    I'm sure Toyota can do better.

    The jury is still out on the newer Fords but most of the folks I know that have them or the ones we have in our fleet have been reliable trucks. Pretty much opposite of your opinion for whats it worth. I think time will tell if they are a good truck or not as many of them start to stack up mileage and we will see if they have repeated issues. You might have a bigger sample size then me though so I will think about your advice as I'm a Ford guy.

    I wish Toyota would get their head out of their butt and build a more fuel efficient motor for the Tundra. I'm a Toyota fan due to how well built their trucks are and their longevity but I'm not going to pay that much money on initial price then stay stuck with a high gas bill on top of that for the life of a new truck. If that's the case I will just continue to run my F350 Diesel into the ground as I already pay more for fuel as it is.

    That's been my contention all along. For the leader of the industry with all the innovation they have in their cars to improve mileage you mean to tell me they can't make a more fuel efficient mid size or full size truck? Seems odd

    Go down to a Sacto/San Fran chop shop.....Tacoma's are easy to steal and renovate w/ stolen parts.
