Vin is in 170003XXX range. It was first batch to Big Island but that is always behind the mainland deliveries.

Re: Under Carriage Rust Perforations - Advice Needed

Is that what 2 years on Hawaii get you? I guess it could be from all the salt, but that is so much rust! I would fight and fight and fight to have it repaired.

Ever driven on the beach/in the water? That is just an insane amount.

Never driven in on beach or in the water. We have rocky cliffs for coastline so it isn't even an option.

it certainly has seen salty puddles, but no driving in water

I don't know if this is affecting you, but I found it interesting.

Here's another thought I had re volcanoes and acid rain:

Re: Under Carriage Rust Perforations - Advice Needed

Servco sucks! I had issues with my FJ about the fender bulge and whenever a representative would come to the Toyota here on Maui they wouldn't call me to tell me they came. I think Funjunkie had problems with them too! But lucky for him, he moved to Cali.
