I just bought a 09 in Jan 2013 from a dealer. Car fax was clean. What are the chances that the steering wheel fix was done before I picked up the truck.

What were Toyota's shortcomings?

On your Tacoma - what were Toyota's shortcomings that you had to fix?

I found out that the previous owner of my truck had custom horns at one time and the wires had been cut and the fix was loose. I fixed the connection and my horns work now.

Finally got the driveline fixed!

After multiple visits and more than a year jacking with Toyota, I got the permanent fix for the driveline vibration.
Never again.
I couldn't be happier!

So, my pedal was cut before I bought my truck, it is short and drives me crazy especially when my boots are wet my toe has a tendency to slip off the edge of the pedal.

Whats the chances of getting the pedal replaced?

What was the driveline vibration issue you had ?

What were the symptoms?

What was causing it?

What did Toyota do to fix it?

Why did it take a long time for them to accomplish it?

I think you got some bad data. Even adding all three GM disgraces together (Silverado, Sierra, and Avalanche) the F150 is still in 1st place.

36 years and counting...but good luck to GM with that 'redesign'.

Heard it on the radio (news station, and it wasn't a commercial) last week.
Silverado & Sierra combined. Didn't catch the details on the month/quarter or what.

Still wouldn't drive an "American" pickup if you paid me unless it was a diesel. My lil Taco takes a beating and keeps on running.

Loved Dad's '74 K5, and a buddy had a '73 1-ton that was a hoot.

But '81 to present? I've owned a couple of '90s era, including a '95 Suburban (same as the Silverado) and it was the worst POS I've ever owned.
It was worse than my '91 Escort.


Or by "still on the road" do they mean the drivers had to walk home?

MPG's

TACOIDAHO claims same MPG's but he is trying to compair Tacoma 4x4 v6 to Ford 4x2 v6. Even at that Tacoma still better MPG's. Not to knock American trucks. I like the full size GMC's Chevy and somewhat the Fords and Ram.
