I've just had my 2012 Tacoma towed to the dealership due to the truck not shifting into reverse correctly. I first noticed a problem when I was driving home and the RPMs would get up to between 3 and 4 and it felt as if the gears weren't changing properly. I shifted back into neutral and then into drive again and everything seemed to be going fine.
Then I pulled into a parking spot and later attempted to put it in reverse and pull out. The truck acts like it's in neutral when put in reverse (I can put the gear shift in reverse but the gear is not changing).
What could be going wrong?
- 2WD 6 cyl
- Truck is < 1 year old
- Has ~ 14,000 miles on it
- Has had regular scheduled maintenance on time for the last year.
Update: The tow truck guy just called and said that he "jerked" the truck while it was attached to the chain on the tow and was able to put it in reverse. I'll still have the dealership look at it tomorrow.
Update 2: Yep, the entire transmission is being replaced.
