2010 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #5

Steering is very loose on off road driving / or "washboard" type road- there is currently a Toyota tsb (technical service bulletin) #0119-10 out right now with a solution to the problem. Solution= replace intermediate shaft. After reading all the posts online, this needs to be a safety recall. My truck only has 85,000 miles on it with loose steering. And has been like this for some time!

Sudden rattling noise upon starting the truck and cruising in low speed on 9/19/2015. Have it checked by Toyota dealer on 9/22/2015. Diagnosed with total rusting/rotting of exhaust system. Need to change the whole system for 2000 dollars. Asked why it will rust and rot in 5 years. No good answer, just said "very rare but can happen".

I was driving approximately 30 mph with the driver's window down, when a running deer made contact with my driver's side mirror with it's head. The mirror was violently shut into it's folded-in position causing the mirror to shatter and project large and small pieces of very sharp glass across the dashboard and forward area of the cabin. Damage that was done in the glass' path were cuts on my left hand, slice marks on the steering wheel cover, and puncture marks on the dashboard, passenger-side A-pillar, and passenger-side door panel. Incorrect mirror material and/or proper backing material played parts in what could have been a catastrophic event if the debris field was directed towards the driver and/or passenger (if there was one). The mirror material was not safety glass or made from of a shatter-resistant material. The backing material surface contact area with the back of the mirror was only about 45% of the mirror's surface area.
