Summary of Complaint

My Tacoma has the super white color paint. It has been peeling for several months from the 2 passenger doors and both front fenders. Toyota acknowledges paint issues with the super white on several models but not the Tacoma. I’ve seen a lot of the same exact issue on the internet. I went to my local Toyota dealer and they said to go to their collision center for them to make a report and send to Toyota. Toyota then told me they are not covering that yet. The paint is getting much worse. I would like to file a complaint in hopes other Toyota owners are doing the same and they will finally acknowledge and correct the issue

Summary of Complaint

The high mount rear stop lamp leaks water into the cab. The water channels in through a cheap gasket, down the inside of the frame, destroying the cushions and plastic through moisture and mildew. Toyota Corporation and Precision Toyota of Tucson (service) AZ, both say the problem is only covered by the regular 36,000 mileage, 3 year warranty. They want to charge me $575 to replace the light. However, the known issue doesn't occur because of miles driven or even age of the vehicle. I live in the desert and it has not rained significantly since I bought the truck new in 2017, according to the National Weather Service. This year, with record rains, water is freely seeping in to the cab. Toyota should recall Tacomas with this issue and replace the cheap gasket it used to manufacture these trucks.

Summary of Complaint

I have been having several intermittent issue with the automatic transmission on my 2017 Tacoma TRD off Road with 43000 miles. Among them are as follows: It fails to shift correctly (hunting for gears) on the highway and hesitates to accelerate when needed, Also the transmission sometimes has a delayed engagement when putting it into reverse or drive from a standstill. The engine will rev up like it was in neutral then abruptly catch the reverse gear causing a loud and disturbing “BANG” and even some tire spin on the pavement. I also intermittently experience a loud “CLUNK” when slowing down to a stop in traffic as if the transmission is not downshifting properly from the higher gears to the lower ones and is forced to come to an abrupt halt. The dealer has performed a software update but this has not helped. The dealer also cannot replicate these problems because the issues are intermittent. I understand that a lot of 3’rd generation Tacoma owners are experiencing the same exact issues but it seems that Toyota is not issuing a recall for some reason. I believe this is a potential safety hazard and should be addressed.

Summary of Complaint

I had to have a leaking third brake light assembly replaced for water pouring into the cab. The total cost for repairs were 496.00. My truck has only 40,000 miles and it has been leaking for a long time from the previous owner. It would have been replaced by Toyota if under 36,000 miles. There is multiple complaints on the website and a Toyota service bulletin involved with this repair. I think a recall should be introduced and a refund issued. I had the local Toyota dealer fix the leak with genuine parts.

Summary of Complaint

LEFT TURN SIGNAL QUIT WORKING WHILE DRIVING ON A CITY STREET MAKING A LEFT TURN. TOYOTA TOOK 4.5 HOURS TO DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM. SAID IT WAS IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AFFECTING THE TURN SIGNAL AND ODOMETER. SAID IT WOULD TAKE A WEEK TO GET PART AND THEY NEEDED TO KNOW HOW MANY MILES I WOULD DRIVE IN THAT WEEK BECAUSE THE ODOMETER HAD TO BE SET TO EXISTING MILES PLUS THE MILES I DRIVE DURING THE WEEK. ONE WEEK LATER WAS TOLD THE PART WAS ON BACK ORDER AND IT WOULD BE 30 TO 60 DAYS FOR THE PART. I GOOGLED THE PROBLEM AND FOUND MANY COMPLAINTS OF "LEFT TURN SIGNAL GOING OUT" ON TOYOTA TACOMAS DATING AS FAR BACK AS 2012. OBVIOUSLY TOYOTA KNOWS OF THE PROBLEM. HAVE THEY FIXED THE PROBLEM ON THE REPLACEMENT PART OR IS IT PRON TO GO OUT AGAIN. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD TO DRIVE FOR ONE OR TWO MONTHS WITHOUT A LEFT TURN SIGNAL, HOW MANY ACCIDENTS HAVE OCCURED BECAUSE OF NOT HAVING A LEFT TURN SIGNAL, HOW MANY CITATIONS HAVE BEEN ISSUED FOR FAILURE TO USE TURN SIGNAL. HOW MANY VEHICLES DO NOT HAVE THE CORRECT MILEAGE ON THE ODOMETER, MINE WONT UNLESS THEY CONTACT ME AND ASK HOW MANY MILES I HAVE DRIVEN PRIOR TO SHIPPING THE PART AS I WAS TOLD IT HAD TO BE SET AT THE FACTORY BEFORE SHIPPING. IN ADDITION THE DIAGNOSTIC COAST WAS $150.00 THE PART WILL BE $750.00 PLUS LABOR TO INSTALL. I FEED TOYOTA SHOULD HAVE KNOWN EXACTLY WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS WHEN TOLD THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL QUIT. I GOOGLED IT IN LESS THAT 5 MINUTES. SO FAR NO INVOICES TO SHARE.

THE LEAK DETECTION PUMP SUB-ASSEMBLY, CHARCOAL CANISTER (PART # 90910-AF006) LOCATED ABOVE THE REAR AXLE WILL START "PUMPING" VERY LOUDLY EVEN AFTER THE VEHICLE HAS NOT BEEN DRIVEN IN EXCESS OF 8 HOURS. CONTINUES FOR APPROX 10 MINUTES, THEN SHUTS OFF. I WENT TO MY DEALERSHIP AND ASKED WHY THIS IS HAPPENING AND I WAS TOLD THAT "IT SEEMS UNUSUAL" AND THEN ASKED ME IF I PUMP GAS "BEYOND THE NORMAL CLICK TO STOP" - I SAID "NO", AND THAT I HADN'T GASSED UP IN OVER A WEEK. SO HE SAID TO JUST KEEP "AN EYE ON IT". DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE JUST HOW OFTEN THIS IS HAPPENING SINCE CLEARLY I'M NOT GOING TO BE IN THE GARAGE AT THE TIME THIS MAY BE OCCURRING. HAVING SAID THAT, A WEEK LATER THE SAME THING HAPPENED. I'M AFRAID THAT THERE'S SOME SORT OF ELECTRICAL ISSUE AT PLAY HERE, BUT I GET THE FEELING THAT THE DEALERSHIP WON'T DO ANYTHING BECAUSE OF THE SPORADIC NATURE OF THIS.
