2012 Toyota Tundra SR5 4.6 from North America
Reliable classic American truck
Tire sensors went back at around 50,000 miles. Cost roughly $500 to replace all 4 of them.
Air injection pumps went out last month at 67,000 miles. Toyota agreed to pay half of the cost, so it was around $1,100 out of pocket. Great of Toyota to agree to do that.
Generally speaking, the only big issue with these models is the air injection pump system, which is part of the emissions control system. The 2007-2011's (I believe) have a recall and they extended the warranty beyond the original factory warranty. If these go bad, it's an expensive fix.
Powertrain is unstoppable. Fit and finish is great - after almost 7 years of operation, the interior is still as new without discoloration or broken plastic parts. Aftermarket support is great. Toyota quality is top notch.
Tundra is one of the last conventional American trucks. It doesn't have cylinders that shut off on the highway, or an engine that turns off at stoplights. Great trucks.

A 6 year old Japanese brand truck that is labeled as "classic American". Am I missing something here?

People often think some or even all of the production of any product made here makes it an American brand. My USA neighbor often works overseas for stretches at a time on building projects It doesn’t mean he’s from Panama. Not the best example, but maybe same concept. I'd rather hear global effort than say it’s domestic.
