    A lot of trucks gears make a "how" or wine.... it's a common complaint from ford chevy yota Nissan you name it.. do you expect a truck to drive and sound like a Camry or the sorts? Toyota has historically been good with standing behind their products and ensuring longevity. Use your truck or sell it. The whining like a girl is getting old

    I’d recommend a second opinion from another proven dealer. I wouldn’t mention the previous experience. They might all stick together with a front to protect...

    Really? I've owned a 2003 Toyota Tacoma, a 2003 Ranger with over 160k miles on it, a 2011 GMC Sierra Denali, and I've driven HUNDREDS of other trucks of all makes and models from friends, to rentals, etc you name it. NEVER had one that howls like this on the highway.

    Like a girl? I've owned a 2002 4 runner, 94 4x4 with the 3VZ and recently a 06 Nissan Xterra. All of them had wayy more mileage than 1,200 miles. Guess what? No rear differential whine. You said " historically" I can assure you thats not the case anymore. If I pay 35K for a brand new truck you're damn right i'm going to " whine"

    If you don't like what I post then just leave the thread. All I'm trying to do is help the community by making Toyotas actions fully transparent. Am I upset? Sure.

    The end of the day. I find the Tacoma world to be a amazing resource. Had this been 20 years ago, Toyota could have pulled the wool over our eyes.

    I've been to two. They can see what other dealers have done what. I'm pretty sure its blacklisted by VIN and my name.

    Not sure if this is common in 3rd Gen Tacos or not, regardless I never buy first run of any vehicle. Let them work all the bugs out first.

    1200 miles? lol it's not even broken in yet... gears are metal they need to go through heat cycles to close tolerances and wear off any burrs.

    Actually most of the wear in occurs at the first 500. 1,200-1400 miles should be pretty representative of how the vehicle will perform. You do know that OEM gears come prelapped? But okay....

    @EMT760- I can speak for TW members that I know, these folks are here to help, understand, share the pains of a failed repair/rattle that can’t be found, we know where you are with this problem and definitely understand why you’re mad for being sold a bad unit. Complain/Grumble/Whine all you want, get all the aggravation out on here, it’ll help you solve this problem.

    Mine started howling at 8000 miles, dealership service advisor and service manager said "not normal" but couldn't do anything about it because Toyota doesn't have a fix yet. I'm headed in this month for 15,000 and is gotten worse so we'll see what my complaining will get me. (Probably nothing lol)

    Yeah I do I also have worked as engineer in enough manufacturing facilities to know about Weibull curve for "burn in" or "break in" or whatever each company wants to call it. The engineers have determined the minimum value of hours/revolutions to break in and ensure around a 99.97~ assurance rate. They are not concerned with you having mechanical differential problems because a howl isn't one. I can also tell you that if you changed your oil now you'd find metal shavings associated with break in and if you did it again in 10k miles you'd find even more gears take a while and unless you drive your vehicle for long periods of time >1hr your differential gears are not really getting hot enough to fully set.

    Maybe it’s just that simple...Toyota does not have an answer to repair it yet. :censored:

    In all honesty if you just wanted a solution now you couldget on the phone with one of the most respected differential and gear shop in the use eastcoastgearsupply.com.
    They could rebuild your differential if you truly wanted it.
    You also could replace the rear axle with a custom one from them
