    In my quest to find a new truck, I found a 2009 Tacoma 4WD at a local Toyota dealer. The price is with in $100 or so dollars of the same model 2010. How much less should the 2009 be? Or should it? Do I go with the Kelly Blue book?

    The one thing that cracked me up was the charge for filling the tires nitrogen.

    Thanx,

    OT a little...They had that nitrogen crap on mine (I did NOT pay for it, but I did get eth cool green caps..lol), When I got home I checked all the tire pressures and they were all different ranging from 1-6 lbs.

    I found it funny reading the virtues of the nitrogen tire fill on the ads at the the dealer. I thought about writing under the ad that nitrogen is about 78% of the air that we breathe..but I don't think anyone thinking about buying the stuff would get it.

    I had nitrogen fill in my tires as well, although I didn't have to pay for it. I figured it was a gimmick, yada yada, thank you very much....

    Now I'm not so sure... 8 months after buying the truck I've lost less than .5lb of pressure (and that could just be from measuring at different ambient temperatures). I always use the same gauge to measure and I do it myself so maybe there's something to this nitrogen thing. Maybe I just got 4 awesome wheels and tires... wheels maybe, but the tires are Dunflops.
