    Hello i Garret and i am new to the forum. seems like a great community here and i want to be a part of it.

    Well first off im 17 and going to be buying my first car/truck here preferably before summer and am really interested in a tacoma. i work PT so i dont have to much money to spend but i was looking at this Tacoma and it seems pretty good to me what are your guys opinions on it? And do you think it would be a good first car/truck? I contacted them to see if a can check out VIN and the motor size. so i will get back to you guys when i get contacted.

    just for reference, I got my 01 4x4 v6 with 146,000 miles in mint condition in september '08 for $8,000. If that truck is as clean as they say, I think its a good deal.

    Also if i were to get it now i would have to finance it and was wondering since this will be my first loan can you make it so the loan includes tax and license? or would i need to pay the cash and licence cash? I need a truck for my job in the summer.

    I can't get to the link but usually, if you buy from a dealer, you can get the license fees and taxes included in the loan. From an individual it all depends on the bank, usually not.

    Personally, I wouldn't mind the 4 cyl if it was a manual. Since this is an auto, I think it would be an absolute DOG. Just test drive it though and see what you think.

    My old 01 trd ex cab 4x4 just sold at the lot I traded it in at for $13,500. It had 61,000 miles on it. It was very clean though. Around here 4 wheel drive adds about $1000 over a 2 wd. It doesn't sound like the truck you are looking at is priced too bad.
