    Hey first post! What's up!?
    Anyways I got a 2020 Tacoma with 1100k mile put on it in 4 months.

    There is an almost whistle/ringing noise while accelerating slightly coming from the front left of the taco. I read that it could possibly be the fuel pump but the truck was bought 4 months ago new.

    Let me know what y'all think!

    Reserected from the dead.
    Tape a penny to the bottom of the mirror. It'll stop the resonsing.

    what they said, but also try pushing top/center of door. mine whistled there during crosswinds due to poor seal.

    There is a TSB for that. I had it done because I mentioned the key words from the TSB and they replaced the seals.

    2nd gens had same exact issue.

    I don’t get Toyota’s terrible customer service across the board. Itll bite em in the ass eventually

    yeah but my dealership wanted me to remove all racks and accessories because they claimed my prinsu was the cause. was going to do the simple fix of shoving another hose inside the weatherstrip, but the noise went away when I put on fenders. Must have changed the airflow over the door enough.
