    I am looking at buying a 2007 Tacoma, Access Cab V6 with 100k miles for $14,000.
    I know to check the frame for rust, but what other issues should I look out for?
    What do you think about the price and how long this vehicle could last?

    Check fluids and frame, maybe another pair of eyes with knowledge or bring it to your mechanic, but that seems like a super clean truck. 14k isn't too unreasonable for 100k miles.

    I’d give you my opinion but it would be biased. My biased opinion is, that it’s a good truck.

    I’m also bias, been driving an 08 access cab for more than a decade, it is a great truck. It seems like a good deal especially in todays market. I suggest you have a second set of eyes look it over ( mechanic). Check the VIN at the dealership for any outstanding recalls.
    Good luck!

    Seriously though,

    timing cover leaks
    Wheel bearings
    Rear axle seals
    And blower motor/resistor


    Other than that, a basic road and exterior inspection should suffice.

    Agreed that's a good price for that truck. In my state that would probably go for $15,500. I recently bought a 2007, very glad that I did.

    $14k is about Avg. If I thought I could get $14k out of mine, I’d seriously consider it.

    But then I’d have to find another truck.

    Trd off road, according to what’s on the side. Get the vin & look it up to be sure that’s what it is. If it’s wrong, someone tried to pull a fast one.

    Don’t spend too much time thinking about it, wait too long and it’ll be sold.

    Check the frame and look around.. but it looks clean from the pics. Those seats are in very good shape for a 15 year old vehicle

    Pull the oil fill cap and make sure the engine isn't sludged up.

    Also as @Waasheem said make sure it's really a TTD OffRoad, there's alot of fakes out there.

    Those seats look like the better of the 2 options, isn't that the nicer cloth? Looks like the ones that came in my 2011 Offroad

    I can’t tell you what my seats look like.
    I put seat covers on them the first week.
    I run 2 sets of seat cover. That way I still have a set on when I wash the others. I workout doors, I sweat, I HAVE to have seat covers.

    Too risky.

    2007 if you were the only owner will last you forever. Not being the first owner, you’re gambling with a vehicle that old.

    I just got a 2007 TRD Offroad, 6 cylinder, 6 speed manual, 114,000 miles, camper top, $15,000. Original owner, who is a friend, religious service at Super 6 Tokyo in Albuquerque, desert truck so no rust. Car prices are getting crazy, so I was happy with this.

    Looks nice and clean. How does the engine bay look? Have the leaf springs been replaced by Toyota? Any service records you can look at for maintenance? V6, 4.0?
    My 06 has been good to me.
