Car Dealers Suck !
Received a letter from Toyota. Frame recall in the cold climate salt states. If frame has no rot they clean it and paint it with special sauce. If it is rusted through they say they will fix it.
I just got mine back from having the initial frame inspection. The report states "Misc inspected frame no rust perforation found at this time, will reschedule for undercoating. It also says "Performed EOD frame inspection. Frame is not rotted at this time." That gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. Hey Kneebiter, can you provide a list of do's and don't after coating since you have gone through the process?
haven't seen anything yet here either. probably just an American recall/letter at this timeCan someone post a copy of this letter I can print and take into my local dealer. I find it odd we haven't received this same letter here in Canada yet.
This is the stuff they use. http://www.ebay.com/itm/UNDERCOATING-Noxudol-300-black-soft-durable-rustproof-/291145366324?hash=item43c99dbb34&item=291145366324&pt=Motors_Automotive_Tools&vxp=mtr:thanks:Those would be the do's and don't. You go above and beyond by doing the wash scrape spots and rust X you frame every year since new. I keep mine garaged and spray the hose under it now and again. Would you have had it done knowing the pitfalls before having it done? Do you think this coating will really help keep the frame from rusting through in the future?:dunno:
