    Hi guyz I am out to buy a truck/suv again. Its been 7 months since I sold my 2010 tacoma trd off road. I went to stealership and test drove couple of cars. I really liked both trustly 2010 Tacoma TRD OFF ROAD ( black sand pearl ) or 2010 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4x4.

    What you all think ill be better off with in long run Taco or Pathfinder. With Taco I have to put on topper regardless to keep stuff out of sight.
    Does anyone have recommendations on durability and reliability of 2010 Pathfinder SE. Both Taco and pathfinder have 4.0 Engine, but nissan is stronger and same towing capacity.

    I am planning to pick one up this evening or tomorrow morning.
    Tacoma I look at was $31,000
    NIssan I look at was $35,000

    ----------------

    Just bought an 2010 FJ CRUISER instead.

    Why did you sell your truck originally in the first place a few months ago??

    Edit: Nvm, I saw you older posts about the deployment. I'd say go with another Tacoma. First of all it seems like you really enjoyed owning your previous truck although the timing of things didn't permit you to enjoy the ownership. Perhaps you should go for the double cab on the Tacoma as a go between for the benefits of a full back seat similar to an SUV. Now... in regards to the Nissan I can't say anything bad about it either. The wife and I were looking at one in 2008 but she preferred the Ford Explorer so that's what we bought. I would have been thrilled with her choosing the Nissan but it was her choice for her daily driver. Which manufacturer is offering better incentives such as cash back or low APR. That may be the deal breaker. Make them work for your money, sounds like you worked hard to earn it.

    On a side note: Thanks for your service to our country. I appreciate it!

    Wait.. you sold your 2010 tacoma trd off road... to buy a 2010 tacoma trd off road? :confused: IMHO I'd go with the Tacoma over the pathfinder, especially with the $4000 price diff, which means like an extra $80 a month in financing.. you need to decide if you want a truck or SUV, both will probably last you a long time

    If you are thinking SUV's why not get a 4-runner?? Much better than a Nissan.

    ^^ The new 4 Runner Trail Edition is $40,000, but it is packed with options, such as the sliding "tailgater", adjustable uphill and downhill assist, sun/moon roof, and seats and transfer case shifter from the FJC.

    I believe you'll get some pretty biased answers here. You're probably better off flipping a coin if you liked them both equally.
