What do you guys think of the 1st generations? I've hit a career change in life and sold my FJ to my brother to cut back on the car payments. I want to get something cheaper to drive for a few years before I get something nice.
I'm looking at a 2002 Tundra Limited. It has a TRD Supercharger, headers, cat back exhaust (everything was installed from the dealer), all leather, tow package, 2wd (I don't want 4wd). Everything on it works fine and the owner supposedly has all the paperwork for the work done on it. It has 168K on it. He's asking 7500 obo.
Do you guys think it's worth the price? What would you guys offer?
The mileage doesn't worry me too much (it's a Yota) but I don't want to be doing all sorts of work on my truck every weekend. I expect to drive it for a few years and upgrade to something nicer eventually. I don't expect to tow very much, and would use it for the basic light duty truck. I can't seem to find a first gen Taco in good shape for a decent price so I'm checking this out. Is it unreasonable to expect some good years of service from the truck?
Going to look at it this weekend. Anything I should be on the lookout for?
