    New to the community... thought it might be cool to try and find my Tacoma from within. :)

    WTB: 2001-04 Toyota Tacoma
    • Double Cab
    • 6 Cylinder
    • 4x4
    • Low Miles (0-70K)
    • Excelent Condition
    • No Mods
    • No Rust
    • Prefer to find one within Texas or surrounding states

    I'm already financed, know the market value of these trucks and am ready to buy.... up to $18,000 budget give or take.

    Tips or direct leads would be greatly appreciated!

    I know... I'd found the perfect truck but it sold before I could sell mine and get all my financing in order. Now it's long gone and I'm searching like a madman with no wheels.

    Searched autotrader extensively... as well as ebay, motortrend, edmunds, kijiji, and craigslist.

    My budget is FLEXIBLE BTW. ;)

    With unlimited miles in the autotrader settings, there's two.... one is an Xtracab with 149K miles and the other is a Doublecab with 105K asking $15K.

    I'm willing to wait and pay top dollar for a 70Kish or less miles Doublecab. I want to be driving this truck 10 years from now. ;)

    Ok, I see where we're off in our settings... DEALERS. I want to buy from a private seller (should have noted that in my original post). We have a LOT of "dealers" around Texas that specialize in buying auction cars/truck and selling them to illegal immigrants who don't have credit or credentials. Welcome to Texas. These trucks/car aren't worth the trouble of negotiating, asking questions & expecting honest answers, etc... These dealers don't have to be honest because their typical clientele doesn't care.

    I am keeping an eye out by searching specific legitimate Toyota dealers and large name dealers in Houston, Austin, & Dallas.

    I know... needle in a haystack. I'm sharing a car with my wife until I find one... or go crazy trying. :D

    Are you seriously going to spend $18,000 on a truck that is almost 9-12 years old? I can't even imagine making $400/month payments on a vehicle that old, Tacoma or not. Most banks won't touch that vehicle and even with excellent credit you're probably at 9%. You're honestly better off financing a new one with warranty at 3% for 72 months and no worries about repairs. :crazy:

    I just gave the Toyota Dealership $500 to finalize my offer on a Magnetic Gray 2012 Double Cab 4x4 V6 w/TRD Off-Road Package, Tow Package, Daytime Running Lights, & Tint. My payment won't be much more than had I stuck with my original plan. It's due to reach port in 7-10 days.

    So.... my search has ended. :D

    I'd have been all over this truck a week ago! I can't believe you haven't sold it yet. If I was rich, I'd buy it and the 2nd gen I just finalized numbers on.

    Thanks anyway for hitting me up.... if my new 2nd Gen deal falls through for any reason, you'll be hearing from me.

    I paid $30,100 after rebates before TTL. I guess I paid $200 more than you... still feel like I got a good deal. :D

    Did you get an Automatic or Manual Tranny? Mine's Automatic.... I wanted the Manual but it wasn't available. Plus, according to Toyota, the Auto gets beter gas milage.

    Yea thats a good deal, i really wanted to manual as well! I bought my truck on the last day of the month so they said it would have only saved me about $400 and it would have taken them a few days to find. Plus that had the color i really wanted right there. I love my truck, I already have 2,500 miles on mine. You're gonna be really happy and they are great at off-roading.

    Don't get the factory all weather floor mats, they will charge you $200 i believe. I'll sell you mine for $50 plus shipping

    The price the dealership and I agreed on originally didn't include mats as I plan on getting Husky Liners from Cabella's. However, they called yesterday and said the truck was coming in with mats and that they weren't going to charge me any extra. So, I'll already have a set to get me by until my Husky liners come in. Thank you anyway for the offer!

    I'm scheduled to pick it up from the dealership tomorrow evening... anything else you think I should know before I head up there?

    dont let them screw with you on the interest rate. I would probably get a loan from your local bank and see if they can beat the terms. Also, dont buy the extended warranty from them, you have up until the facotry warranty runs out to purchase a toyota warranty. I got one last year on my old tacoma for 6yr/100,000 with no deductible platinum coverage for $650 from Acton Toyota in MA.
