I've had 2 Toyotas in the past, and the new ones are living on that reputation. It's still a great truck compared to the other low quality trucks on the market, but still not even close to the same quality as past Toyotas. The 18 MPG really stinks, especially for a V- 6, the cargo light has to be turned off before getting out of the truck to keep from running the batt. down., the seatbelts seem really cheap, the paint seems very thin, and brittle, the cheap plastic tailgate handle broke and costs a fortune to replace. It's still a good truck, but like others here I just expected a heck of a lot more out of Toyota than this. IMHO we keep buying higher $$$ for cheaper quality. Will we learn?
Long-bed, leg-room, size of vehicle.
Better quality for truck, better parts instead of cheap plastic crap, easier access to oil filter, better paint, and rust protection, less bells and whistles to malfunction, simpler designs instead of fancy electronic buttons. Some of us use our trucks for what they were intended for.
