When you try to drive over 40 mph, the steering wheel and car seems to drive very rough and bouncy. Never had any problems withit before, always drove very smooth and straight. overnight this seemed to happen. It has been very cold and lots of snow and drifts, don't know if this makes a diofference or not!

I would first check and see if you have a build up of off ice on the inside of the wheels. If this started all of a sudden it might also be a brake problem like I have run into in the last few weeks of bad weather. The duel caliper brakes had one caliper piston stick and let the brake pad be uneven causing a vibration in the front end. Sometimes it would release and work fine. Hope its the ice in your wheels, but if not I would take a look at brakes before spending a lot of money. Good luck and have a good day.

the speedometer/odometer problem sounds like the vehicle speed sensor, which is ususally found on your front wheels, the stalling out sounds like an unrelated problem, but i couldnt tell you where to start for that one
Throughout my experience with Toyota's I have found that several times the hubcaps have made some weird noises. Try removing your hubcaps and driving your vehicle. If the noise still persists please let me know and I can ask u some questions and try to help you with your problem.
steering column bearing sounds like a worn out steering column... jack the front wheels off the ground both sides relieve load on steering wheel to see if it lessens the amount of feel and noise, if it does it shoud be the column bearing, replace bearings or complete column,,, also try with the wheels off the ground and safely supported to manualy steer the wheels by hand and see if you feel in roughness or hear any noises,should some minor resistance but be smooth in it movement if everything suspension and steering component wise is in good working condition... please rate my help.. thanks...
The wheel having been rotated to the rear of the car would eliminate it as the problem. I believe you may have 'tweeked' something when you hit the curb. Have a front end alignment. This would reveal if anything was damaged when the curb was hit, and it might just be in need of an adjustment to solve the problem. If a component was damaged, the tech should know when doing the alignment. Let me know how you make out.
This is a communication error with the BIU (body integrated unit). Need to take to the dealer, possible that the ECU needs to be replaced to fix this issue. It should be covered under the federal emmission wrty.
We bought our H6 used under warranty and had the problem the day it was delivered. Brought it in to the dealer and the diagnosed it as the throttle position sensor. It is an electronic component that works in conjuction with the fuel delivery system and it is faulty, it cannot tell what position the gas pedal is in, and therefore is randomly picking power settings.
We had it replaced, and never a problem since.
There are other possibilites to your problem, and this was our solution.
Hope that helps.
