    I've had my '07 dbcb sb 4x4 since '09. Bought it at 55000 miles and now has 89k. Well kept with only front bilsteins and fj tt rims and slightly used 265/75/16s. My dilemma is to trade in now for a newer taco or keep. I love my taco. What do you think? If there is an existing poll for this I'm sorry.

    Why sell and buy a new one if this one meets your needs. Society has a illness of needing a new vehicle because you are close to or did pay off you're current vehicle.

    This. When the 3rd gen Taco comes out, there will be people turned off by its larger size and uglier styling, at which point your 2nd gen will be worth more. :p

    I guess being very analytical i require graphs showing a well researched depreciation scale. Oh yeah tacos don't depreciate. Haha! No, but really. Is It better to stay above the line and assure resale value or risk the possibility of higher maintenance needs?

    Maintenance needs such as what exactly? Just do what the manual tells you to do at the appropriate intervals.

    Maintenance is a given, thats like me selling my 03 because its due for a timing belt. Well the down payment on a new one is more than that. If its in good shape and you take care of it like your suppose to by keeping up with regular maintenance she will last a long time. Most buy these trucks for longevity not resale.

    If you trade it on a new one your regret it when you get that inch thick payment book in the mail!.............drive what you got till it rots away.

    I was in your same boat with my 06 that had 175k or something miles. I opted to trade it in, and it had no issues. My reasoning was I have a really great paying new job, and I've never owned a brand new vehicle. Having a car note sucks, but it's not much, and I love my new truck.

    Honestly, I've owned my Taco since it was new in 2009. I've had the "3rd Gen" on the brain all year. I'm at 86k miles right now and covered till 100k miles. I'm going to keep it till 100k at least but then it's sort of up in the air.

    My whole thing is that there's nothing else on the market at the moment I think meets my needs more. Honestly, the only thing better than my tacoma would be a brand new Tacoma. And even then, it would need serious work to be as good as mine.

    I hate to say it but I'm VERY anxious to see the new Chevy Colorado and the 3rd gen Tacoma. I think the midsize truck market is about to get EXTREMELY competitive.

    If you want a shiny new truck, do it. Keeping what you have will be cheaper, shiny new truck looks nicer. Unless money is an issue, there is no wrong answer.

    Bought my 2006 new and had it for 6.5 years. Got a wild hair, and traded on 2010.


    Base SR5 4x4 to OR 6 spd. 4x4. In hindsight, should have kept the old one. Oh well, still a Tacoma!

    Why not just convert the front end to the new 2012? That would save you more truck payments. Evrrything else is the same as what you have now. Besides the radio
