What should I do? Tacoma TRD sport

I'm not sure I want to start the new year with car payments. I would like some advice from you guys. So my truck have been paid off for almost a year now. Its a DCSB Trd sport prerunner with 59k miles in almost excellent condition. The truck I want to look at is a 2011 DCSB TRD sport 4x4 with about 95k miles. That's a lot of miles for a 2011. It has a 1 owner clean carfax. There's a few thing I lose and gain from this.

IMHO. i would. but than agin i don’t know some go with out 4x4. i could and would never own a 2wd truck or suv.

thats one reason why it took me like 3 or 4 months to find my truck. i found a bunch of pre runners. but i had to have 4x4.

Its just my opinion, but too many miles unless you know the original owner. I learned that dealers can make any used car look great. What if some dick wad horse beat it for a year or two and racked up 95K? I know its a Taco, but be careful.

Not for $5500 less than I paid for a new 2012 OR. 98,000 miles is a long haul for someone to mistreat a vehicle.

Price a new one with the options you want, and factor in any difference in interest rates. Tacomas hold their value so well that buying a used, late model truck rarely makes sense to me.

I wouldn't touch that other truck. Talk to a dealership about a trade in - you'll lose less money and get your pick of the lot.

I wouldn't pay that for a 2011 4x4 with 98k miles on it. I found an 07 sport and I am paying 13500 for it and it has 116k miles on it.

You would be surprised what a locker can do off road.

Save your money. Keep searching or purchase a set of studded tires or Blizzaks for better traction.

No way!

Surely you can get a 4x4 with low mileage for around the same price as the one you're looking at. Do you have to have the TRD package? I would ditch it to save money before I bought one with higher mileage.
