    I have 76,000 miles on my 2006 Tacoma. Any opinions as to whether I should keep driving it for years to come, or sell it and get another one?

    Thanks!

    do you want more payments?

    Are you kidding? You just broke it in. Keep it! Mod it! Make it the toy truck once it's paid off.

    or keep it if you don't want a bigger payment, with interest rates so low you could lock in really low on a home equity %

    So when do the new re-designed Tacoma's come out? And what kinds of upgrades are you talking about?

    Why did you buy a Toyota if you were going to sell it with that low of mileage???

    I also just bought a Corolla with 75,000 mi on it. There are very few other vehicles I would buy with that many.
