BTW- Kelly BB is about $20k for excellent condition.

Sounds like it meets Kelly BB "excellent" condition requirement...Does Kelly BB consider all required maintenance etc. be done to be considered excellent? Can't remember...

If so offer him $20K :) - If not, offer him a little more as it appears he has done some pretty pricey maintenance that you won't have to worry about.

With the 100k service done. I'd think 22k is fair. My friends just paid $24k for '03 with 76k

Try to find out what the $3k was actually spent on. Ask if the starter has been replaced or rebuilt? if not figure at about 120k that'll need doing. $400 ish. Other thing to be weary of cracked exhaust manifold. Sounds like valves out of adjustment when cold. (click,click,clic)Only when cold does this show up. I'd ask the guy to leave it overnight and allow you to see how it starts on a cold day in the morning. New manifold is $1600 and there are no other options out there. This may be the real reason they are selling it. Why else would you spend $3k on a rig and sell it within a year? Check that the Nav works, that's another big expense if it needs repair.

Wow - seems like it was just a year ago I looked at an 03 with around 60-70k miles, and they were asking $30k. Depreciation is steep on SUV's these days....

LOL! You guys crack me up. It would be for the :Princess:, but she is pretty happy driving her 3/4 ton crew cab diesel. She is super frugal and does not want to spend any money.

I am pretty shocked at how fast they depreciate.

Sure it's a $25 part to rebuild the starter. But as I've mentioned before the starter is under the intake manifold. In the middle of the V. I paid Slee $265 last time for starter rebuild, but estimate $400 if you're not in the know.
I paid $20,500 for my 100 with 90k on it. best truck I've ever owned. I'd buy another one for sure. That 2010 4runner has my attention though. So does a 200 series. And a double cab Tacoma. and a JK,(but don't tell anyone in the club, I don't want to be banished) I got a weak spot for the Honda element, too. and that Scion that looks like a box, and a bassboat purple sparkle VW dune buggy. and a Ural

Bruce has some great points for you to check out. In this economy, I'd follow Tim's suggestion and low ball it first.

"If you don't know 'em you can't really humuliate 'em...too bad anyway." Then just wait a few days and if he still refuses your offer, then bring it up if necessary. Not many private buyers in the $20K vehicle market these days. Lots of buyers in the $3-$5K vehicles though. Patience will pay hugh dividends in this buy. Just don't pay too much....they're more out there that'll be available.
