I was a Chevy guy through and through but my last one was very problematic especially after 100k miles. My 2011 tundra with 209k miles has been trouble free and runs/tows like the day I bought it. 14-15 mpg on highway and small tank does suck but I plan to keep it until 300k unless a new tundra comes out with better mpg. I definitely drink the toyota reliability kool aid now.

Bought mine after seeing how well a friendís tundra held up when his had 170k miles. He traded his at 275k miles, still running like new, for a new 2017. His 2017 has a 38gal fuel tank where as mine has 26 gal.

I have a 2008 Toyota Tundra that has been driven really hard for 180K miles. So far I've had absolutely zero problems with the vehicle outside of a $17 auxiliary port on the dashboard going bad. These vehicles require nothing more than standard maintenance to basically run forever, and it tows my 2017 X10 as if it's not even back there. These trucks get horrible gas mileage (I average 13mpg), but they literally last forever. I can't really imagine buying any other half ton truck in the United States.

Love my Trundra, may use more gas, but virtually trouble free. After 14 years of owning, the only thing besides regular maintenance, my CV boots went bad. Other than that very solid. Runs like new.

You know it's built in San Antonio, TX right?

So if Harley Davidson opens a factory in Japan that makes it a Japanese motorcycle, right? Follow the money.

More ignorance spouted by our boi roadster.


If you follow profits, to Toyota North America, who invests tons of money into american jobs and infrastructure, which in turn is investing into our economy. Sure some profit goes over seas, who cares?


After owning a toyota truck, Ill never own another though. But I will refute dumb statements like this all day in favor of toyota.

Don't buy a truck for mileage, buy it for purpose. If it gets good mileage, then that is a bonus. Short changing yourself on capacity/power/whatever will leave you dissatisfied.
