 The air bag light in the dash board came on at about 48,000 miles. there was no crash or any related incident that could have caused it to come on. there should be a recall for this factory related defect. i hope this complaint will help for a future recall or a solution to this problem.

 The air bag light came on while driving. my passenger looked it up in the manual and it stated that the vehicle was to be returned to the dealership as soon as possible for maintenance. the problem turned out to be the spiral cable for the air bag had broken. this is a huge safety issue, as the air bag will not deploy when this cable breaks. fortunately for me, this happened prior to the expiration of the warranty for passenger restraints, as i see this is a pretty expensive repair. i have looked at this site as well as others and see this is a common problem, and have to wonder why there has not been a recall on this part. why aren't safety features always covered in all cars, as long as they are on the road?

 The air bag light on my 2007 toyota tacoma prerunner double cab 4x2 came on and will not go off. the toyota dealership planned to charge me $115 to diagnose the problem. they did not recognize the code and charged me $59.50 stating that they would call back after speaking with technical support. later they said the problem is the spiral cable and quoted me $562.44 to replace it. the problem occured in july 2011 at 59,000 miles. i plan to fix it soon for 2 reasons: my life is worth more than $562 and i believe in virginia the light needs to be off to pass the yearly state inspection. this is definately a recall and a safety issue, the dealership let me know when i took my truck in that the airbag will not deploy without fixing this issue. my truck is practically still new, i have never had an issue like this before with any of my other vehicles.

 Driving my 2007 toyota tacoma (v6, 4-wd, automatic, access cab), i experienced sudden unintended acceleration as i was turning from w. seventh avenue in eugene, oregon onto northbound interstate-105. i was traveling at a safe rate of speed (approx. 20 mph) as i made the turn from the surface street to the left-hand, curving, on-ramp which is the beginning of an elevated freeway structure. it was mid-morning and, although there had been some light rain overnight, the pavement was dry. about halfway through the curve the tacoma inexplicably accelerated. the rear of the truck swung out to the left at which point it was moving sideways up the on-ramp. the front of the truck jumped the curb and the truck proceeded 20-30 feet sideways along the curb and eventually slid up a concrete wall where the curb transitions to the bridge rail of the elevated structure. just short of the start of the actual bridge railing the front right wheel and fender struck a tree. at this point, the vehicle bounced back, continued to rotate to the left and came to a rest, straddling the transition wall, having turned 150-170 degrees. at this point i realized the motor was still racing and i switched the engine off. my foot was on the brake pedal. the air bags did not deploy. no one was injured, no other vehicles were involved. police were called to provide traffic control while the vehicle was removed from the scene but no report was filed. i have lived within two-and-a-half miles of this intersection for more than 36 years. i have been through this intersection thousands of times as a private citizen and in my role as a transportation planner. i have been and am baffled by this incident. the collision damage was repaired. other than that all parts are original. original equipment toyota floor mats had been removed previously. *tr

 2007 toyota tacoma 4x4 ext cab pickup. on 12/5/09 i hit an icy patch and went off road and hit a tree. traveling approx 40 mph. no airbags deployed. hit the tree in the exact center of the hood of truck. vehicle was a total loss. subsequent inquiries to toyota have resulted in two explanations for non-deployment. a) airbags are designed to go off on rapid deceleration (i told them i hit a tree) b) airbags are designed to go off when the engine breaches the firewall and enters the cab (i told them if the engine was coming into the cab, i would be screwed) they sent me a nhtsa airbag brochure that pretty much told me what i already know about airbags and totally contradicted what they told me about airbags. i know there was a recall of 05 & 06 mechanisms. maybe i got an early 07 that used one. i don't know. i am not buying a toyota anymore. *tr

 Accelerator seemed to stick under normal driving conditions... engine revs would not go to normal idle even in neutral... brakes would not stop the vehicle at the high revs... only solution was to put the car in neutral and shut the engine off... after working the gas pedal while in park, the engine idle speed went back to normal... *tr
