    Well, I finally caved and bought a Tundra. I must confess I was looking at a tundra 5 years ago but I didn’t want to buy a twerking truck with a C channel frame.

    Instead I picked up a 14 GMC Sierra z71 and regretted it almost immediately. The exhaust flapper valve broke on the way back from the dealership which took a month to diagnose and another to get a complete replacement exhaust system.

    That followed up with the Evap core, the seatbelt tensioners random no starts, stalling at speed, drivers door lock, alarm system, software issues etc etc etc.

    So I finally gave up and Bought a 2018 tundra 1794 mgm.

    This is my first Toyota, hopefully it lives up to the reputation! There’s nothing worse than relying on a truck for work and it letting you down.
