    I test drove a dc 4x4 v6 auto the other day and was surprised at the amount of engine noise. Is this common? The only way that I can describe it is alot of clicking and clacking while cruising along at 2k rpm.... Just curious, I have never driven one with the v6. I am now waiting on them to get a mt in so I can drive it and decide which one to buy. Also the sales manager said they were selling them at sticker price because no more tacomas will be made until after july 1st...Has anyone else heard this?

    Sounds like you are getting the runaround. The engine makes a little noise, but shouldn't be too noticeable. Get pre-approved from a credit union or bank, like having cash in hand. They will deal with you a little better then. Note this, they don't come off the price of a Tacoma very much. They pretty much sell themselves. Never pay sticker.

    I kind of thought that the noise was normal, but I figured it wouldnt hurt to ask. Also, I have bought two new reg cabs from the same guy in the past 3-4 years and he has always taken at least $1000 of the sticker without me even asking.

    The V6 is a little on the noisy side. Some of the V6‘s have a very distinct ticking sound, Toyota has deemed this normal. There have been numerous threads on how to help reduce the ticking, none seem to help much. Also, there is no engine compartment insulation of any kind and it seems to amplify an already noisy engine.

    Great advise. I'm shopping around now too. Was looking for a used Taco with a manual tranny and TRD off-road package in sliver or white which ended up being impossible to find. So I've opted to buy a new 2010. Headed to a dealership to check them out and talk to sales.

    Great info. Can you explain the 7 miles thing?

    edit: why 7?

    Referral fee's are common. Usually only $50, better than nothing.

    Hi Timmer, this unusual above 20 mileages in the new trucks got me wondering too. How come some of them have this much miles? I know some trucks will be driven by potential buyers but selling a truck with 140 miles on it and calling it "NEW"?? Come on now.

    So is that the accepted norm? Anything above 20 miles is very much well, used?
