    Has anyone heard about a problem with the automatic transmissions on the 09 Tacomas? Someone told me that there is going to be a recall because of "hard shifting" being experienced on Tacomas. Mine shifts a little harder than my wife's 06 4-Runner, but not that bad. I have an 09 4 door Tacoma.

    You are very welcome! I had to show it to my service guy too. Took an hour to fix. You will be glad you did.:)
