Is anyone still having issues getting Toyota to honor the rusty frame issues on 1996 Tacomas?

Had my 1996 Tacoma evaluated when the issue of "rusty frames" came about. Dealer mechanic said nothing was wrong. I visibly seen rust on the frame but he said it was not substantial enough to do anything about. Now my frame is rusted way worse and truck is unsafe to drive. Toyota says extended warranty expired in 2011. No notice of that by the way. They are not willing to stand behind the product at all. Milly is who I spoke to and she was not friendly at all! Just wondering if anyone else is having issues with similar years and makes?

    I think another issue you may have is that the '96 Tacoma is not part of the class action settlement from 3 years ago. Found an article about the settlement which states:

    About 1.5 million vehicles are covered under terms of the proposed settlement, which includes 2005-10 Tacoma midsize pickups, 2007-08 Tundra full-size pickups and 2005-08 Sequoia large SUVs. Vehicles are covered up to 12 years from the day of sale.
