    I guess sometimes you just have to do things yourself. [​IMG]

    My 2011 Taco (PreRunner, V6, auto) has that same years-old problem of the delayed 1st-2nd gear upshift that so many in here have discussed in recent years.

    I'm an urban dweller so I spend a lot of time in parking garages and lots. That's where the prob is most acute; at a rolling speed of < 10 mph. Give it some gas and you stay in 1st for a full 2 or 3 sec. before a clutch-pop upshift to 2nd. Most annoying.

    'Been waiting for a TSB for this to show up. They've released one for the '09s and '10s (reflashing the engine and x-mission chips). Does the dealership initiate these things and will it do any good if I take the truck in?
