  1. 4Runner 4th Generation (2003-2009)
    Hey everyone, I bought my first car this summer, a 2006 4Runner with 56,000 miles on it from a used car lot for just under $15k. I drove it home 200 miles and had it checked out at my local Toyota dealer, and to my horror the underside had significant rust that had been covered with an...
  2. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    On the passenger side of my vehicle, right under the front passenger side motor mount, is the RH side engine mount. I've already taken the motor mount off and removed the upper timing belt cover to get to my timing belt. On my vehicle I have to take off the RH side motor mount to completely...
  3. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    I got a 1994 Toyota Pickup (4cyl, 2wd) truck, and it seems to have a weird problem with warm idle where it "surges"—revs on and off repeatedly. It usually only happens when the brake pedal is down (???) but sometimes (rarely) happens when in neutral without the brake pedal down. I really don't...
  4. Tundra 2nd Generation (2007-2013)
    Hey all, I am looking to purchase my first ‘07 Toyota Tundra! Super excited. Quick question, I’m buying from a private seller who seems to know more about his after market additions (stereo, cap, etc) than the actual truck. I asked for some photos of the undercarriage and he stated the frame...
  5. Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    Leased this brand new back in July. Well, just took a trip and got a car wash, came to the families house and found rust specs/spots throughout the body. Anyone else deal with this with Toyota? It's my first new car, so I'm actually really... irritated atm. Not sure what to do now.

    Hey all, I’m looking at purchasing a 2005 Sequoia Limited 4x4. It has 159k miles on it and after test driving feels and sounds better than my 2013 Sienna. The truck comes from Utah and currently lives in Southern California in a dry climate. The entire underbody has been treated with anti rust...
  7. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Two years ago I had to change the retaining bracket due to the slide pins being stuck. Tried torque, hammering, lube, torch etc. They were just stuck in there, so I gave in and bought a caliper set. Two years later, it's happened again. Luckily i found a retaining bracket for cheap, so not going...
  8. Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Hi I purchased a certified used Toyota 2016 about a month and a half ago. I just found rust on my car door. Is this normal? And would you please give me some suggestions regarding how should I talk with the dealer about this issue? Are they responsible for this issue considering this is a...

    Will Toyota replace the frame on rusted 2007 Sequoias if the owner is not part of the class action lawsuit (didn't own the vehicle in December 2016)? Or will they just spray it?
  10. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Well, these cars are pretty old now, and I've replaced just about everything on it. It runs great, but it's frustrating how all the new replacement parts have rusted up so quickly. The calipers, brake plates, struts, tie rods, sway links, exhaust, various bolts, parts of the undercarriage - some...
  11. Tacoma 1st Generation (1995.5–2004)
    Hello Friends, I feel silly asking this, but my late father bought a 2000 Tacoma and babied that truck until his death in 2015. It has since been driven by my brother who almost fell over when the frame rusted through last week. (Note the photo) It appears to be a very expensive fix. At this...
  12. General Discussion
    Hey everyone, hoping to find some advice. I've been looking for a 95-98 T100 4x4 with the 5vz in it, in as good a condition as I can get for $4000. I live in a city-filled part of the salt belt and have pretty much given up on looking for a rust free vehicle here using the methods I'm aware of...
  13. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Installed in Sept 2013, 20k KM later, coil spring snapped, it was still fine last weekend?! Noticed the car was pulling to the right and had all kind of weird noise, especially when turning, suspected the mounts but when I checked, I knew the coil was shut since the car sat very low on the...
  14. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I've already had my sunroof replaced under warranty due to rust in 2013 i think. The other day I noticed the rubber around the outside of my sunroof was not sitting flush and lifting up. I took a look from the inside while sitting in my car and notice its rusting again. I take off the sunroof...
  15. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I chopped open the exhaust manifold on my Corolla to see what's inside, and how it works. The exhaust manifold is located behind the engine: This is where it mounts to: It consists of piping and a collector down to the flange: The manifold is the first part of the exhaust system...
  16. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi everyone, I just bought a '92 Camry. I live in northern New England but this particular car is from the south. As most of you know New England roads just ruin vehicles, the salt they treat our roads with does a number on cars. Since this car is from the south, there's almost no signs of rust...
  17. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Looking around for another car, including in this range of Corollas. It seems to me there are more Corollas with fender rust than Camrys of the same vintage or even older, like my '96. Is this just my imagination, or is this one place where 'economy class' shows up?

    I had to drive all the way across Kentucky to get this bad boy, well worth it because truly love it. that being said... its got some pretty good rust in the wheel well, not sure exactly what function is but its part of the frame (pics to come soon)... there is a bit of squeekiness in the front...
  19. Tacoma 1st Generation (1995.5–2004)
    Just bought a 99 Tacoma with 56K for $4500 the other day here in Florida. Everything is great about it except for a couple areas of scary rust on the front end. I did check it at the time, but somehow brushed the issue under the mental carpet because the truck ran so well. Now I'm having second...
  20. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Sorry for creating another post. However I couldn't easily find answers to my problem. So I have a 2002 Toyota Camry 2.4L XLE, which I bought last February. It has low miles on it and I hope I can use it for some time. When I bought the car, as far as I remember, there wasn't much rust on it...
