Thanks for replying. The Dealer could not provide me with any "FIX" information and at one point told me it's just how the 2010's run. He told me the engine is all computerized and the delay was due to each computer catching up to the other. When you apply your foot to the brake, a computer engages. When you reapply the gas, a second computer engages. The computers need to be on the same frequency. Hence the delay. VERY FRUSTRATING. I'll bring the truck in.
Thanks again to you all. Hopefully this works.

shamrock5: That's what they all say. I've been reading these posts since 04/09 when I had issues with my 2009 Tacoma. There are dozens of stories of what the dealer has made up to tell us. Some are pretty ridiculous, for instance, "the computer has to learn your driving habits." Anyway, since Toyota would not fix my truck, I went to arbitration and lost. In July 09, I then traded my Tacoma in on a new Frontier because I considered the Tacoma not safe to drive. When Toyota issued a TSB in Nov for a procedure to re-program the computer, I filed a complaint in small claims court. I'm still waiting on the outcome. Good luck. Be persistent.

tacoma1958 is right. There have been more excuses that Carter has pills. The TSB0703-09 for 2009's and -10 for 2010. It does fix the problem. If they won't give it to you send me your email address and I'll send you a copy of it.

hey, i have a 2010 tacoma and had the delay issue when slowing down to about 10-15 mph. i took it to the dealership and told them about the problems of it engaging to the right gear at that speed. they said that it could be a number of things. then i told them to take a drive with me to show them exactly what it was so it would be difficult for them to deny what i was referring to. they ended up reflashing the computer and now it runs fine. they were resistant to admit to anything, but once they reflashed it it ran fine. i would just be persistent and try not to piss them off. because once you do, they dig their heals in and want to prove you wrong. unfortunately, you're at their mercy, and more than likely they will win. so my advice is to just kiss their ass a bit and act the fool. that's what i did. it was difficult, but guess what. it paid off. good luck!

I too have had this issue with my 2010 Tacoma since I bought it in Oct. 09. The dealership kept telling me that there wasn't a fix for my VIN..etc, yadda yadda yadda..took it to them twice, drove them around since "they" couldn't find the problem. Finally I kept calling the Toyota Corp. Service dept. They called me back last week and told me that the dealership WILL be calling me to bring my truck in to get fixed. It wasn't 10 seconds after I hung up that the dealership called me to schedule my truck. I take it in this Thursday to get "fixed". I'll keep you posted.

Thank you. I brought my truck down this morning and the head mechanic searched, but could not find the TSB0703-09 or 10 in his laptop work computer. I scheduled an appointment to bring my truck in next tuesday, 03/02, for what the mechanic called a "REFLASHING". He told me that he wasn't sure if this would fix the issue, but they would still do it.
Could you please email me the info on TSB0703-10, so that i can bring it in with me on tuesday. (wdowneshillsborough.net)

Here at Toyota now getting my "reflash" done, and it is being done reluctantly! Can't wait to see what becomes of this deal! I also feel a small vibration thru the gas pedal. It just started tho, so I will give it a little bit to see what becomes of it before I bring it back in here again to be told I am mistaken. I had to keep reporting my "gear searching " problem to the NTSB and Toyota Corp. AND even TODAY, when I brought it in for the appt. and they read the work order, the tech looked at me and asked what it was doing..I explained it to him and he gave me a look of disbelief and like this is the FIRST time he has even heard of the problem!!! (rolling my eyes) C'MON! Good luck to you all and I'll let you know tomorrow if this "fix" does it.
