    'Ello--

    Is it normal for the rear bumper to have rust on it at 35k miles from a 2007? I have an SR5 TRD.

    If it's not normal, can I take it in to get it replaced?

    at 35,000 miles, your bumper to bumper warranty will have expired but corrosion still applies... Hard to say if the dealer would cooperate with you but it would be worth a shot

    Powertrain warranty applies for 60,000mi or 5 years, whichever comes first. IIRC.

    You might be right at the 36,000mi comment. My apologies :eek:

    k, I'll swing it into the stealership to have it checked out. If it does need to be replaced, I'll see if they'll allow me to add $$ to it and order a different rear bumper; that'd be bomb.

    007 Toyota Tacoma Warranty Program
    Basic: 3 year / 36,000 miles
    Drivetrain: 5 year / 60,000 miles
    Rust: 5 year / Unlimited miles

    Basic Warranty: The basic warranty covers everything except items that are subject to wear and tear or replacement in the ordinary course of vehicle ownership, such as oil and air filters, wiper blades and brake pads. Tires and batteries are often excluded, but usually have their own warranty provided by the manufacturers of those items. Emissions equipment is required by Federal law to be covered for five years or 50,000 miles.

    Drive Train Warranty: In some cases the drive train warranty continues after the basic warranty has expired. This part of the warranty covers most of the parts that make the vehicle move, including the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft. Like the basic warranty, consumable parts such as hoses and belts are not covered. However, most of the internal parts of the engine, such as the pistons and bearings, which are also subject to wear and tear, are covered by the drive train warranty.

    Rust or Corrosion Warranty: Rust or Corrosion Warranty: This warranty covers the vehicle's sheet metal, and protects you from rust and corrosion that are severe enough to cause a hole - surface rust is not covered. However, if you keep your car washed and waxed rust shouldn't be a problem.



    Phooey, surface rust not covered. Grrrr
