The frames of the 4th generation of Toyota 4Runners have rust corrosion issues

Assembled in Japan, Toyota 4Runners that were manufactured between 2003 and 2009, which fall under the 4th generation of these vehicles, have recently been found to have rust issues on their undercarriages. These automobiles are also known as Toyota SW4 and Toyota Hilux Surf. Because the frame of a car is the primary support structure of the vehicle, if it is rusted, it can lead to essential components failing, which may, in turn, result in serious accidents. The following are the specific Toyota 4Runner models that have this problem:

  • Toyota 4Runner SR5
  • Toyota 4Runner Limited
  • Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition

If you have one of these automobiles, you should pay close attention to the condition of its undercarriage and, if you notice rusting, you should take it to a repair shop for investigation. However, it is essential to know that you should not pay the cost of fixing this issue yourself, as Toyota Motor Corporation had been aware of the rusting problem for a long time, which means that the company can be held responsible. With the expert assistance of our attorneys, you will recover the money you need from Toyota to have the frame of your car replaced.

Furthermore, if you went through a car accident due to the rust problem of the frame of your vehicle, the financial compensation you will receive from the company will also cover the cost of your medical expenses. Regardless of what your situation is, we advise you to reach out to our lawyers as soon as you notice this issue on your car, and we will promptly help you file a claim with Toyota Motor Corporation to obtain the compensation you are entitled to.
