    **Warning: predictable response from me below**

    Yeah and when the only comprehensive, long-term reliability study (with more than statistically adequate sample sizes) is brought up and shown to mirror all these anecdotal experiences, Ford fans dismiss it with some kind of irrational hand waving. I get it; everyone has their biases.

    All that to say, it would be one thing if the only evidence were anecdotal, but that is simply not the case.

    “Long term” is what we’re talking about here. All these tundra guys keep their trucks (me included) “short term”— why does it matter then??

    I didn’t keep any of my personal domestics because they weren’t reliable. I bought each one with the plan of keeping them for 10+ years. When a truck needs constant and expensive repairs in the first year or two, I get rid of it.

    My Tundra is 16 years old and has been flawless. I have no plans to buy a new truck until my current truck is 20 year old, which would be almost 10 years of my ownership. Then I’ll buy a new or nearly new truck and drive it for 10+ years if it’s reliable. My experience says Toyota build the truck most likely to meet that goal, so that’s what I’ll buy.

    Speak for yourself please. I generally keep my Toyota's for ~ 8-10 yrs, and ~200k miles. Usually with minimal mods and nor costly repairs over their lifetimes.

    Not to mention those who prefer to buy used trucks. I think it's widely known that a used Toyota Truck will have a longer life with fewer issues than a used Ford (comparing same year and mileage). Plus, they hold their value better.

    Not all. I think the % of guys who do keep them long term is higher among Tundra owners.

    And yeah if you don’t mind keeping a payment and paying a new down payment/taxes/etc every couple years, knock yourself out.

    Don't forget - Ford has the technology that they have for the PowerBoost because Toyota "gave it away" because they thought Ford would play nice...they gave away the farm believing Ford was in it for the longterm.

    interesting, thanks for the link

    what does that matter now though? the trucks that are out are the trucks that are out.

    Im not even sure I want a hybrid turbo type deal, I haven't come around to that fully yet, thats part of why that NA 6.2 V8 AT4 speaks so loudly to me.

    I love the hybrid turbo. I’ll never go back. Insanely fast, and in town driving is absurdly good.

    that’s fair, but you’re not in the majority here. For business reasons (partner in my firm), I have to get a new truck every few years for tax purposes.

    Hilarious! Love to see it. I know this sounds bad, but I’m pretty excited to see the Toyota fanboys on here complain of issues/recalls re their beloved QDR

    My plan is to go drive one when the time comes that way I can directly compare the yota to the Ford. and also the GMC 6.2 because, well, big V8s me likes, dont care if they are a little slower or less MPG. put a pipe on there and it fuckin will rumble with that displacement .

    so then get a less reliable domestic and get a new one every couple of years before it has problems?

    cool so you want people to have problems with their tundras just to excite your child-like mind. cool bro. go sell your tundra now and buy an f150 and be done with it. wtf is the point of posting some dumbass shit like this?

    Man so much ford bashing on here, your always going to find a bad apple or bad design with any make our model I don't care what it is, Toyota is no exception. Arguing this will get you no where, I mean come on we are still dealing with cam tower leak on the tundra and Tacoma frame rust still into the second gen models now. So is Toyota junk?

    I have many friends and co workers with ford trucks, they are popular in my area because the Ford plant used to be here. I had more issues with my 17' tundra they then did. So you can go in circles trying to cast one as better then the other.

    I'm with the those who are not excited about a ttv6, especially a motor designed for Lexus cars being re hashed as a truck motor. They want something ground breaking them come out with a motor built from the ground up as a truck motor. I'm also not excited about the coil rear suspension... Yes it rides better... Vehicles with coil rears that tow just equal sagging and squat in the rear. Airbags could solve it but now we are introducing another component to fail later on.

    I did too. Never owned a domestic in my life prior to this 21 Powerboost. Finally realized I was paying a huge premium for their marketing department covering for outdated R&D.

    nope i just dont memorize the vehicle history of every single member on here. If you got rid of your tundra and got a ford, why stay here to say stupid shit like hoping tundras have recalls and quality issues so you feel better about yourself for buying something different?

    Man, so many Ford defenders on here feel the need to get their panties in a knot if you point out that Ford's reliability isn't that good. Sorry some of us want to keep our trucks for 15+ years with a lower probability of having issues...? :notsure:

    If I had that mentality I would 100% choose a Tundra. But for me personally, life is too short to drive 1 car for a fifth of my life lol. Thus why I buy every 2-3. If that.

    I don’t see really any Ford defenders on here. Mostly a bunch of Toyota guys on here getting nervous Bc the f150 is better than the tundra in every possible way besides “reliability in 5-10 years”

    I’ve owned 4 Toyota’s and two tundra in my life. They’re good trucks, but lack in a lot of ways. If you keep your truck 10-15 years at a time that’s awesome!

    I wish I could, but cannot, and even if I said I was, I wouldn’t. A vehicle is a depreciating pile of metal.

    Congrats on your new truck. Looks very nice...for a Ford ;). Have tried-out the generator yet? Do you think that feature is worthwhile?

    lol. Hey bud, I’ve been on here since 2017. I’ve owned two tundras, and now own a powerboost f150. All the Toyota wing nuts come out of the woodwork when they get scared they’re buying an outdated truck at a premium price— so they bash Ford Bc “it’s trash, and will break down”

    My comment was only to show that even the venerable Toyota brand isn’t immune to issues.
