Q: My truck leans towards the driver's side

asked by on

My truck has a one half to three quarter inch lean towards the driver side. The whole body leans. The dealership has contacted Toyota about it. Any idea what could be the cause?

Since your vehicle is brand new, it sounds like some kind of design flaw. I did some searching online and found you are not the only Tacoma owner to have this issue. It sounds like your local dealer is taking care of this for you, which is a good thing.
