Brakes On Vehicle Lock-up And Are Overly Sensitive. On Many Occasions When Driving On Wet Pavement At Slows Speeds The Abs Engaged And Locked The Brakes With Only Very Light Pressure On The Brake Pedal. On One Occasion When Driving At 10-15 Mph In A Parking Lot In Snow, A Light Touch To The Brake Locked Up The Brakes Causing The Vehicle To Become Unstable And Crash. I Have Had Four Other toyota Trucks, Three Of Them tacomas And None Of Them Had This Braking Issue. Barely Pressing The Brakes Shouldn’t Cause Them To Lock Up Which Causes The Vehicle To Become Very Unstable. Luckily It Does It More Often At Low Speeds. It’s A Major Safety Concern As The Vehicle Becomes Undrivable.

Vehicle was involved in a crash. Mileage was 82000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5TFUU4EN1CX. TOYOTA TACOMA 2012 problem was reported in RENO, NV. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 10 mph.

This Has Been Going On Since My Purchase In 2012. Thankfully I Have Not Been In An Accident Due To This But Lots Of Close Calls. toyota Refuses To Resolve This Issue, And Denys That It Happens.

Check Engine Light Came On And Vehicle Was Not Going Past 2k Rpm And Over 20mph. Connected To An Onboard Diagnostic Reader Which Gave Me Codes P2440 And P2442- Secondary Air Injection Valve Stuck Open Bank 1 & 2. Vehicle Has Less Than 50,000 Miles And Only 4 Years Old And toyota Does Not Cover Faulty Equipment Under Any Warranty (powertrain Or Federal Emissions) Although They Have Issued Canada Tsb 3861 Acknowledging The Deficiency, But Leaving The Owner To Pay $645.00 For The Replacement Part From toyota Dealer. This Is Unsatisfactory- They Must Be Held Accountable For A Vehicle Still Within Powertrain (60,000mi) Or Federal Emission (80,000mi) Warranty.

Mileage was 2 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3TMMU4FN2CM. TOYOTA TACOMA 2012 problem was reported in BELMONT, CA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 20 mph.

As I’ve Read From Numerous Other 2012 tacoma Owners On tacomaworld.com, My Secondary Air Injection Switching Valve Has Failed At 65k Miles. This Seems To Be A Recurring Issue With All 2012 Similar tacoma Models And Should Absolutely Be Recalled And Replaced For Free! Until Fixed, My Truck Is Undrivable, Meaning The Cel Light Is On And The Truck Won’t Go Faster Than 30 Mph.

My 2012 toyota tacoma Prerunner 2wd Has 54,640 Miles. I Just Got A Check Engine Light And “trac Off” Light Yesterday. My Truck Would Accelerate To Just 25 Mph When Merging Onto The Interstate And Top Speed Was Around 50 Mph. This Is A Serious Safety Issue And toyota Will Not Cover This Known Problem Under The Standard 3 Year 36,000 Mile Warranty. Autozone Ran The Diagnostic Scan And Came Up With Trouble Codes P2440 And P2442. These Are Tied To The Secondary Air Injection System And Switching Valves. The toyota Dealership Said This Would Cost Me Close To $2000 To Repair. I Paid $30,000 For This Vehicle Brand New Just 4 Years Ago. This Needs To Become A Class Action Lawsuit So That A Safety Recall Is Issued For toyota To Repair This Known Defect For Free.

Mileage was 54640 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3TMJU4GN8CM. TOYOTA TACOMA 2012 problem was reported in ARLINGTON, TN. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 25 mph.

2012 tacoma With 37,00 Miles: While Leaving A Parking Lot And Trying To Accelerate On To A Busy Highway, (60mph Speeds), Truck Would Not Accelerate And “check Engine” And “trac Off” Lights Illuminated. Vehicle Went Into “limp Mode” And Would Not Go Faster Than 35 Mph. I Had To Quickly Pull Off The Road As To Not Cause An Accident. If This Had This Occurred While Traveling At Normal Highway Speed (60 Mph+), Would Definitely Be In A Wreck Due To The Sudden Downshift And Deceleration. I Took Vehicle To Local Auto Parts Store And Received The Code P2442: Secondary Air Injection System Switching Valve Stuck Open Bank 2. From Researching, This Is A Known Problem With 2012 tacomas, And Had Previously Been An Issue With Older Tundras, Which toyota Issued A Tsb For. toyota Refuses To Repair This Under Warranty (either Powertrain Or Federal Emissions) Even Though The Failed Part Is Directly Tied To The Emissions System! The System Is Used To Pump Additional Air Into The Exhaust Manifold Upon Startup To Dilute The Over-rich Conditions That Lead To Increased Pollution. (how Is That Not An Emissions Related Part?) The Failure Or Warping Of The One-way Check Valve Causes Hot Exhaust Gases To Backflow Into The Solenoid, And Melting The Gaskets. This Ends Up Blocking The Sealing Plate And Causing It To Remain In The Open Position. The Danger Is That The Hot Exhaust Is Then Fed Into A Plastic Air Pump Causing It To Potentially Melt Or Catch Fire! The Fact That This Forces The Vehicle Into “limp Mode” Is Also A Huge Safety Concern As It Will Not Allow The Vehicle To Travel Above 35 Mph And Could Lead To Serious Accidents If Traveling At High Speed On The Interstate Or Highway Due To The Unexpected, Sudden Deceleration. Failed Assembly Is toyota Part Number : 25710-31020. This Part Number Has Been Superseded By P/n: 25710-31022 And toyota Charges Between $1500-$3200 To Replace. *tr

Vehicle Was In Motion On Rainy, Wet Highway When Check Engine Light Went On And Traction Control Was Shut Off. The Secondary Air Injection Switching Valve Is Apparently Stuck Closed, Which For Some Reason Shuts Off The Traction Control. It Is My Understanding From Speaking With Other tacoma And Tundra Owners That Had The Valves Gotten Stuck Open, The Vehicle Goes Into “limp Mode” Which Automatically Decreases Speed To 20mph. Obviously, Either Of These Occurrences Are Particularly Unsafe In Rainy And Wet Conditions, And The Decrease In Speed Is Unsafe During Any Highway Traveling. This Is Apparently A Big Enough Issue On The Tundra Models For toyota To Extend The Warranty To 150,000mi, Yet They Have Done Nothing For The tacomas Which Have An Identical System And Parts.

Mileage was 99000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3TMLU4EN2CM. TOYOTA TACOMA 2012 problem was reported in MATAWAN, NJ. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 55 mph.

The Abs Actuates Prematurely During Cornering On Freeway On/off Ramps And In Corners Resulting In Suspension Dive, An Under Steer Condition, And Loss Of Vehicle Control. This Occurs When The Vehicle Is In Motion At Posted Speed Limits On Dry Pavement. I Have Contacted toyota/been To The Dealership Several Times About This Issue With No Resolution.
