Toyota Canada has denied any payout as the 15 yr program has ended. I had the truck in for the recall in April 2010 and now the truck is dangerous to drive and unsalable. Also my youngest daughter had been driving the truck to Toronto for school, which has obviously put her some peril with a faulty frame.
I spoke with a Customer service rep named Steven ID# 5001, who told me that it has been decided and there is nothing that anyone can do. He would not give me a name or number of anyone above him to speak with regarding the decision.
This is one of many Toyotax that I have owned and I am more than disappointed, I plan to sue!!

I bought my Toyota at 118,000 , and after replacing little things here and there, it still runs like new and looks good. It has seen mud and water door high and have not got it stuck yet. I will have this truck restored and give it to my son (maybe) I do love my truck..

As with all Toyotas, this baby beast is hard to kill. I do all the maintenance on my vehicles and this one is a breeze to work on with easy access to "hard to reach" components. I get 20-22 mpg w/ the 3.4 liter V-6 because I don't abuse it; but when I need it to perform, it answers the call. It hauls rocks, gravel, mulch with ease and can yank out stumps like a fullsize truck.

Tacoma is miles above!! Plenty of power
for hauling, and it is just a great

I purchased my 1996 Tacoma a few
months ago, and have had nothing but
beautiful experiences with it. It
drives very well, has a buttery smooth
(if a little stiff) manual tranny.
The ride is a little harsh, but it's a
truck, not a Lexus. It tackles gnarly
dirt trails, and twisty mountain
pavement with equal tenacity. The V6
is tremendously flexible, and has a
wide, useful powerband. The only
complaint I have is the lack of power
options (windows, mirrors) but I
didn't buy the truck new, so I can't
whine too much. I'd recommend a
Tacoma to anyone who needs a capable
