2006 Toyota Tacoma Problems

Toyota Recall For Lower Ball Joint Issue

Toyota issued a recall on the lower ball joint due to the possibility of premature wear from improper finishing in production. The ball joints will be replaced under the recall. This recall applies to 2001-2004 models only. Please contact you local Toyota dealer to see if your vehicle is included.

The Amber Front Parking Light Lens May Crack

The amber front running lights, located in the head light assembly may melt or crack their lens. The correction at this time is to replace the head light assembly.

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

bought an o6 4x4 in 2008 had 26000 miles on it I have replaced rearend U joints condensor wheelbearing need to replace balljoint leafsprings on driver side which are broken and needs torque convertor. The truck now has 130000.This is my 2nd taco and the first one didnt give me any problem.I am really dissapointed in my truck.To bad they wont let you keep them for a 2 month test drive!
I see others had a problem with the air conditioner. At 65K miles, my compressor went. $2400 to fix it. My guess is that this is a common problem and I'd like to see Toyota step up. This is my third Toyota and first major problem. Other than that, it has been excellent purchase but the "bullet proof reputation for reliability" mentioned in advertisements is suspect at this point!
40,000 miles with only 3 short seasons of air conditioning and the air conditioner no longer works. Cost $200 at Toyota to tell me this. Then another $2,800 to repair!!
