'07 Tundras RUSTING already!

In what may be old news for some people, there is growing evidence that Toyota Tundra bumpers may be rusting much faster than they should be. While exact numbers are hard to guess, it’s safe to say this problem affects a very small percentage of Tundra owners. Based on our correspondence and the handful of forum threads we could find, this problem is mostly confined to areas of the country where rust is already an issue.

...Having said all of that, rust shouldn’t be present on vehicles less than a year or two old. If properly maintained, most modern vehicle finishes (paint and chrome) should stay rust-free for 5 to 10 years. Toyota hasn’t officially announced a problem (nor have they issued a TSB), but it appears that there was an issue with the chrome plating process used on the Tundra’s chrome bumpers and lug nuts. It’s possible this was a failure to plate these parts properly, and it could be that these parts were stockpiled in less than perfect conditions for a few weeks or months before they were added to these vehicles.

I see once again: It is now a Supplier Issue.

Also, new to the Tundra vocabulary: Environmental issue.

Was nice to read something about Toyota that did not include Best EVER

This is OBVIOUSLY the fault of the owners for not thinking positively enough about their purchase and not having the intelligence to maintain a 'good 'ole boy's' steed.

Toyota is never at fault for anything ever.... Remember?

just things that need to be verified... was it run through lots and lots of gravel at moderate to high speeds... and also run out in snow/salt/wet conditions as well.

if not, these owners need to own on Toyo, and beat them down some, news / letters / picket dealers....

You are all fools! Don't you know this is yet another Toyota triumph? They have invented the fully biodegradable pick up truck! Within 4 or 5 years of purchase, the vehicle completely returns to the earth. No more recycling hassles. No more pesky scrapyard eyesores. The bodies and frames dissolve before your very eyes.

Just add water.

Ok, well here is the first problem:

Buy a Man's Truck, Not a little Girlie-mobile that looks like a turd.

Of course they are rusting out, The (paste fake name here) supplier company used cheap metal even though we (the miraculous and wonderful Toyota) paid them to use the best in the industry.

Yeah Right! Death to Toyota!!

My buddy has one of the Toyota's that rust in half.

Here in the rust belt it is rare to se a Toyota with out nature holes in it.

I wonder if they will have to buy these back in 8 years too.
