    Toyota corporate sent out field tech/engineer to checking my truck this morning. They acknowledged the vibrations issues and gave me rental truck..

    My 2019 OR does this, Toyota here called corporate engineers and was told its a characteristic of the truck- and more pronounced on Longbeds.

    There's also a fella in this thread who said his went away after 5k miles. Either way, I had mine checked and documented by the dealership I bought it at, no monkey business if something fails or gets worse down the road.

    Please continue to keep us posted.

    I feel like almost everyone has the 30mph to stop (mines specifically 26-27mph down to ~10-15mph) and the response from Toyota to my dealer/tech (which said it didnt feel right) was that it's "normal".... likewise, they took out another TRDOR DCLB and said they felt the same thing.

    Update from my service advisor:

    I GOT YOU. THE GUY WHO CAME OUT WAS FROM TOYOTA NORTH AMERICA. HE GAVE US THE GREEN LIGHT ON ALL THE PARTS; HE ORDERED THE PARTS; HE INSPECTED IT; HE TOOK THE MEASUREMENTS, SO WE'RE STRICTLY GOING OFF HIS RECOMMENDATIONS. HE WAS AND IS FULLY AWARE THAT THE AXLES HAVE BEEN WORKED ON TWICE LOL. THERE'S JUST SOMETHING OFF ABOUT ONE OF THEM. I'M NOT SURE WHY. THEY ARE BUT MACHINES... YA KNOW?

    I read somewhere that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results ... hopefully it doesn’t apply to axles. Am looking forward to the results ! Keep us informed jimmy :fingerscrossed:

    @Not_Sure,
    I won’t give up. I will fight behalf of everyone that have vibration problems.
    I at least got the field tech to acknowledged that there was a problem with the truck and they are doing something about it.

    Newbie to this forum but wanted to post that I experiencing this with my new 2019 Tacoma 4x4 Offroad. I've had it for less than a week and already taken it to two dealerships after seeing this page. Both dealerships told me this was all normal and nothing wrong with my new Truck. I was so excited to buy my dream truck and then this started happening to me. Still happy but don't feel this is normal.

    On my 2019 Tacoma off road 4x4, they replace both rear axles, both rear backing parking plates, a bunch bolts, seals, bearings that go with the axles, and they resurfaced the rear drums. I immediately felt the difference. The vibrating is gone. It’s been about 400 miles since the repair and so far so good.

    I am new to this forum, as I just bought a new 2019 TRD Off Road Tacoma. That being said I am experiencing this slight vibration as well, similar to what others are saying here. I was doing internet research and came across this thread and decided to sign up and comment. I still not sure if this is just normal behavior (I came from a WRX STI so very different suspension obviously) or something that needs to be fixed. After reading through this it sounds like a lot of things are still being figured out. So I am very interested to see what comes out of this from the community. Thank you to those that are going through the hassle of dealing with the dealers/Toyota, etc.

    Have had my 2019 Tacoma now for exactly 2 months with 2,285 miles on it. Took it in because the vibration when breaking seemed to be a little excessive. Having to replace the rear axle and other items because of it. Guys said today it’s a known issue.

    Interesting that they said it is a known issue. If that is the case, hopefully Toyota will come out with a TSB. Keep us informed on if the rear axle replacement fixes it.

    Went to the dealer for my howl and my 30-40km/h vibration (axles were previously replaced). The good news, the howel is suspect to be a bad carrier baering (may be some of the higher speed vibes but i doubt it). The service writer made a mention that there was an obsene number of these at the warehouse which is likely a sign of Toy gearing up for a TSB.

    The bad news. I finally got a "the techs said its normal and just how the trucks are". Well this is my 3rd attempt at a dealer level fix so its time to escalate to Toyota Corporate (as per camvap requirements).
