    Sorry to hear that. That sucks...... yeah I used to own a tundra and an elderly lady didn't see I was stopped at a red light and rear ended me in her lexus. Minor damage to the truck bumper but her lexus was under my tow hitch OUCH! Good Luck on the repair.

    My 08 DC Sport is in the shop for the exact same reason.

    I got rear ended by a Chevy Tahoe and pushed into a minivan. $14,500 in damages including a new frame.

    Went in the shop in early March. They told me I wouldn't see it again until mid April...... :(

    I'm driving a 4-door Ram and don't like it. :mad:

    i wouldn't cry to hard over a tacoma.....

    but mine isn't in the shop....but i've pocketed 3k+ over the last 15 months due to three minor hits to the rear fenders and bumper. that's 17% of the purchase price back in my wallet. i don't believe i would have recouped those dollars at sale time.

    couple of more dings, and it'll be paid for by the insurance companies of opposing drivers
