Tiger, in my opinion Toyota is no doubt the best vehicle on the road. The only thing for me now is the new Toyota is coming out soon and I don't want to buy a last year model.

#1165 of 1169 Toyota is releasing a new full size Tundra replacement in August.

Was just at the local Toyota dealer when making comparisons between Nissan, Ford and Toyota. They are selling new 05 Tundras at rediculous prices just to get them off the lot fast. I was quoted a no money down 48 month lease for a limited ed 4x4 at $379. A 2x4 SR5 was only $289. Why so cheap?
Toyota has artifically modified (increased) the residual value to drastically lower monthly rates. WHY? Because when the brand new Tundra hits the ground in August, no one will give the old model a second look. The new Tundra is a larger truck that is promised to be very similar in appearance to the outrageous show version and have capacity up to 1 ton. Wait to see this jewel before buying and possibly living with regret for not waiting to see the new release in less than two months time.

If you havn't noticed most of the kinks in producing a new car is having kinks. I don't remember any new car not having problems.
The brakes, fuel gauge, differential, and front windows are warrented, Nissan will extend the warranty if the problem persists. In my opinion the ford 150, is a great truck I just think that Nissan has produced a better product for todays buyers.
I use my truck for HVAC. I put about 2500 to 3000 miles monthly on it. The trucks great. The motor is bullet proof, and I bet it will outlast any American made motor, without modifications.

Toyota's new larger truck will be manufacturered in San Antonio Texas. They are looking at rolling out their first trucks around late 2007 or early 2008. It will take a couple of years to build out the facility.

okay...I've driven a 97 f150 for 125k miles and recently tested the '05 lariat and the '05 titan le...all I can ask is: WHAT THE HECK IS FORD THINKING???
They should fire the designers/engineers now if they havent' already...i love my f150 but the new one is a disaster ... ford went backwards in some areas (like putting the jack and other stuff on the floor where I store things, making the bed rails so high you need a ladder to reach anything, etc.), missed the boat on others (180 degree folding doors, cargo management, power, ride quality, etc) and got a few things right (style, interior look, exterior looks)...
Overall, I say the titan wins hands down without even starting a quality discussion...i'm afraid to buy the new f150 because of the vibration problems...I asked the ford dealer how that was going...he said it was fixed...but didn't know what the solution was!!! At least with the titan we know the brake problem is manageable...that's my view folks for what its worth.
So ford will discount themselves into oblivion...they have no other choice...and now they have let the imports take their biggest market...yup, there are die hards but even they will fall...all i say is: don't believe me, drive the titan...I was thoroughly impressed.
