You won't get anything unless you document that it is a problem. Take a look at my post from 2/9/2010 or file a complaint with the NHTSA:

If you have a corrosion issue and would like to issue a safety complaint, please visit the NHTSA website: ODI - Office of Defects Investigation

You can search for mine, it is complaint number 10307840.

Here is my complaint:

In NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 09V444000, Toyota recalled model year 2000-2003 Tundra Vehicles due to excessive corrosion of the rear cross member that may cause the separation of the spare tire. The 2000-2003 Toyota Sequoia vehicles share identical frame cross member and spare tire mounting arrangements in which excessive corrosion in the rear cross member and spare tire mounting location can cause separation of the spare tire stowed under the rear cargo load floor which would result in a road hazard. This separation of the spare tire or mounting bracket could cause a crash. Also, corrosion of the rear cross member could affect the rear brake lines and the proportioning valve, resulting in diminished braking capability. Any separation of the spare tire and/or diminished braking capability could increase the risk of crash to affected vehicle and/or a road hazard to those traveling nearby.
