    Im a newbie and have been looking to get a Tacoma for a while. I had been looking at some used trucks (02-04) and found in my area that the prices were around 17-18k for low mileage trucks (~50k)

    I found a new one at the dealer that they are selling for 24.4k (MSRP of 28.5k)
    Its an 08 Tacoma Access Cab 4WD with:
    -V6
    -TRD Rugged Trail Package
    -6-disc in dash CD
    -exhaust tip (VAlor)
    -towing package

    I figure that for just a few thousand more, I might as well buy new.

    Any thoughts. Thanks in advance.

    Not much. Toyota bed mat, Toyota step bars, tinted windows, Toyota seat covers, Toyota all-weather mats, quart of Wild Turkey in the glove box, KelTec PT3AT in the center console, backseat full of old speeding tickets
    You figured right...go for it! Thats a fair price

    That is a pretty good deal. I looked around when mine was bought back and didn't see any that low.

    I know of a KILLER 06 A-Cab for sale up here in Illinois.
    ***(It was my 06 that I just traded for a 08 D-Cab)*** ;)

    I can give all the numbers, then go in there and beat em up on price.

    06 TRD 4x4 Access Cab, Auto, 4.0 V6, Radiant Red with 26,5xx miles.They gave me $22,000 as the trade-in value. So go offer to buy it for $500 over invoice.

    That truck is PERFECT (well, there are two small rocks chips) - I miss my Red Taco!

    Lemme know if you need any additional info - Good Luck!
