    Yup.... lots of threads about that already.

    If you're not the original owner, you don't get the 150% buyback. I don't know what the actual percentage is....but its to prevent people from buying old trucks and immediately turning them over and reaping the benefits.

    Some of the 01-04 trucks are getting total frame replacements or rust coatings depending on bad the situation is.

    A girl I work with, her brother had an older tacoma - the frame actually split and had to be towed to the dealer.

    stock for now

    thats false. i had my tacoma for less than 6 months before toyota bought it back for 1.5 times KBB. there might be a rule now where you have to own it for a certain amount of time, but you do not have to be the original owner.
