Sold!!!

Sold the Tundra this afternoon. Had it listed for $17,000, sold for $16,000. Dealer quoted $11,000. With my mom's health getting worse and my grandfather's as well, its time to downsize into something they can actually get in and out of. Thinking a used Rav4 or Highlander. I think a car would sit too low for them to get in and out of without having to bend over or crawl out. Truck is just way too high up, and not being used as a truck anyhow for the past several years now.

Hate to see it go, but not exactly what is needed at this point. It was a great 9 years, longest I've ever owned a vehicle, but it just isn't working anymore for what is needed now. Probably looking at walkers and wheelchairs so with that being said there's no way the truck was going to make the transportation cut. A Rav4 or Highlander sits at just about the right height for easy transition from a walker or wheelchair to the front or back seat.

LOL, that was a joke I posted, those Scions are the worst riding vehicle I've ever been in. I'd never own one, it was bad enough having it as a loaner for a few days. Sure glad they quit using those things for loaners and went to the Camry and the Rav4 for loaner vehicles.

No more toys. Don't use them often enough to worry about having that type of stuff. I can drive my Bronco 2 in the same placed I could take an ATV, and the Bronco 2 is a hell of a lot cheaper LOL. Wouldn't waste money on an ATV side by sides are far more comfortable and yep went that route once and won't do that again either. Still have grandpa's Tundra if I need to move anything, but like I said haven't used the truck for a truck for several years so not going to miss it, or the insurance and upkeep. Been driving my Bronco 2 99% of the time now anyhow, just drive the tundra once in a while just to keep the battery charged, other than that not going to miss the truck at all.

In that case you should buy a side-by-side. They have turbos and nearly 200 hp now. You'll want one with a turbo.

Yeah I know. May as well drive it on the highway...wait around here people do LOL. By the time you configure one with a cab so you don't freeze your ass off in the winter you can buy a truck that comes with a cab, heater, and AC from the factory LOL. Polaris actually has a Ranger now that comes with a factory equipped cab, heater and AC, but its like $28K.

Not sure right now what's in the future. I just know the truck had to go and a more economical easier entry/exit vehicle is needed ASAP before my mom gets out of the hospital...probably looking at several weeks or months by the time they get stuff figured out and rehab done. They still aren't 100% sure what she has so its still a huge guessing game but she's so weak that there's no way she can come home yet.

I wouldn't mind having another side by side, but right now that's pretty low on the priority list LOL. I used the hell out of the Yamaha Rhino when I had it but it just wasn't a good utility machine for the property, that is unless you wanted your yard destroyed as the rear axle was locked in it, unlike the Turf-Mode that Polaris has and a few other similar options in other machines, the Rhino was not cut out to be used as a utility machine, it was great up in the mountains.

Get you a used Land Cruiser or LX470...you can pick up a 100 Series (1998-2007) for $15k. They sold about twice as many LX's in the US, so you'll find more of those than you will LC's and they'll be cheaper.

Build quality is awesome. Great vehicles (I own a 07 LC and 04 LX).

Trying to save money not go into debt farther. Land Cruiser is considered a luxury vehicle so insurance would be ridiculous on it, worse than the Tundra. That's why I'm looking at the RAV4. More fuel efficient than another V8...city driving is terrible enough without adding a V8 to the mix LOL.

Love the Land Cruisers but not something I would use as a commuter or main transportation vehicle for someone that is wheelchair or walker bound.

My insurance didn't change. MPG will be in the Tundra range, but you get a better vehicle than the RAV4.

Trying to get better fuel economy, another V8 isn't on the list right now LOL. I'm kind of hoping Toyota has big changes for the tundra coming in the next few years so when I'm ready to jump in another truck again I can jump back into a new Tundra. Right now priorities are more important than getting another gas guzzler. Sounds like my mom may end up at a Hospital in Salt Lake City Utah indefinitely, so the Rav4 makes more sense, still enough room, but better fuel economy, easier to park, etc. Entry and exit of the vehicle is a huge issue now too .
