Any thoughts or opinions? I have the big three dealerships local but have always been intrigued by the Tundra. Willing to look at Nissan also. Thanks

The emperor would appreciate buying a jap rig. They need the money over there.

Been driving jap rigs most of my life. I highly recommend them...

Which dealership offers the best service after the sale?

Other than an oil change it shouldn’t even be a necessity.

Don't buy new. Buy one a year or two old and get the depreciation value out of the way. Every vehicle on the road is a used vehicle and so will a new one be as soon as the tires hit the pavement outside the lot. At that moment you just lost 25% of the value. Haven't bought new in decades for this very reason. You can get used with full warranties and save the 25% which on the price of new trucks is significant.


You get out of life what you are willing to accept. If you ain't happy, do something about it!

I bought a new Dodge 3/4 Big Horn about a year ago. I like it.

I am really leery of the new Ford system that shuts the motor down when you stop. It may work fine, I dunno, but seems to me it would put a lot more wear and tear on the starter. Maybe I'm wrong.

The GM system doesn't shut the motor off, it shuts down a sequence of motor cylinders when you are out on the highway. I don't like it either, but there are ways to turn that system off. I don't know if the Ford system can be shut off or not.

Haven't heard what Ram or the Japs are doing to hit current CAFE fuel standards. I assume Ram is doing something like GM and Ford, not sure about the Japs.

Good luck finding what you like! If hauling and towing heavy, American is the only thing out there! If light work and driving hunting and around town go import! Just my 2cents.

I have been driving 4WD Nissan Frontiers for 32 years. Highly recommended.

Not sure if they still do, but tundras used to get horrible fuel mileage. Great trucks other than that.

I'd really like to buy a Frontier but I've heard so many negative things about Nissans in general over the years I'm scared to pull the trigger. You can find a 4wd crew cab Frontier for a few thousand less than a Tacoma.

I've had two tundras and have had excellent success with them. Did Chevy and Dodge ever move production out of Mexico?

For a year I've been tracking prices on a particular model Chevy, & one of the nations largest volume Chevy truck dealers is near. That one keeps the others in line.

I hear of the recent great deals possible during this slow down, a lure.

Not happening. The Silverado has lost some factory incentives or, dealers have raised prices knowing that a lot of folks think they can get a better deal right now. The same trucks, option for option, are 8% higher than they were in Feb. I don't know the answer, but in my neck of the woods, the already high prices have gotten higher.

I loved my tundra. Drove it for twelve mostly trouble free years till I traded it for my new Tacoma, and on the occasion something did go wrong, the factory bent over double to make it right. The only bitch I have is that the mileage was horrendous.

Is the mileage much better on the Tacoma?

I bought a 2020 Tundra in late August. Have 13,000 miles on it now. Computer is showing 15.8 mpg right now for mixed driving. Have no complaints at all with it.

Since leveled the front end and tinted the front windows.

It is “better“, but that’s a relative term. So not really, no

Fuel mileage and range is about the only complaints you hear from Toyota owners. I can't carry enough stuff in a full size long bed so there's no way a Toyota will work for me.
