Looking for a first gen Taco that will suit my needs. My 10mpg Wrangler is not cutting it anymore. I have heard great things about the Toyota motors that come in these trucks. I have found an 01 on Craigslist that seems to be pretty well taken care of and is in awesome shape for being 11 years old.The only thing I'm slightly worried about is the 218,000 miles on the truck. It has the 2.7 4 cylinder. Now I've read of many trucks hitting this mark and going above it with absolutely no problems. Oil changes have been right on the mark at 3,000 miles with conventional and 4-5k with synthetic. Ad says the frame was replaced via their warranty campaign so that's another thing taken care of. I have an email into the seller and I'm going to try and go look at it.
My main question here is what should I look for and what should I ask to seller. I know the normal things to inspect but I was wondering if there is any special things to look at and consider when checking this truck out.
Here's a link to the ad: http://cleveland.craigslist.org/cto/3193389101.html
Thanks for the help everyone!
