Wink More Frame Problems for Toyota trucks!!

Just a heads up talked to my father the other day he is having a window regulator problem in his 01 tacoma, I was unable to get to it so he took it into the dealer. He got a call from the dealer a few hours later with a $400 bill and was told his frame was rotted and needed to be replaced. They are going to replace the frame under warranty. I hope this is an issolated case and dosent end up with another huge buy back/recall.

It's been all over the internet and forums for about 2 years now.
They extended the warrantee on all tacomas for frame rust because the frames rot from the inside out.

The older tacomas - if they failed, the owners would get anywhere between 100% - 150% blue book value for the entire truck.
The newer tacomas, 2001-2004 got frame replacements or undercoating depending on how bad the rust was.

thanks for the info
I was aware of the frame rot problems on trucks up to 2000. I was unaware of a problem with the frame or its replacement on the 01- 04 the dealer just did an inspec on the truck less than 6 months ago and he was told at that time his truck did not fall under any type of frame recall. So he was a bit shocked to hear he needed a new frame 6 months later

looks like we posted at the same time, ,,,,Like I said Paul thanks for posting, When I first came on board I did not know, and I am sure that allot of the new guys & gals joining TW don't know either and are afraid to post something because people will bash them, just ignore the negative comments and I hope you stick around for your fathers sake!! Laters Bro!!

How am I being a dick? I didn't call you a moron or anything. I said you live under a fucken rock. What is bad about that?

You may not own a Toyota but I'm sure the rust issue was mentioned on the news right along with the stuck gas pedal issue.

Yes the frame rust was covered buy the news but I never saw or heard any mention of frame replacements on the 01+ and after taking it into the dealer and being told that everything was fine and there was no tsb for rust on the 01 it was a bit of a shock less than 6 months later to get a call from the same dealer that the frame was rotted through. Sometimes you have to put your trust in a dealer to know what is going on when it comes to a huge safety recall. SO no I wasnt living under a rock as you have put it.
