keep a watch for a letter in the mail. Your not supposed to know about it but a "small" number of Tacoma frames may not have sufficient corrosion protection and may either be replaced or the vehicle bought back. Toyota is not sure yet. this is from a good source.

For Runner owners in these same years, I did ask the question, and got this reply off the blog:

I do have a question; would this also apply to the same range of years in the 4Runner? Thanks.

Hi, MDS -

Thanks for your comment. In reference to the frames on our 4Runner SUVs, the following:

The Toyota 4Runner and Toyota Tacoma are built at different plants (Tacoma is built in Northern California, 4Runner is built in Japan), and have different suppliers for the frame. Therefore, this condition may be present only in the Toyota Tacoma vehicles.

We hope this answers your question.

- OpenRoadMaster

Additionally, if you Taco owners have already had frame repair attempts, this extended warranty STILL applies to you, so get on in to the dealer and ask about it. Wouldn't hurt to take the blog url with you when you go visit. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Guess this means there are going to be alotta toyota frames coming up for availability for the offroad enthusists. 800,000 vehicals... that should bring the price of frames down a bit. Awsomeness.

Those frames are so bad there is nothing to weld to! Scrap iron at best.

I just learned of a guy with a '98 with only 98k on it, had the frame crack in front of the pass side rear wheel. He traded it in on a new CRV and the stealership didnt notice the crack. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" />

So I emailed a friend who is sales manager at a Toyota shop back home:

Me-"You all seeing many of these buy back? About how many since the start of the campaign?

Him-"I have a graveyard out back, nearly 100 trucks"

This is for an 2007 MSA of 160,656 with 2 Toyota dealerships. Incredible.
