    Granted we all bought a truck (Tacoma specifically) for either utility, offroad capability, or maybe just for the reliability and resale.

    But I’m curious what made you buy a Tacoma and if you didn’t need the bed (ie: don’t have hobbies that require the bed, aren’t a homeowner, and maybe your 10 years younger what would you have bought instead?)

    I’m bored on a Saturday so ignore the shit post lol

    I’m actually looking at getting into a Corolla or Mini after I graduate if I afford payments on top of student loans. Otherwise I’m staying with this.

    Really didn't need a truck. Wanted a truck. So if I was to purchase a vehicle and trucks didn't exist and I had to make sure it was DD comfortable and not boring still...I have no idea. Because cars all suck these days and aren't really anything special. Although I do stare at challengers a lot but Chrysler is shit..so again. I don't know.

    No idea... maybe a Chevy Camaro, in blue, with black or white stripes down the middle. But that'd have to only be a summer vehicle.. It'd never manage in the New England snows.

    I've only driven trucks for the past 17 years. Had a Tundra before I got my Taco in early '17.

    Not a lot of experience on my end, but the new corolla is kind of a hoot to drive with a stick.

    The mini can be a lotta fun too, but idk about the reliability fwiw

    Easy lol! These mods don’t play.
    The Infiniti is so nice though. Second to maybe a Lexus

    Lol, you didn’t have to fix it. I got banned for 7 days for posting a Donald Trump meme. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did think I was smitty and ban me indefinitely
