Toyota Motor Corporation Informative - 2006 Tacoma TRD 4X4 4.0L 6 speed
GEORGIA -- Last month the clutch pressure plate went out in my 2006 Tacoma. Toyota refused to warranty this so i had my truck towed to a local transmission shop who agreed to replace this for half of what the dealer wanted. when the transmission shop received the new clutch and pressure plate they called me to come look at the new parts they received from Toyota. The clutch and pressure plate were completely redesigned. After some research I found out Toyota changed this part # in 2006 after I purchased my truck.
Even though I found other complaints of failure and have proof of a part change Toyota denies changing this part or that there was a problem.Toyota has offered no assistance in the $1300 it cost to repair my 2006 truck.
