'96 Toyota T100
Hello, first of all I am new to this site and would greatly appreciate any help. I looked at a 1996 T100 with 45,000 miles. It was an extended Cab with 4 wheel drive, air, automatic, and also had a stock cd changer? The car lot was closed as it was Sunday so I am not sure if it was a changer or not. I am fairly sure it has a six cylinder. My question is this, what would you think the price might be, I want to stay around 15,000. and is there any issues with this truck. Thanks for any help

If you have problems with the above, Toyota will repair/replace. Warranty or not. They know they had a problem with these issues and some others. They have been great for fixing problems on vehicles, under warranty or not. I have two friends that had new motors installed on older model 4Runner and T100, 108,000 and 200,000+ miles respectively, FREE!!! And once they change a item once, it is covered for as long as you own the vehicle, but has to be done by a Toyota Dealership. I have had Toyotas for 20 years now, and you just cannot beat their service. I have owned 7.
Most of my T100 problems occurred within the first 15,000 miles and have had nary a problem since.
The 96 comes with a 3.4 litre V-6 only. Can get it with a 5-speed manual or automatic. I have the automatic. Fuel mileage is 14 city, 2 mile trips back and forth to work, 19 Hwy. Have gotten as high as 23 four times driving @ 65-70.
This is a good vehicle. Don't let anybody who does not own one, steer you away. JD Powers has had it ranked as #1, for when it was being built. Power is decent with the automatic and better with the 5-speed. It does run down the highway very well.
And I do pull a boat. You would be surprised how well it does this task. People who do not own one just do not know. They hear it has a V-6 and think automatically it is going to be a dog. I had a friend claim that very same thing, untill I took him fishing, pulling the boat, and let him drive. He said it pulled way better than his Ford F-150 302 V-8. He does not bash it anymore and is rather awestruck and how it performs.
Just go drive it!!!! You will be able to tell whether it will meet up to your standards. This is the longest I have owned a vehicle and plan to hold onto it for several more years.
Another option, if you want "more power", is Toyota offers a TRD supercharger. Most places charge around $2800.00 installed. Jumps from 190 hp stock, to 260 hp. Torque goes from 220 to 265.
Price wise at $15,000.00. Book, I do beleve, is around 16,500+. I think if the truck is in good shape, 15 is a good price.
The 3.4 did have problems with head gasket that year but Toyota will fix it free if it blows the head gasket.
I currently have the 3.4 and its a excellent engine.
You should consider the T100, just find out if the head gasket has been done on the V6(the dealer should be able to tell you). hth
