    I have a 2005 DC auto with 55,000 and I'm not sure if what is occuring is common? It's hard to explain, but I'll try! When I stop or go, it feels like the vehicle jerks just a little. Not while shifting, but when I come to a complete stop and start again. It also seems to do it when I shift it into park? If it's an issue, I'd like to have it addressed prior to warranty expiring. Any help?

    For these trucks....it's normal.

    It's the transmission 'downshifting' late after you come to a stop. What you feel is the rpm surge into the lower gear.

    If you search this forum or even google - using "Tacoma Lurch" - amoung other things that its been called. You'll find tons of information about it.

    My mother-in-laws Grand Cherokee does the same thing and more obvious than the tacoma.

    I might add that it also sounds like axle wrap which is common for these trucks.

    Grease your (drive) shaft! Just did mine last week, and it got rid of most of the "jerk" when stopping/starting.

    I thought axle wrap was often linked to vibrations while under hard acceleration from 0-25ish mph. Ive also get the "Lurch" every now and then. As long as you've got your foot on the brake and its depressed firmly, you shouldn't find your Taco eating someones rear end. ;)

    Nope, it is more commonly found with starting and stopping, especially take off.

    my 2006 DC 4x4 does this also, and sometimes when i put it in park as well, I think its normal... doesnt do it all the time, and NEVER in the winter when it cold only when it gets warm outside....i think its the 2 peice drive shaft, JMO.
