    I'm looking to buy this tocoma, is this a decent deal?
    Its a 2011 9000 miles, $28.400

    my question is whats the difference between a five speed automatic and the 4 speed automatic besides the obvious. It list a five speed trani but I only see 4 speed automatic. I do want to tow a trailer approx 2000lbs. Thanks in advance. Best regards.

    wat?
    the difference in the 4 and 5 speed autos is that the 4 speed auto is only available on the 4cyl engine and the 5 speed auto in the v6.

    seems like a good price buy i'm sure you can get them lower.

    That's no deal!
    I was quoted $27,500 for a brand new TRD sport double cab so you should be able to get a new Off Road for the same money or less than the 9000 mile truck you are looking at

    Thats strange the truck I drove today was only 4 speed automatic V6 4 liter, I'll go back and check mon.
    I'm still confused about the price as well. Whats the typical price one should pay for a 2011 access cab 4x4 TRD off road with 9k miles on it.
    Thanks again for the help...
    regards

    were you seeing 4spd auto on the paperwork or were you doing by the shifter? on the 5spd auto, there is a 4 and there is D which is 5th and OD.

    I was going by what I saw on the shifter salesman was riding along and didn't seem to know either. What you are saying makes sense.
