    Vehicle:
    06 SR5 4x4
    06 Access Cab V6 4wd. It continues to be very reliable but has some annoyances.

    - Cold start engine rattle. This is not the "normal" ticking sound, it's much louder and goes away within a few minutes of driving. Can't pin point it with my stethescope, it's been an on going problem for over 40,000km, has not gotten any worse. Piston slap is my best guess.

    - Exhaust manifold "flutter" noise at certain RPM's since I have owned the truck, I was well past the warranty before I realized there was a TSB to upgrade to the 07+ tubular style manifolds. :mad:

    - No grease zerk on the drive shaft slip yoke, next time I have to pull the drive shaft to grease the splines im just going to add my own zerk.

    I love the truck but I've got one major problem. About 6 months ago I noticed a rough texture to the paint on the roof. Within a month the paint deteriorated to the point where rust began to show through. The roof has been waxed in the past but I will admit that it didn't always get waxed as often as the rest of the truck because it is more difficult to reach. I've seen a few other posts about this problem.

    6)There is a buzzing noise coming from the glove compartment area, happens from 1000 to 2000 rmps. Not too extremely consistent but it happens just about every time i step on the gas in these ranges. Somebody, Anybody, please send me a PM if you know any way to make it stop. I just bought this brand new truck and the buzzing is about to drive me out of my mind.....HEEEEELLLLLLPPPPPPPP

    This is kind of a goofy way of hopefully stopping the sound, but it has worked for me on other cars. Get some foam rubber and stuff it between cables and such behind the glove box. If you can take it out that might make it easier. This is to isolate the ''noise maker". One time I also took out the screwsl holding a glove box in place and made like little foam washers to further isolate the noise maker. That worked immediately and for the 10 years I had the car. It is cheap and easy and MAY work. Good luck.

    6) Some of the biggest things I have noticed about this truck is the wind noise when driving on the interstate. The rattle i randomly have that sounds like it is coming from my entune head unit. My rear leaf springs squeak on and off. Random axle wrap thunks when I come to a stop sometimes.
    Must of these issues are minor, but they are still annoying with a brand new truck.

    But all and all I do love my truck and I still think the 2nd gen Tacomas are one of the best looking trucks ever produced!
