Is not a family truck and not meant for vacation
Pretty Good Truck
I owned a 2008 Tudra CrewMax. It was a "pretty good" truck. It was the first "Foreign" car I had ever owned. Initially it was all I wanted in a truck and more. After living with it for 21 months, the flaws started to appear. While looking tough, you start to realize that the sheetmetal is thin and the paint is really fragile, but I understand this is pretty much a standard across the auto industry since they have to use water based paints now. The tailgate always felt like it was too light weight. I was afraid to sit on it as the owner groups on the internet all have picture and tell horror stories about the tailgate splitting along the seams. By all reports Toyota fixed this, but it still felt a little flimsy to me. I definitely would be scared to death to use ramps to drive a 4 wheeler or something up in the back. And the "bed wiggle and bounce" going down an even remotely rough road was not what I would have expected from a truck of this amount of $$$. It made it look like the frame wa really "flexible" back there. I had to have the radio replaced three times before they could get one that would not quit working. Like I said, it was a "pretty good" truck and while I would not rule out buying aother one in the future if my needs required a pick-up truck, I would seriously consider a Ford too.
LOVE THIS TRUCK
This truck fits all of our family needs. My daughter and I use it to pull the horse trailer to the state parks for trail rides and it pulls with ease. The largest thing I have needed to but in the bed of the truck is a hay roll and it fits perfectly. My husband borrows it when he has workers that need rides to job sites. Our oldest child is in college and we would not travel in anything else. The back seat is so roomy and comfy the kids can have their pillows, blankets, games and even a cooler all fit without being cramped at all. We sit so high up that I no longer have the problem of vehicles riding close on my back bumper :) and most cars seem to move over when they see me coming. The only con I can even think of is that I tend to park toward the back of parking lots to avoid others denting my truck getting in and out of their cars because my truck fully utilizes my whole parking space. But the large size on the road makes me feel safe with my children.
