I have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. I took it to my local Toyota dealer in August to address the recalls needing to be done. They tell me they are backed up trying to get recalls fixed. It is now November and have not been called yet. Now the leaf springs are on recall. I replaced one leaf spring in September 2014 due to it snapping. Will I get reimbursed from Toyota for this repair?? I have not heard from my local Toyota dealer as to when they can fix the recalls, they said they will call me when they can get me in. What year will that be? will my second leaf spring snap and puncture the tank before it gets repaired? or will the frame possible rust out and fall on the leaf springs. . . . . . . I love Toyota Tacomas, disappointed in the follow thru/timeliness on fixing these problems.

Failure Date: 02/03/2014

The spiral cable failed. The spiral cable connects the horn button and driver's airbag to the rest of the car. When it fails, the airbag and horn won't work. Toyota already recalled the spiral cable on '05-'09 Tacoma's. The spiral cables are still failing, so they need to recall later years and fix them too.

The airbag (srs) light started blinking. A little research has uncovered this to be a common problem. I would think a recall would be in order due to the potential for serious injury if the system did not function in an accident. Why has a recall not been issued?.

2006 Toyota Tacoma. . At 95000 mi srs light has come on and has stayed on I have tried my best to rule out any causes and cant come up with anything. I do know that this has been an ongoing problem with these trucks. I cannot afford to take this truck to the dealer right now so I am driving without protection. . Toyota is aware of this particular issue and wont do anything even though this is clearly a major safety issue.

Srs inidcator light appeared on dashboard. I drove 100 miles to nearest dealer who could dignose airbag issues. I was told the spiral cable failed and therefore needed to be replaced. Quoted $400 for part, plus 1. 5 hrs of labor, so a total near $600. Called Toyota and they told me "sorry!" but would do nothing about it. I've been driving without a working air bag for almost 2 months now, simply bc I can't afford $600 for something I didn't break. Mileage was near 90000 miles when srs light came on. From reading this website, obviously a recall is needed. Toyota just announced a similar issue (spiral cable) recall for the 2006 highlander, so I'm assuming the Tacoma is next in line! if not, it will be hefty lawsuit when airbags aren't deploying bc of an "oversight" from Toyota.

Srs light is on at all times when vehicle is on. There was no cause, it simply came on. It does not seem to effect the vehicle, however, I am greatly concerned that my vehicles safety features are faulty and may not protect me in the event of a vehicle accident. I have done nothing to correct the issue other than research online and communicate with other owners of the same vehicle. There are many other instances of this problem and I feel there needs to be a safety recall by Toyota.

2nd time a gas pedal stuck on my 2005 Toyota Tacoma truck leading to a 2nd collision with property damage to my truck & the car in front of me. Coming up to a red light with plenty of room to stop on a flat rd. There where skid marks from my truck and I had both feet on the brake and the engine increased inspeed. The dealer still does not have the parts to repair this problem even after my first accident in June of last year and again in July of this year. Toyota said they would turn it over to there legal dept. And the truck was to be inspected by a engineering firm from the west. The inspection firm was in a hurry to inspect the truck and called in July now they won't return my calls. This firm was hired by Toyota. Also during the repair it was found that the air bag had shorted out and did not deploy. If you have one of Toyota's trucks on the recall list be very careful and don't expect any help from the dealer or Toyota fixing the problem. As I said it is the 2nd time for both items to fail.
