    Welcome back and good job getting your money back. Also try Offer Up as I've seen many vehicles posted there as well. Just be more aware of what to look for in the next truck.

    As me and others have said check frame!!!
    I posted earlier that I would not buy a Taco that did not have frame done or was not in the recall/replacement time frame
    On my 4 taco all 3 previous frames rusted out.

    Some good ones come up for sale but you goota move quick.

    Good luck

    Or to be safe - look for something in the south. Might be a weekend of time and a bit of an expense to get there and drive it back up north but could be worth it in the long run. I'm sure if you find something, a local TW member would be willing to check it out for you and report back.

    Definitely worth the trip to go down south. Bought my truck down in Virginia Beach area, frame is clean.

    Another recommendation for buying down south. I originally looked at another 2015 that it turns out was from Connecticut, had a ton of surface rust on the frame. The one I bought has always been in NC and the frame is in great shape.

    Glad OP got his full refund.

    I personally would have gone to the local news and blasted the dealership that way.
    Get them featured on your local 6pm news, put their name out there and show everyone in NY what they are doing.
    You'll get your refund quick
