problem #1

Front subframe rusted and rotted through. Called Toyota and filed a claim but no real help, as I was the only one to register with them. I find this hard to believe given the trouble they had with the Tacoma frames. Thought I would get at least another 10 years out of this car. Currently at 191,000 miles and running strong no rust anywhere visible.
