Takata recall I would like to know why this vehicle is not on the recall list . Does this truck have takata airbags? did takata make these bags safe but all others defective. This needs to be checked out as well. I do not feel safe because we have been hearing about these dangerous airbags for years yet this vehicle does not have the recall. Are you sure of their safety?!!.

Failure Date: 04/15/2017

Never received recall on the airbags? safety harness in the back seats where my rand kids ride will not tighten up. Leaf-springs bow up in the middle not down? have replaced u-joints more times then on my 97 Ford. Plus carrier bearings because of the leaf springs and stopped driving it because it goes back and forth on the road. My rear end howls and needs replaced because the rear end is higher then the tranny but there has been 7 recalls on this model and only found out about them on line. You must be doing a better job or your fired!!! lol but if you care I thank you but at least make them fix these safety issues, or at least make us aware of them instead of hiding them. Don't let them get away with ripping americans off . To do so is no better then them.

Failure Date: 01/25/2017

Many Toyotas were recalled because of the airbags but I don't understand why my truck was not. Last year my horn started to act up and someone at the Toyota repair center commented that it may be due to the airbags. Just to look at it there is a charge of over $100. 00 to repair it would cost me over $200. 00 now my horn works when when I push the panic button but not in the steering column. I thought I read that there were other vehicles in the same year that were recalled.

Failure Date: 01/09/2017

My husband and I were driving home on a snowy night when our car slipped and slid down an embankment almost into a river. Luckily, our car was stopped by a large boulder right at the waters edge. Unbeknownst to us at the time, we had stopped completely out of the water however we were not sure because every airbag in our car deployed, covering all of the windows. Immediately after we hit the boulder, we tried relentlessly to get out of both front doors as well as the back door, however we were unable to get to the door handles because the airbags did not deflate as they should have. At that point, my husband was able to rip through his front door airbag to reach the handle and get both of us out of the car safely. My biggest fear is that if we had ended up in the river we would have drowned due to malfunctioning airbags.

The pad assy steering part# 45130-04091-bo. Evidently the plastic contacts attached to the airbag assembly broke off and my horn was inoperable when another car drifted into my lane. Horn didn't work. Almost caused a severe accident. It worked sporadically for months, then another incident again when driver was texting on his phone and drifted again in traffic. I checked with Toyota service, they all know this is a problem with air bag pad assembley. I hardly use my horn, only when necessary, no driver over abuse here. I am concerned that these contact points break off in the cold weather. This is a real safety issue. I am concern that people will not report or are driving with no horn because it's so costly to replace air bag assembly. Injury and loss of life is real hear.

I was belted in and hit a street sign then a 6 foot tall straight up and down just about sand hill and then a tree. Impact was sufficient enough to brake my back for sudden stop. The accident was may 5, 2016 and it was a drunk driving accident but that shouldn't matter as I should have been stopped by airbag instead of snapping my back. . I have had serious memory loss due to prior medical conditions. I love Toyota but I believe something went terribly wrong that night as impact should have set off driver airbag. My passengers didn't buckle up but I did and I was hurt the worse. . Oh and yes I am expecting to hear from someone in your company or law firm to know if I need a lawyer or not. Thank you . .

Failure Date: 12/10/2015

Due to combination of the spiral cable design and characteristics unique to the chassis components of the Tacoma, steering wheel vibration (¿flutter¿) caused friction between the flexible flat cable (ffc) and the retainer in the spiral cable assembly in the steering wheel. This occurred in a ffc with sixteen-channel circuits and damaged certain circuits on the flat cable that provides connectivity to the driver¿s air bag module. As a result, connectivity was lost and the air bag warning lamp illuminated. In addition, the driver¿s air bag may have become deactivated, causing it to not deploy in the event of a crash. This could increase the risk of injury to the driver. The 2007 Toyota Tacoma with a ffc with seven channel-circuits have already been recalled for this problem. Indications of a developing problem was first noted through illumination of the airbag warning lamp illuminated after starting the vehicle and rotating the steering wheel. Vehicle mileage was approximately 125,000 miles at that time. Initially the lamp would cycle off and on with the frequency of the lamp in the on position increasing over time. This suggested that the loss of connectivity was a result of increased wear in certain circuits. Eventually the lamp would stay on continuously indicating that all connectivity was lost in the driver's airbag control module. Vehicle was taken to dealer for service at a mileage of 129,094 and the problem was corrected at a cost of $461. 83 plus tax.

Failure Date: 10/24/2015

I recently bought a 2015 Toyota Tacoma and straight off the back I noticed that the tired were not in good condition under specific circumstances. If there were some loose dirt or gravel on the road the tire would not grip causing me to slip for a split second. Ignoring the warning signs of my split second slips here and there I decided to go out in the rain with 4 wheel drive on. I felt confident because I have had many Tacoma's before and I trust Toyota. Low and behold I hydroplaned on an empty highway and crashed into the wall at 60 mph completely totaling my truck. Baffled by the incident I recounted my steps to see if I was at fault. Two hands on the wheel, gps on my phone, no car in sight and I'm the only one on the road. A little puddle on the highway almost cost me my life. I still love Toyota and I bought a 2016 Tacoma but I will say do not trust the 2015 stock Tacoma tires because it has no grip.
