Tacoma 6-cyl

  • miles


Regarding the frame rust issue with the Tacoma, I am concerned that my truck will be unsafe to drive. An inspection of my frame has not been performed because Iowa is not included in the "cold weather state" list in the service bulletin. I am guessing they have never been here in winter. Is it where the vehicle was sold, VIN number, or did Toyota just limit the states it would cover. My issue is if my truck has a rust issue it should be covered for the safety concern. Rust does not stop at the Illinois\Iowa state line. Hope to at least get an answer from Toyota that my truck is a safety concern or not. Thank you in advance of any info. You can provide.

Took Toyota Tacoma, 4X4 to team Toyota in langhorne, pa. For annual state & emissions inspections. Failed state inspection due to hole in chassis frame due to corrosive rust. Had dealer call Toyota with no results. I called from the parking lot & received a case #. nothing else has been accomplished. Called a few days later & spoke to a corporate person. "Toyota can do nothing at this point, because a recall has not been issued for my vehicle's VIN#. my truck's chassis has been compromised & yet they won't repair it yet! this is the second time this has happened to me. The first time was a 1998 Tacoma which they bought back for the same reason--a rusted chassis frame. Think they would have corrected the problem by now! my sticker runs out at the end of November. What do I do after that? I need help to convince them to fix my truck!please!

I took the truck in for it's yearly inspection and was informed that the frame will not pass inspection next year. It was suggested that I check if this truck frame was under a recall. I spoke with my Toyota dealer and was told that this truck does not fall under current criteria. I have called Toyota experience to lodge my complaint that this is unacceptable that a truck with 51335 miles frame has rusted so badly that it will not pass inspection. I am waiting for Toyota to follow up with a broadened criteria that will repair my truck frame.

My 2007 Tacoma double cab sport 4X4 has rust on the entire frame. My concern is that the structural stability of the frame may become compromised due to rusting on the inside of the frame as well. I am located in chesapeake, Virginia which of course receives snow maybe twice a year. Please Toyota resolve this problem.

My 2007 Tacoma has serious frame rust. I have read about earlier Tacoma's with frame rust, one would of thought Toyota would have fixed this problem. I would like to see Toyota step up and admit they have a serious problem with their truck frames.

First trip to dealership to have them inspect excessive rust on frame was 09/01/10 with 38707 miles on the odometer Toyota world of newton stated that the surface rust was consistent with northeast driving second trip to Toyota world of newton to inspect frame separating on 11/01/13 with 74942 miles on the odometer. Toyota inspected and confirmed perforations in right side frame rail and no programs or campaigns on this model year truck was purchased new from Toyota world of newton 2/20/07 I do not believe there should be perforations in a frame of a truck that is 6 years old.....

Truck was in a parking slot when it suddenly accelerated and jumped the concrete barrier and hit the building (deli) broke the glass and damaged building. Airbag did not deploy. Damage to truck was $6533.97. This is second time truck has accelerated unexpectedly. Toyota inspected it on 6/25/2012 and determined it was not a manufacture design or defect. I believe there is some kind of malfunction. They checked the operation of the accelerator pedal and they claim all throttle tests were safe as they were designed.
