    Looking!
    We have owned our 2010 AC 4-banger/automatic Tacoma since December 2009, and like it a lot. In fact, it became my wife's truck after the test drive. Oh well.

    Anyway, she was driving it in Fort Walton Beach with me as a passenger on Sunday, July 18, after we helped our son move down there for his job. Temperature was hot, mid 90s, and she was going to go turn on the road going to the Publix right off of Miracle Strip road. Traffic was very busy, so she eased up on the brake to let the truck roll into the intersection, so we could turn after the yellow came on. As soon as she eased up on the pedal the truck rolled, and then started pulling, much to hers and my surprise. She immediately stomped on the brake pedal, and after about a second or maybe two, we heard and felt what we think was the pads chattering on the rotor as it stopped. It almost sounded like the ABS kicked in, but we are not sure. It sure grabbed our attention, as the acceleration was noticeable. It did not go wide open throttle or anything like that, it just pulled for a couple of seconds. The truck had 5600 miles on it at that point. She drives with her left foot on the deadpedal, and our factory floormats are still in the hooks, nowhere near the accelerator pedal.

    Has anyone else experienced this? It is the only time that has happened to us.

    Thanks,

    Tim Glover

    It is definitely going there. Just got it back from Florida. From what I gather, there does not seem to be a clear solution. I was wondering if they put something in the computer already like a brake-override system.

    If you had the AC on, it could have been the clutch kicking in. It makes the truck "feel" like it accelerates a little.

    Mine does that with the AC on. Surprised me the first time it did it and guess I was a little light on the brake pedal.

    Take it for a drive Tim and put the AC on. Might be the same thing.

    yeah that ac thing happens to me as well, but its nothing drastic. the engine kicks up a couple hundred rpm's from idle and its just enough to move the wheels slowly, when at idle i was just over the threshold for remaining stopped

    Thank you everyone! That makes a lot of sense now, as we were definitely running the air conditioning and it could have kicked the compressor in just as she eased up on the brake pedal. The other possibility will always exist, although I do not think it was the case here, is that without thinking about it, she could have been lightly resting one foot near the accelerator, and the other on the brake, as she footbrake raced a 400hp '67 Camaro for ten years at Atlanta Dragway. I drove the truck home Sunday, and took it to work Monday and Tuesday. When I picked her up from the train station Wednesday after she flew home, I watched more closely how she used her feet before typing this request and telling her why I was observing. I do know that the accelerator pedal/floormat deal was definitely not even close to being a contributor. There is plenty of clearance, and the factory carpet floormats are still hooked and have not budged since the day we bought it. It did startle both of us, but was also over just about as soon as it started, which was not the issue the media made a big fuss about.

    The chattering she felt when stomping on the brakes was the ABS kicking in. I really wish there was a way to turn it off when I am driving in the woods. There are times i feel like I won't stop or slow down quick enough because the ABS is not letting the tires dig into the sand.

    I have been known to be a little lazy when moving my foot over to the brake and still had part of it on the gas before.
