The A/C Button Light was flashing. It did it for a couple of weeks, and then when the flashing started the A/C would stop. I had to help them diagnose by using (2) autoforum feedback suggestions. The flashing light was diagnostic, but the Toyota AutoNation dealership did not want to make the diagnosis. I had to use the autoforum feedback and create an e-mail and send it to the service writer to start a written record of the bullshit. The problem was intermittent at first and they would not address it because they couldn't re-create it. The problem arrived 2 months before the warranty ran out - and then it turned out that the A/C compressor had failed along with the sensor. They had to get parts from a dealership in Jacksonville, that dragged the mess out for another 3 days. I am so grateful for autoforums and e-mail to stop the utter rape that dealerships try to get away with.

Dealer replaced defective TPMS sensor Excessive wind noise when driving in high crosswind. Loud, and screeching like a kazoo. Toyota has a TSB addressing this problem, but the dealer did not want to fix it. After a "intense discussion" they agreed to replace the seal on the drivers door with the new TSB version, but declined to replace the passenger door seal. Even though the TSB is for both doors! TPMS light on the dash randomly illuminates (indicating a problem) when there is no problem. Because the light was not lit when I visited the dealer they said there was nothing they could do to repair it.

Went in for NH state inspection. First thing, tech went for a road test. Hmm, a bit unusual. Turns out the Taco failed because, according to service manager, of the lower steering column shaft is rusted and binding up, not allowing steering to return to center when driving. Got a second opinion from different shop, different diagnosis! He said steering rack, not column shaft. Replaced rack, got inspection, Taco steers great! I’ve since learned, these are problem areas on Tacomas....

Valve covers leaking on both sides. Shop replaced seals. Tie rod end became damaged. It was replaced. Rack and pinion assembly had rusted out and needed replacement. Shop performed replacement and alignment. Both front bearings were in need of replacement. The front of the vehicle was experiencing severe vibrations. It was determined that the combination of had bearings, bent tie rod, and rusted out and loose rack and pinion were causing the vibrations. Vibrations were felt during acceleration. It was determined the carrier bearing for the driveshaft and the rearmost driveshaft U-joint required replacement. All of these parts were replaced. Bushings on both of the front lower control arms had worn out. Both LCAs were replaced. To fix the cruise control, I replaced the steering clock spring.
