Bout to buy.. but has 100,000 miles.

02 Hunter Green Quad Cab, TRD, v6 4x4. 101,000 miles.. asking 13,500.



I like the color.. and would like to try and get them down to maybe 12,800 or so.. its right around book value on edmunds. The same mom and pop dealer has these two tacomas too

03 w/ 106,000k TRD 14,500$



and the last one thats silver.. non trd 93,000k miles 13,500$



what I'm getting at is, I know these motors/trans/TRUCK are very reliable, and I've been taking my time narrowing it down to a price range, definitely a QUAD CAB, and would love the TRD package which is in the maroon one and the hunter green one that i like. Just looking for some convincing before i take the loan out soon, 100,000 miles isnt high and are those fairly priced? Like would you buy a taco w/ 100,000k miles?


Thanks guys!

100k is nothing for the Tacoma. Make sure it has a new timing belt, and all fluids have been changed. Also, Pull a plug and see what kind are in there. Make sure they are either Denso or NGK.

they have a habit of starting to leak around 90K or so

I paid $13,000 for an 02 xcab TRD 4x4 w/103k miles, but that was a couple years ago. The prices don't seem too unreasonable. Like others stated, make sure the major maintenance has been completed. Timing belt and water pump would be the major ones.

if it were me...id go with the red one...

notice here a couple things...green one has a tweaked front bumper...its also missing front mud flaps and the rear looks like its not attached properly...these are things that happened to my truck when i started beating on it and abusing it offroad

id be more inclined to look at the red one harder first...even if it has 5K more on the clock

is the red one a v6 4x4?

Good eye on the mudflaps. I'm wondering about the $1,000 difference between the red and green one. Get a TRD Offroad if you can.

at first glance...they both "appear" to be

TRD wheels...plus stickers...gotta check for a locker though...

another plus for the red one is it has a toolbox already!

and to answer the OPs questions in the first post...

i would buy my truck again right now with the miles it has on it...(104K)
I paid $20K for my 02 4 years ago and it had 29K on the clock
I wouldnt consider the silver one, but i would take a close look at the green and red one

and by the way...its not maroon...its impulse red

Def, go with the Red one man! That was my 3rd choice after silver and white. Its descently priced and 100K miles isnt bad. Just check what everyone else has said.
