Tacoma Access Cab 2.7L 4

  • Manual transmission
  • 48,000 miles


Apparently some 2007 Tacoma's have excessive frame rust, and my vehicle is one of them. The frames were not undercoated correctly and have excessive, extreme rust, while the body is fine. My truck was in the snow belt for several years (New York state), before I purchased it and had it shipped to Texas. Toyota will only cover the repair or correction to the frame, if there is a HOLE through the frame (from rust). Think about it, if your frame is rusted to the point of having a hole through it, you are in serious danger. It is just a matter of time before that scenario occurs! Toyota would not cover my vehicle on any warranty issue of the same because I had no 'hole' through my frame from the rust. Really? Check back in a year or less!

I will not be purchasing any Toyota vehicles in the future as this is a breach in warranty and customer service, not to mention a 'real' safety issue. It's just a matter of time before the frame rusts completely through!

Tacoma V6

Craig Toyota has had my vehicle for 4 months and they don't have a clue when it will be fixed. they have had vehicles for 6 months and can't get the parts to fix the problem, I received the recall by letter and took my vehicle to Craig Toyota to see if it needed to have the frame replaced and it did it had perforations in the frame and they said by law they couldn't give the vehicle back to me until they got the parts to fix it because they would be liable if something happened so they have had my truck for 4 month and I just found out that there is no law that says they have to fix a vehicle in any certain time frame so they could keep my vehicle for as long as they want and I can't do anything about it. I have called Toyota's corporate office and complained multiple times with no results. The next person I talk with will be my legislator in Indiana, I have told multiple people not to take their vehicle in to be checked unless they will never need their vehicle again. So my advice to anyone thinking about purchasing a Toyota steer clear and think very hard about purchasing a different vehicle, stay away from Toyota, I will never own another one and I can promise you that and if I ever get my truck back the first think I will do is trade it in for something other then a Toyota. This is not the only recall on this truck and I will report those separate. Please read the complaints on this website because they are true.

Tacoma TRD V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles

Had a 1998 Tacoma - frame rotted to the point that the truck was unsafe to drive in early 2007. Traded for $5000 for 2007 Tacoma as was assured by corporate Toyota that frame rot was due to me not washing the undercarriage enough. Six months later Toyota launched their 1995 to 2000 frame rot recall and buyback program - turns out there was a manufacturing defect!! Had I kept the truck Toyota would have bought back for $17000 - lost $12000!

At any rate, recall for frame rot is now in effect for 2007 (and other year) Tacomas. Had my frame inspected by dealer this week (early December, 2014). No holes, just much rust and flaking metal, so a "corrosion resistant compound" (CRC) applied. Application looks awful - missed many rusting spots on frame and oversprayed all over (on mudflaps, lower body of truck, splotches on fenders and hood, on driveshaft, etc.) and it's still very wet after 2 days in a 60 degree garage. It's all very disheartening. So much for Toyota quality and dealer integrity!

I went for a safety check. I go to the same dealer every time. They have a record of what work has been undertaken. The truck was rejected as not road worthy. The truck has 77000kilometers. The fix will require a new frame. The bill will be 12000 Canadian dollars. This is about half of my yearly pension. The dealership was sympathetic. They suggested I contact Toyota Canada. Which I did. After two weeks I got a reply. Warranty expired, so sad you are on your own. The dealership who now know who I am called and got the same answer.

I bought the truck in good faith. We have had Toyota since the 1970's. I am now 75 years old and extremely disappointed as we have always had good service and a well assembled product. Disappointed too that Toyota shows a lack of good will.

The truck was assembled in Freemont California. In the late 1990's Toyota had the same problem with frames. I foolishly thought there was no way Toyota would allow the problem to persist. I can only suggest that Toyota lacks due diligence with the supplier in this case. The Tacoma is a beautiful comfortable little pickup. My truck is rejected, I must walk. This would be OK but I live 10 kms from the grocery store and my knees are not in the best shape. Frederick w.
