Tacoma... as I was just getting out of one that was totaled. It was a great truck, 3 months from being paid off. I decided for a little bit more, I could have a lot more truck. I had all the confidence that the taco would've run forever- hoping I got another "wednesday truck" in my tundra...

To keep things fair- if another full size, would've been a GM most likely. I didn't even look at them though.

Second Choice was tuff. I got out of a F250 Crew Cab Lariat 4x4. I was getting hammered on buying diesel and repairs. My money no option choice was a 2012 F250 Lariat 4x4 , but I looked really hard at the F 150. I was torn between the ecoboost and 5.0 V8. I could not get straight answers on price on the F150's. I am very pleased that I bought the Crew Max.

Will never go with a Ford or GM product again. Both gave me a ration of crap when dealing with issue each truck had. Being the Ford with computer issues and GM with headliner issues. Shouldn't take 20x to fix an issue. I don't care how loyal one can be but that too has a limit as to how much B/S one can take. I chose the Tacoma because I knew it would be either a Tundra or a Tacoma. Toyota is known for reliability, durability, and resale value. Why would I go for a cheaper truck which isn't worth much after 1 year of ownership. I'm still undecided about going for the 2014 model. I do like it's looks as well as the interior. I don't care if it looks like another manufacturer. Pretty soon all will look alike. From what my grandson who works at a Toyota dealership, states they don't see any Tacoma's at all for anything. So that won't be an issue. A max out Tacoma cost $34k why not spend another $6k and get a Platinum Tundra.

My second choice was to keep my 1999 F150 for another 200,000, I didn't like the 2007 F150 BOXES! Hope they bring out more curves like the Raptor with a 5 liter motor, then I will look again.

I was just under the impression, that you could not get that combination.

Hence my mention of the "Sport."

I was nor willing to compromise the double cab long bed.

Maybe I'm wrong, but...

Was it a "regional" thing?

Assuming you meant double cab (4 door) and not an access cab (extended cab).

I went to the dealership to test drive and likely purchase a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. Got to the lot and saw the Tundra that had recently been traded in with only a few 1000 miles on it. Test drove it, waited for the erection to go down, reluctantly handed over the keys to avoid my wife berating me for impulse buying, didn't sleep for 2 days thinking of the truck, returned to the stealership and began the annoying dance of dealing with them, then closed the deal in a few days. Have never regretted a moment of it.
Never even saw the Jeep. I had wanted a Tundra for a long time, but they are a little hard to come by around here.
Now I get a rise every morning when I drive around.

I know this probably isn't the right thread for manufacturer bashing, but I agree with you on this one. My work car is a Chevy and had the transmission rebuilt 4 times before the car had 50k on the odometer. The last time they were in, they had to fly a tech in from the factory to try to figure out what was wrong. That took two and a half months. Tomorrow, being 18 months and 40k miles later, I am taking it in because it's slipping again. I think I'll stick with Toyotas and Nissans.

I wanted a Titan for a long time and drove a couple of them. I even went four hours from home on a Saturday to test drive one out of state. It ended up being in a lot worse shape than the pictures showed, so I walked and didn't buy it. (It was at a Honda dealer) My wife was with me and we didn't want the trip to be a complete waste, so we checked out the Chevy dealership across the street to see what they had. They almost sold me a 2011 Dodge Laramie edition 4x4 (Leather, Nav, crew cab, etc). It was a nice truck, but I was hesitant about Dodge and we couldn't agree on a payment. I ended up finding my Tundra a day or two later locally when I happened to just stop by a Nissan/Chrysler/Kia dealership. I was looking out of state in the first place because we don't pay local sales tax if we buy a car out of state, only state tax. (Saves about half) I ended up having to pay all the sales tax because I bought it in state, but I'm happy with the truck overall.

I drove a GMC Z71 Crew Cab 4x4 the same day I drove the Dodge, and the GMC was not nearly as nice as my Tundra.

FYI, I just read Consumer Reports' newest issue this week, which is their car issue. Dodge and Jeep were the worst two brands they reviewed out of 20-something brands of cars this year. Lexus was first and Toyota was 4th. Chevy/GMC was in the bottom third and Ford was only a couple spots above Dodge.
