    I’ll keep it as long as everything else stays afloat. Sacrificed many trucks to make ends meet. Doing good now and love this truck. Wish I could drive her every day

    All original
    I have had my 2000 Tundra since May of 1999. Really. I think they came out about 3 weeks before I bought mine. Question has anyone in the USA had one longer than that? I am just curious. I put 150,000 miles on it in the first five years that I had it. Since then I only use it when I need a pickup. I now have about 180,000 on it. It is a true cream puff if you only consider the mileage. However it has been challenged a few times. Now because I am retired it is used only during bad weather, or trips to the big box store, etc. Only thing done to it was replaced the factory radio, starter and radiator, besides wear items like tires and batteries. It still has the original breaks. I would be comfortable driving it anywhere at any time.

    Cool thread. I’m keeping mine till the motor blows up. Then I’m gunna Cummins 24 valve swap it and drive it until the world bands combustion engines.

    I'm kinda waiting to see if the new model will be something I like the looks of. If not I'll seriously consider trading in the 2014 for the last of the 3rd Gens.

    My son just turned 9 a few weeks ago. He is already saying that he wants my truck when he gets his license. :lalala:

    Maybe I’ll get him a used Taco and drive my Tundra for 12-15 years?

    I will have my 2000 limited TRD tundra 19 yrs .the 14th of this month! I bought it new and it had 43 miles on it. Now it has almost 376,000 miles,! I bought a 13 crewmax last year thinking it may die sometime soon but it still runs great and I drive it everyday. Toyota makes an amazing truck!!

    A little this and that...Broke now
    So my initial plan was to keep my Tundy for life. Then life happened. I'm currently visiting my kids on Oahu because my son is getting married!!! So I tossed him the keys to my truck and said Every man needs a truck. So Now I I'm waiting on the new TRD PRO to come out and see how that goes.Whatever I end up with I want to keep it for as long as humanly possible.

    Drove our 95 4Runner for 14 years, kids drove it another 5, current corolla since 2010, Taco 3 years, but too small, as my deceased father said " this will be the last vehicle I buy" ( then to buy 5 more). I love this truck for the ruggedness and simplicity. 15-20 years. I'm a little indifferent to change--I'm waiting for this internet thing to really catch hold before I jump into it!!

    I had planned on keeping my 2016 Tundra till the wheels fell off... Then I had a deal that could not be passed on a 2019. The deal got me out of a car payment I did not need nor want on the Audi Sq5, it put my dti in the right place to buy another home as an investment. I hope to keep the 2019 until the wheels fall off. I put on 20K to 30K a year mostly on the Accord Coupe. It's counter-intuitive I will take the Tundra on trips that are over 100 miles just for comfort. The only way I will part with the Tundra is if Toyota comes out with a 3/4 ton oil burner :)

    I will keep both of my tundras unless someone offers me a lot of money for them. I have always said I would sell anything I have except my wife and daughter.Everthing else is just material things!

    I kept my Tacoma for 10 years and 160k (2 batteries and a brake job in Toyota speak) LOL. Loved that truck, sold it to buy land, and bought a Fullsize to pull boat and camper. Not my daily, and I only put 5000 miles on the Taco the last year I had it, so....who knows, may keep the Tundra until retirement 2045 :)

    I drove my 2007 Camry for 11 years, and always appreciated the hell out of it- until I needed to go to the dump, haul gravel, go camping, etc...

    That car never farted- not even with 170,000 miles on it. I replaced a battery, an alternator, and that was it.

    My tundra is a rockstar compared to the Camry. I can outfit this 380+hp bastard however I want, and go ANYWHERE in it for 300,000 miles or more.

    10 years.... easy.

    Just traded my 2009 Tacoma in for a 2019 Tundra. The Taco had less than 28 thousand miles on it after 10 years almost to the day, so I'm planning on keeping this new Tundra for a really long time. White ones last the longest, right?

    I don't need the latest tech, hate cars, and not one to say I need that (new guns excluded). I plan on having my Tundra until the maintenance costs exceed the operational cost.

    the car I had before this one I drove it 200k miles and 14 years. This Tundra I planned on the same, but I've only owned it a month, and the resale value on these (especially the pro's) in So Cali, is so crazy that I have twice contemplated real offers from people willing to pay cash to buy it from me for more than I paid for it....one from a dealer....

    I plan to keep mine until it dies. It's paid off, so I'll do the regular maintenance on it and any minor repairs it may need. Only reason I'll get rid of it is if it's totaled or there is some major repair/replacement that I don't want to do.

    Just bought mine so at least three years
    I was looking at a new Tacoma and came home with this.

    I have no idea why I bought it other than I liked the way it felt while driving it compared to a Tacoma or four runner.
    I drove a Ford raptor as well and didn't need all the off road stuff so went with this one.

    waiting for the next gen tundra to come out then probably the last one for at least 6-7 years or longer. just missing a tad few creature/convienence features.

    only bought this one to hold us out until the next gen comes out, i paced it to be about 3-4 years after i bought this 2018 to replace it with the next gen.

    (we replaced the 2016 tacoma sport dcab with this platinum due to cab space for our 2 GSP dogs)

    also waiting for the next gen 4runner to come out to replace my 2014 LE. that will probably be my last 4runner.

    Hopefully for a long time. Just got it the way I want it. I almost hope the new Tundras-when redesigned, aren't that great so I am not tempted!
