I am willing to join a class action lawsuit. I have a 2001 Toyota Tundra with 5 holes in the frame.
I have a 2003 Toyota that I bought about 6 months ago and just found out about the rust issue when the brake line failed with my pregnant self and two young children in the car. Luckily we were in a parking lot and no one was hurt, but the mechanic told us the frame was totally rusted out and unsafe. I would like to be added to the lawsuit please if there is one! Jullys Souza we need your contact I do!
My 2003 Sequoia has the same problem. Holes in the frame and steering being held on by 1 CM of steel! Need to totally junk it because was told that the next bump it hits could lose all my steering and cause an accident. Toyota dealer knew about this before the expiration date and only sprayed anti-corrosive on the under carriage. But it soon peeled off since it was sprayed on rust! Now the frame has a hole in it and is not fit to drive. If they would have addressed this properly and reported it to Toyota when they sprayed the rust protection, it would have beat the date. Now it is passed and I am pissed. They won't help me out!
Please file a complaint with the National Highway safety board at 1-800-327-4236 and ODI.NHTCA.DOT./GOV/vehicle complaint.The more complaints the betterI have a 2002 Suquoia and just found out my frame is rotted out . Let me know if anyone knows of a solution to the problem and to Toyotas negligence of notification to their customers .
Julia How do I contact you,what is your e mail.mine is email@example.com and i'm in Mass.Hello Everyone,
I have a 2003 Sequoia that just turned 100k miles last month, is in great shape and everyone that sees it thinks is brand new... well, not so much... my wife found a rusted out hole just above the back passenger side wheel, after doing a deeper look at it we saw that the whole frame is rotted out. I had the 2014 recall check and all the dealer told me is that they needed to do a coating in the undercarriage to prevent rust from the salt that is spread in Massachusetts after every snowfall and all they did was just the coating and never mentioned anything about the possibility of having the frame replaced.
After reading all 5 pages of posts in details i realize that there is nothing we can do to have this issue fixed by Toyota, so tomorrow I am contacting my attorney to see what it takes to start a class action law suit and would like as many names and information as possible to start the process.
I see that a lot of you guys have placed you names but i believe we will need more info from you all.
if anyone interested could send me your email and contact information I will have my attorney contact you guys to gather any additional information necessary.
hope to hear from as many of you as possible.
