I'mlooking at buying a car or pickup truck actually. I like the Takoma. The wayit workes these days is you look it up on line. Then you get a pretty general price from a on line web site. There is no fee but then your refered to a local dealer. The sales people are all third worlders.I'm still dickering. I got it down to $21054. I figure 22 some claim 25 is good enough. i looked at the fit which is cute but don't really put on that many miles. So I want a safe viechle. I like to haul a little bit everynow and then.

That's basically true, but there isn't a more boring line of cars than those from Toyota.

If it doesn't stroke your nuts while you're driving it, it's a boring car.

I find buying a new car a emotional high. Like most emotional highs it ends in a kind or remorse. Still the new smell, the daydreams of trips. The Takoma is a big TRUCK but still gets 23 mpg and is safe crash wise. I decided to add posi traction which should get me out of most dificulities. Still I wonder if the ecconomic colapse will result in lower and lower prices. My brother the trucker says cars and trucks are pyled high and not moving. Maybe I should wait.-Rod
