Toyota 2007 Tacoma. Nice new, the truck has been very unforgiving, ,,the brake pedal and accelerator pedal are placed so close together, that its not a question of could, , but answer is yes.. its happened to me, sister borrowed it, and I warned about the problem, she still ran into the rear of another vehicle..the truck is dangerous..im used to it, but still if I have boots on, I have trouble.. the pedals are so close, and nearly the same height..I cant believe this very dangerous design hasn't been identified and repaired. I dare not loan my truck to anyone, because of past experience.. its just not safe!!! I shouldn't have to change the original design, but, to make it safe I might have too.. come on Toyota, ,this is a problem.. lets fix it..

Truck frame has extensive rust and it's just a 2007 model. I have had it at the Toyota dealership more than once and they said they would not undercoat the truck unless the state of Tennessee makes them do it. I was told at time of purchasing the truck that undercoating was not necessary because the frame is electrostatic charged to resist rust. The dealership said they would get an independent third party to look at the truck but they never have. The people I buy tires from have told me that the truck is badly rusted on the frame---something they don't see on a vehicle so new. Also, the truck is not driven much---I have another vehicle I drive to work----so the rust issue is not due to bad weather driving conditions. After all the recent news stories about Toyota products, it appears they have a quality issue and no effective means of dealing with the problems until something tragic happens.
