Hi, I have a question to ask some of the knowledgeable people here. I'm looking at buying a clean 98 tacoma extended cab 4 x 4 TRD V6 with 160k miles. Auto trans, Power locks, windows, abs, cruise ect. The guy is asking 8000.
The maintenance history on this truck so far is unknown. It made no sounds and drove well with the small exception of just a little play in the wheel. The belts looked alright and the undercarriage was rust and oil free.
My real questions from all this are these:
are there any certain things Known to go out around the 160k mileage in these vehicles?
Is there any thing I should check out especially well on this vehicle before proceeding with a purchase?
Any common problems to cause wheel play?
As a hopeful soon to be Tacoma owner, are there any nuggets of information anyone thinks I should have?
Does this seem like generally a good price for this vehicle?
Any response to any or all of these questions would be much appreciated
