    Well, I had a '16 Limited CM for less than 4 months and fell out of love (defect leather, replaced abd they made it look worst, mis-aligned dash trim and per dealer it can't be fixed, dash light not working as it should be - design flaw ....but most of all it is TOO MUCH of a truck for me (not money wise though). I use the truck to take to kids to school, go to work, go to lunch with them, then pick them up for school and daycare - I drive about 350 miles a week just local. Some days I felt it beats me up....

    So, I traded it in for a new '17 Lexus NX FSport AWD. Lots smaller but more refined. We still have the '15 GX for family hauling duty. I lost $465 in the trade after 4 months ownership...not too bad.

    so here it is.

    Well sucks that you got rid of the truck so soon but glad you stayed in the Toyota family knowing reliability is better than the others

    If I have bought the new tacoma then I may have kept it since I loved my 2012 taco.

    I loose the benefits of the massive interior of the tundra but I gain trunk space,

    I missed the powerful V8 but I got the low end torque of the turbo 4 bangers

    I missed the 38 gallons tanks but I gained the 25 mpg daily...

    I definitely missed the ability to run over pot holes and the high seating position.

    One thing I don't miss is the suck-ass headlights. I now no longer wish I have the all led headlights like the GX.

    One has to do what is best overall. We all get that.

    Glad you got a high end vehicle though! Love my IS350. Puts a grin on my face every time I drive it.

    This one is 45822, almost fully loaded except triple LED headlights and dynamic cruise control.

    I care too much about little details like fit and finish so many things on the Tundra bug me. 4Runner Pro is as rare as LFA here.

    ...but you still have the Inferno, right? I wanted the RX FSPORT for her so I'll take the GX. We looked at 3 RX, went home and she said "I don't like any, you can buy whatever you want but keep it longer than few months"

    I like the look of the NX better , also I want to try the turbo for the first time.
