  • 65,000 miles
My Tacoma is a leasure/work vehicle, garaged and maintained with 65K miles. Within this month I had a main exhuast hanger that was welded to the frame break away and take a large part of the frame with it, then thanks to my wife she noticed an oddity under the bed and it was that 2 of my gas tank straps had broken. I informed the local dealer (kolar) and Toyota, they responded by saying that due to its advanced years, they would not help and are not responsible. If I had been traveling down I35 to the cities at 85 mph and the tank came off, and it struck my or another vehicle this note would be worded very differently. I will provide photos, but I am yet to get my vehicle released from Toyota, not sure how that works, they will not release it to me until it is safe and they would not cover the costs.
