While driving on a highway a small pebble stuck my windshield causing a 10 inch crack. While researching cost of new windshield I found that lots of people are dealing with the same problem on this vehicle. I live in the midwest and drive on gravel roads daily and have had hundreds of rocks hit my window causing chips that can be repaired but never a crack like this especially from such a small impact.

The 2016 Tacoma will not allow the driver with usb flash drive plugged in with music. Control the browsing album or song list with steering wheel controls. As per the 2015 Tacoma did. This is in all aspects. Of operation parked, moving, etc. I see this as a safety issue. Having to take your eyes off the road to press the browse button on the head unit and then use scroll buttons to move through the list of albums and then scroll through a list of songs to select one. Then at that point I am able to use the up and down arrow on the left steering wheel control to just go through the particular album iam in. I think it is a program feature that was over looked in the head unit and could cause wreck or damage when not fully focused on the road.

2016 Toyota Tacoma exhibits a severe resonant vibration in the steering wheel and gas pedal from unknown source. The buzzing vibration emanates through the steering wheel and gas pedal at a severity and pitch that causes discomfort, tingling in the hands, arms, and right leg¿to an extent I become distracted when driving owing to the discomfort and use unsafe driving methods to avoid the steering wheel or gas pedal. ¿when accelerating from 1,000 through 3,000 rpms, the steering wheel and gas pedal exhibit a resonant buzzing vibration. The vibration is powerful and worst in the 2,100-2,500 RPM range. Extreme cold weather temperatures (15 degrees or less) dampen it. ¿the vibration only occurs when the engine is under load. It does not happen when the engine is revved through these ranges in park or neutral. ¿when the vibration occurs in the 2,100-2,500 range, it happens at an intensity and frequency that causes clothes and shoes to vibrate. Moreover, one can feel the vibration in the skin and bones. ¿when traveling for long distances on the highway through hills or mountains, the engine often settles in the 2,000-2,500 range. The vibration is constantly present in the steering wheel and gas pedal. After long exposures to this vibration via long trips, hands and feet begin to experience tingling. I constantly try to steer with minimal to no contact with the steering wheel and using cruise control to avoid the discomfort. This affects driver's ability to feel and maintain proper control of acceleration and steering. I find myself constantly trying to get out of this range when on long-distance highway travel. I have been working with Toyota since October 2015 to address this issue to no avail. This includes three service department visits and myriad phone calls with Toyota corporate help line.
