Is $8,000 too much for a 1988 4Runner with 80k miles?

Asked by Nov 02, 2013 at 11:08 PM about the 1988 Toyota 4Runner 2 Dr SR5 V6

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm looking at a '88 4x4 automatic 4runner with 80k miles.  It's in excellent condition with no rust and new tires, and the seller is going to put new brake pads and fix a small oil leak and fix a couple dings in the window.  Asking $8,000 firm.  I love the truck and want to go for it but I don't want to pay too much.

If it is loved...records complete...and you LOVE it...you've got NO choice, then...aina? I paid TOO much for me MINI cooper, but it is an amazing vehicle...and am not going to think about anything else until it's completely paid for...was very surprised to find a NEW car smell...does yours have a NEW car vibe to it?~

Run a carfax or other vehicle history report. See how many owners it's had. Keep in mind that the 2014s are out so this vehicle is 26 years old! I bet it has a 5 digit odometer. Look for mileage discrepancies on the history report. Reports that go back prior to 1994 are spotty before '94. So if it was involved in an accident back in say 1990 it might not show up. Same is true with ownership history. If the original owner had it just long enough to pay for it, usually 5 years, that might not show up either. My '86 C- 10 pick up's carfax, which I bought new in May of 1986, does not show the accident I had with it on October 31, 1986. It also does not show when I traded it in either. That was March of 1989. But as The Judge said if you love it, have to have it, and it has a clean vehicle history report go for it. Good luck! HTH. -Jim
