    Passenger side was flaking last April. Toyota ended up painting just the affected area. Now my driver side is starting to flake as well. Toyota said I am out of my warranty by a month not by mileage and are unsure if they will be able to fix this side. Are you serious Toyota???447D47E7-2E0E-4FC3-A0A2-4148A6B4E584.jpg3CFF8D14-158D-4247-A900-FC00A35C1499.jpg

    Toyota said they will cover this side as a “good deed”. They won’t even cover a rental car while my truck is in the shop. They said they are repairing it outside the warranty. Like I said before they knew about this issue the last time it happened to the passenger side. Toyota needs to own up for a crappy paint job. I still haven’t dropped my truck off yet I’m still trying to fight the $40 a day rental they are not willing to pay.

    2002 tundra and a 2008 Highlander both had clearcoat peel off in the first couple of years. Hopefully this new truck has better paint. Not holding my breath

    Yeah by 900 miles. They are trying to say it’s from abuse. Mechanic and guy working the front desk a well as body shop guy (Toyota shop) all say it’s a bad factory clear coat.

    2017 BBP made in Mexico. Part of the bad clear coat batch. Toyota bought this truck back and the owner bought a new tacoma.

    As I've said many times before....Toyota paint...pay your money, take your chances.
    Has never been their strong suit.

    My neighbor has a blue one from 2007 or 8 that has 260k miles on it and the paint still looks OK. He doesn't do shit to maintain it either. Toyota needs to own up to their crappola paint.
