Mine Frame is still solid......14 years in the salt and nothing more than surface rust.

I would like to see some numbers as to which years are the worst for rust. My 97 spent 12 years and 234k in the rust belt and was rock solid, now this 96 I have has spent 14 years and 187k in the rust belt and it is fine.......It seems the 95.5-97's were actually better than the 98-00's. We have had 3 98-00 tacomas come through the used car dept. here at work all with junk frames.......the sad part is all 3 were put on the lot and sold for big money cause nobody bothered to check them out before they bought them

you bring up a good point, It would be interesting to find out what the ratios are between year models.


Joe???? you are normally good at finding out that kind of info/stat

Besides, "some of us" have more important things to do other than keep up with statistics!

Suddenly now you're interested? I'm sure it's buried on the national board somewhere.

Just kidding, I'll see if I can find anything this evening.

Oh yeah, I forgot to report. I didn't really find anything as far as numbers go, I think Toyota is keeping that info for themselves. Sorry man!

I did see a report yesterday that was "supposedly" done by an independant "government agency that found that in almost 95% of all the toyota vehicles that unexpectedly acclerated it was driver error and not mechanical.

the evidence was supposedly finally retrieved from the car's "black boxes". This evidence means that in those cases, the black box showed that the gas peddle was full open and the driver never attempted to apply the brakes. From that they determined that the drivers mistakenly hit the gas when they thought they were hitting the brake peddle.

Toyota said that they will do their own investigation of that data. that kind of tells me that Toyota wanted to be at fault. it ruins their current ad campaign of "we human also, but we are trying harder than anyone else"

Hmmm.
