    If you bought a taco or any other Toyota click that link. You will be able to see any and all services done at a toyota dealership and you will be notified if there is ever a recall on your vehicle. I learned that my taco was originally from New Hampshire and luckily it had 4 or 5 pages of services. I found out that my 03 had a frame recall that was botched so i knew the dealership and took it up there. now i am getting a free frame replacement.

    DUH GUYS im just saying if you bought a taco used you can see all of your prior service records at the dealership. Im not trying to bring light to a fully involved subject. btw canada guy smack the shit out of our frame because you shouldnt be able to mess up a truck frame with a regular hammer. I would just take it to the dealer man.


    oh and scotty its illegal to drink beers and shift gears. unless of corse your talking about video games.

    ^You want to put your personal info in case there is another recall they'll know where to send the notice.

    Yeah that's a cool site. I actually put my info in it before I physically got my truck. It was nice being able to see the service history!
