I've been driving chevies (chevys?) for years now, but mainly because of the discount I get through my father. Now that his discount doesn't seem to save me as much as it once did I'm thinking about switching things up. I've heard and read good and bad things about both trucks, but they seem to want to compare the diesel version of the colorado vs the tacoma which doesn't seem quite right as the diesel version is simply out of my price range and of course a diesel version is going to have more power and get better gas mileage. That seems like a no-brainer, but as I said it's not a possibility for me plus it's not practical for my needs. I'm looking for something that's going to be a daily driver, maybe haul some lumber and plywood for my woodworking projects from time to time, but as far as hauling goes that's about it outside of maybe when my wife and I move to a house or we buy something large that needs picked up. What I'd like to know is which is going to last me for years and years to come. I know about chevy's shortcomings in later years through experience. I've heard and read about toyota being known for having vehicle's last for hundreds of thousands of miles, but have no personal experience with them. Also I don't know what the deal is with chevy, but when I went to a dealership and got prices it was looking like i could only get the 4 cylinder version in my price, but somehow it's looking like I can get a 6 cylinder tacoma in my price range. I plan on leasing either one I get so it'll be a new truck. I would much prefer the 6 cylinder version of either truck, but i'd like some help in this decision. My price is $350 at the absolute max with 0 down payment for those wondering.
