    2008 Double cab short bed TRD offroad V6........not sure if this is supposed to happen, but when I am coasting after stepping on the pedal, I notice a slight friction in my truck that seems to be slowing me down. I have tried popping it into neutral after accelerating and there friction is gone. Is this a feature on the truck and how can I get rid of it, if possible? THANKS. :eek:

    Thanks, Is there any way to stop it? It seems like I can never take my foot off the pedal because of it.

    not really. i havent heard of anyone being able to. you will get used to it the more you drive the truck,and its actually a good feature, most vehicles have it, its just alot more pronounced in the new tacomas.

    it is good if you are feeling that drag, it means there is no fuel going to your engine, and that you are running at 0mpg. also it saves your brakes.
