    My leased 2007 4 door is due to be turned in next month. 30,000 miles like new, after the recent publicity should I buy it or turn it in? Thanks,

    Hmmmm...I wouldn't...Get yourself a new one. I got my X-cab 4x4 sr5 for 19k with 35k miles and extended warranty...Which ain't worth a crap.

    Not OEM.
    A few things come to mind:

    1) Why would you lease it, then buy it? You're paying for it twice. Leasing is good if you want a new vehicle every few years.

    2) You know what you have because you've had it since new. You take another loan and buy it.

    3) Give it back and buy a new one if you have the money/ credit. Order it with the options you want. Your truck is 3 yrs old and will start depreciating after 5 years.

    IMO, I would go option 3 at this point. Good luck either way.

    I think thats a great deal for an 07 if its the double cab, 4x4. It has really low miles and if u liked it so far, why not.

    Don't pay for the same vehicle twice. New(er) one.

    Seems like you're just right on mileage. Take off all the aftermarket stuff, put back on the stock stuff, and turn it in like it you bought it.
