I am offering my 2002 Toyota Tacoma SR5 / TRD Xtra-Cab for sale here. This will be the most honest FOR-SALE Ad that you will ever see!
Basically, I am 100% guilty of not taking care of this truck the way that I should have. I admit it.
At 44,000 miles +/- I had to have the engine completely rebuilt due to engine sludge build up. That cost me $5k at the time. Ever since then the engine has seen nothing but Mobil 1 full synthetic motor oil. I have done many of the oil changes since then myself, at around 5K each +/-.
TRD / SR5 package
Fairly new tires with great tread left on them.
Power steering, windows, and door locks.
Manual 5-speed transmission.
Rubber floor mats.
A/C - theoretically.
I am the original owner and bought it new off the showroom floor in October 2002!
Engine runs strong.
Transmission runs strong, and shifts smooth.
Gear oil on both front and rear differentials changed last year - 5k miles ago (don't use this truck much any more).
Clutch is still good for now, but is original.
Still gets pretty good gas mileage, at around 14 miles per gallon.
Old inspection, will not pass inspection in current condition due to check engine light staying on.
Bad O2 sensor (front I think).
Broken leaf spring on driver's side.
Windshield wipers squeak - makes me nuts.
Clutch pedal squeaks, but clutch still works fine. Getting a little spongy.
The A/C has not worked in a few years, but was told the system just needs to be recharged.
Front end damage. Hit a tree while baiting my deer stand circa 2006 ---- never fixed.
Rust starting on some parts of body, but nothing deep.
Corrosion on aluminum rims.
Regular dings and dents that would be expected on an 11-year-old truck that has been well used.
Truck is filthy. I have not had the time to get it cleaned or detailed in a long time.
Again, I am all about the honesty. I invite as many questions as possible. I will also admit that I am not much of a car / truck guru so I may not know all the terms and names for all of the parts etc....in any case, I will take photos of whatever you may want to see.
The best way to reach me is via email firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to call me, but please email or PM me here for my number.
I would like to get $5000.00 for this truck, but I am open to offers. I was told the bluebook value of this truck in this condition was in the upper $6000.00 range, but I think that is too high.
I am easy to work with and don't want any hassles. If my asking price is too high then please tell me. I don't use this truck very much any more and would like to see it go to someone who will use it and have fun with it.
Thanks for looking.
