You're gonna have to send that black thing up here.
I'll have my mechanic take a look at it.

I'm headed a few states south in an our or so. I found a 2004 Tacoma that looks to be worth the trip out of the salt belt. That's the last year of the little Tacoma which to me is the "right" size.. Hopefully it's worth the trip.

I'm 120 miles into the drive to the Toyota dealership in Maryland and they just called to say that someone is there trying to buy it from another salesperson. I talked to the listing salesman last night at 9 PM. He was home so couldn't take any kind of deposit. I told him I would pay his asking price by early afternoon today and would give him my CC# or paypal a deposit at 9 am. He told me to call at 9AM today so I could. Now I'm sitting at a McDonalds for their wifi as I wait to hear if I drove this far for nothing. Let's see if Darcars Toyota of Frederick Maryland does the right thing.

Update- "Salesman" Robert Hartley called me back after 35 minutes to say it got sold. Can anyone say "typical used car salesman'? If you ever want to get boned you should give him a call at 301-305-7242. That's Darcar Toyota of Frederick, Maryland. 250 mile round trip for nothing.

That sucks on the truck, and why i never really drive long distances for vehicles because when i find the one i want its always sold just before i get there.
At the ford dealer once had them try to get me in a bid war with someone else on a used truck, i walked away and found a better truck cheaper and haven't stepped foot in the place since.

Yabbut I'll betcha that Mr. Hartley told you to come on down anyway and look at all the other great deals they have on the lot!

Bummer, man.

This is only the second time out of many that I got the short end. The other was worse when I flew to Florida and found the car had been pulled out of a swamp, then cleaned up.- I'm not kidding. Like you, it ended up for the best as I took a few days off and found a better deal than what I flew down for. There have been many terrific deals including my Ural in my sig line.
What's too bad is the salesman was a douche. As I said, I agreed to his price and did my best to put down a deposit. I will continue to buy out of state. I can't afford new and the NY salt eats things up. My 12 year old Tundra has had more than it's share of salt related issues. I saw plenty of smaller Tacomas in mint shape when we were out west this past spring. I'll probably end up riding the FJR out west to find one next spring, then load the bike into whatever I find there.

I never did find one with less than 120k on it. I just couldnt bring myself to buy a 9 year old truck with that many miles on it for that much money. They are very good trucks and 120k is relatively low on a 3.4 taco. My dad drives an 02 taco ext cab v6 auto with 280k miles on it(company truck). He averages about 21mpg with it.

I really wanted an 04 double cab, but they are the holy grail around here, most are around 20k if they are in great shape.

I looked for 2 years before I found one. I mean, I found plenty of 'em, but they were either grossly overpriced or beat to shit or had a heavy smoker for an owner or something.

Then this showed up on Craigslist one day



With right at 100k miles. I talked the guy down to 10 - like it sits; new tires, topper, bedliner, fresh water pump/timing belt and pristine inside. The V6 is getting an honest 20 in mostly city driving. PO said he never took it offroad - just put those tires on it for snow - and it looks it. It could use shocks, but that's gonna get to wait 'till next Summer.

So there are some good deals to be found on the older Tacos...just gotta keep your ear to the ground.
