    I bought a used Tacoma that was Toyota certified. It has the 100K mile bumper to bumper warranty. My rear bump is starting to get alittle rust on it. What do you guys think the chances of them replacing my bumper under warranty are?

    AEM CAI, Magnaflow exhaust, DT headers, all speakers replaced with (2) 10's and amp behind rear seats, color matched grill, grillcraft, projector headlights, 8000k HID's, DC Torque wheels, 3" Toytec lift, Bilstein 5100 shocks.
    Well I don't know a whole lot about the subject, but I doubt they would replace the bumper if it's just a little.

    Yeah me neither but it happened on mine as well. I mean you have to be a foot away from it to even notice bit I think its just from the salt on the roads from the winter months. See cause my truck only gets driven on the weekends so after driving on a salted road, it will sit there for a week before it gets to go out again. Plus I dont wash my truck everytime the roads are salted. But I'll try and wash her at least once every 2 weeks or so.:cool:

    I would think that would include the bumpers too. Since it seems like its due to untreated metal. Its not like I dented it in or put a deep scratch in the chrome. I know GM will replace body parts if they rust but not real sure about bumpers. Im sure its a long shot but I think its worth a try. What can they say, No. I've been told that alot in my life. A guy at my work has a 09 Camery with 14K miles and the tires were bald. They gave him a free set of tires of his choice. I would think at this point in time Toyota would be bending over backwards to keep their current customers happy.
