Hello folks,
I just had my 2010 5.7L RWD DB Cab totaled.
Makes me sick.
I bought it with 48k on the clock, it was totaled with 60K.
I paid about $23k for it. Which I think was a good deal.
Insurance company gave me $22500 for it.
Now I am trying to decide to buy a CPO or a 2017 Ford with all the discounts.
I hate the truck buying 'journey'

Thanks

That's a tough call. Are you ok with spending lots of time in a service department or would you rather spend your time actually driving the truck?

Exactly! The thing with the Tundra is the technology is 11 years old now, it guzzles gas. But it is reliable. Well except in August when it stranded me in limp home mode 40 miles from home. It turned out to be the Air Injection Pump System recall. Cost me an oil change, towing and uber rides totaling $200.
I was impressed and thankful that Toyota covered this $3k+ repair.

This is another reason I am looking at another Tundra. I wish I could wait until they refresh it, but I guess I can pay a premium for older technology, knowing that the long reliability will be there.

Thanks for the input
