I just wanted to get your opinions on these trucks some of the pros and cons of them over the competition.
My 2011 Subaru Forester is getting up there in mileage and I’m thinking about trading it in on a new vehicle. I currently have 104,000 on the Subaru and it runs fine for the time being but over the course of its life it’s had the valve covers resealed 5 times and the shortblock was replaced at 92,000 miles. It’s out of warranty and I’m not sure I trust it not to start leaking or burning oil again.
Before the subaru I had a 2002 Toyota Tundra. I loved having the truck but it was just getting old so I decided to keep the forester instead of the truck when my mom went to trade the forester in. The tundra got 10 mpg which wasn’t great while I was in school. That was the only real complaint I had about the truck.
That said the only 2 vehicles I’m interested in currently are the 2014-18 Silverado/Sierras and the 2016-18 Toyota Tacomas. I’m leaning towards buying new so I can get the longest warranty possible. I like the tech features that the GM trucks have like Apple Car Play and most come with remote start. It all comes down to if I can get a good deal on a GM truck. I saw over Memorial Day the LT extended cabs were going for between 35 and 36k. I’m assuming they will have another sale for the 4th of July. I’m not in any hurry I just don’t want a 2019.
