Background: Around 600 miles I started noticing the truck had a somewhat jolting rough 1-2 shift and eventually started developing a backlash/thunk feel when coming to a stop. I now have 3500 miles on the truck and it continues to do it as well as what can only be described as a binding feeling when coming to a quicker stop and slowly letting off the brake towards the end.
I have been to the local dealer and one other dealer for a total of 6 times thus far. Every single time they tell me it is a normal characteristic of the truck. I have had a corporate toyota guy inspect it and a corporate technician guy look at it. The corporate technician guy stated in the write up and per my service advisor that they "verified the condition" and it is normal.
I am really fed up and tired of fighting. I really like the truck and don't want to get rid of it but just want this issue fixed. I really don't believe it is normal like they tell me.
What do you guys think:
-Backlash/clunk when coming to a relaxed stop.
-Binding when coming to a stop and letting off the brake slowly towards the end (truck seems to jump).
-Vibration (sometimes worse than others) at about 20-25mph deacclerating
Anyone have these issues or had them and got them solved? Where should I go from here? Please PM me if you have as I really would like to get something done about this.
Thank you for taking the time to read and I really appreciate any opinions or advice someone can give me.
