I need some advice,
I have been negotiating the purchase of a 2011 Tacoma and had reached an agreement based upon the truck passing mechanical inspection.The Dealership where I live (Edmonton, AB) cleared the truck mechanically, however, I looked at the undercarriage and I am concerned with the amount of surface rust on the suspension, frame, exhaust etc.
According to the trucks current owner the vehicle has been sitting for the last six months. It is only a 2011 with ~25,000 Km's, is it normal for a new Tacoma to have this much rust? and what options would I have as a new owner to fix this issue if I do purchase the vehicle? Do you think that this rust will significantly lower the trucks resale value? Any and all advice is appreciated. I have included photos of the vehicle to give you some perspective.
