Just got done talking to toyota and they are claiming that the deadline for ALL 2001-2004 tacomas was on 12/31/11 FOR REPAIR. They are doing nothing about my death trap and over 620,000 other death trap on the roads today.(620,000 that's how many they claimed to have made from those years of production) They told me that they are taking no responsiblity for the frame that there own reps. have deemed undrivable and not safe. They are also not notifying any CURRENT OWNERS that own tacomas that they maybe driving around in a rusted out frame. I will be going to the local news with all the findings that I've received through NHTSA, the federal trade commision, and the ohio att. general, lemon law lawyers,. I will take to every media outlet avaiable (youtube, facebook, twitter, craiglist, websites) to make toyota face up to these very dangerous safety concerns.
The thing that I don't understand is that toyota knows they have unclaimed frames that HAVE NOT BEEN inspected through there own website(you type in your vin and it pops up all the things that have not been performed on the vechicle). The website is set up for people to find out that they may have a death trap that they are driving around in ,(and by the way these people have families that are riding with them). They are risking there own lifes as well as other americans lifes. THATS IS A VERY SCARY THOUGHT THAT CURRENT TACOMA OWNERS DON'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT THE FRAME WARRARANTY, RUSTY FRAMES, DANGERS THAT MY OCCUR WHILE DRIVING UNLESS THEY HAVE STUMBLE UPON TOYOTA'S WEBSITE BECAUSE TOYOTA IS NOT INFORMING THE CURRENT OWNER(IF YOUR THE SECOND OR THIRD OR FOURTH OR FIFTH OR....). And THE VERY VERY SCARY THOUGHT IS if you happen to find out that your tacomas frame has rusted out, Toyota will do nothing to fix the problem NOW. I'm assuming that toyota thinks this rust problem will just go away on frames from 2001-2004, but they are just going to get BIGGER AND BIGGER AS MORE TACOMA owners get wind of there DEATH TRAPS.
It would be great if TACOMA WORLD COULD PUT THIS AS A STICKY so this can be explained to other Tacoma owners that we will not stand for this treatment from Toyota(YOUR LIVES COULD BE IN DANGER IF YOU ARE DRIVING AROUND IN THESE TACOMA'S), and there should be no deadline on SAFETY!!!!! PERIOD!!!!!!
Thank you TW and all the members for OUR support in getting Toyota to man up on the SAFETY that Toyota should live by, because lets face it thats should be the reason why be bought there trucks. That WE will be safe when we drive them!!!
