    Hey everyone. Im new to the forums and I am looking to buy a slightly used Tacoma. I feel like everyone here would have the most knowledge about the truck and I want to see what you guys think about the one I am looking at. The link is

    http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.j...=&doors=&max_price=&cardist=63&standard=false

    I just want to see how you guys feel it is priced (high or fair). Also the dealer claims this is a "special edition." What makes this Tacoma special compared to another? Thanks for any advice you can give me.

    Kurtis

    It's a rugged trail which is fairly rare, that's why it's a special edition. Still seems a little high to me.

    those rugged trails look nice but i think it does have a lift and those rims are expensive i think like 1k added on

    I've got a 09 DC v6 TRD offroad with towing package, 6-disc cd, all weather mats, running lights and a couple other things coming at the end of this month and my price before Tax title and tags with all fees is right at 26,500.

    I wouldn't settle for a used for that little of a price difference. Not to mention if you're financing any of it you'll get a better rate on a new one.
