    Do you regret buying a base model truck?

    I purchased a new truck back few years ago that was optioned out. Whole works. It was cool at first but it started to annoy me. Back up/cross traffic sensors on the rear bumper worried me when I went off road. I could feel my ocd kick in when I saw all those painted trim starting to get...

    0% financing on 2020 Tacoma

    RE: credit pull. No, once you start pulling with different institutions, it WILL start dinging your score. Even a soft pull will affect it after several inquiries. Now, it’s not going to be a 100pt drop. But it will affect it some. I make it a point to keep the pulls to a minimum.

    0% financing on 2020 Tacoma

    I have yet to read a post of yours that was remotely helpful, thoughtful, or not demeaning. Keep up the good work. For financing, credit unions seem to have best rates. Although, if you buy from a dealership, I’ve had better rates quoted from the CU through the dealer financing dept than...

    0% financing on 2020 Tacoma

    I fully support paying cash for cars and having no debt, but unless you’re driving a $2k beater, not carrying full coverage, especially on a brand new vehicle, is just idiotic. Regarding the 0% deal, nothing new. It all nets out in the end. They get their money. Like @vintageracer was saying...

    Tacoma frame rust issues again???

    I used to own a 2017 Tacoma. Just got this in the mail yesterday. Seems like it’s not a prevalent issue to warrant a recall, but enough reported to have the warranty extended to 12 yrs. Thought they would’ve been past this issue by now.

    Are these aftermarket seats equipped with airbags? I’d venture to say no. And if they were, they’d be fairly expensive. I’d try out a factory option in a different trim or the cheap spacer option jnich mentioned.

    Towing at 80mph, and getting 14.4mpg. Sorry man, that’s not possible.

    Ok, will give you reliability, dealer service, will even throw in “instantaneous power.” But 14.4mpg towing? In a tundra??? Were you driving downhill with a tailwind?

    Resale on trucks are good. So make the trade. But not sure why CarPlay would tip the scale either way. If you really like the rest of the truck, there are many other options for CarPlay, or better yet, screen mirroring.

    Truth be told, I actually like console shifters. I always had to be careful with column shifters to not to past “D”, into M or lower gearing. I don’t even have to look when shifting with console.

    Nope, Toyota still has column shifters available. https://www.corwinauto.com/new/Toyota/2020-Toyota-Tundra-91406b4e0a0d04fe672f2396489292fb.htm

    Yes, like a real truck should! My old Honda Civic had console shift. 😜
