    Yes but I did give them one last chance to see if they would help, now I know they won't. I will definitely look into that I am consulting an attorney currently though. Not gonna let this one slide. If I get any updates I will post. It seems like overall most people have had easy experiences with this I can't find many horror stories

    This thread is getting confusing. Too many different trucks being discussed on the same thread instead of making their own thread. @nineteen64, have you been able to resolve this?

    Too few to list.
    Well written letter. My take on this is that if you've only been speaking to the used car manager then you didn't take it high enough. You need to speak to the general manager and the customer relations manager as well in regards to this. Just because the used car manager might be shady doesn't mean the techs that will be working on this truck will be. I'd personally speak to the general manager and give them a shot to replace the frame and all the rusted parts as Toyota's campaign was doing and when that's done, have the option to either keep the truck or refund your money back.

    But then again, they did say they inspected the truck.

    So, back on the hunt. Im scouring craigslist, autotrader, facebook marketplace and this forum, looking in the CT, NJ, Rhode Island area. Are there other places I should be looking?

    CarGurus has worked for me before. Also word of mouth, let people know what you're shopping for. I bought my current Tacoma because I let friends know exactly what I was looking for and a friend had seen a Tacoma with a for sale sign down the road. It wasn't advertised anywhere online besides a for sale sign on the windshield next to the road.

    Check the frames and brake lines closely on any truck in those areas. They over salt and brine the roads and it kills trucks faster than cars. I was picking chunks of salt out of my grass in the front yard from when they salted during a dusting of snow we had and I'm down near Trenton!
