Toyota doesn't stand behind their products anymore

I own a 2005 Toyota Tundra and brought it in for a frame inspection in March 2014. They told me everything was fin. The transmission went and I put about $5,000.00 into that. I heard a noise in the front end took it to the mechanic and he tells me the frame is rotted through. Talked to Toyota and they said they wouldn't do anything for me and I was looking to buy a Lexus. Not anymore I'm switching to Acura. I haven't heard that Honda's frames are rotting out. My vin # is 5S481513 in case Toyota would like to know who wrote this

Best Truck Ever!

I bought this truck with 6K mile on it. It now has 265K and is as strong as the day I brought it home. I've owned a lot of vehicles, but this Tundra has been, by far, the most reliable, comfortable and easiest to maintain. Highly recommend this truck, from 2000-2006 range only.
