9/11/2017 - ROCHDALE, MA
CURRENT MILEAGE APROX. 89000 . HAD A BRAKE CHECK AT MY LOCAL REPAIR SHOP. RAISED TRUCK ON TO THE LIFT AND WAS SHOCKED AT WHAT HAD BEEN REVEALED . THE FRAME HAS ROTTED THROUGH ALL OF ITS CROSS MEMBERS, CREATING A MAJOR STRUCTURAL PROBLEM. THE REAR CROSS MEMBER WICH IS CONNECTED AT 4 POINTS TO THE MAIN FRAME RAILS IS NOW ONLY CONNECTED AT 1 POINT. THIS CROSS MEMBER ALSO CARRYS THE SPARE TIRE. IF GONE UN DISCOVERD MAY HAVE FALLEN OFF DURING TRAVEL, CREATING A SAFTEY CONCERN. THE MAIN FRAME RAIL HAS MAJOR RUST DAMAGE AT THE CONNECTION POINT WITH THE CENTER CROSS MEMBER WICH PROVIDES STABILITY TO THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION . TOYOTA HAD A RECALL ON THESE FRAMES BUT WERE ONLY PROVIDING A SPRAY ON RUBBERIZED COATING, WICH MOSTLY FLAKED OFF IN MY DRIVEWAY. I HAVE CALLED TOYOTA DIRECTLY AND OPENED UP A CLAIM WICH WAS EVENTUALLY DENIED.THE VEHICLE WILL NOT PASS INSPECTION AS IS .IM NOT FINANCIALLY IN A POSITION TO BUY A NEW VEHICLE AT THIS TIME . I DONT KNOW WHERE ELSE TO TURN WITH THIS SITUATION IF YOU SPEND 40-50,000 DOLLARS ON A VEHICLE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET MORE THAN 89000 MILES OUT OF IT

I HAVE A 2006 TOYOTA TUNDRA WITH NO BODY RUST BUT THE FRAME IS ROTTING OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE TRUCK. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD OR COULD HAVE EVEN KILLED SOMEONE AND TOYOTA DID NOT EVEN NOTIFY ME OF THE ISSUE. WHEN I DID FIND OUT ABOUT THIS AND CONTACTED TOYOTA THEY SAID THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE AND THERE IS NO PROBLEM.
