    Spend a few buck and get a carfax. Ensure title is clean.

    Sold my truck Jan '13... Still hang around.
    Also, the one that you linked said it was still a factory warranty. It's a 2005, so it must be an extended warranty. I'd make sure that thing is transferable. That looks like a decent price to me, but I'm not in the market.

    +1 for getting a Carfax. Well worth the money.

    EDIT: I just did a quick AutoTrader search w/in 25 miles of me (35216) and it looks like the truck you found is pretty well priced. Definitely take it for a drive.

    I bought my 05 DC TRD-OR with 24K miles on it for $17K. I spent the money on a Carfax and took it with the seller to a local Toyota Dealership. Paid them $100 to do a full inspection on it before I bought it. $100 for piece o mind goes a long way....

    Saw a story on the news. Carfax doesn't always have everything in their database. And the president of carfax said they were negotiating to get all the info. But it was true they sometimes do not have all the info. The report mentioned another company that had it all. I can't remember if it was autocheck or who it was.

    15k seems very high. The loan value on my 05 DC is 12k. Check with edmunds.com

    I would check with your credit Union & see how much they would loan on it. I would pay more than that, or you will be upside down.
