There's a five year warranty on the frame. The rusty frames were made by Dana Corp in the U.S. It is still costing Toyota a bundle. I'm fairly confident the problem has been corrected. I'm getting ready to get a '16 tomorrow. There are only about 6 4x4 Tacomas on most dealers lots at this point.

I'm trading a 2000 Tacoma that was undercoated. The frame broke at the right rear shock and near the gas tank. The truck was otherwise perfect. I'll be OCD about climbing under this one and checking. There used to be franchises such as Zeibert that under coated cars. The closest one to me is about 90 miles away. Rust is not really a thing in Virginia.
