicle, we will send you arbitration paperwork."

First 3 weeks ago or so my radio shut itself off then on again, repeated that 3 time since then. Seatbelt chime went off like I just started driving again while I was driving. Dash transmission indicator light faded and re-lit. While parked and engine running trac control off light and auto lsd light came on. Today 6/3/14 the radio totally reset back to a different station when I turned truck on.
