problem #2

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • 1,500 miles
2010 Toyota Tacoma 6cyl. - when stopped at traffic lights and the heater or air conditioner is on, the truck lunges forward intermittently. When this happens, it feels like someone has hit me from behind. No one is there and the RPM gauge has gone from the normal 0.5 rpms to 1 RPM on its own. I have been watching this problem and I find that it only happens when the heater or air conditioner is on. It does not happen when these components are off. Happened about 12 times now.

problem #1

  • 500 miles
2010 Toyota Tacoma base model 2 door small pickup truck. When driving into sun and when raining windshield appears to be etched causing a blinding glare. Dealership attempted to clean it inside and out and then gave the explanation that all the 2010 Tacoma they have this same problem. 2 different drivers of our particular Tacoma have been blinded by this apparent defect with close calls resulting. Please investigate. Thank you.
