Hi Everybody! Wish this was a more positive post however I am looking for feedback on a dilema with my Tacoma. Let me start by saying that I have owned a Toyota truck since 1978 and have been evangilistic about the brand and now my Wife, Mom, Brother and two Sisters all own Toyotas. I travel quite a bit for work and my 2001 Tacoma only has 67K on the odometer ... Read More
Three months out of warranty and with 34,000 miles I have fuel sensor light indicator issue with my 2009 Tacoma. When I asked Toyota if they would cover the repair cost of $300 they said no. Their response reminds me of how GM treated customers in the 80's. I haven't bought a GM product since then and plan to do the same with Toyota.
I'm still dealing with my Tacoma with similar synchro issues. I bought my 09 new in 2009, its a 4x4, trd off road, v6 sr5, 6 speed. At 4500 miles the transmission locked up, synchros were found worn and made the transmission stick in 4th. Transmission was replaced under warranty. At 30k there was grinding from 2nd to 3rd, synchros replaced and transmission rebuilt under warranty. 34500 the clutch blows up, ... Read More
My 2009 quad-cab Tacoma, the headlights lense area in front of the daytime running lights have melted and cracked. I see this reported on other Toyota forums, so I thought I post it here. Check your headlights. Since my truck has 47k miles on it, Toyota will not replace lights. I feel this is a safety issue and have filled a complaint to the DOT safety site. Since new, the radio ...

Mine is a 2009 Tacoma Regular cab, mt, 4wd, 2.7 motor. I too have the black exhaust. 3 dealers showed no interest, but Penske Toyota took me in and linked to the engine. All showed fine. Forward to January 2012, I'm at 40k miles, average 22 mpg and no drivability issues. I feel the oil is a bit dirty, but not excessive. Unrelated, my 2004 Tacoma xcab, auto, 4wd, 3.4 motor ...

Okay, this DOES work ! I own a 2009 Tacoma. When your light comes on, do this BEFORE you reset to the new, true, & final running tire pressure of 29 to 30 PSI. First, pressure up ALL your tires to 35 PSI (5 with spare tire sensor & only 4 for 2009 & up models). Then reset the sensor light with the reset button, as called for in the owners ... Read More
jmack: The first thing is to find out if the Toyota program for Tacoma frame rust program is still in effect. Back when I sold them my 1999 Tacoma - in Sept. 2008, they were qualifying rusted Tacomas under two circumstances: 1. Surface rust had to be, in their estimation, in excess of their "standards". At the time their standards were they didn't want very much surface rust on any Tacoma ... Read More
I don't know about Toyota "National", but Southeast Toyota had at least one complaint. It went to arbitration. At the very least, I'd call that a complaint. I traded my Tacoma on a Frontier. What a relief I don't have to drive that ****** anymore. It's a shame, too, becasue besides the transmission issue, it's a good truck.
Carbon is a normal byproduct of combustion. The "soot" you are refering to is pure carbon that is left over after the combustion of the hydrocarbons has occured in the combustion chamber. Other byproducts of the automotive engine include H20, C02, N0x, CO, et all. Because complete combustion is impossible - you will always have soemthing left over. A quick internet search of any model will reveal that a lot of ... Read More

Same deal for me on an 02 Tacoma frame I had replaced in 2009. I had abotu $700 worth of items I had to pay for that weren't covered. I got no where with them. I still have my truck as a second vehicle, but I've moved on from Toyota. Bought a land rover. Yeah..I know about Land Rovers....but at least Land Rover doesn't claim to be top quality!
It depends on the model year of your Tacoma. Toyota originally included a sensor on all five tires, but starting with 2009 models, and continuing through the current (2011) models they stopped adding them to the spare. The sensors are little radio transmitters on the inside of the wheel, attached to the valve stem.
I am a Toyota fan, always have been, but I only owned my 2009 Tacoma Pre-Runner Double-Cab for 1 1/2 years. I was tired of the surging at low speeds from the Transmission. The dealer said that is the way a truck is....well I don't believe that. This was the 3rd Toyota truck I have owned and the older ones did not make me afriad to own. My truck was made ... Read More
2009 Tacoma. My truck will shift hard when it first starts up. It revs high when its cold but will quickly get to a normal RPM within a minute or two.

Since this is my ... Read More

I was wondering if anyone knows how to disconnect or remove the downhill assist feature from a 2009 Toyota Tacoma auto, V-6 TRD offroad Package, I don't use it, I never go off road, and I do believe this is why the transmissions have the annoying down shifts and not knowing when to shift correctly...maybe just a reprogramming issue?

shamrock5: That's what they all say. I've been reading these posts since 04/09 when I had issues with my 2009 Tacoma. There are dozens of stories of what the dealer has made up to tell us.

In July 09, I then traded my ... Read More

I have owned my 2010 Tacoma Prerunner for 3 weeks and am also having similar problems with the transmission. However, I have not completed the Toyota Purchase/Lease Survey and the dealer is VERY interested in making me happy...at least until I complete the Survey.

I don't know who the Dept. of Consumer Affairs is and what they can do but I've never heard back from the NHTSA either. Toyota's attitude has been terrible and very tough S@#t that's for sure. Again, go to post #319 change the link as stated and print it out and take it to the dealer. If that doesn't work make a sign 2' x 3' and park across the street ... Read More
This is an update to my first posting #191. I did get a response from the Department of Consumer affairs. However they said after a short investigation that they could not do anything but write Toyota a letter with my concerns. I have taken the truck to another dealer who did take it for a road test and put it onto the diagnostic computer check. I was told they could not ... Read More
I can't answer that for sure but I suspect that it will. It is a programming change and I don't think there are any changes between the 2009 and 10. Go to post #319 and make the changes I suggest and print it out. Good luck.
Well yesterday my 99 loaded TAC with 49000 was just impounded by the dealer. They wouldn't let me drive it way. The stabilizer bar was rusted off and the frame was truly Swiss cheese. Guy in sales computed my payoff at 1.5 KBB retail excellent around $15,300.00 . Believe me, I was salivating. (If "retail excellent" is not accurate I would like to hear your experiences-thanks). I was feeling so good ... Read More
I heard back from the Service and Parts Director this afternoon (as he promised). He stated that Toyota was aware of the defect with the 2010 transmission and were working on a solution. Also, as promised, he opened a technical case file on my issue with Toyota. The TSB for the 2009 model does not address the defect with the 2010 model and he could not provide a timetable for when ... Read More
Well, hopefully good news folks. T-SB-0373-09 was just flashed (meaning downloaded) onto my Tacoma this morning by the dealer. It is titled as ECM Calibration:Enhancement to Shifting Performance & Smoothness. It says applicability is for 2009 engine 1GR Transmission 5AT which I presume is automatic 5-speed. It says " To enhance shifting performance and smoothness below 20 MPH during the 2-1 downshift on vehicles equipped with an A750 transmission, the Engine ... Read More
1051 current miles purchased September 30,2009. transmission shifts HORRIBLE. Took it in for service Friday the 13th of November 2009.

They called me the next day Saturday said it was all better. i picked it up they had to put 2 quarts of transmission fluid in it. YES IT LEFT THE FACTORY ... Read More
I need to admit an addendum to this post. I got an email from the NHTSA http://www.mycarstats.com/reports/TOYOTA/TACOMA/2009/complaints.aspx?strintAgeSt- atus=45. I see very few complaints in there. May I recommend that all file their complaints with these people.
Well, here it is 4 days later and I've still not heard from the dealer about this new TSB. Apparently, not everyone at Toyota is aware of this yet. My guess is that Toyota is trying to figure out what residual effect this is going to have on possibly other fly/drive systems it has employed elsewhere. There policy of claiming ignorance of the problem is amazing. I'll give them another day ... Read More
Glad to see so many people benefiting from reading and sharing their experiences. Its a shame that Toyota is so poor at communicating with their customers. its pretty that their customers (us) want to communicate. In fact, every time I see their newest TV commercials asking potential customers to "ask someone who owns one (Toyota) I want to get angry. I want someone to ask me. I will tell them about ...

Hi Thanks for sharing this wonderful info. on the new software downloads for the tacomas. I really hope this helps out. My truck goes into the dealer monday AM I was looking to trade this in if Toyota repair this. Thank you, and I'll be sure to post my findings after they hopefully correct my truck.
Good news!!! I carried my 2009 Tacoma to my dealership yesterday for its 5,000 mile oil change and they had received a TSB from Toyota. They reprogrammed my computer and the drive home was like a different vehicle. The service manager told me that Toyota released the TSB on November 3rd. They are not simply re-booting, but are actually feeding in new information to the computer. Hopefully, it will stay fixed. ... Read More
I have a 2009 2.7 4 speed auto & mine certainly has the same problems described and from what I read, so do all the other 4 speed autos. I posted on this forum a while back & Toyota issued a TSB (#0096-09) back in May/June 2009. They 'reprogrammed' my ECU but this did nothing to remedy the problems & I believe made it worse. I'm surprised that there isn't an ... Read More

Toyota is actually going to issue a TSB and fix this problem? I can't believe it, but hope you are right and that they are not just blowing smoke on this.

2009 Was a big change for the tacomas, They added the downhill assist control and computer changes to the trans.(different shift points) 2008 would be the truck to have not the 2009 or new. When they change something, the screw it up. Never had problems before, so why the hell change it. Downhill assist control get rid of it Toyota, I don't need it.

I believe that the sensor is in the valve. Here's a snippet from a Toyota bulletin regarding a change to the 2009 Tacoma spare tire: "11.

I bought my Tacoma in May as well. I hardly had it home when I noticed the same thing as you.

Amazing that Toyota is conducting their biggest recall ever for floor mats that may cause an accelerator to get stuck, yet they are ignoring the Tacoma transmission issues. What is that commerical they have right now, that 80% of Toyota's on the road today will be on the road in 20 years?

Still fighting with Toyota to get a fix for this. Now we wait for the week when a Toyota rep is available to "look" at the problem. It is maddening that they won't own up to this problem.

If I may add a note here. First off, the term "Normal Characteristic" is one used by the Toyota people. It defines their belief that it is not a problem and that is the way it is supposed to work.

The arbitration team (who is ... Read More
ccl1961, Trying to understand your hostility and why you would even take the time to post your message if it is a normal characteristic? How do you know it is a normal characteristic? Have you surveyed every single 09 Tacoma owner to know how many transmissions are actually behaving like this? Are you saying that every 09 Tacoma does this? Sounds like you work for Toyota. Apparently you don't mind a ... Read More
Toyota national has no such complaints regarding their transmission, I guess keep reporting. I did notice their are 12 complaints on the NHTSA site. I am waiting to see whats new for 2010 tacomas.
Kevin, To be as charitable to Toyota as I can, they are flat-out lying to you. Not sure if you are referring to salespeople at the dealership or Toyota national. Either way, its a real stretch to believe everything here and at Cars.com, Consumer Reports, etc. is simply made up and fabricated & if so, to what end. Ask them why they have a TSB & they are going to arbitration ... Read More

Well my friend if Toyota is telling you they have no complaints that is an outright lie. But then why would they. There are other posting out there like Edmunds with complaints like you see here. There are some out there without this problem which begs the question what is different? When I pose the question to them all I get for a response is it is a normal characteristic. That ... Read More

I also filed a complaint via the NHTSA web site. I also returned my truck for repair on 3 separate occasions. They reset the computer, then checked the fluid and, on the third visit, did both. I then met wit 2 Toyota service reps that said there was no issue. The truck performs as designed. You have no claim. I filed for arbitration. The company that heard the case in on ... Read More
Yep...just sent mine back to the dealer today - 2nd time - they claim everything is normal. I have asked to see the Toyota rep. - they quoted me 3 weeks wait for that. However, the lemon law here requires 3 trips to the dealer to file ...so I'll make one more to satisfy the law...and then file for protection.

What an excellent description of the problems. I had the Toyota rep look at my truck yesterday and apparently they can't see the problem. Therefore, I filed a complaint with the NGTSA today. I get the feeling this is going to be a long hard road. A necessary one however for safety reasons. Everyone with this problem should file a complaint. Hang in there.
Seems from the posts that at least word is getting out to potential customers about this issue. My truck now has around 8300 miles on it and still the transmission gets hung up when turning corners, downshifts a little rough when slowing down around 35 mph, and is jerky at times when accelerating. I have also just recently noticed that at around 25-35mph when the transmission starts the downshifting, if I ... Read More
Hi Everyone & thanks for reacting - I wish Toyota would do likewise. I'm looking at my service invoice & it states: "Test drove vehicle. Verified concern. Found TSB #0096-09 pertaining to concern. Recalibrated ECU per TSB. Test drove - passed." Obviously I don't agree it passed but I can't fault the dealer, I think they are trying but Toyota is just looking away and pretending none of this is happening. ... Read More
Yes, good question what it the TSB number. I've sent 4 people to the Nissan dealer in the last 2 months who were considering Toyota Tacoma in Florida, You would think they would wake up one day and realize that fixing this could not possibly be as expensive as loosing their reputation in the small truck business. Apparently they don't get it. The funny part is, about the time they figure ... Read More
I don't know what the TSB # is either. Hopefully, it will show up here. I currently am waiting for the Regional rep to look at the truck. I want to say that I find this rather silly that this is proving to be such a challenge. Don't know why it can't be resolved nor why Toyota is apparently so resistant to tackle the problem.
pesteele1: I have not heard about a TSB for the '09 Tacoma. I would much appreciate the number if you have it. I have made multiple trips to the dealer and even met with 2 regional reps from Toyota and they made no mention of a TSB. B
Very good description. I've noticed the feeling of downshifting when coasting as well. Didn't really associate it as being part of the problem but I suppose it could be. I agree to pursue this issue with the NHTSA. Don't know if a common trait with this problem is where it is made. Mine was made in Mexico. A question to be asked also is other vehicles by Toyota employ the drive ... Read More
I've been lurking for awhile but thought I'd share this re my 2009 Tacoma standard cab automatic 2WD. I purchased this vehicle in mid-April & now have ~1,150 miles. The automatic transmission is largely electronically controlled & has a known software issue that Toyota has already issued a TSB for. Unfortunately, the TSB seems to have made the problem worse, at least in my case, & Toyota doesn't seem to have ... Read More

I must say that as I am currently looking for a small/medium size truck to purchase in the next few weeks, I will not be looking at the 2009 Tacoma any further with so many problems reported. I had narrowed my choice down to the Tacoma and Frontier and these posts just made up my mind for me...maybe if they start losing sales, they'll take notice and fix this serious problem. ...

I have filed paperwork for arbitration concerning the transmission problem on my 2009 Tacoma. The company that is conducting the hearing is hired and payed for by Toyota.I was given the options of either presenting via oral presentation or via documents only. I chose the latter. I do not have hopes of winning but am keeping my fingers crossed.
Well.. mine is finally screwed....after 125k it died. I had the same problem as you guys since 2001, the slip, clunk, the dealer mechanic and Toyota Office of the president "go screw your self" speech, if you guys have the problems now, please make sure you document it and stay on it, after a year the dealer will blow you off. "this is the first time i heard about it" from ... Read More
I thought I had a transmission problem with my 2009 Tacoma Double Cab 2x4. I would come to a red light and when I hit the brakes the rear tires would start spinning and the engine would start reving up. I took it to the dealer twice and was told the computer showed no problems. I filed a complaint with the U. S. Corporate Office in Torrance, CA. They sent a ... Read More
Hi paulb67. I'll try :) . The money factor that you were quoted for this truck looks good. It is right in line with Toyota Financial Services' buy rate for it. The other important number to focus on when leasing is your vehicle's selling price. It's excellent that you already know what that number is. It is difficult for me to say how attractive it is, however, without something to compare ... Read More
Please help. My zip code is 23322. I am trying to buy 2009 Tacoma DBL cab, 4x4, manual transmission; 6 cyl with off road pkg. One internet sales person has said the firm price is 28769 minus the $1000 rebate. I had offered $26500. The other sales person at another dealership quoted me $27850. I thought since I was looking for a manual I could get a good deal. This is ... Read More
I'd like to see where the "1000 mile" benchmark is mentioned in any Toyota publication. And if the truck is normal why would they reset anything. That just doesn't ring true. B
