I had a 99 tacoma extd cab 4cyl. 5 speed 4x4 SR5that toyota bought back 4 years ago. Every since I have wanted to get another one and have found an 02 extd cab 4cyl. 5 speed 4x4 SR5. It has 151000 on it, body is in very good shape, runs and handles great. My concern is that in October of 2010 the had the frame inspected and it was ok so they coated it which still looks ok except at the very back where there is a lot of rust on it and the gas tank skid plate also has a lot of rust. It sounds to me that since it was inspected and coated that it will be covered for 15 years from date of manufacture. Is this correct? They want $8000 for the truck and I want to buy it but I don't want to end up with a worthless truck if the frame rots away.
What is everyone's opinion?
