Trueish except this 4 time Toyota owner has no interest in having another over priced gas pig. Grandpas Suburban had 280,000 miles on it when we sold it for far more than scrap value. It only ever got brakes, plugs and fluids.The LC and LX might get driven around as urban soccer mom rigs (at least during their first ownership period) but they are sure as hell much more durable and longer lasting than the GM and Ford SUV's which engage in soccer mom duty. That's why Toyota SUV's sell so well on the used market, despite being gas pigs.
My dads pile of junk 1999 Explorer has 240,000 miles on it and is now being driven by a teen family member. Its only had brake pads, spark plugs and fluids.
I have actually never owned any of my Toyotas beyond 180,000 and 20yrs of age because all of them had expensive stuff to fix. On a cost to own and longevity the domestics in my family have handily out performed my Toyotas. Especially in cost to own and need for major maintenance.
My 06 Sequoia has been the best Toyota yet but it still is beat on service costs.
So after 25yrs of Toyotas and paying for them this Toyota guy has no interest in anything Toyota has today. My next wagon will probably be a domestic something. And the bonus will be if I buy new I won’t have a dealer sales staff tell me “we don’t negotiate our prices” lol. Yeah our Yota dealers are that bad. Lol
