    I was just thinking of checking out some newer Tacomas. I have an 06 with 115,000. When do you guys think the resale value peaks and then starts to drop off? At what milage would I get the best trade in value?

    with an 06 with that many miles i think uve already passed it... i would say when ur truck has less than 12k miles per year it increases resale value

    Best trade in value was at 0 miles and just before you signed the papers... :rolleyes:

    The 98 I traded in on my 06 had 98,000 miles on it. Value would have dropped by 50% if it went over 100K.... :eek:

    Yeah. Definitely lost a LOT of value when you passed the 100k mark my friend.

    I second these guys, a 100K+ vehicle is always slightly more difficult to sell. But then again there are tacos cruising around with over 200k.

    I traded in an '06 this month with 22,300 on it .... well over KBB .... I was quite pleased because I was going to go private sale, knew what KBB was but then they offered me $$$ ... saved the hassle.

    I know that we aren't in the same ballpark but I thought that I would share.

    I would say your best resale will be with less than 1k miles.

    On a side note I purchased an 02 Tacoma in 2003 for $18k with 18k miles. Traded that vehicle in 2007 with 75k miles to the dealership for $13k. The dealership sold the truck the next day for $15.5k.

    Agree. Most people in the market are not looking for vehicle with high mileage unless it is a significant price drop or has tons of add-ons and extras. Although your Taco will last forever, not many people look over a 100k when buying a vehicle.

    For trade-in, you might get a little more just because they want your business.

    I agree. Most people will look at how long the truck has been on the road vs the mileage. 12K is average for a low mileage usage. Although mileage is not the only thing, is the first think they will look at.

    i think you are asking about when would be the best monetary time to trade in to get the most bang for your buck. i would say at your point never. drive it until the wheels fall off repair it and drive it some more.

    Yup, after hitting 100k you lost too much value simply because it has hit that dreaded "100k". You'll get the most now by driving it another 100k or 2.

    All in all, the answer to your question would be probably between 50k - 70k. At that point you would have gotten a good use and there is still some foreseeable value/use for someone else. Longevity of hitting that 100k mark plays a big factor in it too; 25k/year does not bode well for a buyer.
