Why is this...

More acceptable to me as an interior than this...

Aesthetically, the Buick is more pleasing to my eye at least, and it definitely has more “soft touch like” surfaces than the Taco. I mean, they’re even both in the same price range, and the Tacoma interior is nothing to shout about. I’m just trying to figure out why I was so turned off by the Buick, but the Tacoma is perfectly fine. Is it because the Buick is touted as luxury, yet the interior materials are far from luxurious? Damn expectations!

I’m bringing the wife’s Jeep in for a couple of recalls next week, so I may try to borrow a TourX for the day and see if my previous thoughts about it still hold.
