    Hey Guys! Just about to get my 06 Taco with 16k miles on it. I am buying it for 22,977. Do you think this is a good buy? Moving from a 2004 VW GLI.

    I had to do a double take on the mileage. That is super low. I think it's a great deal, especially around my neck of the woods. 4x4?

    I went from an 04 jetta to a Tacoma as well. I missed driving a truck and don't regret the switch.

    Nice truck, prices are subjective. Tacomas go for a lot around here so I'd say that's a decent deal.

    I think it is too much $$$$ even if it is 4x4. Yes low miles but still is a 2006 MY. If teh truck was bought lets say in 11/2005 the truck is 5 years old.

    I just bought a 2011 TRD Offroad DC for about 6 grand more. Tacomas hold their value like no other vehicle. It may be worth it to spend a little more and get a new one. In the Phoenix area I found 08s and 09s going for the same price that I could pick up a new one.

    Thanks for all the insight fellas. Sorry about the double post. It made me do somethin weird because it was my first post. I am NOT getting this one. I am looking at this instead. I think boonduff had a good point. How about this one?!
