At the opposite end of the spectrum, top gear could be a little higher allowing for better gas mileage on the freeway. In fact there was a factory rep there that day discussing the same. All from the same dealership and sales person. It feels like it is missing or slipping. It gets horrible gas mileage because it can never find a comfortable gear in cruise control to stay at.

Oil may leak from the area where the rear differential carrier is assembled to rear axle housing. I haven't had any of the constantly shifting problems at all. Street ability is incredibly upgraded by the programmed slip differential and electronically-controlled exchange case.
But only happens there when engine and trans is cold. Lame fabric on the dash. For all things Toyota Tacoma. I admit, I was a little worried about buying the 6-speed manual V6 Toyota Tacoma after reading about all the conflicting stories on the Tacoma forums.

It was a pronounced weak point with the previous truck, called out by everyone in sibling website PickupTrucks.
Wish I had my money and other truck back. They my truck might take up to 8 weeks to fix, its been close to 4 weeks so far. Anyways…… 2016 Tacoma just hit 10,000 miles, doing same thing I think.

My kids 2004 Ford Ranger is fun to drive and would crush this truck. And he most certainly was not putting any notes in the computer to send to Toyota.
