    it does not really look like a perforation to me though. looks more like the layers are splitting apart, i guess i will schedule a visit and go from there.

    Take a hammer and tap around and see what happens.

    Where are you in West Pa? I had mine done at Baierl Toyota in Cranberry. The frame tech there is GOOD!

    I need to get back under and look. I honestly didn’t notice that when I took the pic but it does look a lot like a hole.

    No it wasnt. I just took it in for an oil change. Had the CRC done about 18 months earlier and Toyota had just extended the deadline and my 06 had 3 more months left. He found the hole while doing a courtesy check. The frame looked good unless you really checked it closely. In 2 years it would have been toast. They saved my ass and gave me back a truck thats going to last me a LONG time. GREAT customer service.

    The round discoloration in the first and fourth photos looks like a hole is in the middle of that. I bet if you lightly hit it with a hammer a bigger hole would appear.

    Let me know if you want to come up this way to have your truck checked out. I'll give you the contact info at Baierl. Take a drive past the dealerships in your area. If they have a pile of rusted frames outside then they have embraced the frame recall and are using it to their advantage. Most likely have a good frame tech too.

    Mine had the CRC sprayed on it in 2015 and it failed inspection last month. Waiting on a call that the frame is in.

    Also, you don't need your letter. I just bought my truck 3 weeks before had it inspected, so I did not own it when the letters went out. I called the Toyota Customer Care # and gave them my VIN and they could tell me that my truck was still eligible.

    Hope this helps!

    I just got word from my Toyota shop that I need a frame replacement and need to bring the truck back on Monday (they weren't even really supposed to let mat take it with me but I needed it for a few days). Said it would take upwards of two months and that a loaner car was not provided. That doesn't sound right to me as I believe I had read that loaners are provided.

    Is there any language from the suit or toyota corporate I could provide to get a loaner car?

    Go to this web address: http://media.fixed-ops.com/Toy_Campaigns/E0D.pdf
    It is a pdf file that is 91 pages long that outlines all the actions that should be taken for the Frame Rust Recall.

    Thanks for the link. At first glance I notice that my MY2010 is past the date in the update and SC and TX, the two states the truck has resided, are not on the cold weather states.

    I wonder why the dealer is saying I am eligible

    It is 12 years from the date the truck was first purchased new. If you reside in a Cold Weather State as the current owner then I think it is eligible.

    2010 + 12 = 2022... you still have a couple years plus. The 'cold weather states' business refers to getting the coating sprayed on, not frame replacement. If a frame fulfills the criteria for replacement, it gets replaced no matter what state you're in.
