    So my tacoma got totaled the other week and I need a new car. Im really not sure what I want yet and im having a hard time finding something i really want. Im not sure if i want another tacoma. Ive been looking at BMW 330's, Acura Tl S, and a few other more sportier cars but Im just not sure on what I want.

    Anyone have any suggestions for a car? My price range is around 20k. Thanks for any help

    Don't you think you owe it to Toyota for making a great car, that in the end, saved your life? I'd get another Tacoma, or maybe a Lexus IS.

    Im open for anything really.

    As for the IS, most of them with lower miles seem to be out of my price range.

    Not OEM.
    Have you checked Off-lease vehicles? They have high dollar vehicles up to four years old, and a pretty good variety.

    I think I have decided on a 4runner. Something like an 03-06 or so. The V8 would be nice with 4x4 in white. That would be my number 1 but Im open to alot of things.

    gonna be tough finding a newer 4runner (4th gen) for around 20k. they hold their value as good if not better than tacomas. im a really big fan of 4runners. have an 04 limited 4x4 its really versatile and can still transport alot of people.

    From looking at autotrader and such Ive realized its going to be hard. Any ones that I have been looking at all have somewhere around 80k plus miles on them. I just gotta find that good deal.

    That's a sexy fucking vehicle. Looks like it needs a .50 mounted on top.
