    Thanks for sharing this. I’m a rookie Taco owner and in the same boat. I just picked up a 19 and unsure if there are any TSBs which I should be putting on my radar.

    From what I've gathered, if you have an issue that you believe can be rectified via a TSB. Bring your truck in, explain the issue and provide them with the TSB information. If it fits the bill, they'll apply the TSB.

    Copy thanks sir. Being a rookie to Tacoma’s I have zero idea what is normal and customary. I was thinking in a perfect world they would address any issues with a 2019 before a customer can even drive away. Appreciate the info.

    Depending on what you had before, you'll notice some minor differences like the transmission can be...we'll use the word "different" until you get used to it. Also some creature comfort differences which you've probably already figured out. Any questions, no matter how dumb you may think it is - just ask here, someone has probably already asked the same question or has that question.

    Thanks so much- really appreciate it. I had a 2014 4Runner. So far I love the Taco, it’s a great truck and seems built very well. This site is amazing, I can’t believe how robust it is, there’s so much great info.

    I did a search but couldn’t find info, but does anyone use a “Super Bumper” or any other tow hitch based bumper protector? I used one for my 4Runner and it basicallly absorbs a rear hit so your sled is okay when you get rear ended. I like the device and haven’t had to use it, but it doesn’t look the greatest. Wasn’t sure if you guys had any experience or thoughts on it. Thanks very much.

    Anyone know the trick to disable the crash alert alarm? I've had a couple false positives already, and I do not trust it.

    I have the Spare Bumper, but fortunately have not tested it yet. I mostly got it to prevent damage by people who park using the Braille method.

    When I first posted about having installed it, I kinda got ripped by some members who were concerned that it would lead it increased frame damage in a collision. Oddly, lots of members put on heavy steel bumpers with no energy absorption properties (like the factory bumper or the Spare Bumper), but nobody seems especially concerned with frame damage with those. :rolleyes:

    Ok so I read somewhere on here that driving in "S6" mode proved to be a better shifting mode. Has anyone confirmed this? Sometimes I feel like it helps and other times I don't feel a damn bit of difference. I mean does it actually have different shift points over regular "drive" mode? Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Haha. Braille parking- I love it.


    I watched videos and the super bumpers can take a hell of a hit.

    S-mode is preprogrammed and doesn't used learned patterns like regular drive mode does. With that said, the tsb 58-12 or whatever it is has made my taco finally drive like it should.

    That is what I was looking for! I hate the "learning" crap about the transmission. Makes sense, thank you @drwx

    Find what? If you're asking, where to I find the setting to change it from 3 to 5 or 7? You don't, it's done at the dealership.
