At least they work. I have nothing against people who own Chevy/Ford but no one can say Toyotas don't last a lot longer. I guess they can say it, but everyone knows they're FOS.
You may be onto something there. I had a friend who was a loan manager at a pretty good size Nissan dealer in Dallas and he said that he saw where more applications on credit checks he did where people were turned down to purchase Toyota's than any other vehicle Apparently quite a few people couldn't get financing at Toyota because of credit rating. I thought a car dealer would sell to anyone but Toyota must be a little pickier....don't know maybe someone on here can chime in on that?

I love the reliability threads where guys with Fords, Chevys, and Goats talk about how reliable their trucks with less than 50,000 miles are.

Lol! So he worked at a Nissan dealer, but noticed folks couldnít get financing for Toyotaís? Why would a Nissan dealer be trying to use Toyota financing?
Toyotaís are no more expensive than any other make.

I get that they may be reliable, but thatís where any comparison to any manufacture stops.
They have less power, less payload, less towing capacity, get less mpg, still have a c channel frame, and donít offer a locking diff.

My 98 GMC still own... 212k miles

2005 Chevy. 312K miles still own

2017 Chevy still own 45k miles.


2 weeks ago drove the 98 1400 miles round trip. It’s more about how you take care of them.

My wife and I have over a million miles on Toyota trucks and SUV’s.

We have owned others brands.

But have never found any other brand with the worry free ownership experience of a Toyota.

We had a corolla that ate 2 water pumps before 85k and a tundra that worked and ran awesome but died at 194k. Got into a highlander that had a few electrical bugs in it that the dealer could never fix but other than that ran fine. For as much as we tried to be a Toyota family it just didnít work out. Weíve had Hyundai 250k and sold it for nothing moved my wife to Chevrolet Traverse and she claims itís the best car sheís ever had. I myself have been from ford, Chevy, ram, back to Chevy, and now back to a ram. Could not ever get over the dads at all the events I go to talking about how the Toyota Tacoma is the daddy of their offspring and how the Tacoma can do anything any other truck can and never lets them down so I never got one to daily drive they are as bad as the creedmoor guys and haters in my book 😆 I guess itíd be needless to say I do have an old 2003 Tacoma that has over 280k that still runs and drives great even after itís only seen one oil change in the last 30k miles of its life.

Was a Chevy guy for a while started to have some minor issues. Last month I won a F-150. Ended up getting rid of both and buying a Tundra. So far itís been good. Gas mileage does not bother me as I only put about 5-6K a year on my trucks and the 38 gallon tank is nice. Iíll report back once I have it for a few months.

Have a tacoma and love it - 2009 with 177k miles. My work truck is a 2013 2500 Silverado that is constantly in the shop, granted it goes through some pretty heavy abuse.

They are all overpriced and one of the worst investments to make. I do not get the brand loyalty thing with a vehicle, I have never been able to sell my used ones for more than what I paid for them new. Aint no different than buying a boat or RV, I still cant figure out why anyone would want a 400k dollar diesel pusher.

All you fellers that are investment gurus on here ought to know better than to brag about one of the worst investments you have made. Buy a new truck for 40k dollars, pay on it for 5 years and at the end of the note it is worth 10k dollars. Plus all the insurance and maintenance during those 5 years of payments.

Bunch of dumbazzes.

Loved my Powerstroke. Got concerned that every time I went to a Ford dealership I would see one or two with the cab pulled so they could do a little work on the engine. Considering my financial situation, I really can't afford to pay two or three hours at what ever shop rate is currently being charged, just so the mechanic can get to a fifty dollar do-hickey that quit working. That is about the dumbest thing that I have ever seen come out of any manufacturer. Sold mine and bought a Tundra. No regrets at all. Love it! Can't take it to the dealership without them trying to buy it back. The Tundra and Tacoma are about the hottest selling used vehicle in the market.

Love how the tailgate only has two hinge points, too!

Longevity is how I define best, and Toyota/Honda have been there for as long as I can remember.
I'm not interested in mpg if half my engine stays shut down all the time, payload if it won't run, etc...
As far as most reliable, that's a Definitely, not a Maybe.
The resale on them speaks for itself.
400k here in 2 separate Tundra, and I've changed a wheel bearing, that's it.

Yep, and the price of deer meat per pound after paying for a lease, feed, bows, guns, atvís, etc is a great investment also. Why stop at trucks? Hell, why invest in clothes and undies when you can go naked or dumpster dive for free stuff. See... we can all play Dave Ramsey wanna beís.

I am looking in the Austin area for one. Looked at the dealerships inventory. The TSS trim is nice, but looks like my budget is a regular plane Jane truck. Guess my old dodge 5.9 ain't worth to them what I thought it was worth.

I had a Tacoma for 15 years up until last year. My grandson has it now. I have a Tundra at present that I have had for 9 years. We have a Lexus suv(Toyota product) my wife bought in 2003 we use as a third vehicle commuter now. Not a wrench has been put on any of these vehicles with exception of general PM work. Nuff said.

I really do not care what y'all do, but I find it very ironic that the ones on here that are the investment gurus talk about buying and financing new vehicles which has to be one of the biggest wastes of money.

As far as your other comments, I do not know anything of Ramsey. I have made a lot of money mistakes in my life but I have gotten wiser especially with retirement looking at me.

I do not get the brand loyalty thing with a vehicle, I have never been able to sell my used ones for more than what I paid for them new. Aint no different than buying a boat or RV, I still cant figure out why anyone would want a 400k dollar diesel pusher.

Why is it hard to figure out? People buy Chevy, Ford etc and most, over time, end up complaining about it breaking down. That's a fact. I said most (if you can read) not all.

I've had most brands and they've all sucked in one way or another. My Tacoma = zero problems.

I understand a few people buy Ford and don't have problems. But the over all picture is most Toyotas don't have issues. You mysteriously don't see threads on broke down Toyotas.

Did someone in a Toyota steal your GF at some point?
FTR, as Tim would say, I'm a Ford driving hillbilly.
Son got my Tundra when he got his license.
FTR - I never said all Ford drivers were Hill billies. Well maybe I did
But you own that Tundra so you can be exempt. Unless you don't want to be.

As far as your other comments, I do not know anything of Ramsey. I have made a lot of money mistakes in my life but I have gotten wiser especially with retirement looking at me.
So anyone who invests should walk everywhere?

At least they work. I have nothing against people who own Chevy/Ford but no one can say Toyotas don't last a lot longer. I guess they can say it, but everyone knows they're FOS.
You don't know what work is. Call me when they make a full size truck.

Me either.
I judge them on towing capacity, payload, & last but not least power.
That may be why I have never owned a toyota

Given your profession, Iíll guess anything under 3/4 ton isnít a full size truck. If I was going to do a lot of your type of work, Iíd have a bigger truck as well.

Can confirm. I'd drive a Tacoma if I could get away with it. And I've had more 300k mile Chevrolet WORK trucks than RR can count...

All you fellers that are investment gurus on here ought to know better than to brag about one of the worst investments you have made. Buy a new truck for 40k dollars, pay on it for 5 years and at the end of the note it is worth 10k dollars. Plus all the insurance and maintenance during those 5 years of payments.



Bunch of dumbazzes.





This can be said of literally 99% of things we buy. Itís all relative to want people WANT to buy. We all make purchases people consider unwise. I wouldnít pay 6-8k on a lease or buy an 80k pickup. But Iíll pay $200 on a good seat at a concert I want to see. As mentioned,
itís all relative.

Youíd have maintenance and insurance regardless, so thatís a wash. Iíve seen many people say theyíd never do this or that. Until they had the money to and suddenly they do.
