    Yes, such as the Toyota Tundra, which is manufactured in America.

    The Toy's manufacturing is as much American as the big three.

    Go for it. Its a cool looking truck. Combine that with Toyota's reputation for lasting forever, you can't go wrong!

    If you feel you have to be talked out of it, then you probably don't need it. Right?

    I have a 95 T100 with 300,000 miles on it and I just had to replace the engine but other than that she is running great.

    More so than Chevy, Dodge or Ford!
    Engines and transmissions are Canadian or Mexican made!

    Sadly,........Toyota just designs a better 1/2 ton truck!
    This coming from a die hard Ford guy.

    I prefer Ford trucks, but the Tundra is a solid vehicle.

    Just keep in mind a new vehicle will lose 60% of its value in the first four years.

    Talk you out of it. . . . o.k.

    The $$$ will last longer, IF you don't spend it.
    The $$$ doesn't know the difference. Only you will.

    The Toyota Tundra is a BIG, well-built truck.
    (So are Ford, Chevy and Dodge.) But. . . I've not seen/read ANYTHING 'bad' about the Tundra trucks.
    :dunno:

    No matter what you buy, you're gonna have to put fuel in it.










    There. How's that??????
















    Buy it. You KNOW you want it!!!!!

    Do you need it? Can you justify the cost, especially to gas it up? If so, then go for it.

    A friend of mine who was a die hard Ford guy just bought one a few months ago & loves it so far. He checked out Ford & Chevy first but the offers just plain out sucked. He checked out the Yota and they gave him a great deal.

    The Chevrolet is assembled in Fort Wayne, Indiana but as far as the engines and transmissions I couldn't say.

    The Dodge (or Ram as it's called now) is actually built in Mexico. No thanks.

    I'd avoid the Ram but most 1/2 ton trucks will last forever with no more than the average owner puts them through. If I buy another 1/2 ton truck (doubtful - don't need it) I'd go with the Toyota or the Nissan.

    I have a 2010. So far a great truck. I'm not a big car guy, but the service at Toyota is so much better than at Ford and Chevy. Truck is always ready on time with a courtesy call. I remember taking my Tahoe in and getting the runaround each time. My explorer literally fell apart and I was always at Ford. At least that's the case where I live. I'm sure every dealership is different.

    I have a 2008. The ride on concrete highways sucks. It eats brake rotors. There is a problem with air induction pumps failing with very expensive repairs. Its power train is getting dated with the big three getting more power and better fuel ecomomy. I do not think the quality is any better than the others. It is governed so 105mph is about as good as it gets. Air buffeting with the windows open is unbearable.

    I don't know if that talked you out of it but shop around all the trucks. With the price of gas you may get a good deal on a used truck.

    Have you looked at the Tacoma TRD's? I like tundras, but i love the look of those. I drove my gf's dads tundra not too long ago and it seemed to drive great. not the best gas mileage, but thats expected when buying a truck.
