What kind of Michelin tires did you put on your truck. I just bought a 2013 Texas Edition and noticed a little vibration on Passenger side . They said it needed to be align and balanced. Fixed the problem temporary but it has come back. I will be taking it again tomorrow and glad I found all this complaints on this forum and where to go from here. thanks

Jan 12, 2013 (9:57 am)
I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma Crew cab Pre Runner TRD. I had a vibration while driving as well as on acceleration. This started around 40k miles and got to where I could not stand it at 50k. I narrowed it down to the center carrier barring or the U joints. It turns out it was the rear u joints. pins were gone in 2 of the 4. I replaced and haven't had a problem untill recently at 90k. I suspect the same thing. I do use the truck for light towing of a yard trailer but nothing over 3000lbs. My advise is to check the u joints first, You will have to get up close and personal to check each one with a flash light. Simply checking for play in drive shaft my not identify the problem. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info on the drive line. I have 62K on my 03 Tacoma 4x4 extended cab. I still have the vibration between 40-60. When I get new tires this year, if the vibration is still exists, I'll check those u-joints. Did you know that the grease for the u-joints is not just the regular grease they use on the rest of the chassis? Check your owners manual for the right kind.

Yes, that's a very common noise, and it's apparently the ABS doing some sort of self-diagnostic. Louder on some vehicles than on others. Toyota considers it to be "Normal." Yeah, go figure....

I just got a 2010 Tacoma and I noticed the same thing right away. Terrible noise! I'm surprised there aren't more posts about this. This is NOT a noise that just about every car on the road makes, I've never heard anything like it (I'm 38). Is there anything that can be done about it?
