When Toyota released the TSB in November last year for the '09 Tacoma transmissions, I filed a complaint in small claims court. Two weeks ago, the judge ruled in my favor. Today I received my settlement. I sold my truck in July '09 at a loss and Toyota was forced to compensate me for that loss because they did not honor their warranty. My Toyota nightmare is over and so I will no longer be following this board. My advice: Be Persistent.

Hi 2010tacoma, sorry should follow the site more regularly, my vibration is noticeable between 60 and 70 miles per hour. Drop below 60 and it gets less noticeable. Funny thing is it was not there right after I bought it, it has only popped up the last few months. Of course I had the mechanics drive it and they did not notice anything just like the trans problem before I forced the issue and had it flashed, by the way that fix did correct my other problem.
Have an appointment again to get my possessed radio replaced and I will have them drive it again. Mine being a 2009 is not covered by the drive shaft recall but it sure feels like something is out of balance. Any others experiencing this. In my old hot rod day balancing the drive line to reduce vibration was a common thing.
#500 of 599 TSB for 2010 Tacoma transmission fix
Mar 28, 2010 (7:17 pm)
My husband and I just bought a 2010 Toyota Tacoma automatic double cab TRD 3 weeks ago and I used Edmunds to look up info before we bought it....however, did not find this forum until afterwards. This basically is my husband''s truck and he said he is having the shifting difficulties at low speeds also and going around corners. Could someone please send me the TSB0703-10 so I can print it out to bring to the dealership?

I don't have the -10 but I have the -09. You need to supply an email address in order to send it.

Thats just it you don't. I don't know how to do it any other way. I can't cut and paste it onto here. Others have done with no problems that I know of. It's just a case of do you want to take the chance. Have a good one.

#506 of 599 How to disconnect the downhill assist feature?
Mar 30, 2010 (5:57 pm)
I was wondering if anyone knows how to disconnect or remove the downhill assist feature from a 2009 Toyota Tacoma auto, V-6 TRD offroad Package, I don't use it, I never go off road, and I do believe this is why the transmissions have the annoying down shifts and not knowing when to shift correctly...maybe just a reprogramming issue? I don't know, but I really hate the way the transmissions hunt for the right gear to be in....any help would be great..thanks...

I went right to the dealer and they reprogrammed the transmission and it seemed to fix the problem, however it don't fix the downhill assist feature.. I still get a transmission that hunts for the correct gear, and get the occasional hard down shift. when going down a hill around 40-50mph. I have the 09 double cab 4x4 TRD offroad.
The dealer told me this is the correct way the transmission is set up..
