    I have an 09 Tacoma acc cab automatic V6. I noticed that when I slow down going into a turn it downshifts too much sometimes and is real slow to accelerate. It also does that when I slow down coming to a stop sign its also slow to accelerate at times. Any ideas what causing this?

    It can be helped a bit with the TSB ECM recalibration. Mine used to drive me nuts, always seeming to be in the wrong gear when cornering and taking 2-3 seconds before I could accelerate out of the turn but after the TSB it's much improved.

    Thanks for the insight. I thought I had a tranny problem. This is my first Tacoma & other than that I love it!

    Try the tsb, but remember it will still downshift. It's engine braking and if your truck has the tow package than you can expect this to continue somewhat. The tsb should improve it though.

    I was just about to post about my 2010 doing the same thing. I noticed the TSB was written for the 2009 models. Anybody know if it also applies to the 2010"s?

    Took my 08 in for an oil change today and they said it does not apply to my model.....even though it's doing the exact same thing.....gotta love technicalities :confused:. They said nothing is wrong with my tranny. No computer codes. Nothing to address. Must just be me....:rolleyes:

    Asked them about the "clacking" noise when depressing the brake as well, and they said it's the pad thing and normal. $30,000 new truck with 20,000 miles and it "normally" sounds like my old beat to hell '86 2WD.....sigh.....
