    Hello,
    I have a 2006 TRD Tacoma that has had lots of problems. I've no technical ability vehicle-wise but hope to translate some info here.
    Glossary already helped me.
    I needed a good off road vehicle as I hunt with spaniels and do field trials.
    Thanks
    A gem

    Suspension, ABS, vehicle was taken to dealer for repairs, probaly not a good choice, you probably know them you are fairly near me, I live in Uxbridge, MA. Boch Toyota.
    My truck has always been very jumpy, tight often airborne at moderate road defects. Toyota replaced the driveshaft because of serious vibration at 41mph. Why does such a short truck have a split driveshaft?
    I could go on...

    I bought my truck at Boch and after my second time there for service I'll never go back.

    They put 7 quarts of oil in the engine. They rotated the tires incorrectly and scratched up the center caps in the process. They didn't reset the tire pressure. (which is how I knew they screwed up the rotation)

    The service manager had me go back to make it right and told me he'd ship me new center caps and note my account to give me my next service for free to make up for the trouble. And even after that when I got home I had 3 tires at 32PSI and the back passanger at 27.

    After a couple months the caps never arrived and when I questioned it the "new" service manager says there's no record of my problems, complaints, parts being ordered or any information on my account about a free oil change/tire rotation. I've also not received another customer satisfaction questionnaire from Toyota.... I think they only get sent to people they think are happy :rolleyes:
