2007 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #5

Nov 122008

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • 25,000 miles


No accident involved but there is excessive rust at present and was an extreme amount back in November 2008. Looking at the leaf springs; grounding screws securing the wiring; just the complete truck is terribly rusted and with a feeling of a possible road issue. I feel that it is unsafe.

The frame is rapidly rusting through. This vehicle: A) was purchase new by me in 2006, B) is stored in a fully enclosed garage, C) is not used for commercial purposes, D) my home is in westchester county, NY (immediately North of New York city and not a hostile vehicle environment) and E) the truck has very low mileage - 31,000 mi. The frame has rusted entirely through in two places and shows extensive rust throughout, including at points joining the frame to the chassis. Updated 09/04/14

Rear leaf spring on left side broke at approximately 105,000 miles. The leaf broke at both the front and rear mounting points. The left side of the vehicle dropped three inches and the broken spring made contact with the box frame. Fortunately there was no loss of driving control. Both rear leaf springs have squeaked since 2010 and required periodic lubrication to quiet them. This is a one-owner vehicle driven in the mild weather of the mid-atlantic states.

I have a 2 1/2 year old Toyota Tacoma that I purchased new in April 2007 from lebrun Toyota in canandaigua, NY. About a month ago I noticed 4 rust stains on my new garage floor directly under the frame weep holes on the Tacoma. I made an appointment at lebrun to have it looked at. I was told that the Tacoma should not be doing that but that they also had no idea on how to proceed. The service manager offered to have it undercoated using the same process they are currently using on the older Tacoma's and Tundra's that are under recall for the same issue. I declined the undercoating because I felt it was covering up the rust only to appear again in a few years after my warranty expires. The service manager agreed to have my Tacoma looked at by a Toyota fts. Today the Toyota fts, rob brown, looked at my truck and stated the rusty water coming out of the frame and staining my garage floor would be happening on any 2 1/2 year old truck whether it was a Ford, Chevy, or Dodge. I told rob that I have owned older vehicles previously and have never had this problem. Rob ignored me and again stated this was normal for my Tacoma. His official report stated that this rust is normal for a vehicle that has seen several winters. My Tacoma has seen exactly 2 winters. I currently have a complaint in with the nys attorney general's office. I am looking for some assistance to help me force Toyota to repair my truck as no 2 1/2 year old vehicle with only 22,580 miles should be rusted in the frame.

The truck leaves 4 rust stains on the garage floor after using the truck in the rain. The 4 rust spots are under the frame weep holes. The dealer looked at it today and stated that the truck should not be rusted like that with only 22,188 miles and only 2 1/2 years old, but they stated they did not know what they could do about it.
