2012 Toyota Tacoma Problems

I got rid of my 2009 Taco because of noise during nonacceleration around 70 mph. I'll be darned if the 2011 doesn't do it also! Come to find out that it is a known problem that they didn't tell me about until I had traded vehicles. It is a serious rattle during times of slack accelerator pedal at higher speeds.

2012 Toyota Tacoma Recalls

The brake system contains an actuator that adjusts the fluid pressure to the brake at each wheel. An electrical component inside the actuator may experience an increased electrical resistance resulting in the illumination of various warning lights, including those for the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system, Antilock Brake System (ABS), and Traction Control system. As a result, these systems may not function as expected, reducing directional control assistance and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software for the Skid Control module to correct this concern.

Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is recalling certain vehicles equipped with 18" Maverick Alloy Wheels. The spare wheel requires a different style of lug nut to attach it to the vehicle. These lug nuts were not supplied when the vehicle was first sold. Use of the incorrect lug nuts when mounting the spare wheel can cause it to loosen over time, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will perform the following remedy for this concern: Install a Warning Label on the spare tire/wheel, supply a bag containing proper spare wheel lug nuts, place an Owner's Manual Addendum in the vehicle's glove box.

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.
