Can you believe a hit to the drivers side tire may end up as a total frame replacement? Apparently the impact slightly bent the lower control arm mounts. Waiting to hear from a frame shop, but the dealership is pushing for a new frame, which I guess is a good thing from my stand point.

I am glad this is a leased vehicle as I'm pretty certain I would not want to buy at the end of the lease now.

It's a good thing , sucks it happened to you but it is what it is . I work in the collision industry and this day and age manufactures are pushing more replacment and less repairs , due to materials they use

I guess the frame did what it was designed to do....... absorb energy. Sucks that it was my Tacoma.

So True. Just heard from the frame shop.......... getting a new frame! They said the frame was so out of whack it couldn't be repaired.
