Sooo..I recently bought a 2011 DC OR 4x2 Automatic and there has been some things that worry me or piss me off about it.
When I first got it, I had 11 miles, and I drove it home from the dealership about 100 miles away, on that trip home, I tried my best to not push it hard because it needed breaking in but I was in New Orleans and everyone drives fast to get in their lanes or not get hit. On that trip home I did not notice any of these things I am about to list.
Well around 300 miles, I started to notice the downshifting when I am coming from about 45mph to slow down to a stop. I let the gas go and the truck rolls and at about 30mph I will feel the downshift to where my head jerks forward just a bit. Kind of like I very lightly tap the break really quick. I have read about this one but have not found the solid explanation.
Another, is accelerating to take turns or slowly accelerating from a stop. When I accelerate to take a turn or go straight and I am from a stop, the truck goes slow when I am lightly pressing the gas and it takes maybe 2 seconds and I feel the shift and it proceeds faster. Normal? I have read on others but still not fully sure of my situation.
My windows, all sides, back, and windshield. Well, I was a bit of in a rush for work so I decided to wash my truck because of the bugs that smashed all over the front on the way home from the interstate. When I washed my truck, it was sunny. So some bits dried on the windows and I guess the protectant that was supposed to be there from the dealer was washed off from the pressure washer I used and the little bit of water that dried left hard water spots. I tried the vinegar and invisible glass that SO many people recommended...I did not see very many results unless I was using the products wrong. I have had the spots for about 1 week now, so it shouldn't be too deep. So what are your best suggestions for the hard water spots to be removed, and then sealed so this won't happen again.
I really love the truck, but these little things just make it very frustrating that I work so hard to pay for it, and these little things show up. I have searched on everything I had, but I would just like an answer from the factors that I have.
Thanks to whoever has suggestions or explanations. This is a great website, and I hope I don't have to leave this site if I become unsatisfied with my Tacoma and leave it. So I appreciate everything! Just let me know what you know, you know?
