anyone else see this?

youtu.be/MAkfiVkBP_Q?t=107

"poor reliability"
"stiff ride, clumsy handling, can be loud"
"average owner satisfaction"

Im highly skeptical because if those things were true, then the resale values wouldn't hold high.

They trashed the FJ cruiser too. We all know that story. BMW driving, latte sipping, open toe shoe wearing, horn rim glasses sporting elitists ain't picking my cars.

They even trashed the Land Rover. Not a peep about a jeep...Hmmmm.

LOVING that Ginormus shift lever on the Maserati though. Where can I get one?

Did something drastically change with this year? Tacoma has always been top in reliability for trucks. Jeep Wrangler made the least reliable list as did the GC. Just read that in their rag a couple months ago.
I don't recall them trashing the FJ per se . Just for stupid shit like blind spots and such. It was given tops for reliability.

Land Rovers have always had poor reliability no shocker there.

I love my 2017 TRD PRO Tacoma. Rides like a truck, aerodynamic as a brick, and shitty gas mileage like all my FJs and the 4Runner. What's not to love? If you buy a truck and bitch about these things, you need kicked in the dick. Plain and simple.
