2007 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 032007

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 2,900 miles


I was driving down hill along about 50 km/H. I noticed stop lights and cars spinning and sliding everywhere. I gently took my foot off the throttle to start engine braking and as usual nothing happens immediately. Worse, truck started to accelerate because of RPM hang problem on every manual transmission equipped model (my complaint to dealer was ignored twice). This is not exactly a place where you can push the brakes even with ABS because it also is an off slope turn. Instead of slowing down gracefully, the RPM hang actually acts like a cruise control. Combined with the downhill and the RPM hang I am not decelerating at all! suddenly the ECU finally decides to close the throttle (fuel cut off). At this point truck tail of my truck slide to the right and to the left. Only my 20 year experience and good luck let me avoid a fatal accident. The non-linear throttle response is not safe. This is just dangerous how the ECU is programmed! maybe because only <10% of all trucks have manual transmissions Toyota doesn't want to hear about it. Toyota must issue ECU patch for manual transmission models V6 Tacoma, fj cruiser to eliminate: 1.RPM hang when shifting 2.high RPM (1450) when rolling downhill in neutral or with clutch depressed 3.make linear throttle response.
