    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.

    smart move & congratulations. You're gonna love it! :cheers:

    thats the exact truck I just bought at the end of May. Get a good deal? After the negotiating and the rebate my final price was $29,900 before trade in and TTL. they sold it to me for $400 below invoice plus the $500 rebate.

    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.
