Yea I am shocked, makes all these test results useless to me. Turns out I don't drive on my phone like a woman so I can brake the vehicle myself.

Also found it weird low pedestrian impact safety lowers vehicles safety. Does that mean a semi truck is less safe to drive because it's turns an adult into hamburger? I don't think so

Pretty big difference. I wanted a Tacoma but I thought the Tacoma was pretty cramped inside which steered me to the Tundra. Also, the 5.7 V8 offers a more satisfying drive. It does suck to park sometimes but its not a big issue for me.

If low crash ratings keep an idiot from buying a car that puts others at risk that's a good thing

Pedestrian-impact scores also dragged down the Jeep's overall rating, as did the lack of lane-keeping assist and automated emergency braking. (Note that the latter will be available in Europe-market Wranglers starting in early 2019 and is available now in North American–market cars.)"

Issues with ease of installation wtf we don't need them commenting on how long it took to install a car seat lol. Also I guess if you're nice you'd worry about pedestrian impact scored but I don't give a **** about those. Read after the bold as well that "these will be available in later years and all US vehicles" LOL


The bit I quoted is related to the part that you care about.

No one is buying a semi for the pedestrian safety ratings. But it makes sense to me they are trying to improve safety for all aspects in the engineering of a regular vehicle.

Also if the lane assist thing and auto braking features reduce the number of idiots rear ending me I'll take it. We're headed to autonomous vehicles anyway.

give me autonomous cars and more racetracks and I'll be happy. I don't care about driving 99% of the time I spend in a vehicle

I know TACO’s are primarily used as an appliance but do you taco owners ever get bored of your cars?

Genuinely curious because I have considered a truck a few times.

this has been my saying for years. Commuting on the roads sucks most people are so clueless and dumb while driving.

I want to walk/ ride a bicycle everywhere and only drive for fun/ racing.

Planet earth would love it too. Give us all electric self driving cars that use solar or wind power and the few people who care to own regular cars would be so small. You’re welcome planet earth.

Lots of OT talk in here. Typical back and forth I'm right you're wrong.
Tacos are awesome. Best midsize truck hands down. Decent tow rating with ultra reliability. Keep it up Toyota. Making great cars well.....forever.
Jeep=Never
MPG= who cares, it's a truck
Size difference between a tundra and Tacoma=massive.
I park in the furthest spot away from anyone in my tundra. I get about 12mpg. My tundra sits in bubble wrap. I won't drive it in the rain just so I can keep it clean. I have my dedicated IDGAF vehicle that is awesome. It gets **** mileage too.
I rarely DD anything other than my work truck. I bought both my vehicles for a purpose and both fit that purpose excellently. I won't be getting a different vehicle for a long time barring a accident or something.
If I was in the market for a midsized truck there is only one choice, Tacoma. It does everything well. I don't care about creature comforts. I don't care about car play. That garbage is for tech dorks. A truck is for utilitarian purposes. Even though you may rarely use it as such.
The most important thing for me is getting from A to B. Reliability is part of that equation. Toyota wins hands down.

You forgot one key point, they’re highly resistant to depreciation. That’s still my favorite part about having one outside of the whole reliability thing.

Agreed, that's lower on my list though. Sold my 06 tundra I had since new Sept 05 last year for 14k. Had 93k or so on it. It wasn't perfect but mechanically sound.
First guy to come see it bought it full price, no negotiating. I knew at that point I should have sold it for more. I thought I priced it fair value due to its flaws. I had inquiries from afar and all seemed interested. I called one potential buyer to tell him I sold it and he said he knew he should have skipped work the day after I talked to him to come look at it. He seemed pretty disappointed.

It's winter. I hate cleaning it in the cold. That's what I have my other vehicle for.
Are you going to drive your Porsche in the winter when you get it? Didn't think so. Even that grass grazer has his s2000 parked for the winter. We have 3 vehicles for the 2 of us. 4wd on all 3.
