2013 Toyota Tacoma Problemsnoise in drivetrain
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.

2013 Toyota Tacoma RecallsSpare Tire Information Misstated On Tire Plackard
The spare tire size and air pressure may be misstated on the tire placard sticker located on the vehicle. This can lead to improper air being inflated in the spare tire, which could result in tire failure. Owners can install replacement stickers as mailed to them, or seek the assistance of a dealer free of charge to resolve the concern.
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.
The engine in the vehicles being recalled may have been assembled with valve springs that can break over time. If a valve spring were to break the engine could fail and/or stall unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the valve springs in the affected engines to correct this concern.
