    Anyone else:

    - Have to get rid of their Tacoma at a huge loss as it was unsafe due to frame rot and couldn't be sold through normal channels due to liability?
    - Did this before Toyota had their buyback program (like in early 2007)?
    - Contacted Toyota before the buyback and was told that there were no systemic problems with the frames?
    - Contacted Toyota recently to hear that although they have the buy back to "treat customers right", they won't do anything of substance to owners affected before the buyback? Not even an extended frame warranty on their 2007 Tacoma?

    I feel screwed, especially after a coworker with the same year/model truck got $14,500 last week - his frame was no where as bad as mine in 2007.
