Default Best Thing About A Toyota is...

I can drive it while wearing Sorrels. We're off to Willis Case right now to walk the dogs this Christmas afternoon and wearing big snow boots doesn't work in the Saab, a known winter friendly vehicle. Hey, we can't take the dogs in the Saab either, they don't fit! There are two reasons Toyotas rock. Got any other examples?

I can drive my truck with ski boots, too. Although in fairness I would not do it beyond moving around the parking lot, getting the duck bill hooked would be a disaster!

I love how big boots fit in my Hilux, but my big dogs and big boots always fit fine in my '85 900 3 door. And I was less tolerant back then.

My Hilux is my first Toyota (tho Mom had a Corona when I was young) and this tryck is so so dang dependable. I really am a convert to the brand based on an pretty old example.

They start just fine, even when it is 0F outside

And they haul a LOT of presents to and fro...

Electric locking rear diff in my '98 4Runner. Pulled out a stuck neighbor's Honda on hard packed snow (on Christmas day), and didn't spin a tire.
