    Hello, my name is Rob. I currently live in San Diego and drive a 2006 Nissan Titan 4WD w/ 42k miles. The Titan is paid off and i really wanna switch over to a Tacoma. I am in the DC Metro area for work for the next month and i noticed there are a lot of used 4WD Tacomas for sale out here. I found a nice a one with all the options i want and it only has 60k miles. From what i hear, rust is something to watch for out here. Anything else i should i should be on the lookout for? I am looking for the truck to make it with no major issues for at least 5-6 more years.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Unless the truck was parked right next to the beach it's entire life, rust will likely not be an issue being from Southern California.

    I think he is looking in DC...just had my '08 on a lift yesterday and it looked pretty decent for being from Chicago. There was only a small amount of rust on the udercarriage.
