vehicle milage a little high?

OK. forgive me but i have a question that does not pretain to birds, cats, or marks. And for give me again when i say the qeution revovles around a toyota.

A friend i know just came over to my apartment and said there is a 2004 toyota
(4x4, 6 cyl, extended cab) far sale 4 hours away from were we are they are asking like 10,000$ it has 130,000 miles and its only 4 years old!

isnt that a little expensive? I thought so but my roomate w/ his "abundant" knowledge on cars (he HATES america vehicles) said that was normal and wasnt high. I think thier nuts. my t-bird is a 96 and only has 125,000

Not high at all. It's only 4 years old, and it's a Toyota. They retain their value very well. Most imports like Honda and Toyota do. If it's in great condition and decently loaded it's easily worth $13k. Your car is 12 years old and all of America (except the few on here) could care less about an MN12. A 96 Honda Accord with 125k miles is worth almost double what your car is.

Well, the lowest mileage car I ever bought had 158K

Both my Bird and my Vic are above 160K

To me, maintenance and careful driving is much more important than mileage.

throw up doesnt begin to justify my disgust. What the [email protected] is the world comming to. I can think of serveral American made vehicles i know off that have ran well into 200 and 300 thousand range, no joke. And with minimal probelms

Blah it's too much.And I don't know about in Iowa but here on the east coast there is a Frame recall on those trucks.Toyota actually buys them back for top dollar because alittle rust on the frame and they crumble and break.Cats go bad and cost well over $1k.Ebrake pivots suck and they chop tires.Terrible fuel mileage.

I say run away with a sticker of $10k.Maybe a $6-8k truck with the way the market is.
