New Guy from CT with a New to me '13

Hey folks, just wanted to pop in and say hello. Picking up a used 2013 LT with 48K on the ODO this week. Had a lemon with my BRAND NEW toyota tacoma which they purchased back, so GM here I come. I've been reading around the forum and just curious if you all could just give me a few things to look for on wednesday when I pick it up? It has the 2.4 motor and when I test drove it the rear hatch lift struts were a bit corroded on the actual strut themselves not the body or mounts. The dealer is replacing both of them as well as doing their "shop service" which I assume means they put some dino oil in it a do their quick detail.

Thanks for the help!!

just realized I posted in the wrong section, maybe a mod can move it for me?

Thanks!!


Joe

So what was wrong with the Tacoma ? Was looking at them earlier. What years was it?

2016 TRD off road 4x4, trans issues out the wazoo. 5X to the dealer without a fix. Reprogrammed the computer twice and drained the trans. It's an issue toyota is WELL AWARE of with no fix on the way. They told me that my expectations are too high for the truck and it was operating as it should....

they bought it back with all interest and payments.

I've heard the New Tacomas did have a bit of a problem before with the transmissions. Heard someone have to let the dealer to do the reprogramming or something like that. Not sure how those 8 speeds on the other Toyotas are going to be as it is the first time they're upgrading from 6 speed to 8 speed.

Cterrain, I'm located in bristol. The tacoma was a good truck, it just had its issues that toyota wanted no part of. The CT Technical representative that was assigned my case said he's seen more than 15 of them come in and through the lemon law process, mine was hands down the worst.
