I'm looking for a low mileage Toyota Tacoma for my son.  His car was totaled last week and needs to be replaced.  All I can find are high mileage, high priced trucks.  I would prefer a 4 cyl. and don't need a 4X4. If I don't find something decent in a couple of days, I'll buy a new one but would prefer to get a gently used one.

i think you're better off buying a brand new one. used taco's are basically the same price as a brand new one :smt010

I looked for a used Tacoma myself but rapidly went to a Tundra instead (for the towing cap).  I went to a LOT of dealers & decided to look used on the free market.  Dealers are all asking sky high prices for used Tacomas as they claim the auction prices they pay have gone up due to high demand.  Almost every dealer I went to was $5k or MORE over blue book of higher grade condition than the actual truck was ... with "no wiggle room on price".  If you do find a good deal, jump fast on it!

I bought my 2013 Tacoma in December and paid 21k out-the-door.  It's a 4 cyl manual transmission with a camper shell and got 21k miles on it

I worked for toyota before I became a nurse and tacoma's hold their value. Like many have said new may be the way to go. If you do buy used you may want to look at private sellers. It was rare that a used tacoma would sit on a dealers lot for more than a week. I believe there is someone on NCKA that still works for Toyota. What year are you looking for? When I got my 2006 in 2010 it only had 35K miles on it. It was a rare find.

Yep, he's fine.   Thanks for asking.  I think we're going  to buy a new one.  Like everybody said;  there's virtually no difference in price.  The Costco price is invoice minus $250.  I don't think there's a better deal out there.  Now I just need to find the right one.

You'll rip your hair out looking for a good used one.  It took me forever to get my 99 forerunner, and I could only afford a salvaged one.  P.s. best truck I ever owned!  Good luck on your purchase, im jealous of your boy!

Got my 1995 toy pickup from an elderly customer in 2010 for $2800.  They drove it locally and only had 36k when I got it.  Sweet :smt007
It now has a total of 64k .  Not bad for a 20 yr old toyota pickup. 
I have an ex co-worker that have the end of 1995 Tacoma model that has maybe 40k on it.  Been bugging her to sell to me but no luck yet.
My point is they are out there.  I will keep an eye out on my route for you Martin.
