If you havent heard about this and have owned a tacoma for a while you mightve been living under a rock- but Ive found 2 people in the past 3 months that didnt know about it so I am posting this as a PSA to Tacoma owners...
This is an old deal but I just cashed in on it so it is still live-- and is THE SINGLE BEST "DEAL" ive ever gotten---(if you can call it a deal) also obviously YMMV bc you need to have a registered insured 95-00 tacoma to cash in-- 01-04 tacomas were getting the entire frame replaced as well but Im pretty sure that is expired now...The truck is covered for 15 years from in service date so some 95-96 trucks will not qualify anymore due to the expiration of the warranty period..
I have clued other people into this deal that otherwise wouldnt have known about it so thats why Im posting it-- (one guy got $13000 for a truck that had 160k on it- the other had the frame replaced (worth about ten grand) on his 02 tacoma at toyotas expense)--- wouldnt you like to be handed a check for ten grand for a truck worth $2?
There is years worth of info on this if you want to learn more...
I bought a 2000 tacoma 5 years ago- paid 5k with 80k on truck-
Got recall/buyback notice 3 years ago when the program started--It passed...
Got another notice 6 months ago--
Finally got around to looking under truck last month-- Was able to shove my finger into holes in frame--
Took truck in- left same day with a rental---(paid for by toyota)
Today- Toyota handed me a check for $9200 for my truck with 123k on it...
