I own a 2005 Tacoma Access Cab. It is 5 speed manual transmission. I recently had the steering column replaced. Now ever now and then the truck won't start. It makes no noise when the switch is turned. Toyota can't find the problem. Sometimes I push it in second gear(pop the clutch) to start it.
Sometimes I can wait 10 minutes and it will start. It might start 30 or more times without a problem. Then all of a sudden it won't start again. I thought that maybe there is a short in the new column ignition switch. But another (not a Toyota person) said they didn't think that was the problem. Has anyone got an idea on what I need to do? This is the 4th Toyota pickup I have owned. And this is the only one I have had problems with. In case someone wants to send me an email direct here is my contact info: [email protected]

I have a 2005 Tacoma Crew Cab and 2008 Sequoia, I have been a Toyota fan for a long time. My family's first Toyota was a '73 Corolla and my family has had or still have (bold) many others: Truck (83), Celica (83&90), Corolla (73,80,83,88), Land Cruiser (00), Forerunnner (94,09), Tacoma (05), Sequoia (08), Lexus Rh 350 (07,08), Lexus IS300 (05) and a few others I forgot. All ran strong till we sold them, several had over 200k miles.

Please don't let my name fool you, I am a reformed man, I used to beat up my wife, but not anymore, I have completly recovered from my condition, I use the name to remind and punish me for my wrongs in the past.
Just got a new 2011 Tacoma DC 4x4 V6 man 6 speed
I was a former full size truck owner and I was getting tired of it sucking gas and I expect gas prices to increase more and more, so I got out while the getting was good.
This Tunda site got my attention, cause the Toyota Dealer was trying to sell me a Tundra instead of the Tacoma for around the same price, but I wanted the truck for the good gas mileage and he kept telling me the Tundra , Tacoma get the same gas mileage. I didn't believe him and I read enough on this site to make sure he was BS'ing me.
I LOVE my Tacoma, its a truck that feels like driving a car, its easy to park, its almost fun to drive, the brakes work (never owned a full size truck with good brakes) and the power of the V6 is better than I expected.
I am now getting around 15 mpg, but i expect higher gas mileage as it breaks in and the weather gets warmer,
Very Happy Owner!

Glad to be joining you...I just purchased a sweet '08 Tundra CrewMax SR5 4X4 to replace my beaten FX4 SuperCrew. Glad to be back in a Toyota (had a '92 4x and '98 Tacoma 4X). This thing is a BEAST (according to my son). This is my semi-daily driver (mostly hunting truck) and I'm damn glad to have it. I've been envious of the new Tundras since they came out. This is just one awesome truck.

Re: New Tacoma

Hey all just picked up a 2004 Tacoma this past Saturday. Its an Xtracab 3.4L with the TRD package. Looks like a nice board you have here.
I was thinking of buying a new '05, but this one runs and looks so good I'm not sure if I'd ever want to part with it. It currently has 143,000 miles, and many many more to go. I would be interested to see how many miles a person can get out of the 2.7L motor, it seems to be a very "solid" engine for Toyota.

Welcome to the board! The hilux is definitely a vehicle many people in the US want to get their hands on. I've seen that video before and it's amazing what they put that truck through. Again welcome and enjoy!
happy to see a new member onboard TS.com, please feel free to post on this thread and introduce yourself. If you have recently purchased a new Tacoma, pop a post and tell us about your new ride.

Hi, Taco owner here!

Southern California, and not my first Toy. Unfortunately, I was forced to sell my 02 Tundra to facilitate my 5th wheel sale. :sad3d: I like my new 2010 Taco, but the V6 just doesn't have the torque the V8 did.

I still have my 72 1/2 HiLux in the back yard! I'm going to graft a 22R into it.

Re: New Member

hello, i am first time Toyota owner. I have always driven Fords but my friend made me a deal I could not pass up on a 06 Taco Quad Cab 4x4 4.0V6 AT with 140000 miles, $4000, not a bad deal at all. Most everything is in great shape on the truck, new brakes and front end parts. new 8ply tires,timing belt and trans fluid changed before, (these will be done again soon.) the bad, front axle actuator out, $400 holy $hit! thats high, and the suspension, especially the rear is horrible. From what I have read on here, It seems that at one time there was a recall for new 4pack rear leafs and shocks. I asked my buddy if he ever brought it in for any of the recalls and he said no. so i go down the my local Toyo dealership, and they say that there is no open recall for my truck? am I screwed? was there a expiration on the harsh ride recall? thanks for all the help anf info

Bought Tundra in August 2011 from a friend because of a wreck, had 146,000 miles on it, still running strong and smooth! Hope to gain information since this is my first Toyota product and try my best to give what little knowledge I have.

Hello everyone. Joined up a few weeks ago, since I figured I would be using this site a lot. Just upgraded on late feb 2012 from a 2002 Tacoma double cab, to a new 2012 Tundra double cab work truck.

Big jump from a 2.7 to a 4.6 and so far I am loving it!

Looking forward to learning on this forum.

Traded the 2010 Tundra for a 2112 TRD Sport DC Tacoma on Sat. Like having a smaller truck again. Now I'm reading up on all the Tacoma stuff I'v been missing. I know that a redo of the Taco platform is coming soon, but I like this new truck a lot. You'll be seeing me on this forum a lot now, read a lot, post just a little.

Re: New Member

Hey guys, So after much debating about getting a new tundra or tacoma I decided to get a 2012 4x4 DC sr5 tow package standard bed taco. A friend from another motorcycle forum told me to check this out. So far I think my decision was pretty good considering the deal I got. Just couldn't buy a tundra since they lose so much value over the years.

Only thing so far is the front seats aren't very comfortable compared to my last truck but hey its a truck. Overall the only thing I would add is a navigation system but don't want to replace the oem stereo since it has bluetooth in it.

Anyone have any break in recommendations, and an online store that has good deals/reputable for taco accessories?

Also I heard the tailgate can only take 200lbs load? It doesn't seem very strong just wondering if I should take it off when I load a sportbike in.
