Toyota Motor Corporation Informative - Dont spend the extra money on the Platinum edition
Ok, the truck itself is very nice and the American competitors are a joke to say the least! I traded in my Cadillac Escalade for this truck, my lease was up and needed something to put my dead animals in from hunting. I do take some clients in it from time to time, the plushness helps.
However nice, this truck is sponsored by Vagisil!
The plastic simulated wood is lame, cold hands in the winter on the steering wheel, put in a heated leather one Toyota! Take a lesson from the Cadillac Escalade EXT, they have done it right. If it pulled more than 7000 lbs I would have gotten one of those. The Tundra Platinum was the closest I could find!
The tires are absolute garbage! It's still a damn truck, put some tires that actually have some traction on them for hell sakes! Go with Toyo's!
Once the snow came, the truck went no-where even in 4x4. The tires are complete crap!!!! I had to buy new ones with only 1000 miles on the truck.
Put in a factory bed-liner that has the same color paint, it's still a damn truck with a bed.
Suspension is very soft for around town, go off road and its to soft and you bottom out fast. Give me an option to stiffen up the shocks, I will pay the extra money.
For a few cosmetic upgrades, and some down grades in off-road performance. You are Japanese company, charm me with some cool electronics and high tech features if I am going to spend the extra cash, I will!
Don't spend the extra cash, dress up a limited with extra money you will save
