Thanks for the update! I too have purchased a 2010 Tacoma and within 3 weeks took it back to the dealer only to be told that "it is suppose to be that way, that is how they are made and several others have brought them in as well". I have filed my complaints and made my phone calls, but I haven't got a phone call or email or even a blink of an eye to my issue. And I too have already had a close call while crossing a lane of oncoming traffic. Apparently they aren't going to be too concerned until someone is really hurt, and that is very unfortunate. Best of luck to you and please keep us posted, as it might be able to be used at my dealership too, or against them.

David, I have read a few other posts regarding the radio issues, but never saw any solutions. I had a weird thing happen last week. While driving, with both hands on the wheel, my hazard lights starting blinking. I did not hit the hazard light button. Within about 5 seconds it shut off on it's own. Also had the air conditioning make a strange buzzing sound once that lasted for about 20 seconds. My fog light button is always on, so it is hard to tell if my fog lights are on or off.

I just bought a 2010 access cab with the same problem. Noticed it a week after I bought it. I googled "2010 tacoma transmission problems" the day I started to notice the problem and found this blog. I wish i had found it sooner. I hope they come out with this TSB for the 2010s soon. Those who have had their 09's fixed, did Toyota perform the fix free of charge?

Yes sir they did. As a matter of fact I had to inform them of the TSB and they were grateful. I think they started calling their customers to let them know of the fix.

Yes! They fixed my truck at no charge and now it seems to work as it should. Its a easy fix for the dealer just a simple down load into the trucks onboard computer for a update, now the tranny shifts correctly, I still get a annoy.down shift at times, however that is correct because of the down hill assist control.(any way good luck)
its a good truck!

You mean Si Seņor I believe Baja California is in Mexico. I have heard that Toyota is moving Tacoma production to Texas. I wonder if they are stopping the Tacoma production in Mexico?

How long could it take them to develope a program to fix the problem for the 2010s? They already know the problem and how to fix it becasue they've done so for the 2009s. Does anyone know when the TSB was released for the 09s?
