Rusted Tacoma FrameToyota Tacomas are ultra-reliable trucks, but one serious issue that has plagued them is rusty frames.   When I say 'rusty' I mean rusty, with frames literally falling apart and collapsing.   You can see photos of the damage on the board if you are worried about your frame and to read other people's experiences with getting their frames fixed and their trucks bought back.
Rusted Tacoma Frame The good news is Toyota is treating customer's right and buying back 1995.5 through 2000 model Tacomas with rusty frames and replacing frames of 2001-2004 Tacomas if the rust is too bad. If your Tacoma doesn't have severe rust issues, Toyota is actually resealing your frame to protect it as well, so make sure you contact your dealer as soon as possible for more information.
