    Hello all, i got my 2012 taco and have a question. I started to notice when i shift from reverse to drive or drive to reverse my truck tends to jump. Its a automatic transmission and only had 230 miles when i got it. Im wondering if its a electrical problem because i dont remember my 2010 corolla doing the same thing. Thanks for any help.

    Define this 'jump'..if it really jumps that bad, truck is still new I'd just take it to the dealer and show them since it's still warranty

    Well the jump feels like it "jumping" into gear. Its not super violent but noticable enough. Yeah i plan on calling them up this week. Just trying to get a idea of what the problem could be. It doesnt seem normal.

    A slight bump is normal but if you're getting whiplash you have a problem.
