Default why tacomas no depreciate, why not

make depreciation into tacomas?

my dad has a 1998 Tacoma SR5, ext cab, 4wd, 5spd v6

right now about 170-175 thousand miles on it.

still worth $10,000. why? he's NEVER had even so much as a hiccup from it, and i doubt that thats just a fluke.

Didn't you watch Top Gear?

Tacomas are super hard to destroy. Super hard.

That's high quality for you.

Are you complaining that they depreciate too much, or not enough??

Just like all Toyota's they are probably the best engineered vehicles on the planet, which is why they hold their value. I just don't get why your posts above make it sound like that is a bad thing.

So, which trucks are better? Ford or Toyota? Ford, IMO, makes the best truck.

As you can tell, I don't know that much about Toyota trucks, except for the Top Gear episode. Hey, at least I'm honest!

A wagon wouldn't work out for you? Like a Legacy wagon - I would think if ya got some kind of racks installed (assuming the food is in those catering trays) there it would work out great (and it would be inside the car if you are worried about rain and such).

Can't touch ford when it comes to full size pick-ups. But Toyota is the best when it comes to compact, mid-size pick-ups.
