Same car as wife?

How weird is it to own same car as wife? Mine got a sequoia last November and I love it. Iím thinking about a vehicle now for tax savings and love a v8 that can tow. Donít trust Chevy to get the Tahoe right. Ford ainít ever happening so Iím left with the sequoia.

Hers is a white limited. Iíd be going with a green trd pro. Different color, wheels, roof rack.

Also considering 4Runner but im so used to big roomy v8s......

My truck is used for a lot of hunting, fishing, etc. Kinda tired of a truck bed that is usually empty and guns, etc piled up in the back seat.

Towing would be up to a 21í Carolina skiff.

Another thing I love about the suv option is not feeling like Iím docking the USS Enterprise every time I park. My tundra is a relative school bus.

Have also considered a cap but guns and such arenít really secure and would prefer dog in conditioned air.

Not that weird.
I drove a 95 4 runner (purchased new) and my wife drove a 99 4 runner also purchased new.
I say go for it.

We purchased the same cars about 5yrs ago. A pair of Jeep Grand cherokee's.
Only real difference is mine is 4x4 and hers is not.
As long as the vehicle fulfills your needs, it works well. She loves hers.
It is nice to get in her car and feel at home

Hey if you like it why not? My wife has an E63 and I have an SL63, not the same but definitely similar.

My neighbors in the 70's drove the same cars... every 3 years or so, wife got a new caprice and he got the old one. Always white.

As long as you don't start dressing like your wife, you should be ok.

Get the best..............

Get the best, forget the rest! Go buy yourself a Supercrew Ford F150 XLT or Lariat (if you like leather, etc.). I've driven F150s for years without a problem. There's a reason that the Ford truck has been the #1 best seller in the US for the last 43 years!

Not 100% the same, but my wife has the 84' coupe and I drive the 85' wagon. Both are W123's so does this count?

In this neighborhood there've been at least 2 couples that had matching cars, 2 Jeep Wranglers and 2 minis.

At one time, this was the missus and I.
1997 miata, 1999 miata. Mine was modified and here's was stock (other than different wheels.

I have had my El Camino 6 months longer than my wife, and I can bet she is gonna want to keep her Macan. So it would be really weird for us.

Question on the original post. What do you mean "tax savings?"

Nope. Our ideas about transportation are completely different. I have a one ton van & she has an electric cross over. Can't get much different than that.

Real men drive Tundra's
Isn't the Sequoia the same platform as the Tundra?
The 5.7 is such an amazing engine I can't see getting the 4Runner with the V6.

I can't imagine living without a pickup bed attached to my daily driver. It only gets limited occasional use, but it sure is handy when I need it. I have hauled nothing but a few bucks of compost up to a $490,000 camera system. Not at the same time!

My wife just brings me along to drive my Elky when she needs a pickup bed.

I don't see a problem with it at all.

I am going to route Vash mentions in a month or so.

If I was in the market the Sequoia would be the leader in the clubhouse with the Land Cruiser.

The colors available now are really outstanding.

I do have a lockable truck bed lid on my Tundra which has made it more useful.
