    Hello, Im Joe. I have been reading post and looking for a Tacoma for a while now.

    I finally pulled the trigger and found one I liked. Christmas Present to me.

    2009 TRD Sport, Red

    Crazy, but I bought it over the internet. I fly out of VPS on Thursday to Bedford NH to the Lexus dealer to check it and and drive it home(1450 miles) Should know a lot about her by the end of the trip.

    If anyone lives around there and knows that vehicle and has any information on it...I would like to know before. It only has 43000 miles, so hopefully it is "as advertised."

    Anyway, I look forward to the ownership and all that this forum has to offer.

    Thanks everyone.
    Remind me to find one "A LOT CLOSER" next time. That drive from NH to FL was longer than I thought it would be. Anyway the truck ran great all the way home. MPG's were only around 17. I have two main issues, Rust/Seat belts. There is more rust than the salesman revealed(used car salesman are better liars than lawyers). The rear seat belt buckles are missing, which I plan on having the salesman pay for new ones.

    Let the mods begin.
