    Hey all,

    New here and I currently do not own a Tacoma but I am looking into purchasing one and have been for the last 3 months but 1st gens are hard to come by in a price range that I can justify (baby on the way).

    I have a line on a 2004 2.7l 4x4 for $6000... Truck is in good cosmetic condition unsure about mechanical but I'm looking to go check it out... It's a 5spd with just over 300k on it.

    Wondering whether the $6000 asking price is fair or not?

    Anything in specific I should like for when checking it out aside from frame and exhaust manifold?

    Thanks in advance,
    Brett

    These aren't in Ontario but maybe they'll help for a comparison, but in all honestly that doesn't seem like a bad price if it is an AC.

    Trucks for comparison:

    Correct if I'm wrong but aren't Ontario vehicles usually cheaper because of salt.

    Hope this helps.
    Cheers,

    Just for clarification, I am in Canada and therefore am talking kilometers and not miles...

    300,000 km is a lot. These trucks are tough but If i were you i would get a really in depth inspection done. Especially if it's a local truck in Ontario, pretty sure all that salt can really do a fair bit of damage.

    Figure out what kinda shape it's in and then decide on price.

    Start your bargaining low my friend. Lol.
