    I have a vibration at take-off say between 5 to 15 mph. I mentioned the problem to the service manager today while inquiring about a TSB.He said I am describing exactly what was a problem on Tundra's with a automatic transmission. He said it was a torque converter problem on the Tundra's. He said he has never heard of this problem on the Tacoma's. Is anyone else having this problem and have they found a way to correct it?

    I have a small shudder/vibration when accelerating 1/2 throttle or more from a stop. Almost feels like the wheels are slipping a little bit. Ive heard that the TSB fixes this.

    That is the service bulletin I went to have looked at today. They sent me away telling me I didn't qualify for the bulletin. I came home this evening and read the bulletin again and found that they obviously didn't. I am qualified. They just don't need to replace the shocks due to the Off Road package.

    I will mention the TSB T-SB-0132-08 when the service manager contacts me about the small mistake he and his mechanics made by not reading completely the bulletin. He has a nice email waiting for him in his inbox concerning his mistake.

    Just remember to be patient and use good words. Harsh talk is only remembered for its harshness, not for its content.........:D

    Trust me, I have my own experience with the unexperienced at the dealer, and stearness and confidence with good words goes well beyond their reach of intimidation.:)

    I have a similar shudder at take off. I thought it was due to drive line angle. I have OME dakars in the rear. I did install the center bearing drop tho?

    I've got a similar issue. when going from a stop it feels like a clutch slip(its automtic) lobeing kind of feeling. i have been to the dealer about it and currently in test drives with them to point it out. i have had the rear spring tsb done and the trani mount tsb done. this is fairly new. i'm also experiencing the 35 and 65 mph vibration. still working with the dealer on this one as well..i like my truck but the tsb's and vibration issues are really starting to hamper my enthusiasm for it.
