Long story short, I have been trying to sell my current 2012 VW GLI so I can buy a Tacoma. Need a truck for work.
Sadly, private sales have been unsuccessful (damn flakers) which leads me to dealer trade in for the time being.
I have been looking at 2013 DCSB Tacoma SR5's but saw this today.
2013 DCSB Sr5(Local Canadian truck).
6 speed manual only in shortbox DC.
2007 DCSB Offroad (From USA).
100,000 KM (60,000 miles)
1 accident ($5,000) bumper/1 headlight
Flawless looking outside.
No rust on frame.
Truck is from USA (I am Canadian).
I have always loved the OR Tacoma's but up here in Canada you can only get an Off-Road in an access cab and I need a double cab.
Another annoying thing is I would prefer an Automatic transmission, but all Shortbox Tacoma's in Canada are 6speed manual's. I love a standard tranny, but was unimpressed when I test drove a 6 speed Tacoma; and the horror stories worry me.
This offroad DCSB is an automatic, which is insanely rare up here (obviously).
Should I even consider a 6 year old vehicle with 60,000 miles for $6000 less? I am sure I could haggle them a few thousand off because the truck is an import, with highish mileage and a decent sized accident.
I hate the thought of giving up a 2012 with 4 years of warranty and 7000km for a 2007 with zero warranty and 100,000km.
The price for the 2007 would be a straight trade for my 2012 VW, while a new 2013 Taco will set me back $10,000 (taxes + PDI ect).
