#356 of 598 Tranny Problems

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?

Thank you for the correction. But I Si Senor that you got the pun. Thanks for the laugh. I have not heard that so I couldn't tell you.

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?

The fix for the 2009 came out on 11-3-2009. That was several years after this problem came about. It is not new to the 2009. Why it won't work for the 2010 I couldn't tell you. To be honest, I'm not so sure that it won't work for the 2010 or even the 2008/7 etc. It is a programming problem. I'm grateful they fixed it for the 2009 and there might be a vary good reason why it won't work on the others. No one wants to explain it. Doesn't make sense I know but until someone finds out and shares it with others it is what it is. Keep pursing it.
#365 of 598 Rust Problem to almost Tranny problem
Dec 04, 2009 (12:38 pm)
Well yesterday my 99 loaded TAC with 49000 was just impounded by the dealer. They wouldn't let me drive it way. The stabilizer bar was rusted off and the frame was truly Swiss cheese. Guy in sales computed my payoff at 1.5 KBB (retail excellent) around $15,300.00 . Believe me, I was salivating.
I was feeling so good I almost signed off on a 2010 similar TAC which I drove around the parking lot. I didn't, however, and when I got home hit Consumer Reports where the tranny report was all red (excellent). Satisfied, I almost quit there but there were 5 member reviews or posts which I decided to read and one led me to this forum. Thank you so much!!! When the salesman calls today I will give him an earfull. I also posted a warning on the "Rust" forum.
So now I need a small truck and plow similarly priced to the 2010 TAC.
Is the Nissan the next best choice? Anyone hear of any problems with the TACOMA manual transmission? My plowing is minimal and I can plow with a standard. Again, thank you forum posters.
