Nissan, a company that has a history of recent senior-management infighting and corruption vs. Toyota

10 ( +14 / -4 )

Looks exactly like the Toyota

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Nissan NO thanks. Their vehicles are renowned to be unreliable and costly to repair.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

I will never buy a Nissin as its a company that has lost its way.

9 ( +11 / -2 )

I will never buy another Nissan. I hope they go under. Toyota cars are the way to go. We have a Beautiful Estima and we love it.

7 ( +12 / -5 )

What's this obsession with driving tractors?

The nice thing is they don't look worse after a collision. You can hardly tell with some of these trucks.

My wife's two Avalon's are no better. Pure misery to work on at home and any time it goes to a mechanic it costs at least a grand, usually more.

No diesel?

After the VW scandal nobody can cheat on diesel emissions any more.

Cannot beat Chevy Silverado,on style and performance

@Desert Tortoise

That's your problem for buying a Toymotor I have a Mazda and have had no issues with it for 8 years.

Is the Tacoma the American name for the Toyota Hi-Lux?

2 ( +2 / -0 )

I have a 6 year old Toyota Fortuner...never gave me a problem. Had a Nissan once and it was a huge headache.

Chevy ,solid like a rock,my brother own two Silverados,they are reliable and performance under pressure,

I like Mazda. They are indeed very fun to drive, pretty well made with great power trains but man the sheet metal is thin. My wife is just weird for Avalons so I am stuck with them. When I see them I think white hair, walkers and oxygen bottles. I am not there! I have always like Mazda 323s, Protoges and their Ford branded cousins the Laser and Escort LX (which had the same twin cam 1800 cc engine as the Miata, what a hoot).

Nope. Completely different trucks. The Tacoma replaced the Hi-Lux in the US and Canada in 1995. It was designed for the US and Canadian markets. They are manufactured in Mexico and the US. They are not sold outside of the US and Canada.

A monstrosity and disgusting polluter. People don't need huge tanks to go to the supermarket.

8 ( +10 / -2 )

Disgusting machines ruining our cities with pollution, noise, and danger. Most of the journeys made in these obscene vehicles could just as easily be made in a smaller one, or by bike. There is a real climate emergency, and these monstrosities are causing it.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

The archaic measurements.....ft ib of torque, mpg? inch? sigh. Thankfully the "Everything metric" chrome extension is there, and converts any caveman units. And it's a Ute. "trucks" are something completely different

For the Tacoma with the V6 and automatic transmission, the EPA says to expect 21 mpg​【11 L/100 km】 and 20 mpg​【12 L/100 km】, respectively.

thats it? 11-12 L/100km, that's pitiful.

Is the Tacoma the American name for the Toyota Hi-Lux?

No different chassis, Hilux made in Thailand Tacoma the US.

Hilux comes in turbo diesel, far better mpg than the Tacoma

Drove a Nissan in the past. A real POS. Constant problems and despite its size it felt very light on the highway, moving in strong winds and when trucks passed by.

Lot it Toyota love and Nissan hate here. Nissan have been good to me and my family over the years. Have a hybrid Nissan Kicks now, it's awesome. Still a lot of loyalty among Japanese people to Nissan.

As for these vehicles, terrible to drive on the open road, hard to park in the non American sized city. Niche market that just exploded and became so popular, don't get it myself. Contractors, farmers, outdoors rural livers, sure, but urban tractors?

My first car in Japan was a Mazda Miata convertible. Man I loved that car! But impossible when you are married with Children to have a 2 seater. But I will always love Mazda Miata

There were reasons for it, beyond the "dominate the road" type marketing. This is from 2006.

Congress recently passed a tax bill, as proposed in President Bush's economic stimulus plan, that offers a $100,000 tax credit for business owners who purchase any vehicle weighing 6,000 pounds or more when fully loaded.

100k in tax credit is way beyond the sweeteners people get for driving a kei car, and look how they distort the Japanese car market.

Can you name the truck with four wheel drive?,

smells like a steak and seats thirty-five..

Canyonero! Canyonero!

Well, it goes real slow with the hammer down,

It's the country-fried truck endorsed by a clown!

Canyonero! (Yah!) Canyonero!

12 yards long, 2 lanes wide,

65 tons of American Pride!

Canyonero! Canyonero!

Top of the line in utility sports,

Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts!

Canyonero! Canyonero! (Yah!)

She blinds everybody with her super high beams,

She's a squirrel squashing, deer smacking, driving machine!

Canyonero!-oh woah, Canyonero! (Yah!)

Drive Canyonero!

Woah Canyonero!

Woah!

If you live in a locale similar to that in the photo, then may be you have a need for such a fuel guzzling, pollution belching tarted up descendant of a tractor. But most are sold to idiots who live in towns and cities and the roughest terrain they are likely to hit are the pedestrians they run over!

In the right place doing the right job they have a place but not in the urban areas they are mainly sold into.

Truck off.

Oh, preach, brother!

I loved me that little miata especially with some big ol' fat tires.

One thing that it never lacked for was quickness on account that it wasn't totally overweight.

A fabulous 2 seater that had a formidable waistline.

Off the line, it would totally eat up the competition in the first quarter mile.

Good god, man. You can make the predictable Simpsons reference without having to re-print the entire song lyrics.

If you had simply written "Canyanero" and nothing else, you would have gotten the half-smirks you craved.

Its comedy 101.

There ya go!

Still dated humor, (Simpsons has been beaten to death) but you're getting the hang of it!

Stick with me, and I'll have you updated to groan material in no time.
