Summary

Driving down the road and was passing a truck. CEL and TRAC OFF lights came on and truck went into limp mode. Could not accelerate and truck was slowing down. Had to pull over turn truck off and restart and it ran fine until I duplicated the passing and push on the accelerator. Had codes check and was showing misfires on cylinder 3. I changed the spark plugs and checked the coils which were good. Next day was I was driving and truck had the same problems and eventually died and would not restart. I took it to the toyota dealer and they checked numerous things and had found #1 cylinder intake value was leaking. They suggested to replace the entire motor at a cost of $12,000. I declined and took it to another mechanic to see if the head just needed replacing. In that time I found others were having the same problem and it was a malfunctioning part in the intake manifold. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/2016-tacoma-in-limp-mode-fixed.659782/ This is the forum were I found the problem and it fixed it. A piece of it was holding my intake valve open and that was the cause of it not starting and the leaking valve. I went and showed the Toyota dealer and they were not aware of that problem. I would like it to get posted so others don't get con into putting a new motor if it has the same problem. It seems everyone that has this issue is around 17 and 18 year models and all ranges of mileage.

Summary

2018 Toyota Tacoma problem. I purchased the truck in October of 2018. On July 31, 2021 @ 3:50 pm While driving home I was in cruise control @ 82 mph when the display showed malfunction. The truck went from 82 mph to 60 within seconds again. A car behind me was able to change lanes to avoid an accident. The trucks display readings were Malfunction of headlight, radar cruise control unavailable & Lane departure alert malfunction and visit the dealer. After getting home I shut the truck off and restarted it. The malfunctions had cleared again. I made an appointment with the dealership for August 5, 2021.They worked with Toyota representatives to trying to solve the problem but couldn’t identify it. The conclusion was when it happens again bring it to the dealership (if possible) before shutting it off so they can do a diagnostic test while the truck is still running and showing the malfunction display. Luckily, when it occurred I was on a road with every little traffic. My problem now is that I don’t trust driving it using cruise control in normal traffic or at night not knowing if the headlights will shut off or the cruise control will shut down. This is the second time this has occur. The first time was in Aug 2019. I took to the dealer but they couldn’t identify the problem. My thought at the time was it may have been a one time event but it was not. I have pictures of the truck’s displaying the malfunctions on both events.

Summary

2018 TACOMA AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SHUDDERS, HESITATES AND MISSES AT SPEEDS BETWEEN 35-60 MPH. THIS HAPPENS CONSTANTLY. SLIGHT PEDAL AND LOW RPM'S IN 5TH AND 6TH GEAR IS WHEN IT'S MOST NOTICEABLE. ON OCCASION, THERE IS A MORE SERIOUS MISS, WHICH FEELS AS IF YOU HAVE TURNED THE IGNITION OFF AT 50MPH AND THEN RIGHT BACK ON. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN FREQUENTLY, 4 OR 5 TIMES IN THE 20,000 MILES I'VE DRIVEN IT. THE SHUDDER HAS BEEN LOOKED AT BY TOYOTA ON 3 OCCASIONS, AND HAS BEE SHRUGGED OFF AS A "TYPICAL CHARACTERISTIC OF THE VEHICLE". TOYOTA NORTH AMERICA MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR ME TO SEE THE SERVICE MANAGER WHO RODE WITH ME AND FELT THE SHUDDER AND MISSING. HE HAD ME TEST DRIVE A 2019 V6 AUTOMATIC OFF ROAD AND IT ALSO HAD THE SHUDDER AND MISSING IN THE SAME RANGE. THE FINAL OUTCOME WAS THAT IT IS A CHARACTERISTIC OF THE VEHICLE AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE. THE FUEL PUMP RECALL WAS DONE. THE POWER TRAIN WAS RE-FLASHED. NO CHANGE IN THE CONDITION. IT IS VERY UNNERVING AND DISAPPOINTING THAT THEY CONSIDER THIS CONDITION ACCEPTABLE.

Summary

DESIGN DEFECT RESULTING IN INABILITY TO OPEN HOOD. BATTERY FAILED (SUBSEQUENTLY REPLACED BY DEALER UNDER WARRANTY) BUT COULD NOT OPEN HOOD TO JUMP START. TOW OPERATOR COULD NOT OPEN HOOD EITHER, SO VEHICLE HAD TO BE TOWED TO DEALERSHIP. PER DEALER EMPLOYEE, DESIGN DEFECT RESULTS IN HOOD BUMPERS EASILY GOING OUT OF ADJUSTMENT, PREVENTING ABILITY TO OPEN HOOD. THIS IS AN EXTREME SAFETY ISSUE, SINCE IN A VEHICULAR ACCIDENT WHEN FUEL IS OR MAY BE LEAKING, THE BATTERY MUST BE DISCONNECTED TO PREVENT A FIRE, ESPECIALLY WHEN OCCUPANTS ARE STUCK IN WRECKAGE PENDING EMS ARRIVAL. I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO ME, LIKELY SAVING LIVES AND CERTAINLY PREVENTING CATASTROPHIC BURNS. THE BUMPER IS CLEARLY DESIGNED THIS WAY AS A COST-SAVINGS MEASURE, SO THAT THE BUMPER CAN BE USED FOR VARIOUS MODELS AND MAKES. THE BUMPER'S DESIGN HAS ALMOST UNLIMITED ADJUSTMENT, AND EASILY COMES OUT OF ADJUSTMENT. THIS DEFECT CAN BE EASILY CORRECTED BY SECURING THESE BUMPERS WITH AN ADHESIVE OR OTHER MEANS.

I PUMPED THE BRAKES 3 TIMES, BUT IT WAS TOO LATE AND THE CAR PARKED BEHIND ME WAS HIT. I WAS GOING SLOW WHEN I REVERSED, HOWEVER MY WHOLE BUMPER SNAPPED OFF AND MY TAILLIGHT SHATTERED. THE TRUCK SEEMED TO HAVE ACCELERATED WITHOUT THE GAS PEDAL BEING USED....THE BRAKES SEEMED TO WORK JUST FINE AFTER, HOWEVER DEALERSHIP TOLD ME THERE WEREN'T ANY CODES INDICATING A LOSS OF BRAKES. THERE WAS NO FLUID OR LEAKAGE ON THE COMPARTMENT EITHER. EVERYTHING WAS FINE I WAS TOLD, BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO ADD UP FOR ME. THIS TRUCK WAS SECOND-HAND FROM THE DEALERSHIP, SO I AM NOT SURE IF IT WAS PART OF THE TRUCKS THAT HAD A RECALL ON BRAKES. THE CURRENT RECALL ON IT HAD TO DO WITH THE PUMP WHICH THERE IS NO REMEDY FOR.

Summary

IN AUGUST 2018, I PURCHASED NEW, A 2018 TOYOTA TACOMA SR5, 4 DOOR, 2 WHEEL DRIVE, AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. THE TRANSMISSION JERKS/DELAYS/STAGGERS AT SPEEDS OF MID-30'S, MID-40'S, AND AROUND 65 MPH. THIS STARTED AROUND 8000 MILES. OCCURS WITH OR WITHOUT CRUISE CONTROL ON. IT HAS BEEN TO THE DEALER FOR 8 ASSESSMENTS OR REPAIRS FOR THIS ISSUE. RECENTLY, THE TRANSMISSION DID NOT CHANGE GEARS UNTIL 4000 RPMS WHILE I WAS PULLING A SMALL UTILITY TRAILER. WE HAD TO TRAVEL AT LESS THAN SAFE HIGHWAY SPEEDS UNTIL PULLING OVER. THIS ALMOST RESULTED IN AN ACCIDENT. THE PROBLEM IS CONSTANT AND REPRODUCIBLE. THE SERVICE MANAGER AT THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP CLAIMS THIS HAPPENS IN SOME, BUT NOT ALL 2018 TACOMAS. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE.

IN MAY 2020 I WAS NOTICED MY MAIL THAT MY 2018 TACOMA TRUCK WAS ONE OF THE VEHICLES AFFECTED BY THE SAFETY RECALL FOR A LOW-PRESSURE FUEL PUMP PROBLEM AND THAT A REMEDY WOULD COME SOON. TOYOTA STATES THAT THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO FIX THE PROBLEM UNTIL APPROXIMATELY SEPTEMBER 2020. THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE, ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY CONTINUE TO MANUFACTURE VEHICLES WITH FUEL PUMPS. ARE THOSE FUEL PUMPS HAVING NO ISSUES? IF SO, THEN HOW ABOUT REPLACING FUELS PUMPS OF EXISTING CUSTOMER VEHICLES.

Summary

AS OF JANUARY 13TH, 2020 TOYOTA ISSUED THE FOLLOWING RECALL INFORMATION ABOUT MY 2018 TOYOTA TACOMA (MANUFACTURER RECALL NUMBER20TB02/NHTSA RECALL NUMBER20V012): "THE SUBJECT VEHICLES ARE EQUIPPED WITH A LOW-PRESSURE FUEL PUMP WHICH MAY STOP OPERATING. IF THIS WERE TO OCCUR, WARNING LIGHTS AND MESSAGES MAY BE DISPLAYED ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL, AND THE ENGINE MAY RUN ROUGH. THIS MAY RESULT IN A VEHICLE STALL, AND THE VEHICLE MAY BE UNABLE TO BE RESTARTED. SAFETY RISK: IF A VEHICLE STALL OCCURS WHILE DRIVING AT HIGHER SPEEDS, THIS COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH." I FREQUENTLY CHECKED THE STATUS OF THIS RECALL (BOTH BY CHECKING THE NHTSA SITE AND CALLING MY LOCAL TOYOTA DEALERSHIPS) AND AS OF TODAY, JULY 16TH, 2020, MORE THAN HALF A YEAR AFTER THE RECALL WAS ANNOUNCED, THIS RECALL REMAINS UNADDRESSED AND IS LISTED AS "RECALL INCOMPLETE, REMEDY NOT YET AVAILABLE" ON THE NHTSA WEBSITE. GIVEN THE SAFETY RISKS, 6+ MONTHS IS AN INAPPROPRIATELY LONG TIME NOT TO OFFER CONSUMERS A REMEDY WHILE WE ARE STILL DRIVING OUR VEHICLES. THIS IS MY ONLY VEHICLE AND I DO NOT HAVE THE OPTION TO AVOID DRIVING IT WHILE I AWAIT A SAFETY REMEDY.

MY 6 SPEED MANUAL V6 3.5L TRD OFF ROAD TACOMA HAS HESITATIONS AND BUCKS WHEN YOU APPLY THROTTLE IN THE LOWER RPM 1000 TO 2000 RANGE TO ACCELERATE AND ALSO HAS POOR THROTTLE RESPONSE WHEN DOWN SHIFTING TO SLOW AND MAKE A TURN ONTO A SIDE STREET. YOU HAVE TO APPLY ALMOST 3/4 THROTTLE TO GET THE RPM TO COME TO WHERE YOU CAN REV MATCH TO THE APPROPRIATE GEAR. IT MAKES FOR A JERKY RIDE FOR PASSENGERS AND SEEMS HARD ON THE DRIVETRAIN. NO DEALER FIX IS AVAILABLE. CLUTCH PEDAL ALSO SQUEAKS ON WARMER DAYS. *TR

HITACHI SHOCKS CAN'T HANDLE DAMPENING REQUIREMENTS CAUSING THE TIRES TO LOSE CONTACT WITH THE ROADWAY - REDUCING TRACTION, BRAKING ABILITY, AND STABILITY. MY 10 YEAR OLD SON CAN COLLAPSE THE SHOCK WITH 1 HAND - NEVER MIND A VEHICLE THAT WEIGHS 4,000+ LBS. IF THERE IS ANY TYPE OF LOAD - WHEN HITTING A BUMP THE TRUCK BOUNCES DOWN THE ROAD - WHERE YOU MUST BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL TO KEEP THE TRUCK TRACKING STRAIGHT. THIS IS MOST SEVERE ON THE HIGHWAY. NONE OF THE VEHICLES WE HAVE OWNED IN THE PAST 30 YEARS EXHIBITED THIS SEVERE SUSPENSION SHORT FALL. THE ONLY TIME YOU MAY EXPERIENCE THIS IS AFTER SOMETHING IN THE SUSPENSION HAS FAILED OR WORN OUT. NOT ON A VEHICLE WITH UNDER 30K MILES ON IT. *TR

Summary

2018 TACOMA TRD SPORT MANUAL TRANSMISSION - THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE DAY 1 - ENGINE HESITATION IN 1ST AND MOST NOTICEABLE IN SECOND GEAR. THE TRUCK HESITATES AND SURGES DURING LIGHT AND MODERATE ACCELERATION - FEELING LIKE AN EXTREME LEAN RUNNING CONDITION. THIS PUTS THE DRIVER AND OTHER PEOPLE AROUND YOU AT RISK WHEN PULLING OUT INTO TRAFFIC OR HIGHWAY. IF YOU SHIFT A TOUCH EARLY INTO SECOND GEAR THE TRUCK OCCASIONALLY BOG ( STARVE FOR FUEL )HEAVILY - WHERE YOU MUST EITHER BE PATIENT, SLIP THE CLUTCH PRESS ON THE ACCELERATOR HARDER, OR DOWNSHIFT. THE HESITATION IS THERE ALL THE TIME AND MORE NOTICEABLE WITH ANY LOAD UP ANY INCLINE. THIS IS DANGEROUS AND THE DRIVER MUST BE PREPARED AT ALL TIMES TO DOWN SHIFT, SLIP THE CLUTCH, AND MUST KNOW ABOUT THE HESITATION. MY CO-WORKERS AND FRIENDS HAVE DRIVEN WITH ME AND CAN'T BELIEVE TOYOTA HASN'T FIXED IT YET. MY SON CAME HOME FROM DRIVING IT - SAYING ITS HESITATING SEVERELY. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE DAY 1 AND GETTING WORSE. *TR

THE BRAKES NEVER ENGAGED BUT THE WARNING CAUSED ME TO JUMP. IF I WAS IN A CONGESTED AREA OR ON THE HIGHWAY IT COULD HAVE CAUSED ME TO LOSE CONTROL OR SWERVE INTO SOMEONE/SOMETHING. *TR

HERE WE ARE IN JUNE (HALF A YEAR LATER) AND I WORRY EVERY TIME I DRIVE MY TRUCK THAT THIS MAY HAPPEN AGAIN. WHEN WILL TOYOTA BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR REPLACING THE FUEL PUMPS IN THESE VEHICLES BEFORE SOMEONE IS KILLED?! *TR

I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM TOYOTA OFFERING ME $100 BECAUSE THEY 'ACCIDENTALLY' MISREPRESENTED THE SAFETY RATINGS OF MY 2018 TOYOTA TACOMA. THE LETTER STATES THAT THE RATINGS WHICH WERE 4 AND 5 STARS ON THE WINDOW STICKER FROM YOUR ORGANIZATION HAVE BASICALLY BEEN ALL CHANGED TO NOT RATED. THIS CONCERNS ME BECAUSE ONE OF THE REASONS I CHOSE THE VEHICLE WAS BECAUSE OF THE SAFETY RATING BY YOUR ORGANIZATION FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. NOW THERE ARE NO RATINGS OTHER THAN ROLLOVER WHICH IS RATED AT 4 STARS. I'VE ATTACHED A PICTURE OF THE WINDOW STICKER WITH VIN NUMBER BLOCK AS REQUESTED AS WELL AS THE PORTION OF THE LETTER THEY SENT. I CAN PROVIDE COPIES OF BOTH UPON REQUEST.. I'M SURE YOU ARE WELL AWARE OF THIS ISSUE AND A CALL TO TOYOTA WAS UNEVENTFUL AS THEY TRIED TO OFFER ME $100 TO OVERLOOK THIS. I'D LIKE TO KNOW WHAT RECOURSE I HAVE IN THIS MATTER.

Summary

THE VEHICLE STALLS INTERMITTENTLY. IT IS AS IF THE TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM IS CUTTING THROTTLE INPUT FOR 1-2 SECONDS. THIS OCCURS IN HEAVY STOP AND GO TRAFFIC. SPECIFICALLY, IF ACCELERATING TO 10-15 MILES PER HOUR, THEN STOPPING, THEN ATTEMPTING TO ACCELERATE AGAIN, THE TRUCK SUFFERS AN ENGINE STALL. THE TRACTION CONTROL DASHBOARD INDICATOR DOES NOT LIGHT UP DURING THIS OCCURRENCE; HOWEVER, THE ENGINE PERFORMS VERY SIMILAR TO INSTANCES WHEN THE TRACTION CONTROL DOES OPERATE. THE STALL ALSO OCCURS WHEN SLOWING DOWN TO TURN INTO DRIVEWAYS, ETC. THERE IS NO REQUIRED INTERVENTION TO CORRECT THIS ISSUE; IT SIMPLY LASTS 1-2 SECONDS, THEN OPERATES AS NORMAL. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO TWO DIFFERENT DEALERSHIPS (BOTH TOYOTA). NEITHER WAS ABLE TO REPLICATE THE ISSUE. I WAS TOLD THE VEHICLE DID NOT HAVE ANY ERROR CODES AND THERE WAS NOTHING THAT REQUIRED SERVICE. THIS EVENT HAS HAPPENED APPROXIMATELY FIVE TIMES IN THE LAST 30 DAYS (DECEMBER 2019-JANUARY 2020).

THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL TIMES I HAVE GONE OUT TO MY TACOMA THAT I CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP RUNNING ON IT'S OWN. I HEARD IT RUNNING ONE EVENING, WHILE NO KEYS WERE INSERTED AND THE TRUCK WAS LOCKED UP.

IT WILL TAKE 3 TO 4 TIMES TURNING THE TRUCK OVER BEFORE IT WILL RELUCTANTLY WILL START UP. ALSO THE TRACTION CONTROL BUTTON DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE AND THE DIFFERENTIAL BUTTON WHEN PUSHED ON DOES NOT ENGAGE THE DIFFERENTIAL. ALL OF THESE ISSUES HAVE STARTED AT DIFFERENT TIMES. THE FUEL PUMP RUNNING WHEN NO ONE INSIDE IT HAS JUST THE MONTH BEEN NOTICED AS WELL AS THE BUTTONS. THE STALLING STARTED TO BE NOTICED ABOUT 4 MONTHS AGO AND I AT FIRST THOUGHT IT WAS DUE TO IT BEING NOT BROKE IN OR ME NOT GIVING IT ENOUGH GAS, BUT IT IS ALMOST EVERY TIME NOW WHEN I BACK UP OR GO FORWARD IT CAN STALL.

I ASKED FOR A PHONE CALL THAT DAY TO SATISFY MY CONCERN ON NO ETA FOR THE PART SINCE THIS RECALL AFFECTS MY BRAKE PERFORMANCE. NO CALL WAS RECEIVED. ON 3/27/19, I CALLED AGAIN AND WAS TOLD I HAD TO KEEP CALLING SINCE THEY HAVE NO IDEA IN REGARDS TO THE ETA FOR THE PART. SECONDLY, I CANNOT BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST SINCE I NEED TO BE AT THE REMEDY LEVEL. I WAS CONFUSED SINCE OUR RECALL STATES IT IS A REMEDY NOTICE WHICH I EXPLAINED I ALREADY HAD. I WAS PUT ON HOLD ONLY TO BE TOLD SHE MADE A MISTAKE AND THAT A MANAGER WILL CALL ME BACK THE SAME DAY. NO CALL WAS RECEIVED. TODAY IS 4/3/19 AND I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED A CALL. I FEEL THAT THIS IS NOT VERY REASONABLE SINCE THIS RECALL AFFECTS BRAND NEW TRUCKS (2018-2019). HOW CAN THIS REPAIR BE PUSHED BACK WHEN IT AFFECTS YOUR BRAKE PERFORMANCE?

MY BRAND NEW TACOMA HAS A STICKING BRAKE PEDAL THAT STICKS IN THE PEDAL'S NEUTRAL POSITION. IT NEEDS MORE FORCE TO PRESS IT AT RANDOM TIMES. THIS ISSUE STOOD OUT WHILE I WAS DRIVING IN THE MOUNTAINS ON A DIRT ROAD AND CAME ACROSS SOME ICE. I JUST NEEDED TO APPLY MINIMAL PRESSURE ON THE BRAKES TO KEEP FROM SPEEDING UP AS I WAS GOING DOWNHILL OVER THE ICE. THERE WAS NO AREA TO TURN AROUND IN THIS LOCATION AND WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE IT BACK UP THE HILL DUE TO THE ICE. WHEN I DEPRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL, IT STUCK AT FIRST THEN POPPED DOWNWARD MAKING ME APPLY MORE PRESSURE THAN I WANTED TO. THE BRAKES ENGAGED WITH MORE FORCE CAUSING ME TO NOT BE FULLY IN CONTROL AS I BEGAN TO SWERVE WITH THE BRAKES LOCKING UP PRIOR TO THE ABS KICKING IN (TIRES LOCK FOR THE ABS TO WORK). I'VE TAKEN THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALERSHIP 3 TIMES AND VOICED THE SAFETY CONCERN. THEY DID INSPECT IT, HOWEVER, I WAS TOLD EACH TIME THE VEHICLE FUNCTIONS AS IT SHOULD, PER MANUFACTURER SPECS. CASE FILED DIRECTLY WITH TOYOTA CORPORATE ALSO HAD NO RESOLUTION. ONE VISIT STATED ANOTHER VEHICLE ON THE LOT HAD THE SAME CONCERN.

SAFETY ISSUE REGARDING THE TOYOTA TACOMA V6 WITH 6SPD AUTOMATIC. SLUGGISH FROM A STANDSTILL, IF STARTING FROM A COAST, THERE IS A DEALY UNTIL IT ACCELERATES, THE VEHICLE DOWNSHIFTS ABRUPTLY INTO 4TH GEAR IF A GUST OF WIND OR ANY INCLINE CROSSOVER, BRIDGE, OVERPASS OCCURS. THE VEHICLE WILL LOCK DOWNSHIFT TO 4TH RAMP UP RPM'S TO 3300 AND ABOVE, AFTER CRESTING THE 3300 RPMS STILL OCCURS, IT WILL EVENTUALLY UPSHIFT INTO 5TH GEAR, BUT WILL HOLD 5TH GEAR AT 55MPH AND ABOVE SOMETIMES INDEFINITELY, OTHER TIMES, FOR MILES THEN SHIFT INTO 6TH, ALL THE WHILE DRIVING ON A FLAT SURFACE. IT IS UNSAFE, CANNOT PROPERLY TOW ANYTHING, AND SUBSEQUENTLY, THE MPG'S ARE SUBSTANTIALLY LESS THAN POSTED DUE TO THE DEFECTS WITH THE TRANSMISSION. TOYOTA FORUMS ARE UP TO 145 PAGES OF UNHAPPY TACOMA OWNERS SUFFERING THE SAME ISSUES, WHILE TOYOTA TAKES THE STANCE IT IS NORMAL. THESE PROBLEMS OCCUR EVERY TIME I DRIVE ON THE HIGHWAY.

Summary

ACCELERATION DELAY/HESITATION, UNP? TRY TELLING A DRIVER WHAT TO DOREDICTABLE AND DANGEROUS COMPUTER TRANSMISSION COMBINATION. I NOW HAVE JUST OVER 4000 MILES ON MY 2018 TOYOTA TACOMA OR 4X4 DCSB. PURCHASED IN JULY, GOT A SOFTWARE UPDATE IN AUGUST AT ABOUT 1100 MILES. WHILE THE THROTTLE RESPONSE IMPROVED POST UPDATE, THE HUNTING FOR GEARS AND WHAT GEAR DO I BELONG IN CONFUSION HAS NOT REALLY IMPROVED. I MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LIVE WITH SOME OF THE GEAR HUNTING/CONFUSION, BUT THE ONE ISSUE THAT JUST KILLS ME EVERY TIME, IS A DELAY FROM PRESSING THE PEDAL UNTIL THE VEHICLE ACCELERATES WHEN I AM IN A COAST AT APPROXIMATELY 15-25MPH. I CAN LITERALLY PRESS THE PEDAL, COUNT 1, 2..AND THEN THE TRUCK REVS AGGRESSIVELY AND KICKS INTO GEAR AS IF IT'S NOW OVERCOMPENSATING FOR THE DELAY AS OPPOSED TO WHAT SHOULD HAVE JUST BEEN A GRADUAL INCREASE IN SPEED. THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN EVERY TIME, BUT IT HAPPENS OFTEN ENOUGH THAT IT IS AN OBVIOUS FLAW AND IT HAS NEVER IMPROVED POST UPDATE. AND ONCE AND JUST ONCE, I PRESSED THE PEDAL AND IT JUST DIDN'T REACT AT ALL, IT WAS JUST DEAD, THEN I RELEASED IT AND PRESSED AGAIN AND IT ACCELERATED. I HAVE NEVER IN MY ENTIRE 24 YEARS OF DRIVING EXPERIENCED A DEAD PEDAL UNTIL THIS BRAND NEW 2018 TACOMA. THE UPDATE I AM REFERENCING FLASHES THE COMPUTER OF THE TRUCK AND THE SAME CALIBRATION ID WAS RELEASED TO COMBAT A NUMBER OF ISSUES KNOWN BY TOYOTA. THE TOYOTA SERVICE BULLETIN ID'S FOR THIS UPDATE ARE 0062-18, 0058-18, 0125-18.

Summary

TOYOTA HAS AN ISSUE WHERE THERE SERVICE TECHNITIANS, DEALERS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NHTSA MANDATED SEAT BELT INDICATORS AND OPTIONAL INDICATORS. I HAVE REPORTED AN ISSUE WHERE THE SEAT WILL NOT SLIDE CORRECTLY AND THAT THE SEAT BELT SENSOR AND OPTIONAL ALERT SYSTEM SEEMS TO BE MALFUNCTIONING. THE OPTIONAL SEAT BELT INDICATOR MALFUNCTIONS AND CAUSES A PROLONGED AUDIO DISTRACTION TO THE DRIVER THAT INTERFERES WITH THE ROLL THAT OTHER SAFETY FEATURES SUCH AS REVERSE SENSORS, ETC. CANNOT BE DISTINGUISHED. TOYOTA ALLOWS THE DEALER TO TURN OFF THE DISTRACTING OPTIONAL CHIMES, BUT THE DISCRETION IS LEFT TO THE DEALER AND NOT THE DRIVER WHICH POSES RISK TO PEDESTRIANS, DRIVERS AND PASSENGERS. THE MAJOR PROBLEM IS THAT THE FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MANDATORY ALERT SYSTEM AND THE OPTIONAL ALERT SYSTEM MEANS THAT DEALERS ARE IGNORING CUSTOMER REQUESTS TO MUTE THE OPTIONAL ALARM INCREASING THE RISK OF DISTRACTION TO AN UNACCEPTABLE LEVEL.

I WAS DRIVING WITH ALL TSS (TOYOTA SAFETY SENSE) SYSTEMS ENABLED (AS IS THE ONLY DEFAULT SETTING ON THIS TRUCK) WITH THREE PASSENGERS (MY YOUNG FAMILY) AT ABOUT 50 MPH ON A SOMEWHAT CURVY MOUNTAIN ROAD. THE TRUCK'S PCS (PRE COLLISION SYSTEM) SLAMMED ON MY BRAKES ERRONEOUSLY WHEN A CAR (NOT IN MY PATH OR LANE) ON A CURVE WAS SLOWING TO TURN OFF ONTO THE SHOULDER. THE TRUCK DROPPED SPEED RAPIDLY AND UNEXPECTEDLY UNTIL I PRESSED THE ACCELERATOR HARD, AND COULD HAVE CAUSED A REAR END COLLISION HAD ANOTHER VEHICLE BEEN FOLLOWING ME. THE TOYOTA PCS SYSTEM IS NOT READY TO BE USED SAFELY ON PUBLIC ROADS, AND NEEDS TO BE RECALLED OR DISABLED EASILY AS A DEFAULT SETTING BEFORE SOMEONE GETS INJURED OR KILLED!

Summary

THE 2018 TOYOTA TACOMA HAS A PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM THAT DOES NOTHING MORE THAN BEEP LOUDLY AT THE DRIVER WHEN IT "THINKS" I NEED TO BRAKE. IT IS OVERLY SENSITIVE AND SERVES AS A DANGEROUS DISTRACTION WHENEVER I AM IN HEAVY TRAFFIC. AS AN EXAMPLE, ON TIGHT CITY ROADS WITH CARS PARKED ON BOTH SIDES IT DETECTS THE CARS ON BOTH SIDES AND CONSTANTLY GOES OFF. IT DETECTS GUARDRAILS AND SIGNAGE ON CURVES. I WAS TOLD BEFORE I BOUGHT IT THAT IT CAN BE SHUT OFF, BUT THAT WAS NOT REALLY TRUE. IT CAN ONLY BE TURNED OFF FOR THE DURATION OF THE DRIVE. IT RESETS TO ON AT FULL SENSITIVITY WHENEVER I RESTART THE TRUCK. IT IS EXTREMELY UNSAFE, AS IT DISTRACTS ME IN TRAFFIC AND DRAWS MY ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE ROAD AND TO THE DASHBOARD EVERY TIME IT BEEPS. SO, I HAVE TO GO INTO THE DASH MENU AND SHUT IF OFF EVERY TIME I START THE CAR, OR I'M FORCED TO FIDDLE WITH IT ON THE FLY IN TRAFFIC. IT IS UNCONSCIONABLE TO PUT SOMETHING LIKE THAT IN A VEHICLE AND NOT ALLOW THE DRIVER THE OPTION TO PERMANENTLY DISABLE IT. I COMPLAINED TO TOYOTA (CASE#1807122684) AND TOLD THEM THAT THIS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS DEFECT/DESIGN FLAW AND THAT EVENTUALLY IT WAS GOING TO CAUSE ME OR SOMEONE ELSE TO GET IN AN ACCIDENT, AND THEY DIDN'T CARE. THEY MAINTAIN THAT SOMEHOW CONSTANTLY DISTRACTING THE DRIVER IS A SAFETY FEATURE AND THAT THE TRUCK IS SUPPOSED TO DO THIS. AS MORE OF THESE FEATURES BECOME STANDARD THE NTSB HAS TO REGULATE THEM AND FORCE MANUFACTURERS TO CONSIDER THAT NOT ALL DRIVERS ARE THE SAME. THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO BEEPS AND ALARMS AND THESE DEVICES ARE THE OPPOSITE OF HELPFUL IN THOSE CASES. THEY ARE DANGEROUS. MAYBE THIS "FEATURE" HELPS SOME DRIVERS, BUT TO ME IT IS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. THERE NEEDS TO BE A WAY FOR THE DRIVER TO PERMANENTLY DISABLE THESE TYPES OF FEATURES AND MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE
