Transform the way your 2016 Toyota Tacoma Drives – Here’s How
Does your 2016 Tacoma equipped with an automatic transmission seem a little bit off? Does it hunt for gears while cruising sometimes, or when you are on a slight incline? Have you felt that the cruising RPMs are a bit higher than you would have expected? Is there a delayed engagement shifting from Park to Drive or into Reverse? What about skipped shifts, slipping transmission and lurching? If you have had any of these issues, read on.
Toyota has issued a Technical Service Bulleting (TSB) 0077-16 that can transform the way the transmission in the 2016 Tacoma operates. Reviews from owners that have had the service performed are mainly positive, with many being entirely positive. Torque News reviewed forums, clubs, and Youtube videos discussing the results of the TSB and our favorite was the one below from Taco Bandit.
Although the TSB documentation from Toyota lists only a few issues, owners are reporting the fix solves more problems with the transmission. Taco Bandit summed up his truck’s driving experience overall after the TSB by saying “It actually does feel like an all-new truck. It’s very very pleasant to drive now.”
If your Tacoma is having problems shifting in any way, it would be well worth your time to have the truck looked at and ask if TSB 0077-16 might be applicable to your truck. Please note that manual Tacomas are not included (in case that was not obvious). If you have had the TSB done to your Tacoma, we would love for you to place a comment below to help other owners.
