Just sold my 4 cylinder Tacoma 4x4 because I wanted something different. I'm choosing between a 2006 Tacoma regular cab manual that has 92k miles with a leer topper for 9000 OR a 2001 Tacoma TRD xtra cab v6 auto with 90k miles for 8700.
The 06 is the original owner. Has the leer shell and was just service (front rear diff and tranny/transfer case). He seems like he has taken pretty good care of the truck.
The 01 is a TRD that has been in a one moderate and one minor wreck. It also had its engine replaced under warranty around 40k miles and is on its 3rd owner according to carfax. The truck has a tonneu cover, new blizzak winter tires, bed liner. It looks like it's in ok shape but I'm a little nervous about the carfax.
Some of you may think it's a no brainer and that I should go with the 06 but I'm just not sure what I want to do. I've never really looked into a carfax report and was wondering how much I should really worry about the two wrecks since the frame was replaced.
So should I get the 06, the 01, or keep looking?
EDIT: Decided to keep looking.
