    Hey guys new to the forum here and hopefully a tacoma owner sometime soon.. I was wondering if you guys could help me out? I'm looking at a pre-own 2008 TRD double cab model. The truck has 44,000 miles on the odometer and looks in fantastic shape. The price listed on the tacoma is $22,933, do you guys think that is a fair price? Also if you could tell me or link me to a buyer's guide in what to look for when buying a used tacoma


    Thanks

    Seems like a good price. These Tacomas hold there value. Run a car fax on it. And you may be able to talk them down a couple grand.

    Seems good depends on area I see some people getting tacos for much less then I paid and way more then I paid. Mine was 40999 miles for 21900. In Utah I felt it was a great deal. Crawl underneath and check the undercarriage for any hidden dammage too

    Seems fair but make sure you offer way lower and work up. Just play the game....Good luck.

    Thank you guys for the words of advices. Yea I figured I would low offer and see what he says. Hopefully he'll make a lower counter offer than the original price 23,000. I would like to get it for 20,000 and make my payments low and manageable. Man I've wanted a Toyota pickup for so long I hope this deal goes through.
