Ok guys and gals. Gas is killing me (along with everyone else). I got a 2004 Tacoma 4wd Double Cab that gets 16.5-18.5. Commute to work is about 240 miles a week. Also my fire station is in a terrible part of town. Vehicles getting broken into happen often, and always seeing "day laborers" walking around them at 2 in the morning. Having something a little less attractive might be a plus. I am looking at a 1994 Geo Prizm within the next 10 days if it doesn't get sold. It is about 200 miles away and this is the earliest that both our schedules workout. Owner is 2nd owner. Bouth it in 1998 with 45k miles. The car has the 1.6L 4cyl, 5 speed, 115k miles. OCI was 3-5k at Chevy dealer. Timing belt replaced at 60k. Owner has replaced starter, alternator and door handles. All of these are common for this car. Have seen a picture, and it looks good for it's age. States that their is no front end noise that might indicate CV, etc. going bad. Owner states that the car gets 38mpg on highway. I'll be ecstatic if it only gets 35mpg. I am gonna take it to either the Chevrolet or Toyota dealership in the town when I go look. I had a 1995 Corolla and it was a good car. This car is basically a Corolla in GM clothing. Hoping to stretch another 100-150k miles out of this car. It's due for another timing belt change at 120k miles and it'll need 2 tires within 5k miles as well. Insurance is gonna be less than $120/ year. Owner is asking $2300, but kbb lists private party at $1750 and Nada at about $2500. Would be pleased to get it for $1800 if all checks out. Does anyone have any knowledge about this car or any advice?
