    Tacoma.

    I'm currently financing a Jetta right now but I want something bigger for more leg room (I'm 6'4"), camping, hauling misc shit around and something that's not too harsh on gas mileage so a 4 cyl 2.7 (don't laugh) should do it for me. I've heard nothing but good things about Tacomas so I'm excited for my purchase.

    I was wondering if some members here could take a look at these prices to see how hard I'd be getting screwed:

    2007 4cyl 2.7 77,419 km $15888
    2007 4cyl 2.7 105,373 km $14999
    2008 4cyl 2.7 79,054 km $16995

    Thank you, and I look forward to being a part of this community :D

    Welcome to the forum!!

    Have you used Kbb.com?

    Look up the values of each vehicle using www.kbb.com

    Then, you can also look through other sale sights www.cars.com & www.autotrader.com and see what other similar trucks are going for.

    As usual - BARGAIN & HAGGLE!! Set a price in your mind and don't be afraid to walk away. Chances are, they'll call you back anyway.

    BE PATIENT!! Sometimes if you wait....a sweeter deal could be around the corner.

    id buy the 08 simply because the abs system works much better. In my 07, I always felt like whenever the abs kicked in, it cycled the brakes on all the wheels even when only one was slipping which made the truck NOT stop well at all. My 08 was much better and stopped much quicker on the same road in the exact same conditions...
