    New, $3,000 more for a new one & you also gotta remember the warranty is 3 years 36,000 mi. unless you buy the extended & there are all kinds of incentives on financing (unless your paying cash).

    The 07 & 08 are virtually identical. I like new cars because they are new and I am the only asshole driving it..... you never know if the guy who had it before you drove around in 2nd gear all day just before he traded it in.

    I am extremely supportive of buying used but for 3 grand I would say buy the new one. I saved about 7 grand on the 07 I bought used this year.

    New. Like everyone else said. Don't know what the previous owner did, it's only 3grand more for a vehicle no one else has messed with, and interest rates are lower for new if you finance it.

    New. 28,000 miles is a lot for a 1-year-old truck. As was said earlier, you'd only have 8,000 miles left on the standard warranty. For $3K, it's worth it to buy the newer one.

    The 2009's probably won't be out for 4 months or more so they probably won't come down much more at this point.

    New for all the reasons above. Warranty would be a concern if your making payments for awhile.

    If I had the option I would have waited for the 2009's (I really wanted Taco green and I hear they are bringing it back for 09).
