    I have been driving Toyota Trucks for 30 years .I love them but am not a fan of the new big Tundras . I started with a T100 and loved it . I then bought a 2000 Tundra and finally a 2006 .
    Have also owned 4 Camrays and 3 Corollas . All great vehicles ! My 2006 Tundra only has 116000 km on it . There was a recall on the frame in 2015 and I took it in and they inspected the frame and said it was good and applied a special undercoating in August of 2015 . I,ve had the undercoating touched up every year since then . I had the truck in last week for an oil change and another touchup of the undercoating . The local shop noticed that the frame is completely rusted thru around the front cap mounts . Toyota isn't even having a llok at it !
    Any suggestions on what to do next .

    Damn. I’m sorry, seems like the inspections should have caught it and those signing off on them that they are rust free should be on the hook for a replacement frame. I know others have said once it’s sprayed, Toyota is off the hook, but I have no personal experience with this. Others who have may chime in.
