    hello, new to forum and needing a few opinions. im looking at a 2003 prerunner 2wd crew cab, auto, v6 with the trd off road package. it is in excellent condition with new tires, battery and oil change records. It has 75,000 miles on it. he was asking 12,500 and i offered him 11,000 and he said no..we agreed on 11,500. the truck looks and drives great. i have been looking for a while and this seemed like a decent deal. im located in tn and have not found a better deal in my area in the past month......whats your opinion? to much? fair? good deal? thanks in advance.....john

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Hello titan, have you tried going to kbb.com and finding out how much It's worth from a private seller? Just type in everything like miles, options, etc. And it will give you the value.

    I don't know if It's a good deal but you can have a shop inspect it for crash damage (or you can do this), and have them check engine compression. Or do a check on carfax.com.
    75,000 miles is not the best but It's not bad for the year and It's not a lot. If it feels right for you, go for it.
    Hope that helps, if you do get it I hope it all works out for you. :thumbsup:

    Seems like a decent price and it still has fairly low miles on it.

    how long have you been looking? also have you checked a couple hrs each way of you cause if you can get a better deal even with driving it would be worth it. That is what i ended up doing
