Toyota Frame Settlement 2005-2010 Toyota Tacoma, 2007-2008 Tundra, or 2005-2008 Sequo

I know a lot of us own or have owned the vehicles involved in this rust lawsuit.

Here is the synopsis:

There is a proposed settlement that has been preliminarily approved in a class action lawsuit against Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. (“Toyota”) concerning certain Toyota Tacoma, Tundra, and Sequoia vehicles. Those included in the settlement have legal rights and options and deadlines by which they must exercise them.

You are included if you bought, owned, or leased 2005-2010 Toyota Tacoma, 2007-2008 Tundra, or 2005-2008 Sequoia vehicles (see FAQ 3 for a list of eligible vehicles).

The proposed settlement provides for a free Frame Inspection and Replacement Program to determine whether your Subject Vehicle’s frame should be replaced. If the frame needs to be replaced to meet the Rust Perforation Standard, replacement will be at no cost to you. The settlement also reimburses Class Members who previously paid for frame replacement due to rust perforation that satisfies the Rust Perforation Standard and that were incurred prior to January 3, 2017.

Anybody who lives in an area where road salt is used , knew about this issue years ago. I know several individuals that had frame breaks or rear suspension failures due to rusting on relatively new vehicles . Ford had similar problems with rusting brake lines and gas tanks .

I was referring to the rust problems not the settlement / recall
It was common knowledge in my area that Toyota trucks had a problem with premature rust failures including frames , suspension and body parts long before the recall notice
