We started to notice the rust on the roof of the car during the summer. It has gotten progressively worse. The hood of the car is also fading badly. This type of rust should not be happening.

The Frame of my Tacoma 2006 is heavily rusted and perforated. I submitted a complaint to Toyota customer service and their answer was "we are sorry but we can't do anything. Once the vehicle is outside of its warranty parameters, the cost of repairs becomes the owner’s responsibility” and we are talking of a repair cost of $10,000.

Toyota is refusing to accept that this manufacture defect that is affecting the structural integrity of thousand of Tacoma trucks in the whole country and is becoming a huge financial quandary for hundreds and hundreds of costumers. Sooner or later Toyota Corporation will be accountable.

problem #1

Tacoma 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 8,000 miles

The frame is severely rusted at all joints. Since the truck is garaged 95% of the time, always clean (even engine compartment), and only has 12,000 total miles on this 2006 vehicle, it is extremely illogical. The warranty covers only "perforated" rust. It is not perforated but will be that way in a year or so.
