    Fellow members, I just wanted to get something off my chest. I drive a 2017 white 1794 Edition and usually get two comments about it. first, its a beautiful truck and second, "don't Tundras get terrible mileage". I explain to everyone that I did not purchase this truck to get great mileage, I bought a truck with a big V8 and tons of capability. It is big, stout, and comfortable. It's fast and will do everything I need or want it to do. Finally, it is a Toyota and, with care, should be around for years to come. If I had wanted one of the higher tech Ford, GMC/Chevrolet, or Ram trucks, I would have bought one. I wanted the Tundra and all the quality it brings to the table.

    Final thought, its a truck, not a Prius. Don't complain that it doesn't get 30 mpg and....it never will. Thanks, Toyota for building a such a great TRUCK.
