    I bought my Tacoma 3 months ago, and I got it used, and they are a pain to get used, people really hold onto them, which isn't a bad thing, and I now understand why. Anyway, how many of you bought new and how many searched for a used one?

    If you bought used did you get almost exactly what you wanted? I originally wanted a DC Sport Long Bed 4x4 but I bought a DC Off Road Short Bed 4x4 and am very happy I got the OR, I am also glad I got the short bed, even though I had second thoughts as I was signing the paperwork.

    Anyway, just wondering how many of you forked over the money for a new one, which I wanted to do, but my wife would not allow me spend that much money.

    I got mine used :). I was looking for a long bed but found my DC TRD 6spd man. short bed with topper and loved it. I haven't been limited with the short bed yet. There is no way I could have afforded to go new.

    I am the kind of person who prefers to spend the extra money and get a new vehicle. In many ways, I see purchasing a used vehicle as purchasing someone else's problems which in general is rare but I just don't want to take any chances....

    I bought my 2010 used a month ago and I have no complaints whatsover. I mean the thing already had a 6" lift, tires, and some other things done to it. Made my plans easier...

    I searched for almost 8 months for a used one that was exactly what I wanted. The ones I found were so ridiculously priced(2-3k less than new) I didn't even consider them. I ended up buying new.

    I searched for 6 months and my spending limit was $16k, from my wife, and I found my
    2006 DC Off Road 4x4 for $16,450 and bought it, extremely happy, just stuck with that stupid blower motor squeak. I would have never been able to buy new, but my used one was and still is super clean and drives tight. :)

    Driving from MD to TX in it right now, Tacoma World is small on my phone...

    You would save 15k if you bought 2005 with more than 60k miles on it. Still a good purchase, but the savings from purchasing a slightly used Tacoma is very minimal.

    I really wanted to order one, never done that before. But I just couldn't spend the money. One day. In the end a Tacoma is a Tacoma and they are all pretty cool. Getting mine used left me money to do some mods right away, saving for tires and a bumper now.

    I bought my 2009 new. Took a little while for the dealer to find the exact truck I wanted. The used ones were going for pretty much around here and I couldn't find one I really liked and wasn't going to settle.

    I set out to get a truck like 3 months ago, I was dead set on getting an X-Runner, my friends talked me out of it though(THANK GAWD!!, no offense to any x-rrunners). Kept searching for a few weeks for a TRD Sport, didnt care if it was pre-run or 4x4, just wanted that sexy hood scoop. Finally found one, 07 pre-runner off road with less than 30k miles for 16k. That deal went bad though and Im glad it did because now I got an 05 TRD Sport 4x4 6spd with 36k miles for 20k. EXACTLY what I wanted at that moment. Now I wish I would have gotten an OR though.

    I searched for about 8 months and really liked the trucks but didnt want to spend the kind of money they go for new or used lol until i found mine, the dealership messed up on the add the placed and still honored the the price i got my 05 spd way blue dc trd offroad with 58k for $13999. I would have liked a 4x4 but alot more expensive and I couldnt seem to find a used in my area at all your right people do hold on to them and i know why now its a great truck its runs perfect and its tight. I would definilty like to buy a new one in the future with everything im looking for but for now this will hold me over lol.
