    I have just upgraded from a 1st Generation Tacoma to a brand new 2009 2nd gen. Both models were automatic and the factory 4x4 TRD Off Road package. I think my tranny is slipping, but I want to make sure this is not how the truck is supposed to drive.

    We have these large wide 'road humps' in our subdivision, and when I accelerate after a hump the revs go way up and it takes a second for the car to go. If it were a standard, I would say the driver was taking his foot off the clutch too slowly and pressing in the gas too quickly.

    It does this when slowing (to about 10mph from about 30mph) around corners as well. I have tried flooring it, and easing it, and all the button-modes, and taking over-drive off. Nothing seems to change the way this acts.

    Is this slight slippage normal? The 2002 was tight and the acceleration was spot on. And if anyone has some insight, I would appreciate some advice as to what to tell the repair shop.

    Thanks very much. I appreciate any advice. I'll post some photos as soon as I can get to a nice location.

    This seems to be a normal feeling, I went from an 02 to my 07 and felt the trans was a little sloppy as well. But I would like to add that no one else that rides with me notices this. I am funny like that. And after owning the truck for 2 yrs i don't notice it anymore, and i love it.

    My new 09 seems to do something similar when turning onto a side street & accelerating.
