    Hey guys,
    I just bought myself a brand new 2011 Tacoma Quad Cab LB 4/4 Sport Package - Black, and I love it! But in the week I've had it is been in the shop!

    Day 1 - I got keyed on the driver's side door - about 18 inches

    Day 3 - At the dealer installing a remote start and interior/exterior protection, the guy backs up and damages the bumper!

    Long story short, they fixed both for free, and I just got my truck back today. However on the ride home today, i noticed all my gauges and radio and clock had the protector dripped on it, and won't come off! It's all cloudy and looks terrible. Grr I swear this truck is cursed!

    Anyway, few quick questions:
    1. Is it normal that even on 'off', air still flows out of the vents - hot if the heat is up, cold if it is low - but a pretty steady stream of air
    2. On the left, there is a button for 100watts and 400 watts...when I click the bottom, the 100 watts lights up. When I click the top,the 400 watts does not light up. Is there a problem?
    3. When accelerating, the shift from first to second gear seems a bit rough...the rest of the gear shifting is perfectly smooth. This is an automatic by the way.

    Maybe I'm being paranoid, but for a brand spanking new truck I expect perfection! Nice to meet all you guys here!

    I do have the bed outlet, but shouldn't the light 'light up' when pressed?

    100w will run when your truck is moving or in gear, 400w will light up (and work) when the truck is idling. The way you are saying it is working sounds normal to me.
