I bought before 5 years a used 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan for $2000, Blue book price was $5000. I got a deal because it had a high mileage (157,000). After 5 years the mileage is over 200000. I had no problems with the engine or the transmission. All of you know that the quality of the F-150 is much better than the Dodge Grand Caravan. Most owners of the new F150 (2005 and after) had very few problems with them. The frame and the suspension system of the late models is much better than the new Tundra. The new 2009 style of the F-150 is more civilized and modern than the Tundra. I am not talking now about Chevy trucks or other Ford cars. I am talking about the F-150! I am convinced after reading a large number of articles, that the F-150 is the best refined truck available. With proper care, I expect F-150 trucks to serve over 200,000 miles with very few problems.
I didn't give up the Tundra yet. I will wait for the Tundra 2009 model or 2010 to see whether Toyota address the problems with bouncing and frame weaknesses or not. However, I think the 2009 F-150 will beat the 2009 Tundra unless Toyota make a dramatic face lift.
I am not really concerned about too much power as long as I have over 320 horses under the hood. I am concerned about longevity, performance, features, durability, style, etc.

I agree with you completly. I will be looking very close at the new f150 and unless toyota steps up to the plate, I may make a change.
