Toyota May Want to Buy Your Truck Back

Posted: Apr. 08, 2008 10:04 a.m.

Toyota Tacoma owners, take note.  The automaker may want to buy back your truck – and you should probably take the deal.  They’ll give you more for it than anyone else.

Ohio’s Akron Beacon Journal reports, “If you own a Toyota Tacoma from the model years 1995 to 2000, you might be eligible for a vehicle repair or better yet, a vehicle buy-back from the manufacturer under a special program."  After reports of premature rust damage on some of the trucks, “Toyota Motor Sales USA has announced a 'Customer Support Program' to extend warranty coverage on certain Tacoma truck frames for those years.”  Toyota plans a mailing to over 800,000 Tacoma owners, “instructing customers to bring their car to a local dealer to be evaluated.”  If dealerships discover sufficient rust damage to the frame, “Toyota will either repair or repurchase the vehicle. If there's no rust perforation present, the extended warranty of 15 years -- with no mileage limitation -- will be given for the problem.”
