Another truck
« on: June 30, 2019, 06:47:03 PM »
Been looking around for another truck since I got rid of my 1998 dodge.
I need a smaller one that I can fit in my garage along with the wifes car.
Dodge Dakota w/ extended cab
Ford Ranger    w/ same
Chevy S 10      w/same
GMC Sonoma   w/same
Nissan Frontier  w/same

If Y'All happen to come across one of these in good shape and fairly low mileage let me know.

Glad to 308.  What is low mileage and what's a rough budget?

Same here. How far you willing to travel to look at possible prospects too? Where you located?

I once traveled from SATX  to Manchester NH to purchase an 03 F150 Lightning with 36k on it

It was lower price and way lower miles than anything local.
Garaged in winter so 100%rust free also.

Found online and process started online. Sent dwn pymnt and completed pwk in person.
Flew to NH and Drove back to TX.

With all the online car purchase options available now dont be afraid to look at that option.

I'am in the Tomball area and will travel maybe 150 miles to check out a vehicle.
As far as miles go 60,000 or less and a price range of around 14,000.

in the last six years I've bought two used vehicles by using Cars.com. Enter make, model, price range, mileage and distance your willing to travel and it provides a list with photos and the contact info for dealers and private parties willing to sell.

Toyota Tacoma is a good truck, everyone that I know that drives one can’t say enough good things about them. Most have owned the same truck for 20+ years
"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

I found out a two-car garage, ain't a two car garage! The wife had a 2003 Cavalier when we had the house built, and I had a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 regular cab, short bed truck. Her car barely fit in the garage, and mine you couldn't even close the garage door because it suck out!

Ditto. Our current garage has 2” extra for my Chevy 4 Silverado. Can’t leave the hitch on.

Well I got my shed and have started to move stuff into it so as soon as I am done
I 'am going to start to check out some dealers on my list for another truck.
Might be a week or so with all this heat to work around.

Well after hitting a few dealers I came home with a 2015 Nissan Frontier SV King cab.
After all the other ones we drove the wife also said "I like this one also " .
It is silver with all black interior and a bunch of Tech goodies.
It has the inline 4 cyl  5 speed auto and only 27886 miles on it. :th_thicon_idea:
Oh and it now fits in my garage.
I don't know how to post pics so it will be a bit to get the wife to do it.

Also the Carfax report made good to go.

That's great. Nothing like finding a new ride that has all the options you were looking for.
I've stepped up my game looking for a new to me Corvette. With the new mid engine vette out the market for previously owned has been on the rise. Usually I can find maybe three or four vette's that meet my particulars when I search but this morning I found 12 that caught my eye and the prices are slowly dropping. Going to wait a few months and see how things pan out.

Plus 1 on the Tacoma. Great truck, after 10 years, mine had 160k with no problems. ( Just bought a new one). Just change the oil regularly and put gas in it. It will run forever.
the  Downside is that used ones often cost more than the competition :icon_wink:
