I have to wonder how many trucks Toyota is buying back. Every day like clockwork I see two Tacos going by on a flatbed to the boneyard. Said boneyard is 1/4 mile from my house! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" /> Im assuming the frame-rot is isolated to the rustbelt where road salt is the cause. Im just curious as to how many states are classified as the rust belt? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

The local shop here said that most she's heard of are from WV, having been bought or spent time there.

My buddy's shop is in Marietta, OH. Right across the river from WV, and he's got over 100 buy backs.

Some bad news on parting out the recalled Tacos. My local boneyard has hundereds of them and they cant part out anything. Not even a fiberglass cap. Essentially Toyota owns these vehicles and is paying the yard to crush them. Talk about a waste! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" /> Every morning I pass a car carrier with five perfectly good Tacos on their way to the grave. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/barf.gif" alt="" />

Need a Spot
Hi.I was just reading this post and wondering if my Tacoma could be affected. It's a 2001. I bought it in Dec. of 2000. It's a V-6 double cab 4x4. Anyone know ?

No the recall only applies to '95-'2000 model years. If you were affected, you would have received a notice from Toyota.

Took mine in Monday. Sniffed around the lot till I found the Tacoma Morgue. 12 units. Looked to fairly represent the whole year spectrum. Noticed at least 5 95's 96's and 2 99s.

Crawled underneath and saw very bad rot on the areas where the body mounts are, and the arch over the rear wheels. Some looked like I had tried welding them and covering them with Wal*marx rattle can underbody coating...:o <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Wrench unloading the autorack said Toyota is cutting a hole in the oil pan, running it till they seize up, slashing tires and running them through the hammer shredder.

I'm happy to report that no tears were shed, and my truck is sitting outside as we speak. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />


er...type.

Need a Spot
A friend from work babied his '00 Tacoma, washed it every weekend, took really good care of it (for Upstate NY). Took it in for an alignment - it was shaking like crazy, he didn't care, but the wife didn't like it. They called him on his cell "you need to come back, we have a problem..."

Long story short, they bought it on the spot, gave him the loaner til he heard from Toyota corporate, the next week he got a check.

He says the dealer described the buyback like this - go to KBB.com, find your vehicle, set the mileage to 'zero', the condition to 'excellent', calculate the retail value (the value the dealer can sell it for), then multiply it by 150%.

He got a check for $17,200 for a '00 with 158,000 miles.

Too bad his wife already picked the new Prius...

Yeah, I think I'll let the nice man hit my frame with the 16oz hammer...



Eric

PS - the trucks go to the boneyard, but the owner can strip off what they want before they go - if they'll take her, my '95 will go with bald tires on steel rims, no cap and missing the grill guard and rear bumper... smile

Haven't heard of any. Maybe time for a frame swap?
