    2009 Ram 1500 Laramie crew cab. Nothing wrong with it, it was a great truck. 100k on it and never saw the dealer. Truck was ultimate luxury, fully loaded. Moonroof, navigation, leather seats, 32g gas tank, stock infinity system upgrade, rambox, etc. It was just too big for my needs and I hated the short bed, which was even more limited by the rambox. Never had a passenger in the rear, what a waste of space for me. I do miss that Hemi though.

    Woke up at 5am with an explosion. Looked at the window and the neighboring buildings carport was on flames. By the time I got my cats my buildings carport was in flames. No time to get the car... Insurance covered it. Unknown cause of the fire... I loved that GTI... 6 speed MT Turbo. Such a fun car and great MPG. Was considering selling it just cause a pickup would be more practical for work and my lifestyle...

    This happened April of this year...

    2019 Tundra TRD Sport. It was a good truck for the 6 months I had it. Just too big and didn’t need the space or capabilities. Tacoma fits my needs perfectly. As great as the Tundra is, I have zero regrets jumping back to a Taco.

    Nothing. Apparently dealers aren't into salvaged titled 200k 2002 accords. Idk why.

    Traded in this 2019 Canyon SLE 4x4. Good truck with great power and phenomenal gas mileage. But wanted a taco long bed. Also the infotainment system was quirky and would sometimes interfere with the AC until I rebooted it. Transmission made me nervous too.20200725_170909.jpg 20200723_095544.jpg

    Do you have kids? If so how does it work out for you? I have a tundra and I love it but there is just something inside me that misses my old Tacoma. I always find myself wanting another one.

    I loved it a lot for about a year. The power was awesome and it cruised up steep mountains with little effort. Then it started using oil and fouling/coating the clean side of the air filter with oil discovered at 13 months. I’d try another Ecoboost, if it had the newer engine with both direct and port injection.

    In the first few months, the door lock actuators were occasionally freezing up below 32 degrees and a blow off valve was also stuck or not working properly after several months. It was in the shop for a week each time waiting for parts.

    So, it was 3 strikes and out.
    I’ve had several Ford trucks going back many years and not had any problems with any of them. Just lucky I guess!

    The crew cab back seat area was awesome for traveling and passengers and I liked being able to carry a large ice chest, wood chipper, pressure washer, cabinets and other large items safely inside the cab. I installed a tonneau cover on the bed.

    But, I like the ride/road feel of the Tacoma with Bilstein shocks. The F150 was a firmer, stiffer ride that would buck sideways over railroad tracks, helped somewhat by installing Bilsteins on the rear.

    With the Tacoma canopy providing good storage space in the bed, and only towing a utility trailer, it’s getting the job done well, so I plan on keeping it for a long time.
    It’s been nice to be able to always gain entry through the doors at any time, even at close to 0 degrees.

    Here was my focus st, the only problem I had was the clutch starting to slip from too much torque because it made around 400 to the wheels on the ethanol blend. It still feels like I'm missing something when boost season comes around and now that I'm on 35s I may look for a subaru outback legacy gt for a daily

    I had a 2013 Chevrolet Volt. I loved it. I think my record was over 9000 miles before going through a whole tank of gas. For my commuting and normal errand-running, I used ZERO gas.

    Then I got into flying paramotors, and didn't want to try to haul my shit with a little sedan. I started looking at used SUVs, then trucks, then Tacomas (I had a 1995 Taco for a few years and loved it) and saw how pricey they were used. So I looked at what I could get one new for. I broke even on the Volt, but got a great financing rate through my CU on the Taco. I'm going to keep this truck for a long time.

    I sold my 2006 TRD Sport of 12 years and bought my "retirement present" to me a 2018 Ford F-150 XLT with many, many bells and whistles on it. I loved that truck until around 6000 miles when the engine started making noise like a diesel. I took it to several dealerships and guess what!! "That's NORMAL" they said and said Ford would not allow them to troubleshoot or make any attempt to fix it. It drove me nuts at idle, and at the drive through next to a wall. "Knock..Knock..Knock.. I was completely embarrassed to drive it anymore. So I decided to go back to Ol faithful and reliable Tacoma. No where near as comfortable or roomy, but I can sleep better at night.IMG_0375.jpg IMG_1909.jpg

    2003 Ford F150 POS edition I'd bought new. Only 106k miles as I use my motorcycle most of the time but like a truck for winter. Shear amount of rust under the Ford was insane plus all the other money I had to dump into it in recent years.
