    i am looking at a 2005 tacoma 4x4 double cab trd sport. it rode pretty nice when i test drove but it has 150,000 miles on it and that makes me nervous. dealer is asking $13,990 for it. is it a good deal?

    $13,900 seems high with that kind of miles.plus getting a loan(if you are)might be hard to do.

    Always check prices online first before signing anything. I have a "ask a dealer" thread set up for stuff like this. but from the little I know about your truck it is worth $11,039. HERE.

    Check previous owners. That price is steep.

    I'd say that right around 10,000 for my region, south east, would be a good price 13 is a little high.

    value is regional and scarcity affects the value. It doesn't really matter what the books say, with a vehicle of that age, if they are truly rare in your area, people might pay it.

    On the other hand, that price sounds about right for a dealer because they price high. I would take 10-15% off the dealer price as what is possible to get them down to from their original asking price. Use that figure and decide if it's worth that.

    hell no. i wouldnt but a used vehicle with that many miles regardless if its a toyota.

    toyotas last a long time when you take care of them; but who knows how well the previous owner took care of it. ill feel comfortable driving my truck when it has that many miles, but not some randoms.

    That seems pretty high to me. When I was looking for my 99', in 07'. I couldn't find anything in my area for a good price. Then I found one on E-bay from a dealer in NY State, selling for about 4k less then anyone around me. My buddies dad (retired) offered to go pick it up for $1,000 two days later truck in the driveway (in MO.) Anyway just look around a bit more you can find what you are looking for and if you have time the drive could be a good time.
