problem #2

Jun 012017

Tacoma Pre-Runner 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles

Same as others - Car CEL and Trac Off lights come on and engine put into limp mode. Won't accelerate and has an issue with the secondary air injection system.

Have seen so many others have this issue and it costs them $2500 to fix. This needs to be a recall from Toyota.

air injection valve & pump assembly failure

Bought truck new - had ALL recommended maintenance done at dealership. Now suddenly we get a $1968.29 repair bill for a vehicle that has never been off road, never been abused, and primarily used for commuter.

Toyota has stood behind other models like the Sequoia and the Tundra with recalls and reimbursements for same problem - why not the Tacoma!

A new vehicle with a proven record of all maintenance should not have a $2000.00 failure at 64,000 miles!!!
