first, I've searched the forum and read thread after thread after thread on the 1st gen frame rust issue, but I'm still confused. Some people say their particular VIN number wasn't included and they were basically SOL....others say theirs wasn't included but they had rust problems and they were covered anyway.
I'm looking to buy a 1st Gen, specifically an '01-'04 model, but the whole frame rust issue has me scared and seriously second-guessing the decision to look at the Tacomas. As a 2nd (or possibly 3rd) owner, if I buy a truck and it develops frame rust, will I be covered as far as a replacement frame? If I buy one that is not currently rusted, will I be able to get the free undercoat spray?
I've pretty much had my heart set on one of these trucks but now I've about talked myself out of it due to this 1 issue.
any feedback you guys can provide?
