For $12k you can get a pretty decent 100. But, the 3rd row is limited to kids and shirt legged adults.

A Sequoia might be your best bet if you're looking at spending that much.

I've seen several great deals on 100 series lately here in Denver. Last week I saw a beautiful dark green 1999 LX470 with 117k on it, timing belt done, awesome shape for around ~$11k. MPGs aren't great but nothing in the category offers superb mileage and 100s are supremely reliable and enjoyable!

I'm liking the Sequoia idea. I told the boss last night that we should just buck-up and get a loan for a nicer vehicle. I'm not talking crazy new car prices but something in the 10-12K range. That would buy a very nice Sequoia with around 100K miles. You just can't go wrong with a Yota.

Here is the biggest kicker in this whole vehicle swap...I'm going to be driving my wifes 93 Accord to work from here on out. Image me rolling onto construction job sites with this ride. F it...I'll be getting 30mpg and will drive the 40 every now and then to keep me happy.

I know how you feel, I've been driving my wife's 2009 Corolla for the past couple of months and the guys at work made fun of me for a while

But I've been driving my Tundra again starting this week and it feels so nice to be in the vehicle I enjoy again.
