Wow, I'm glad they put the problem in perspective for me there at the end. I feel much safer now. :rolleyes:

2007 TOYOTA TACOMA CUSTOMER STATES THAT THE GLARE OFF THE REAR SLOPING HOOD SCOOP WAS A SAFETY HAZARD**CC *JB

You got some brain surgeons there buying your trucks, don't you Toyota. You better stop offering hood scoops and ground effects because the elderly are easily confused. Stick to vanilla.

So now Toyota has had severe problems on:

Corolla - engine sludging

Camry - engine sludging, transmission failures, homicidal floor mats

Avalon - transmission issues

Sienna - engine sludging, transmission issues, door issues

4Runner - ball joint failures, steering linkage failures

Tundra - already been discussed at length

Tacoma - the subject of this thread, I remember something about not having an airbag disable switch too

previous gen RAV-4 - Engine sludging,

FJ - subframe cracking

Have I missed any?

edit: I tend to forget the FJ in it's entirety.

I think it is a herd effect just as Toyota's superior build quality was.

But in this case, it is the truth.

The slew of recalls made sheep people think that Toy was suddenly POS, and not to be left behind are harranguing to find problems for their vehicles. Few years ago they were the same blokes who used to be proud that Toy fixed their vehicles while offering them pizza or hot dogs and then asked them to call Toy stellar build vehicle.

I hadn't heard of problems with some of those - can you add the problem(s) with each vehicle to your list?

You left out the Prius and complaints of unintended acceleration possibly due to the same drive-by-wire system as the Tacoma. Also, there were complaints of the traction control system causing the car to stall out in snowy weather. Edited by mustang84
