    Time to buy a new truck for personal use.Is this time of year good? I am going to drive and compare Toyota's full size, Ford F150 and Chevrolet/Gmc. Any reason to buy a 2013 over a 2012?. I want the best quality as I will be traveling in it quite a bit and ride comfort and performance are important.

    I just bought a 2013 Toyota Tundra CrewMax last night. Its my second Tundra and 4th Toyota.....Prior to my Toyota purchases I owned two F-150's...a F-250...and a Dodge Ram...

    Toyota Tundra is hard to beat !

    Good luck with your purchase !

    Anything Toyota, I have a Corolla and a Tacoma, had a 4Runner that I loved even more than my new Tacoma but I need a truck more than an SUV.

    Look up the new model Siverados and GMCs. Much better than the current style. If I could afford new, that would be my pick. Worth the wait.

    As long as you get 0% financing, you'll be sitting pretty

    If you do go with Toyota, I know a dealership in Kansas that will sell you the Toyota factory extended warranty for about $75 above their cost.

    You will save a little (~$500) by buying a 2012 now, over a 2013. There may also be some savings in taxes and insurance over the years you have the earlier model year. But, it may be offset by the higher resale value of the later model year. Once it's paid off, wouldn't you rather have a one year newer model?

    I have an '03 Tundra, it'll probably be another 5 years before I seriously think about a new one. We're looking to replace my wife's older Toy sedan with a 4x4 Highlander. The Toyota sale now includes 0%, 60 month financing. Would like to hear from the car sales experts how we can save additionally off the out the door price.
