    This morning I was looking under my seat for something I lost and I noticed that there was rust on under the seats. It's bare metal. I took it to the dealership right after I got off of work and they told me that all the new cars have it and and Toyota is aware of it. Sounds like bunch of BS to me. I just bought the truck like 3 weeks ago its a 2011 Tacoma Access Cab. The guy at the dealership was also telling me that all bare metal rust like the rotors. I told him those items are out side of the truck exposed to water. There's no reason it would rust inside the truck. Then he started to say that Toyota makes there stuff strong so I don't have to worry about it.

    Do any of you guys have trust under your seats?

    Uh oh. Better go check under the seats later. The stealer tried to give me the "all new cars have rust" BS too when I took it in for undercarriage rust. That pissed me off since it's not true, just another excuse to shrug off the problem. Wanted to rip the guy's head off since he went on and on about how its normal when ALL the other Tacos on their lot had absolutely no rust...yes, I actually looked under each one. At least in the end they fixed it but it really disappointed me since I expect much more from Toyota. But yeah I was playing with the tilt on the steering wheel and I saw lots of surface rust on something in there...better have a better look at that too. :(

    Toyota got a little cheap and didnt protect some parts with paint. So yea it will rust. Humidity in the air is enough to do it.

    Dealer isnt going to fix it. If you are worried, you could disaasemble your entire interior and paint it all.:p

    Just leave it, youll be fine
