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.
At higher mileages (125,00+) the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor may intermittently stop working, especially when the vehicle is fully warmed up. This can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light and/or an engine stalling problem.
