    I learned that my truck runs better when clean (inside and out) and tank full.

    After owning my 2012 DC for a few weeks, I've found that if you purposely park next to F-150s, Siverados, and/or Rams, you get dirty looks from their owners. Apparently the drivers of those inferior trucks suffer from "size envy" and just HATE it when a Tundra is nearby.

    In a related story, while still at the dealership signing papers I called my insurance agent to notify her of change of vehicle (traded in my Tacoma). She told me my premium went DOWN on the Tundra. When I asked her why the Tundra was cheaper, she said, "If you get hit by another truck, you'll only get a dent, but if you hit another truck, it will be demolished".

    True story.

    Might be a true story, but is likely a misstatement. The sheet metal is pretty thin, if you get into a wreck its gonna wreak havoc on the body panels. The reason for lower rates is because the Tundra has really good crash test ratings and has traction control as a standard feature.

    On my 11 DC model w/o DRL's, if i leave the headlights on and lock the truck with a double click of the fob, when i come back and unlock it the cabin lights won't come on when I unlock it with the fob. If the head lights are turned off before I lock it though, the cabin lights come on when I unlock it.

    Didn't see this mentioned and I never even thought about this. The 3 circles on the back bumper, the center is perfect for a standard diner style/size coffee cup, and the two outer ones perfectly sit a beer bottle. For some reason I never noticed this until today when i went to set my coffee down on the bumper. Though every time i've hooked up the hitch i wondered why they were there.

    I didn't realize it until cold weather came but all you have to do is hit the key and let it go, she will keep winding on it's own until it starts. I let it go one day and it rolled over and extra turn then started, hmmm. So then I tried just hitting the key and sure enough, 3 winds later she was purring, been -20 c here in the night so takes a couple extra revolution before she starts. COOL feature.

    Sorry, the post did not copy before. Looking for the button that folds the mirrors in automatically?
