Pictures of my 99 Rusted Frame

Well everyone I think my truck might have the rusted frame problem after all. I put it up on a hoist last night and took these pictures. For anyone that has had this problem does this look consistent with what Toyota is concerned about?

Went down to the local toyota dealer and out back are at least 25 yotas lined up bumper to bumper awaiting the crusher - what a SHAME to see - and all those good parts...nother problem is now you can't find a used yota ANYWHERE they are going quick

Wow...that definately looks bad.

What a shame that they're 'crushing' these trucks. I mean - they could've sold them to a junkyard for some cash atleast and the parts would be available for everyone.

Toyota must be getting compensated somehow either by insurance or something - or why would they be passing out all those checks? Amazing...
That's a lot of money for a company to freely dish out.

Ya after I took those pictures I contacted the dealership and they told me to bring it in. I could only find the one hole but when I tapped on the frame I could tell it was not very solid in some areas. Hopefully Toyota comes through on this for me.

I purchased this truck in Boston and drove it back to Southern Ontario just 6 months ago. It has been a great truck so I will just wait to see what happens.

I had this happen to my 99. I received my offer of 150% of the blue book in excellent condition. It was more than $5000 over what I paid for it. I immediately started looking for a new/used one and you are right, it is slim pickens. The dealers know that too and I paid a little more for my new 2006, but with the extra money, I got it for a song.

Take it in. The process is fairly easy and the offer will give you no choice.

I thought my frame was solid because there was only one visible sot of rust not larger then a quarter that wasnt even a hole yet, i took it to toyota seeing how there buy back deal is unbeatable and the slammed the frame up and down with a hammer revealing 3 more holes around quarter size then the final killler was the mechanic took a punch and knocked it straight through the frame, very disapointing to see. After explaining how dangerous this problem is they gave me the option of taking the rental or signing a waver and driving the truck off the lot. I have a 30 day 08 malibu since all the car rentals in ct are empty becaue of the recall and toyota guarenteed the process be over before the 30 days are up.
