Hi Guy's, I have an 09 trd or dc. I complain to Toyota nicely since week one that the suspension is sagging and it rides very unsafe when I put more then 400 lbs in the bed. They pushed me for months telling me that they will look into. About one month ago the dealer -with out telling me nothing- slapped a nice label on my door saying that my load capacity is been dropped by 290 lbs. WOW,,, this is 25% reduction from the original 1200 lbs. A $ 32k's Toyota truck that can't carry more then 910 lbs??? I toughed that ,, here we go this is the reason the truck is sagging. I called Toyota Corp and ask them. It is true ????? and if it is,what is the load capacity I have now???. No one could answer me for more then a month. Today , finally a BIG guy from Toyota Corp told me that the technical load capacity is 910 lbs. I can load more but they are not responsible if the springs will get shot earlier plus all the BS he was reading from a Lawyer book. I ask him if they could fix it ??? knowing that they have a fix with the TSB (new springs). The guy told me that they won't and if I want they can send me Arbitrary forms and if decided ??? Toyota will buy the truck back. WOW,,, to me this sound s crazy. Would they prefer to go thru all this instead of installing new springs or try ing to fix it differently???. I never heard of a Tacoma been bought back. for this reason. The biggest hassle is that i all ready put a lot of $$$ in this truck and I don't want to loose any. Any comments, suggestion or feed back????.
Thank you and -sorry for the long tread.
