i ride my motorcycle to save on gas. a ninja 250 or a 500cc bike is a good, practical, and fun mode of transportation.

It's practically appreciated because you cannot find an 07 even today for that unless it has a ton of miles on it. Used car market is not as good today.
yeah i thats what i meant.

yeah i love my ’07 got it like 2 years ago today i think(damn i have had it so long it seams like.) got it for like 24k with 24’9** miles on it. now has almost 55k. to many road trips.

I will be tradinng mine in soon. I want a Raptor. I know it is a Ford but being tough as they are right off the show room floor and the pure Stiffy when around them. I want one. I do also miss my 08 Chrysler Minivan. Boys could be seperated , with the Taco it is hard to do so. Smaking in the head only works for one since it is hard to reach them both and drive safetly.

I LOVE the Raptors but WAY too expensive for me and even more impractical for commuter.

My next vehicle will most likely be an F-150 King Ranch. I like the Tacoma, but I love the F-150. I could also really use more interior room and towing capability, and the MPG is just as good, if not better, in the new F-150.

I can see this...I like the new F150's. Our other car is an Eddie Bauer Expedition EL, which I love as well.

I guess it depends on what they look like when I get to that point. If they look like teh new 4 runner then no. For what my wife and I use a truck for the Tacoma is a perfect size and we have her Corolla that gets 70-75% of the driving duties during the week.

Look into those f 150’s more. buddys dad had like ’11 or ’12 and what a POFS that was. plastic trim stuff broke a few times with just a light bump and was not put, some also come all messed up. also lots of trans problems and engine problems. also the head lights fu*** suck, the high beams were like our low beams. me and buddy past like 4 cops with the high beams on and did not know it. also passed 15 or 20 cars no one ever flashed us or anything. the lights suck!! also it did not ride as nice as the my truck or buddy’s FJ.

I'm absolutely amazed that some of y'all could even begin to consider going to something like a dodge or a ford after owning a Toyota. Need more room or more power/capability? Better fuel economy if you don't need towing capability too. Only one answer that makes sense to me-
