    Have a real bad problem.
    Got a 1997 Tacoma Salvage Truck. Chassis is rotting out.
    Had a recall on the inside light. resolved

    Chassis-Now I am finding that I am being stonewalled about the chassis issue. Dealers and home office will not respond to my questions about
    a recall or what I can do. This should not be happening.

    Truck passed last inspection. Only has 70,000 miles.

    Any advice as to what to do. Really need some help.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the info.
    Another question. if you don't mind..
    When I went to a couple of the local dealers, they (of course wanted to charge me)

    i've been emailing toyota customer service "complaint" "recall" "international" "corporate" and "usa" divisions but haven't gotten much feed back. Am I sending off emails to the wrong places?

    Where should i be sending/calling?

    Kind of getting frustrated. Any advice?

    Will the dealer even deal with a salvaged truck?
