    The crappy 8 speed tranny in the 2015 with the 6.2L eco tec is what got me into a Tundra. "Magic tranny fluid" dealer fix for the obvious torque converter problem was the last straw for me. I had big GM trucks/SUV's of one variety's or another since 1981 before that. Never going back! They were all still better than my first new Ford truck though...LOL

    The infamous clunk sound of the transmission when downshifting to lower gears, fuel injector sound like an exhaust leak when throttling, causing slight loss of power among other things from what I've experienced in my 2016 Chevy Silverado.

    I mean it has some good things, but not good enough to warrant keeping it for a long time.
