    I had a rear driver's side seat person crack their window open with all the others closed, and it felt like I the truck was vibrating loose. Seemed like I was an inch from a helicopter blade. The ossilating ear pressure was killing everyone inside until I closed the window. Anyone ever feel this too?

    I can't say that I have done this with my Taco, but when I had my Durango it would do the same thing if the rear passenger window was down but no others. It is merely the displacement of the air and how it travels over the cab and hits the rear windows.

    Broken and scratched tailgate, cracked rear tail light lens, coffee stain in driver seat.
    A nice way to cure this, the plastic window vents.

    Yep, I noticed your complaint the day I drove mine home. Deafening.
    Can't do much about it other than crack another window a bit or play with how much the window is open.

    I've felt it. It's not unique to the Tacoma. My buddy's Explorer did the same thing. Cracking a front window prevents it.

    all vehicles do this. the only cure is to crack another window or possibly the plastic vents

    I think every vehicle I have ever owned does this...some worse than others :mad: Just one of them thangs :bananadance:

    I agree with everyone here. Every 4 door car I have owned has done this. My wife's RAV4 does it as well as my DC Tacoma.
