    hey guys, I have kind of glanced through this thread and am wondering if this stands a shot at failing? I have until November 2020 to get it inspected, but curious what you guys think. I live in Western PA and the truck has been here since 2009. It actually isnt as bad as i thought it would be under there after looking at others in this thread.

    I have a 2010 (July 4 2010 date of first use) but I can’t find my letter anywhere. How long do I have to get the frame inspected? I have already gotten the CRC coating by the dealer, does that matter? My frame looks good (on outside at least) but I do want to get it looked at again before the warranty expires.

    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.

    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?
