CalgaryTacoma Dependability & quality far from previous years. juin 23, 2018 TRD Sport 4x4 Double Cab
Overall Score
I’ve owned numerous Toyota’s over the years. This is my 4th pick up. I purchased this 2007 Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4 double cab new end of Dec 2006. All maintenance records are available. I like the style, look, ride & performance. However I’ve found the dependability isn’t what it once was and a good dealership is hard to find when it comes to the service aspect. Replaced Rear differential @ 30145 K, both rear shocks @ 33723 K, Transmission mount @ 47574 K, Wheel bearing assemblies both sides Front @ 155792 K, Wheel bearing assemblies both sides Rear @ 157227 K that’s just over $3100. To replace all wheel bearings… and get this the front brakes haven’t been replaced on this truck, very sad that wheel bearing assemblies would have to be changed before the front brake pads. Engine oil leak, several complaints of an oil leak RH side front of the engine about leak while under warranty couldn’t be found, once off warranty, the dealer found the leak at engine front cover. This is a big buck job to repair. Compass / outside temp gauge quit. Both rear park brake cables broke at the backing plate, prior to the need to replace the rear brake shoes. Other than that I still own this 07 Tacoma that is mainly an HI-way driver and currently at 221300 k

On certain vehicles, an oil passage in the rotor of the vacuum pump may not have been machined properly and could result in oil not being distributed throughout the pump. This could lead to the illumination of a warning light and message, an audible tone, and a sudden loss of braking assist, which could increase stopping distances and increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will replace the vacuum pump with a new one.

On certain vehicles, the electrical power cords of some dealer installed block heaters may have been improperly manufactured, causing the wires to contact each other, resulting in a short circuit. A short circuit could lead to a fire which would increase the risk of injury and/or damage to property. Correction: For vehicles where the subject block heater was approved for installation, the dealer will replace the block heater assembly with a new one of an improved design. For vehicles where the subject block heater was not approved for installation, dealers will remove the block heater assembly. In the interim, until the remedy can be performed, dealers will cut the plug end from the block heater cord to disable the block heater's operation.

On certain vehicles, the seal between the rear differential and the axle housing could degrade due to contact variation. This could result in leaking differential oil. If the vehicle is operated in this condition, damage to the differential could occur, and could potentially result in noise, reduced motive power and rear axle lockup. These issues could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect the rear differential for leaks. If no leaks are found, fastening nuts will be re-tightened. If leaks are found, the differential gasket will be replaced, and new differential fastening nuts installed. Note: This applies to vehicles equipped with automatic transmission and non-locking differentials only.

On certain vehicles, the leaf springs in the rear suspension could fracture due to stress and corrosion. If this were to occur, the broken leaf could move out of position and contact surrounding components, including the fuel tank. If the broken leaf were to contact the fuel tank repeatedly, it could puncture the fuel tank. This could result in a fuel leak which, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will replace the rear leaf spring assemblies with improved ones.

On certain vehicles equipped with an optional tonneau cover where the front-most panel can be opened with the vehicle ignition key, the lock cylinder could bind. If the lock cylinder were to bind in the open position, the panel may not remain closed and the tonneau cover assembly could separate from the vehicle while it is being driven.

On certain four wheel drive vehicles, the joint portion of the drive shaft may include a component that developed cracks during the manufacturing process. These cracks may eventually lead to separation of the drive shaft resulting in the shaft contacting the road. This situation could lead to a loss of control causing property damage, personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace the front drive shaft if necessary.

On certain vehicles, the accelerator pedal may become stuck in the wide open position due to an unsecured or incompatible driver's floor mat. A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death. Correction: Dealers will reconfigure the shape of the accelerator pedal. Certain models will also have the shape of the floor underneath the accelerator pedal modified and/or a brake override system installed.

On certain vehicles, the tire bead may have been damaged due to improper assembly of the tires onto the wheels. If the vehicle is operated in this condition, there is a possibility that a bulge may be formed on the sidewall and/or may leak from the area of the damaged bead. The loss of air pressure will cause the tire to run under-inflated and may result in early failure causing a vehicle crash. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if required, replace the tires.

On certain vehicles, a manufacturing issue with the front lower ball joint could result in premature wear. If the vehicle is operated for an extended period of time in this condition, the ball joint may eventually experience excessive wear and looseness, resulting in increased steering effort, reduced vehicle self-centering and noise in the front suspension. In extreme cases, when the driver continues to operate the vehicle in this condition, the lower ball joint may separate from the knuckle causing a loss of vehicle steering control. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front lower ball joints.

On certain vehicles, the end lock nut (jam nut) of the parking brake operation wire may not have been secured properly to the parking brake assembly bracket due to insufficient torque control during the assembly process. If the vehicle is driven for an extended period in this condition, the lock nut and parking brake cable adjusting nut could potentially come loose. In the worst case, the lock nut may fall off and the adjusting nut can loosen, which may result in excessive free play in the parking brake pedal. This could lead to insufficient parking brake actuation. Correction: Dealers will re-tighten the parking brake lock nut to the proper torque.
