And come up smellin’ like a new truck.
I’ve got a 1999 Toyota Tacoma truck that I bought new (guess when). I’ve always thought of it as my “new” truck, as she still looks good, paint is shiny, & it always starts & gets me where I want to go (original battery too!).
I got a letter from Toyota USA last week indicating there may be some issues with the frames on trucks of my vintage. So off to the dealer I go, & sure enough, the frame’s got the STINKINGCRUDROT. That’s the bad (?) news.
The good news is that Toyota is buying back these trucks at 1.5x the Kelley Blue Book retail price, and all units are considered in excellent condition for this buyback.
So, here I am, with a damn near 10-year-old truck, & they’re going to give me the better part of $13k for it.
Happy crap like this doesn’t happen to me.
But y’know? I think I just might buy a new one for the $5k & change…
