Last trip to my dealer, there were about 5 or 6 rusted frames on the side of the building also. Toyota of Bowie.

Rusty frames, sticking throwout bearings, windshield seal leaking, snow falls all over my seat when I open the door, bench seat KILLING me (even with Obus forme back support) I do like alot about this truck, though.

Parts manufacturers just don't care about quality anymore and it shows. It's all about profits.

I still believe Toyota has the best intentions of all the automakers, they're just getting screwed like the rest of us.

Try this 'trick'. Try brushing the snow off before opening the door...

Yes, I know that "trick" well now. Still doesn't work when the snow is between the door and cab gap, though.

oh no! now there's a new problem with the Tacoma? rusted out frames?
should have got the Nissan instead!
you guys should be washing and waxing your frames! its in the maintenance manual!
The coal trucks in my area they spray used oil on the underbody of their trucks so they don't rust out!
You guys should be doing that!
They make automatic car washes that spray the underbody, why don't you guys use those car washes?
I don't blame Toyota if they would reject a rusted out frame warranty claim if you failed to maintain and clean it properly!

Dana makes the frames for toyota. On a enormous run of frames Dana screwed up on one of the processing steps which in turn has made all these frames rust way ahead of their time. So it really has nothing to do with toyota at all and has nothing to do with owner maintenance.
