    so i just put my third transmission in my tacoma! crazy i know, i bought the truck with 40k on it and it seemed okay then, then at 60k the first one went out so the warranty covered it. it was slipping alot between 1-2 2-3 and 4-5. so i left for deployment and my mom got the truck from march to november. i get it back seemed okay but wasnt really thinking about it much, last saturday i went offroading and on my drive back home i felt it start slipping again! so tuesday i took it into the dealership and they covered it since it was within the 12 month period since the last one.

    has anyone else had or heard of any problems like this?

    Never head of that problem, very strange. Most of the auto transmission people say that their transmissions are great.

    just to clarify, by "cover it" you mean they have put in three completely new/different transmissions in the course of 35k miles? that is highly coincidental. I wonder if there is an electronics issue associated with your problem.

    There has been 3-4 instances reported here in the past number of months. One as recent as a couple of days ago.

    its a daily driver, i do use it for hunting fishing and normal outdoor recreation, but i do sometimes offroad a lil hard but who doesnt. but besides that i never even saw the second one be put it because i left for deployment and mom picked it up and had it until november and she is very easy on vehicles. then i get it back @ 70k put 5k on it and only off roaded a few times, and went out in december. so i dont know whats going on but this one only has 400 miles on it now

    Maybe someone welded your diff gears together as a joke or something:confused:

    There has to be something else causing the trannies to go bad

    I have on 09 4x4. The tranny overheated the first 1000mi. But that's only due to my friend's stupidity, not a toyota problem. They replaced it and it works fine. You shouldn't have anymore problems.

    You have something else going on there. The most probable suspects that I'd go after are:

    - Improper ATF level. Perhaps the dealer's tech doesn't know what they're doing and putting incorrect levels in it. Or worse yet, the wrong oil.
    - Computer shifting logic is incorrect
    - Something you're doing while driving. Though, I abuse the hell out of mine and I'm over 37.5k and still shifting like butter.

    Good luck in your ventures, but lemon law typically would not apply in this case due to millage/length of ownership. However, check your local laws as each state is different.

    Check state law, but Lemon Laws typically apply to new vehicle purchases only.
