    Which TSB are your referring to?

    I'm just up the road from you in Pearland. Look for red truck with black headlights the next time you're out. That'll be me.

    Technical Service Bulletin- It is a non-mandatory fix to an issue many people CAN have with their vehicle. In this case certain Tacoma's suspension parts are not up to the task of carrying a large load and they bottom out. This causes a "harsh ride" under load. Do not confuse it with a recall, a tsb is not mandatory. If you search out "harsh ride tsb" you should get alot of stuff to read.

    SamSter0077- We sold our pop up in 2006 and haven't hung out with SETPUCC since, we used to have a Starcraft 3606. Have you ever run into Toby and Rita? They have a Gen 1 Taco D-cab and an off road Jayco. Really nice folks!

    Yeah! I know Toby and Rita.. great looking Gen 1. Part of my inspiration for trading in the 2wd on a 4x4.. No pup anymore? that is a total bummer! Need a 4x4 camping group!

    Ron Carter will probably be pu$$ies about it based on past performance & as was stated, Star didn't seem any better about selling more cars later. They both act like this'll be the only Toyota you'll ever buy & don't really give a shit about any future business you may bring or refer. Of course, I paid cash for every one I bought so they weren't able to rape me on interest so I guess that may be it.

    Yeah, I had bought my Wrangler from Ron Carter. I never took it there for service, never went back again either. I felt like I was attending a timeshare promo, not buying a vehicle.

    Wow, maybe I was wrong. If Star doesn't work out I may see if Ron Carter wants to earn my future business. Thanks for the heads up!

    No problem! I was not too sure if they would, but i explained how I was hitting the bump stops when moving a friend, and of course the crappy a$$ radio. Called back later and he said they would do it. Hopefully they dont call me and change their mind!

    Well, out of the blue Star Toyota called tuesday afternoon and said my warranty parts arrived. It's kinda weird because they never told me they would even do the TSB. So I called and made the appointment for Monday.
