    Unless you are paying cash, the difference in interst rates will probably make the new one actually cost less. And you will get LED tail lights.

    If you are looking 09+ used, just buy new. The only savings I have seen is 05-08 trucks. With new you get a lower interest rate, lower insurance, and a warranty. You also can get exactly what you want. Although I did see that truck had the OR package. That brand new is 31k by Toyota's website. Although you probably can talk them down a bit. See how low they will go on the 2012 then if its only 2k more just buy new.

    If you plan on modding the hell out of it, Get a used one man.

    Plan on keeping it stock and just driving, Get new because then you dont have to worry about voiding your warranty or anything and you can be fully covered for how ever long you own the truck.

    Personally ive never bought new and probably never will as much as i would love having a truck with 00000 miles... Its a pipe dream. I will always buy used and mod to my liking.

    Good luck and i know you will be happy either way when buying a tacoma.

    get a new one. You aren't saving that much if you buy a used one, unless you buy one with over 100k miles.

    New. Used tacos are so high, you're payments will be virtually the same. And the '12s are so sick.

    I do plan on doing quite a bit of modifications over a period of time. My plan is to have the truck until I, or it dies. Just like my last one which survived a t-bone once, and the second finally killed him. I also found this 2012,

    http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...AN&searchRadius=500&listingId=324135411&Log=0

    I forgot to mention that the brand new one here in town is listed at 31,000. I wouldn't even know how to talk those grease balls down. Its not a skill i have. I appreciate all the advice and opinions

    I just picked up a 2012 Prerunner Access cab and to bargain them down I found a similar model (new) on autotrader, I emailed them the link, and they matched the price. They ended up coming down $3600 from the MSRP listed on the truck, from $27,600 to $23,900. It really pays off to do a little bargaining. Do some research online for what you should pay, print it out and bring it with you. The worst they can say is no...
