    Has anyone heard if Toyota is looking into the surging issue that plagues our trucks? Like when you are sitting at a traffic light and it wants to lurch foward. I think they ought to look into it. I took mine into the dealer both here in corona and where I bought it in OC. Both dealers said they could not replicate the problem. Could be a software problem with the hill assist? Just a thought.

    Yeah, I gots boost
    Uh oh... Let the gates of hell open with all problems that any Toyota has ever had... I think honestly that it must be something to do with the hill assist, and it also seems to me that the ones that have the most problems are those with manual transmissions...

    I have an auto and experience a lurch a few seconds after coming to a stop. It only happens when the A/C compressor is on (which does engage when the defroster is on) and it's in time with the compressor cycle. Essentially when the compressor switches I feel the lurch. Turn the compressor off (which is has been off most of this winter) and it never happens... turn it on for even 2 minutes and the next stoplight I hit it happens again.

    I don't consider this to be a real problem... as long as you have reasonable pressure on the brake pedal you won't move, and what I experience is definitely tied to the compressor turning on/off.

    The hill assist is to keep your truck from rolling back on a hill. Both Auto and manual have the system. Holding the brake is not the solution. If you hold the brake like any other vehicle it lurches foward. I had my last Toyota truck for 18 years and no problems. This truck has been doing this since I bought it in 2007.

    I own a 2010 and also, have noticed my truck doing that occasionally when at a stoplight/sign. It doesn't matter if i'm on an incline or on flat road or have the A/C on or off. I always get paranoid and think some A-hole rode up behind me and nudged my bumper... :eek:

    I knew subaru had a hill assist at one time but in the 30 + years of driving Toyota with manuals I can't remember Not rolling back slightly when starting on a hill :confused:


    Actually I kinda like rolling back a little, it wakes those folks up behind me that seem they need to creep up closer and closer while waiting for the light to change :D
