This is a 2005 Tacoma (yes, oh five) extended cab TRD.
We're the second owner, purchased this from the dealership and they've done all major work / service on this vehicle. Incl new tires, alignment and regular rotation. We've had this a little over a year.
Had the truck in at the dealership for new brakes today. They called me to say that there was a major hole in the frame. see photo.
I said "is it safe to drive?" They said... "No".
They told me to call Toyota Corporate to open a case and get a case number. I got a case number and that's about all from the phone call.
They are following up with the regional toyota person.
We're in a loaner.
They will be taking more forensic photos on monday to submit to Toyota for review / action.
Possible outcomes have not been discussed at this point.
I'll keep this thread updated.
