    I was wondering what you guys would do if your Tacoma was a total loss?(i.e. wrecked, flood, fire, asteroid hit...) What would you buy?

    Normally I'm not one to buy the same vehicle twice. I probably would buy another Tacoma though. Definitely not a car I'm done with cars. Might check out a Tundra or Sierra though.

    I don't tend to be loyal to a given manufacturer/vehicle. When I'm ready to buy a car/truck, I go to whomever I feel is giving me the most for my money, and the company who does that can vary from year to year.
