  1. Highlander 2nd Gen - Hybrid (XU40/2008-2013)
    Would this exhaust rust be enough of a problem to be deal breaker? It’s from Albuquerque.
  2. RAV4 4th Gen - Hybrid (XA40/2012-2018)
    Hi, One of the tailgate strut (left) has completely detatched due to rust and the one on the right side is also higly corroded. I have a limited RAV4 2015. The rust is solely located in this precise area. The cost to replace it is about 1000$ for each strut. I am currently looking at legal...
  3. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    My mom's '92 Camry XLE had some rust in the coolant system and I hadn't changed her coolant in several years. So a few days ago I flushed out the old coolant, shut the petcock, added some tap water and ran the engine for around 10 minutes to open the thermostat with the heater on full blast so...
  4. 4Runner 5th Generation (2010-2022)
    I have a 2016 4Runner, bought it used in 2019 back in a different state. The dealer had replaced the windshield before I bought it. Now, two years later, there's some nasty rust spots at the top of the windshield (photos below). Since none of the body shops in my area repair rust, I took it to...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
  10. Sequoia Forum
    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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. Sequoia Forum
    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?
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. General Automotive 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
