I have the dealer documents that Toyota Corp provided to dealers about this program. I cannot post them to this site, but if you need them email me at cmoleskiroadrunner.com , I have been through the whole process and now am driving a 2008 Tacoma Acces Cab! But it was hard to locate a base model 4x4 so be prepared. With the additional $2000 I got in rebates, I couldn't pass up the deal.

Does this or does anyone have the vin numbers or models for the Tacos being recalled?
As stated earlier my local Toyota dealer told me mine was not included.

How can I e-mail you? I couldn't find your address. I noticed you had the documents, and was looking to see them. I have a 1998 Tacoma 4x4, and am looking to do this trade-in deal. Thanks!

Not sure how many are involved but the rust issue does exist on some 2001s, perhaps especially on early ones such as mine, manufactured in late 2000. You should look under your truck to see if the frame rails look excessively rusty. If so you can take a hammer an (a little more than) lightly hit the rusty spots (especially raised ones) repeatedly to see how much rust comes off and if holes develop. If the rust is coming off in chunks, more than just a little dust then your truck may have the problem. If holes develop you should call them and insists that your frame looks unsafe and describe the holes etc. They will get you in, be persistent.

Can you post what kind of incentives Toyota offered to you to buy another Toyota?
New and Preowned certified Toyota?
#231 of 1369 Wow! Not thrilled to hear all of this!

We have a 1998 Tacoma X-tra cab 4x4 with believe it or not ONLY 39,000 miles on it.
We bought it new and with my husbands job, he has a provided vehicle, so this truck hardly ever gets driven. I am dreading getting it inspected. Looking at losing this and ending up with a car payment makes me ill! I hope we don't have to jump through hoops to explain the low mileage. Just put 4 brand new tires on it last fall. Will make the call tomorrow and see how long until we can get in to get it inspected.

With that few miles you might be ok. At the very least if it doesn't pass, find 4 crappy tires and take your new ones off. I know of a few people that have done that.
Remember, toyota has a 15 yr war. on the frames now. You are covered for awhile.
