I seem to have bought a lemon. I have a 2010 TRD Extracab w leather. I have 13,000 km on it and have likely had it in the shop 15 times. I have had to replace every electronic component in the 4 wheel drive system. When it is cold the truck won't shift into 4 wheel drive - just flashes the 4Lo and 4wd icon. At that point I can't change into or out of 4 wheel drive until the truck has been shut off for a period of time and decides to work. Next step according to the shop apparently is to change the front diff. No code shows up on the diagnostics when the dealer checks with service computer.
Then the heated seats burned out and needed to be replaced.
I have had 3 vent fan motors put in - keep squeaking.
Lately the stereo will spit out all of the discs and then will stop working for a day or two and then mysteriously start working.
Is anyone else suffering the same dismal reliability? Anyone aware of a Service bulletin or program from Toyota to solve this? I'd prefer a new vehicle as I am concerned the electronic demons will not be exorcised and I'll be faced with big bills when warranty disappears. Not to mention time off work to take the thing in so frequently.
To be clear, I like the Taco, seating, driving, gas mileage etc. Just want mine to be as good as yours.
