    I just hit 60k on my truck, and about 200 miles prior to that my poor 2016 TRD OR Toyota found her leaking oil from the Timing pan during her regular oil change service. They gave me a rental for a week ans replaced all of her gaskets and seals (an additional day off work for a trip back because the mechanics FORGOT to plug the AC compressor back in ). So here's my question, Toyota told me this was about a 5 grand job and I've heard terrible things about the 2016 models as far as the taco vibration and shudder (mine has experienced some of these issues) and the cruise control engine revving.... So here's my question... Should I buy the extended warranty for this truck? What are experiences you guys have had?

    Dont know about tacos but on the ram forum people are having serious questions about extended warranty. A lot of the extended warranties basically make it mandatory that all parts including filters are OEM and replaced at specified intervals. Basically any reason at all that they can pull out if their hat is good to void the warranty.

    Go with the Toyota Care warranty if you’re still able. Look at the fine print to make sure it’s a right fit for you.

    I drove a 96 Honda for 12 years and I'm pretty sure it was the only 100 percent OEM Honda left in Central Florida when I sold her OEM is not an issue

    The only issue is not using OEM stuff, at least as far as they're concerned. The aftermarket warranty people will look for any reason they can to void the warranty.
