I think the move Toyota made giving first Generation owners 150% of retail value for their truck (via buyback) was a HUGE corporate good karma maneuver. What other vehicle manufacturer has done something so bold? They recognized a problem that wasn't addressed early in their build out and are voluntarily (not court ordered) doing the right thing today.
That makes me think, what has Toyota done differently for the 2nd Generation? Word on the street is if the dealer can stick a finger through the frame it's rusted and you get 150% of retail value. Did they take extra steps rust-proofing the current generation or will this be an issue down the road?
Props to Toyota for doing the right thing
