    Did anyone else experience this?
    Just washed the truck after 4 months since the stay-at-Home order. The paint literally came off around the back edge of the passenger window.

    I only have 27k on this truck. It shouldn’t be that quick to start flaking off. I wonder if there is workmanship warranty for this?image.jpg

    There is a warranty enhancement on many Toyota’s with white paint. Go to the dealer

    we've had no tacomas yet. i assume theyre part of the issue. doesnt hurt to ask. but plenty of camrys, rav4s and what not getting repaired on toyotas dime. Toyota has never had a good white paint.
