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.
Substantial frontal impact without air bag deployment or seatbelt pre-tensioners being activated. T- bone accident with front impact to my Tacoma at 45 mph highway speed impacting the rear axle of a full sized pick-up.

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.

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.
Rear passenger door does not have welded in window stops. Glass could shatter and airbag could deploy.

I took my vehicle in for the Toyota's recall for the spiral cable. The failure light was not on. A few months after I got the vehicle back the failure light can on. Toyota said the spiral cable had failed and wanted $700 plus to replace it. I am guessing they did not fix the vibration that was causing the problem so the system failed again. Toyota should have fixed the vibration and left the spiral cable alone. The original cable was not causing a problem. They have refused.

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.

Takata recall should be extended to 2011 Toyota Tacoma. The horn stopped working so I took the car into a Toyota certified mechanic. They said this was caused by spiral cable problem with the air bag in the steering wheel. They had seen this problem several times before and said it was a known issue for them with the Toyota Tacoma, but not covered by a recall yet. Given that this is a known manufacturing defect - and results in a potentially life threatening air bag failure, the air bags should be recalled and replaced without cost to the owners. The problem developed over many months as the horn became increasingly intermittent until it completely stopped working.
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.

A truck pulled out in front of me at intersection rt 46 on 07/31/13. I went to beep the horn and it didn't work. I wasn't able to confirm problem because very busy till 11/04/13. Confirmed problem caused by faulty spiral cable within the steering wheel. As per conversation with Toyota 1-800-331-4331 on 11/04/13 (case #1311040283) to have dealer confirm problem with as I understood would warranty part only, problem confirmed by dealer 12/09/13,Toyota, [xxx] called declined goodwill warranty. I replaced spiral cable at my expense, horn now works. The spiral cable also contain within it wires for steering radio controls, the air bag and the horn. As bad weather approached the lack of a working horn became a huge safety issue. Toyota recalled all 05 to 09 (495,000 ) Tacoma for the same part# spiral cable ( airbag ) information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6).
