    I was happy with summit auto glass when they repaired some chips on my last truck.

    Be prepared though, he told me replacement windshields on these trucks is a lot because the front facing camera has to be recalibrated.

    Nah this one with options was probably more then I should've spent even though the dealer did sell it for MSRP + sales tax and a minor doc fee. Honestly it's so much power as is when I want to get into it that I don't feel like I need the hybrid. If it was more of a plug in hybird that let me cruise up to 38-40mph on battery alone for like 10 miles I'd totally be down for that since it'd cover groceries and most short around town trips I do.

    I love it.

    It's BIG. I thought I wasn't going to like the PVM/360° cameras but it's so incredibly helpful when parking since it's SO long and wider then I'm used to. I really wanted the crew cab 6.5' bed and is worth it to me to deal with the length and it'd doable for where I live. Other then that the engine power is great, fuel econ is better then my 2nd gen Tacoma was and the creature comforts inside are super nice (heated/vented seats). The big 14" display is nice with multiple camera views displayed at the same time but beyond that it's kind of obtrusive and blocks access to the stuff/ledge on the dash just behind it. I really didn't want the panoramic/long sun roof but now that I have it I have to say it's super nice in the grey winters to get a little more light in especially with the darkness of living so far north. It's very easy to drive slow and easy to get on the turbo's and have fun. Handling is better then I expected for such a large truck but my old stock Tacoma was naturally a little more nimble. Maybe when I get used to the bulk I'll be able to corner it better. The camera resolutions are amazing compared to the 2.5 gen Tundra or even the 3rd gen Tacomas I've been in.

    I REALLY like how smooth the auto start stop is, and how I'll stop and then it'll give me the message to press the brake further to actually stop the engine so it lets me decide if I want to stop it. My wife's 2020 Subaru is super obtrusive with this and you stop for more then 2 seconds and the engine's off. I also REALLY like the lane keeping assist compared to the wife's Subaru again, on the Tundra it gradually increases resistance on the steering wheel to correct and it's a very subtle hint but I find that I correct it myself before it progresses further. The Subaru is no correction no correction, no correction, then it turns back into the lane abruptly and forcefully causing almost a slow to moderate speed ping pong effect between the two lane edges. I really hate it and turn it off when driving the Subaru. The Tundra's seems much more natural and something that helps or augments the driving experience rather then taking away from it.

    The interior has a lot of nice little things that make life good. Such as on the dash ledge behind the 14" screen, a great place for a gopro, gps mount, or dash cam they have a 12v socket. The center console is super nice, it looks nice and feels modern. There are occasionally hard plastics but they are in non-viewable places from sitting in the cab and they are in spots that need more durability. The toggle switches under the display are great for gloves and kind of make me feel like I'm in a space ship, sort of.

    Negatives: The key fob feels light weight and cheap plastic'y, disappointing for a $60k truck. My wife's $29k cost-when-new Subaru's key fob is solid and feels quality and premium but it is noticeably heavier. I feel the Subaru key fob weighing my pocket down but I don't feel the Toyota key fob at all due to the lightness. There's an intermittent low-grade whistling noise in the vents when the dual zone climate control isn't sync'd and is on a medium fan speed or higher. It's not all the time and it's not fan noise like a bad blower motor. If it doesn't go away I'll do a warranty claim while it's under bumper to bumper coverage. The rear seats don't stay up when you lift them up. I'd prefer to have a removable under rear-seat tray and seats that fold up with a leg style support so I could have more room in the rear for the dogs or just stuff. The underseat storage area is built into the cab and it's what the seats rest on for support. The underseat storage area is nice and I'll have to try and fit my rifle in there. It's not lockable though. Transmission hump is mildly annoying but it's fine. Due to the size of things if I accidently drop something on the passenger footwell it's hard to lean over and pick it up. My bigger gut may be part of the problem there... :anonymous:. Notifications from the infamous Toyota app are a little oppressive though I can turn those on or off on my phone. Get out of the truck and walk in the house. 5 minutes later the app freaks out if the doors are unlocked and sends me 2 notifications. Same if I put something in the back seat the app "reminds me" to check the back seat after about 5 minutes. It's free for a year and then I'll probably not pay for it. The front grill design I don't like on the Limited's. When remote starting the truck via any method it turns off the truck when you open the door. I feel like they could've added logic that detects the key fob when you walk up and NOT shut the truck off. The wife's Subaru works that way so it doesn't shut off when remote started and you get in. The Subaru won't let it shift out of park unless the key is detected.

    I learned that pressing the lock button 3 times and holding on the 3rd press will remote start the truck without the subscription/phone app remote start which goes over 4G. So all the hubbub about needing a monthly subscription for remote start is complete fear mongering. At least this works in the Limited trim that I have.

    My mom bought a brand new rav4 a couple months ago and my sister just picked up a 2020 outback so I know exactly what your talking about. My sister hates the lane keep assist on her Subaru and turned it off after about 5 minutes. I like the looks of the tundra and would definitely be on my list if I was in the market for a half ton or even a moderate 3/4.

    lol forreal, a tundra is 1/2 ton. Its got 1/2 ton payload and towing capacity, thus its a 1/2 ton.

    a moderate 3/4 would be a titan xd.. max payload is like 2500lb or something like that

    Where I would need more space then a 1/2 ton but not the full payload and price of a 3/4 ton.

    That was my thought exactly lol...thats the only truck that touches the payload of the 3/4 ton rating that isnt the same build as the traditional 2500/250 class of trucks
    so youre getting a titan XD lol?

    For what its worth, an F150 shares a cab with the F250, F350, F450, and F550.. you can get an f150 in supercrew, 6.5' box trim and its basically the same size as any standard f2/350 just sits a bit lower to the ground. In this, most popular pickup in the world, senario, you dont get any additional space and no less price, but you do get a bit less payload... so why would anyone get an f150...?

    Ive always said I would get a gas HD truck over a 1/2 ton. But Ive been known to not follow my own advice lol. New tundras are sick, probably the only 1/2 ton id consider.

    Has anyone had any issues w/ Peterson Toyota in Boise. I tried to buy a TRD Off Road from them and it felt like they were doing everything in their power to NOT sell me the truck even though I was already prefinanced w/ my bank.
