#2 - Frame Rust problem of the 2006 Toyota Tacoma
The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. Took truck into dealer for service and was informed that the frame had rusted to the point that there was now a hole in it. Contacted Toyota via phone and email and was told on both occaisions that there was not a "program" in place to assist owners with this problem. Previous replacement program covered Tacomas made from 1998-2004 that exhibited the same issues, premature rusting/corrision of the trucks' fames. My limited research has shown numerous cases where the frames of the truck corrodes to the point that it is unsafe to drive. The failure date was Oct. 7, 2013.. Read more...
#3 - Frame Rust problem of the 2005 Toyota Tacoma
The car was a 2005 Toyota Tacoma. While driving the steering became very difficult to turn to the left or the right direction. This is caused by a faulty design of the steering shaft universal joints. The frame is also rusting very badly and I am concerned about the integrity of the vehicle. It was Thursday, March 1, 2012 when this frame rust issue happened.

#4 - Frame Rust problem of the 2002 Toyota Tacoma
After having my 2002 Toyota Tacoma off the road and garaged for the past 3 years, I was getting the truck ready to be driven on the road again. I am the original owner. I took the truck off the road because my job was eliminated in October 2010. After changing the oil last weekend in my garage I noticed an abnormal amount of rust on the frame. In fact, so much rust that the rubber body mount block on top of the rear leaf spring snapped off in my hand. The leaf springs, brake lines, and front suspension and frame are all in question regarding vehicle safety. I immediately did research online to check out what I thought was abnormal amounts of rust on the frame and to see if anyone else had experienced this too. I was shocked at what I found. A huge safety issue with Toyota Tacoma rusted frames. I come to find out online that Toyota has a history of rusted frames, breaking frames, unsafe frames, and a recall currently for a rear spare tire mount issue due to rust. I also found out Toyota was replacing frames on my model. I called my dealership to set up an appointment to have this truck inspected for pennsylvania state requirements and to have the rust checked. They told me my vehicle was not valid for the rust inspection and the frame replacement because the program expired, I was told to call Toyota. I was never notified by Toyota or my dealer there was an issue, not by mail, phone calls or certified mail. I had the truck parked in my garage for three years so it wasn't even on the road during this time. Several phone calls later to Toyota and they refuse to replace my frame under the customer care program citing I did not have the undercoating applied by December of 2012. Toyota customer service said I could weld reinforcement plates to my frame myself or find a junkyard frame. Really Toyota?. This frame rust problem happened on September 14, 2013.

#5 - Frame Rust problem of the 2001 Toyota Tacoma
The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5TEPM62N61_. I purchased a used 2001 Toyota Tacoma and within 6 months noticed that the frame was rusting through. I learned in 2013 that there was a recall for the frame. I took the vehicle to the dealership and was told that they would replace the frame. A few days later, I was informed that they would not be doing this because I had not taken the vehicle in for rust protection. I called Toyota directly and was informed that I should have received four notices pertaining to this recall, however Toyota did not have the correct name in their database, and thus I did not receive the notices. If I had received them and taken the vehicle for the treatment, the frame would have been warranted for fifteen years. The vehicle was transferred into my name immediately after purchase, and my name should have appeared in Toyota's database. The vehicle is unsafe to drive, and I feel Toyota should either replace the frame or buy the vehicle back from me, as it has from other owners. It was Thursday, January 1, 2009 when this frame rust issue occurred.

#6 - Frame Rust problem of the 2006 Toyota Tacoma
The vehicle involved is a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 5TETU62N76_. Brought my Tacoma in for regular maintenance.

#7 - Frame Rust problem of the 1995 Toyota Tacoma
The VIN of the car is 4TAUN73C1S_. In June 2011 I had my 1995 Toyota Tacoma inspected. I specifically requested that the frame be checked. The truck passed inspection and the invoice, which I have, stated that the frame was good. At that time my truck had 166,874 miles on it. On August 3, 2013, 2 years later, I took my Toyota Tacoma to the same Toyota dealer who inspected it in 2011. The truck did not pass inspection, and the invoice, which I also have, states: "the frame has a hole in it - located passenger rear near spring purch. Hole. Customer has 30 days from today to have repairs done". The mileage on the truck is 173,527. I find it hard to believe that in 2 years, with only 6,653 additional miles on it, that the frame had rusted to that extent. I took the truck for a 2nd opinion. Not only did the frame have a hole in it, there were several rust spots Toyota did not report, in addition, the part that held on the trailer hitch is so rusted they suggested not to use it any more. I can't even use my truck any more! I contacted Toyota and got a case number. I got an email from a case manager with a number to call. I called just to have them tell me there was nothing they could do for me. I understand the recall ended at the end of December, but I figured after the report I was given in 2011, "the frame is good", that I had nothing to be concerned about. Now, my truck sits in my driveway. It is a pile of junk and Toyota's mission statement: "to attract and attain customers with hig valued product and services and the most satisfying ownership experience in America" needs to be re-written! thank you Toyota for your reputable service and my extreme lack of customer satisfaction!. This issue happened on Aug. 3, 2013.

The pressed c channel frame is also rotting and separating. I take very good care of my truck. People are constantly telling me. How good it looks for the year. It is ridiculous and Toyota motor company is not doing anything. The dealer has contacted corporate and they do not intend to do anything about the 2005 and up Tacoma frame rusting/rot problem. This frame rust problem happened on 08/14/13.
#10 - Frame Rust problem of the 2001 Toyota Tacoma
The car is a 2001 Toyota Tacoma. The VIN of this vehicle is 5TEWN72N31_. The Tacoma frame rust on my truck is beyond repair. I am putting myself and my family in danger every time I drive it. I called Toyota corporate office and they basically told me they cannot not do anything for me. Toyota however gave me a case number 1208310243 that was about a year ago. The telephone numbers for that is 8003314331. Four months ago I brought the Tacoma for a tire carriage recall at our local dealer which it was about to fall off. They took some pictures of the rotted frame and sent them to Toyota corporate office. Again the long anticipated wait. I know I am not the only one who is left out. I cannot sell this vehicle because it is dangerous. Please look into this matter for the many customers that have the 2001 -2004 Toyota frame rotted and was left out. Thank you. It was Saturday, May 25, 2013 when this frame rust issue happened.
#11 - Frame Rust problem of the 2006 Toyota Tacoma
The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5TEMU52N56_. In October of 2012 I purchased a 2006 Toyota Tacoma from interstate Toyota in airmont, NY. The vehicle had 79,000 miles on it, had and had passed the Toyota 160 point / certified pre-owned inspection. Prior to the purchase I asked about missing rear wheel molding, non functioning outside temperature gauge and what looked like rust on the frame. The vehicle was brought into their shop and put on a lift. The molding was repaired, the guage ordered and shipped to my home, and I was assured by my salesman, justin goetz, that the rust was merely surface rust, and that the vehicle wouldn't have passed the 160 point inspection had it been more then just simple surface rust. I was happy with my truck and purchased it with their platinum warranty coverage using Toyota financial. Several weeks ago the a/c stopped working. I got an appointment at my local dealership, shore Toyota, in pleasantville NJ to have it fixed. I asked that the a/c be checked, and that the frame be checked as a mechanic that performed my last oil change had noted concern about frame rust to me. Shore Toyota replaced the a/c clutch (covered under warranty), and proceeded to tell me that "the vehicle should not be driven and taken off the road immediately as the vehicle is not safe to drive!!" I was informed that the frame was severely rusted out with perferations holes on the left & right side rails. I was told that there was no way this vehicle could have passed a 160 point inspection because it would take much longer then 8 to 9 months for so much rot to occur. I was floored!! I just wanted my a/c fixed. I never could have imagined that my $20,000+ truck was a junker. . . . . That I'd been had. Toyota corp said there were no recalls and nothing they could do about it at this time. I wish I could include the pics I have of the frame. This problem occurred on Fri., Jun. 28, 2013.

#18 - Frame Rust problem of the 2001 Toyota Tacoma
The car involved was a 2001 Toyota Tacoma. I live in virginia. There was a safety recall for inspection of the truck frame for rust corrosion. At the time vehicle had the recall I was being treated for a mental disability and in mental hospitals. I was not of sound mind or judgment to understand the "recall notice". While having oil changed by the Toyota dealer the frame of the truck was noted to have holes in the frame caused by rust. Toyota motor corporation has refused to replace the frame of the truck honoring the recall even though I provided the necessary information from doctors providing documentation of my illness at the time of the recall. On March 14, 2013, the vehicle was taken in for a safety recall for rust of the spare tire carrier; which could fall off causing an accident. The Toyota dealer replaced the spare tire carrier consisting of two metal plates with four bolts that was bolted to a defective frame that has holes due to corrosion; also, they replaced supports that runs between the two frame rails; they did not replace the cable nor the rusted part that holds the wheel to the previous assembly parts. This has not fixed the issue because they have only replaced the spare tire carrier plate onto a frame that has holes due to rust that is not safe to drive. I need this vehicle as I am on disability and limited income; I want the frame replaced or a new truck with the same options as I have on the 2001 Tacoma. Toyota received a 25 million dollar settlement from dana corporation, supplier of the Tacoma truck frames, proper antirust preventative was not applied to prevent corrosion, which was a cost saving for one or both companies. From 1995 to 2004 the Tacoma trucks have had this problem. By replacing the frame Toyota would not be losing any money because they got their money from dana corp supplier of the Tacoma frames. The failure date was Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012.

#20 - Frame Rust problem of the 2000 Toyota Tacoma
The VIN of the car is 5TENL42N6Y_. My 2000 Toyota Tacoma has "extensive" rust damage to its frame and suspension system. This truck was purchased in kansas and has since moved with me down to georgia. I noticed on the web that the rust on the frame of the truck is a common concern/defect from Toyota. I am inquiring to see if there is a recall on this and how I should go about trying to get this fixed. The engine and all of the vital components work fine, it seems a shame to get rid of a vehicle that is still in good working condition, other than the rust problem that is. This frame rust issue occurred March 15, 2013.

#21 - Frame Rust problem of the 2006 Toyota Tacoma
The car involved is a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5TELU42NX6_. The frame on my 2006 double cab Tacoma is severely rusted. Huge metal flakes with quarter size thickness is flaking off the main frame & all cross members. There is a hole that has developed under the truck bed in the frame. I took the truck to a Toyota dealer and they looked at the frame and said it was very rusty but right now there was not anything they could do to help because Toyota had not issued any official "recall" or "TSB" for frame repair for 2006 models. I called the Toyota customer line. The lady took all my information and concern, but informed me that at this time I was on my own to have any frame work repaired. I feel the Toyota corporation should stand behind the 2005+ years Tacoma frame rust issues as they have with the 2001-04 model. It is obvious that the severe frame rust issue did not end with the 2004 model Tacoma. It was 02/10/13 when this frame rust issue occurred.

#24 - Frame Rust problem of the 2002 Toyota Tacoma
The vehicle is a 2002 Toyota Tacoma. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5TEPM62N02_. My Tacoma was recalled 2 years ago for frame rust. They told me it was ok + undercoated it to prevent future rusting. All that undercoating is falling off. That can only be due to improper application or faulty product. The dealer that applied the product (ferris Toyota) says the product is faulty + they've seen it many times. They've also confirmed the same with other dealerships. Toyota, otoh, says there's nothing wrong. If the frame doesn't need undercoating, then why'd they do it? are they suggesting it works when 50% has fallen off? this is the same vehicle which is now being recalled for spare tires falling off on the highway + my emergency brakes have been seized with corrosion since I've owned the truck. I've contacted Toyota many times + they refuse to put their correspondence in writing, but the representative, tiffany bishop, says she types a transcript of our conversations, just won't give me copies. She also calls from a phone with a blocked number. What kind of bull is this? these vehicles are obvious hazards on the road + Toyota is playing games instead of making serious efforts to make the vehicles safe. Please bring this to the attention of someone at Toyota other than ms bishop, I am finished corresponding with her!. This frame rust issue occurred January 9, 2013.
#25 - Frame Rust problem of the 2003 Toyota Tacoma
The car involved is a 2003 Toyota Tacoma. The VIN of this Tacoma is 5TEWN72N33_. Toyota has recalled my truck due to a rusted out frame. The Toyota dealership has elected to replace my frame with a new frame. This large procedure has left me insecure about the outcome. This truck is now 10 years old and as soon as the start wrenching on all the system components to disassemble and re assemble my truck I am afraid that they shorten the life of existing components due to added wear and tear. The dealer will need to remove and reinstall brake lines and gas lines that have been set in place and have extensive corrosion this will lead to premature failure and unsafe operation. Most mechanic know that a rusted and set bolt that has not been moved for 10 years has a 50% chance of removal. In order to remove such a "stuck" bolt they will need to apply heat and impact and may weaken the existing parts, steel, and bolts to lower levels out of tolerance that the vehicle as designed originally. Additionally, this service is completed in a location with out the controls, quality assurance and testing that is in place in a factory where new vehicles are built. There is uncertainty that this vehicle will be assembled, tested, and inspected according the the manufacturer's guidelines for a factory produced vehicle. This leads to uncertainty that the vehicle will not operate within the intended manufactures guidelines for safety, roll over protection, and crash performance. I propose that a total frame recall and replacement (or any large integral part that will impacted the vehicle operation) on any vehicle shall not be allowed given the uncertainty described. It was 12/27/2012 when this frame rust issue occurred.

#28 - Frame Rust problem of the 2001 Toyota Tacoma
Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5TESN92N91_. Toyota Tacoma 2001 in great shape other than the frame is rusting out. Took it to my mechanic for routine maintenance oil change; he saw some heavy corrosion on the frame. In several places, it has eaten through and has perforations. He says it is getting to be unsafe. I just bought this truck about a year ago at a dealership in ohio and was not made aware that this was a huge problem in the 1996-2003 models, but this issue is apparently very common as Toyota did not provide acceptable undercoatings for these models. Next step is to take it to the Toyota dealership and see what they say. At this point, I would take a buyout but would prefer to have the frame/chassis replaced at their expense. I love this truck and use it everyday. Very scared to drive it right now and hope they come through to fix their mistake. This should be a public recall since it is a huge safety concern and people should be made aware that this is a time-bomb accident waiting to happen. These trucks are everywhere on the road. Thanks. This problem occurred on Sep. 7, 2012.
#29 - Frame Rust problem of the 2005 Toyota Tacoma
The vehicle involved was a 2005 Toyota Tacoma. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 5TELU42N35_. Last year during vehicle inspection I was told my frame had rust. I checked with Toyota and they had a recall for model years up to 2004 for frame rust issues. This year while my truck was on the lift for mechanical work, the mechanic informed me that the rust on my frame was getting serious and there were some possible weak area's. Again I contacted Toyota and they said they have had no issues nor seen any rust on the truck frame. I asked if there was a possibility of a split year and the dealership told me that 2005's had a new design and frame manufacturer. I filed a case with Toyota case #[xxx] just so I would be on record. I have also seen many complaints on the internet when I did a search for frame rust 2005 Toyota Tacoma. Toyota will do nothing to help. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). This problem occurred on 08/23/2012.
#30 - Frame Rust problem of the 2006 Toyota Tacoma
We own a 2006 Toyota Tacoma that was taken to a garage for a state inspection and was pointed out to us that the vehicle has extensive frame rust with area of significant rust flaking off. It was also noted that there was a small rust through in one area. We took this vehicle to the dealer where we purchased it. They took pictures of the vehicle to forward to Toyota for them to evaluate the situation. It was noted that the technician exclaimed that the vehicle had this much rust for such a low mileage vehicle (29,407 miles). Toyota replied to the inquiry and stated that it was not a safety issue and they would not act on it. Looking at the underside of the vehicle and comparing with other earlier Tacomas that had been recalled for frame rust, I fail to see where this vehicle should not be considered having a major rust problem. I'm concerned that there will be further degradation and possible lead to the vehicle being unsafe. Pictures and copy of work order available upon request. It was Fri., Aug. 17, 2012 when this frame rust issue occurred.
