I'm picking up my Tacoma Monday because I don't get back in to Kansas City till after the dealer closes on Saturday.
Right before I left town my 02 Mitsu Diamante was acting up, and I didn't want to pay for the repairs so I decided to buy something else after I got a trade quote on my car. I found two 08 Tacoma Access Cab TRDs about 40 miles from where I live, so I put a deposit down on one and I can't wait to pick it up Monday. I've wanted a 4x4 Toyota truck since I was a little kid (I'm 28 now), and it seems like I've looked at one every time I've bought a car but I just haven't pulled the trigger. This time I'm going to get what I've been trying to ever since I got my license.
The truck I think I'm going to buy is the black one I attached. It is a 2008 4x4 TRD V6 Auto with 15,000 miles on it. I got them down to $21,500 for the truck, and they are giving a more than fair price on my trade considering the condition of my current car and that I'm not fixing it.
The silver truck is also an 08 4x4 TRD V6, but it has a manual with 11,000 miles. They want $2,000 more for that truck, but I don't really know enough about them to know if it is worth the extra $2k.
Basically I know one has a hood scoop, and a manual and the other doesn't and it is an auto. I found these while I was out of town, so I haven't been able to see them in person yet.
Thoughts? I still have until Monday to decide unless the silver truck sells.
