Summary of Complaint

I took my vehicle in to the dealer where I always have it serviced, and asked them to do a front end alignment, since it pulls slightly and I noticed a little uneven tire wear. The mechanic said the front suspension is too rusted to align. I took the vehicle to a tire shop recommended by the dealer service advisor, and they said it is extremely rusted and sprayed some penetrating oil on it. I posted some pictures online in a Tacoma forum and everyone thought the rust was excessive, especially for a southern California vehicle where the roads aren't salted. I am the original owner. Based on what I read in online Tacoma forums, excessive frame rust was a well documented problem for earlier years There is excessive rust and corrosion on the front frame, suspension and steering, preventing proper steering alignment as normal maintenance. The problem was originally identified by the dealer last month during a routine 5,000 mile oil change service; they never notified me about a problem in any previous service, and the problem was independently confirmed by a tire shop when I tried to have them perform a front wheel alignment. There are no warnings or symptoms, and the need for a front end alignment is due to normal wear and tear

Summary of Complaint

While driving on the freeway, the steering wheel began to shake vigorously, then the right front wheel came completely off the truck. The ball joints snapped off causing a wreck. My truck slid into the side of a big rig. Luckily nobody was hurt, but the failed ball joints were the cause of the accident in my opinion. I also have the dash cam video from the big rig.

Summary of Complaint

THIS IS THE 2ND TIME MY TOYOTA TACOMA HAS BEEN DAMAGED BY RODENTS: THE 1ST TIME (12/15/2015), THE ENGINE WAS RUNNING ROUGH, THE ENGINE AND TRAC OFF WARNING LIGHTS WERE ON, AND THE DAMAGE WAS ABOUT $3,000. THE 2ND TIME (1/09/2021), THE ABS, AIRBAG, TRACTION CONTROL WARNING LIGHTS CAME ON, AND THE COST OF THE DAMAGE IS NOT YET KNOWN, BUT IT IS LIKELY TO BE MORE EXPENSIVE (5 YEARS LATER). I HAVE HAD 19 PRIOR VEHICLES IN 46 YEARS (8 CHEVROLETS, 2 FORDS, 2 NISSANS, 3 HONDAS, 1 JEEP, 1 PONTIAC, 1 HYUNDAI, AND 1 CHRYSLER), AND I NEVER HAD SUCH SERIOUS RODENT PROBLEMS. RODENT DAMAGE HAS ALSO OCCURRED WITH MY PARENT'S TOYOTAS (WHO HAD MANY OTHER VEHICLE BRANDS IN 70 YEARS), AND OTHER NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THEIR NEWER MODEL TOYOTAS. HOWEVER, THEY DID NOT HAVE THESE ISSUES EVER WITH OTHER VEHICLE BRANDS IN THE PAST. ALSO, I HAD A NISSAN FRONTIER AT MY CURRENT ADDRESS IN 2012 AND 2013, AND STILL HAVE A NISSAN ALTIMA AT MY CURRENT ADDRESS, AND RODENTS NEVER CHEWED THE WIRES ON THOSE VEHICLES. THE PROBLEM IS THAT TOYOTA PUTS SOY IN THEIR WIRING INSULATION, AND RODENTS FIND IT TASTY. THERE IS A RESURRECTED CLASS ACTION IN CALIFORNIA ABOUT TOYOTA'S TASTY WIRES. I ASKED TOYOTA TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY, BUT TOYOTA MAINTAINS THAT THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THEIR WIRING. HOWEVER, THE WIRING DOES CONTAIN SOY, AND RODENTS MOST CERTAINLY TO LIKE TO CHEW ON IT. SO, THIS IS THE SECOND TIME MY 2014 TOYOTA TACOMA HAS BEEN DAMAGED BY RODENTS, DESPITE ME TAKING THE FOLLOWING STEPS TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN: (1) PLACE BAG OF MOTH BALLS UNDER THE HOOD. (2) INSTALLED 2 SONIC SOUND DETERRENTS UNDER THE HOOD; (3) INSTALLED 1 LIGHT-FLASHING DETERRENT UNDER THE HOOD; (4) SPRAYED THE WHEEL WELLS AND ENGINE WITH PEPPERMINT SPRAY; (5) INSPECT THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT REGULARLY FOR SIGNS OF RODENTS;

Summary of Complaint

ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN BY STARTING WITH THE FOLLOWING 2 FACTS: 1. THE RECOMMENDED ACTION TO TAKE WHEN IT IS COLD OUTSIDE AND THE WINDSHIELD BEGINS TO FOG UP WHILE DRIVING IS TO TURN ON THE DEFROSTER ON HIGH HEAT. 2. THE 2014 TACOMA WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO RUN THE DEFROSTER WITH RECIRCULATED AIR, BUT RATHER FORCES ME TO USE 'FRESH' AIR WHEN USING THE DEFROSTER. THE 2 FACTS LISTED ABOVE MAKE THE TRUCK UNSAFE TO DRIVE IN COLD OR HUMID WEATHER FOR FOLLOWING 2 REASONS: 1. THE FRESH AIR (REQUIRED WHILE USING THE DEFROSTER) IS NOT ACTUALLY FRESH, BUT RATHER SMELLS LIKE WHATEVER AIR HAPPENS TO BE AROUND THE TACOMA AT THAT TIME, WHICH MANY TIMES HAPPENS TO BE THE EXHAUST OF THE VEHICLE IN FRONT OF OR NEAR THE TRUCK. THIS DIRTY AIR, CONTAINING HAZARDOUS EXHAUST FUMES NOT ONLY SMELLS BAD, BUT CANNOT BE GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN, LUNGS, AND OVERALL HEALTH. THIS SITUATION IS INTENSIFIED TO THE POINT OF COUGHING AND GAGGING WHEN THERE ARE DIESEL EXHAUST FUMES OR WHILE IDLING AT A RED LIGHT NEAR A LOT OF VEHICLES. 2. THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THE DIRTY AIR FROM ENTERING THE CAB OF THE TRUCK THROUGH THE DEFROSTER IS TO TURN THE DEFROSTER OFF AND TURN THE AIR TO ANOTHER OPTION (OTHER THAN DEFROST) THAT ALLOWS RECIRCULATED AIR. THIS CREATES AN EXTREMELY UNSAFE SITUATION AS NOW THE WINDSHIELD BEGINS TO FOG UP IMMEDIATELY, CAUSING THE INABILITY TO SEE THE ROAD CLEARLY. SO IN COLD OR HUMID WEATHER, YOU EITHER CANNOT SEE THE ROAD OR YOU HAVE TO BREATHE IN POISONOUS FUMES. WITH A 2014 TOYOTA TACOMA, YOU HAVE TO PICK YOUR 'POISON' IF YOU WANT TO DRIVE IN THE COLD.

THE NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH PREVENTS THE SHIFTER TO ENGAGE THE DRIVE. I HAVE HAD THE NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH REPLACED ONE TIME UNDER THE MANUFACTURE WARRANTEE. I WILL HAVE IT REPLACED AGAIN TOMORROW APRIL 5, 2018. THE DEALER STAID IT IS CAUSED BY CORROSION. THE SAFETY ISSUE IS THAT YOU CANNOT CHANGE GEARS FROM REVERS TO DRIVE. IF IT FAILS TO ENGAGE, YOU MUST RUN THE GEARS UP AND DOWN AGAIN UNTIL IT DOES. SO BACKING OUT INTO TRAFFIC IS VERY DANGEROUS. DRIVEWAYS, PARKING LOTS AND STREETS, GOING FROM REVERSE TO DRIVE FROM PARKED TO DRIVE ETC. EVEN IF IT IS CAUSE BY SALT ON THE ROADS IN NORTHEAST, OHIO 1 WOULD NOT THINK IT NEEDED TO BE REPLACED EVERY 2 YEARS AND IF SO, THE MANUFACTURE SHOULD HAVE DISCLOSED THIS AS A REOCCURRING MAINTENANCE ITEM.

FALL OF 2017 WENT TO GET THE TRUCK INSPECTED AND INSPECTION STATION TOLD ME MY FRAME WAS GETTING BAD. WHEN I GOT HOME I WANTED CHECK IT OUT FOR MYSELF TO FINE OUT IF MY FRAME WAS REALLY GOING BAD. AS I WAS CHECKING THE FRAME, I WAS ABLE TO PASS MY FIGURES THROUGH THE INSIDE OF MY FRAME. CALLED TOYOTA TO REPORT THIS AND THEY ARE SAYING THAT SINCE I DID NOT BRING MY TRUCK TO GET CHECK IN 2012 THAT THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO FOR ME. THEY SAID THAT IT WASN'T A RECALL BUT A BULLETIN THAT THEY HAD IN 2012.

Summary of Complaint

TACOMA TRUCK PARKED AND STATIONARY. PASSENGER EXITED VEHICLE BUT THE DOOR COULD NOT BE OPENED ALL THE WAY BECAUSE IT WAS CLOSE TO A WALL. THE SHARP ROUGH CORNER EDGE OF THE BOTTOM REAR OF THE FRONT PASSENGER DOOR SLICED A PASSENGERS LEG AS THE LEG WAS MOVED TO CLEAR THE DOOR.. DRIVERS SIDE DOOR IS SIMILAR BUT NOT AS TOUGH OR SHARP AS PASSENGERS BOTTOM CORNER OF THE DOOR. IT HAS LEFT A SCAR ON THE LEG. ON DIFFERENT OCCASIONS BOTH FRONT DOORS HAVE SCRAPED MY LEG TWICE ON THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOR AND MY WIFE'S LEG TWICE ON DRIVER AND PASSENGER DOOR ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE IS LIMITED CLEARANCE FROM THE DOOR THAT IS NEAR A WALL OR OTHER CAR. THIS HAPPENS ON A QUAD CAB BECAUSE THE FRONT DOORS ARE CUT WITH A STRAIGHT EDGE AND THE METAL IS NOT ROUNDED OR SMOOTH FINISH LIKE THE BACK DOORS. TOYOTA ADMITS IN A LETTER THAT THE BOTTOM REAR CORNER PASSENGER DOOR IS SLIGHTLY ROUGHER THAN THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOR WHERE THE INJURY MIGHT OCCUR. TOYOTA WILL TAKE NO ACTION.

Summary of Complaint

REAR LEAF SUSPENSION ON TACOMA TRG 4 DOOR CAUSING EXCESSIVE HI-WAY BOUNCE. IN WINTER CONDITIONS THE REAR END WOULD BOUNCE AND REPOSITION THE REAR END CAUSING SWAYING OF VEHICLE ON TURNS. THE INTERNAL CAB AND BOX VIBRATION MAY BE THE CATALYST FOR THE FRAME FAILURES IDENTIFIED IN PRIOR RECALLS? COMBINED WITH THE DRIVE SHAFT VIBRATION ISSUES AT HIGH SPEED HI-WAY TRAVEL THE REAR TIRES OF THE VEHICLE ARE CONSTANTLY DEVELOPING FLAT SPOTS AND REQUIRE EXCESSIVE BALANCING TO AVOID ADDED REAR END VIBRATION. MY VEHICLE HAS 55,000KM (ABOUT 30,000 MILES) ON IT AND I AM ON SECOND SET OF TIRES AS A RESULT.
