    --From experience, early 2000 tundras are the ones that had this problem. There's a recall for the frame rusting on them so if there is rust, it gets replaced free of charge. I must add, the recall was made due to customers living in wet/snow areas where salt is added to roads, Therefore causing rust. Don't get me wrong, anyone that has an early 2000 tundra is eligible for the recall if it hasn't been completed. --In my opinion, if you live in a snow area you can get rust on any truck/car. --I have not seen major rust problems on tacomas. --You can still get an early 2000 tundra with the same engine as a tacoma, but not the other way around.

    frame recall 2003 toyota tacoma

    There is something going on with toyota. But it is not a total recall. Its a voluntary recall meaning they will warranty only what they want & are not legally bound to cover all as it is a voluntary deal by toyota.

    I own a 95.5 & a 2003 tacoma. The dealership in Toronto says that due to my failure to bring the trucks in for undercoating back in 2011 after being notified by toyota . They will not warranty the rusted frame. But they will replace the tire carrier plate.The truck is not safe to drive due to the gaping holes in the frame. But toyota feels there is enough frame to weld or bolt the tire carrier in.

    I did not receive any letter from toyota back in 2011 about undercoating nor have I received a letter for anything from toyota as of todays date. I was totally unaware of this undercoating deal or I would have takin it in.to be sprayed. I had jst purchased the 95.5 truck in latter part of 2010. I bought my 2003 four door 4x4 in 2013 at the time it had no holes in the frame that I could see & the body is rust free even to this day. But after 2 winters the frame has rotted & cracked . I was washing it at the car-wash & a piece of frame about 13" long & 6" tall fell out from under the drivers floor. I did not own this truck during the recall for undercoating & again no letter from toyota but was told the warranty was void because I disreguarded thier letter to have it undercoted by June 11, 2011.

    I am disapointed with toyota. They clearly have a frame rust issue & should be held responsible for all the trucks they have put on the road with inadequate rust protection. Not just the ones that they choose to cover.

    They extended thier warranty to cover the 95 to 04 models for 15 years admitting they had a seriouse rust issue. But they protected themselves by making it a voluntary recall giving them the loopholes to escape validating that warranty. Shame on toyota
