Tacoma hopeful

Hey guys, I'm looking at buying a 07 Tacoma 4x4 TRD double cab sight unseen, as its many miles away from where I live. I wasn't worried about anything mechanical because it is still on warranty. The guy i'm buying it from told me to test drive one where I live because he says it has a front end vibration on the highway. He told me he took it in to the dealership and they did something but its still the same. The dealership told him that they all have this vibration and not to worry about it. I can't help but think that this is why he is selling it. The truck has 11,000 miles on it. Is this in fact normal? Maybe he is just anal? Any one have tis problem?

Thanks in advance,
Tom

Welcome... could it be unbalanced tires? Easy fix. If not, maybe a rim is out of round, or worse, something from a wreck. Carfax is worthless in many cases. Investigate to make sure. Good luck!

I have heard of front end issues, but I never had one, maybe junk tires, bad balanced tires, unless the truck was wrecked, you should be safe, those are low miles.

Hi Tom Welcome to TW! No front issues either on my 2006 w/ 20k. Not sure about buying sight unseen, I would want to drive what I am buying. Even with a warranty, its a drag going back to a dealer. Maybe something closer to you? Good Luck, keep us posted when hopeful turns into your purchase.
