If I were you make sure you take it for a test drive on the freeway between 60 and 70 mph and check for any vibration before you sign papers. They are notorius for vibrating. Hope all is well with your new truck, I regret buying mine. It's not as well built as I thought it should be. Between the suspension TSB issue the dealer is giving me a hard time about, the constant 20mph shudder, and the tough time they have balancing tires its not worth the hassle. I've been to the dealer at least four times in two months. I've never had this many problems with any of my past vehicles, especially since this truck is brand new. I don't want to discourage you, I just wish someone warned me before buying this piece of junk.

Sucks that you had such a bad experience. I have had my '08 DC LB 4X4 for 2 months now and haven't had a single issue... no vibrations, no wind noise and I'm pretty anal according to my friends so I think I would have noticed.

o.b.,
I've had my 08 taco for a week now and noticed the same shudder when i brake at about 20 mph. I drove on the highway to 90mph so far and have not noticed any vibrations. But I am really discouraged after reading all these problems. I've never had a toyota before. I always thought they were high quality vehicles with hardly any issues. I'm going to take a good look at my options on either keeping my truck or trading it in.

you're right jhodge83, these are piddly things, but the shudder at 20mph is pretty weird, because it only does it at that speed.

I traded my 02 GMC Yukon Denali for my taco. That truck never gave me any problems after having it for 6 years and putting 100,000 miles on it. Maybe Americans do build a better truck????????????

You shouldn't even consider trading your new truck in. Unless you like getting a$$ raped.

i didnt have too many probs w/ my '00 chevy xtreme, but lots of people did. my mom bought an 02-03 s-10 v6 extended cab and it blew ass...she traded it out w/i a year...so no, its not just about american building better...most "american" trucks are built in mexico....along w/ some tacoma's, fords, etc...

They gave me $12,000, for my Denali, and taco came out to $28,000. Remaining balance i paid cash. I guess it was a bad decision.

i dropped $14.5k w/o so much as even a test drive and it was the best decision i've ever made...all i had to finance was $12k which included the TLC and extended warranty. there's no way i could have got anywhere close to the truck i have now from any other maker, in size or price....

the problems yal havin are weird..i gotta admit. i jus bought my fourth tacoma. ive owned 3 98 models. 2 of them were 4 bangers and then a 3.4 l. ive NEVER had any trouble outa any of the ones i drove. and im a pretty bad offroader myself. this new one hasnt hit the dirt much yet but im breakin it in slow an steady. the biggest issue i have with the tacoma is its too lite in the rear end to yank all those other "AMERICAN" made pieces of crap outa the mud or off the trails when they break their "AMERICAN" axles. but the way you gotta look at it is theres gotta be a bad apple in every bushel. i wish i could give you some REAL advice on how to fix it but yal know how the dealerships can be. lol

Wow, I missed this comment.

Why on Earth would you want to finance instead of Paying in cash? Unless a dealer is offering a great APR (or a bank or credit union) that is much lower than you current investment vehicle financing is a last resort.

the only other time is when you need a large sum of money (emergency) for an upcoming event or circumstance.

Other than that one should always opt to pay in cash if you have the recources to do this.

Just this last weekend, i had to pull a friends 4 door silverado out of a ditch with only 2 of his wheels making contact to the ground. I put it in 4 low and barely had to tap the gas and he came right out. It didnt even feel like i was pulling a 5000 lb truck behind me. My tires didnt even spin on the grass. Everyone was impressed, they didnt think my truck would even be able to pull him out much less first try with no spin. I was very proud of my truck
