Toyota has issued a recall (at least here in Canada) of 1995-2000 Tacomas due to excessive corrosion in the vehicle's frame (chassis).

I hope there are no Philippine-based BOGs with Tacomas in the Philippines (Canadian models have metric gauges) built during those years.

Toyota is reportedly offering to extend the vehicle's frame's warranty for another 15 years. In some cases, Toyota said that they will buy back the defective unit several times its current book value.

Matibay talaga pre. Yung ginagamit sa African safari. Hilux Diesel model ang ganda. Pati yang Land Rover halos down ang sales nila.

Vega,

It was shown over CTV news here in Canada. I tried looking at the search engines, and mostly found forums and blogs discussing the problem. Here's a blog:

It would be best to check with your dealer regarding your truck's frame. :)
