  • "For 2008, [Consumer Reports] rated the two-wheel-drive Titan "Worse Than Average" for predicted reliability, while the four-wheel-drive Titan rated "Much Worse Than Average." Full-size pickups aren't the most reliable bunch - certain versions of the Tundra have proved especially disappointing - but as reliability scores go, the F-150 seems to be a better all-around bet." -- Cars.com
