Selling the 2019 Tacoma
« on: May 22, 2024, 02:18:10 PM »
I haven't hunted in 2 seasons and I'm selling it to Carmax for $33K, and getting a Chevy Equinox. They're paying the sales tax on the new car, too. So it's almost $36K, which isn't bad for a truck I've driven for 5 years and bought for $41K. Going to miss it but for the kind of hunting I'll ever be doing from now on, the crossover will fill the bill. Fuel efficiency is almost double and I'll get $13K back besides. Nice to have a little buffer in the bank until rates start falling.

Right now its still a sellers market.
Especially for pickups.
Tried to buy a pickup last year and gave up.
Dealers were thinking us stupid for what they were asking for them.
We looked for 2 door small pickups but it seems they dont make them anymore.
Wound up buying a Mazda cx 30 for her and I found a 92 F 250 for me.
Crossovers seem to be the new station wagons now.

Please get a Rav4 instead of the Chevy. Equinox ranks like 23rd out of 26 in reliability.

I just traded in my 2007 duramax over the weekend and got $19k plus the $1,900 in sales tax deduction for a truck I drove for 17 years.

At some point you just need to say now is the time and get your used car gone while the prices are high. The news ones will never be as cheap as they used to be but the used ones will start losing their value like they used to probably sooner than later.

I too have an 07 duramax with 137xxx miles...don't understand why I should trade that in for something new and close to 80k+k  ?

On a trade in you dont have to pay sales tax on the value of your trade. So for example if you pay $40,000 for a rig and they give you $33,000 for a trade in. You only pay sales tax on the $7000 difference. Or at 8.6% tax rate that would be about $522.00.

To get $3000 in sales tax paid, if my math is right you would have to pay about $65,000 for the Equinox.

If it’s still working for what you use it for then don’t.  I was just like you for years but have decided it was time.  Maintenance costs are going up and when you start to review how much you are putting into an older truck with a rusty undercarriage and other issues that 17 years of hard usage gives a truck eventually you have to replace it.

The new $60-$90k versions of the Duramax far out perform the 07 Duramax. I never thought I would say it but it is the truth when you look into them. If I get 15-20 years out of this truck it will put me at retirement and I will only need to buy 1 more truck in my life. When it’s your time you will know.

Wife’s 2012 Equinox is a bit over 100000 miles. I’ve kept up on all recommended periodic maintenance over the years. A few sets of tires and a few batteries replaced but the old Chevy has been 100% reliable. She’s getting ready to head back to the Big Sky State in a few weeks for a HS girlfriend rendezvous and as history supports, I have no doubt the Equinox will once again, do well on the trip. Not sure if you cats got lemons or what, but, I’d buy another in a heartbeat if the old one finally gives up the ghost.

I test drove one last year and ended up buying the traverse instead. The only real bad thing I heard about the equinox is in the diesel versions. In my opinion they don’t get driven hard enough to have a diesel engine.

Mentioned it before, but not sure why I'd want a smaller suv type (SUBARU, Rav 4, crv, etc) when I can get a Maverick. Better seating, much faster, great gas milage snd considerably less expensive.  Way more versatile -try getting a 4x8 piece of plywood, or that new chest of drawers in your little suv let alone a gas can or dead deer.  41000 miles on ours, wife loves driving and have hauled stuff (including 3 grandkids in the back seat) that we could never have done with our previous subaru or crv. Just my opinion

Thanks for all of the advice. I'll take a look at the Rav4.

Rav is a great small vehicle. CRV is also. Haven’t had an equinox but we’ve had an Acadia. Designed to fail, constricted oil passages, worst lemon ever.

I am really sorry to hear you have not been able to hunt the last couple years.  :sry:
Part of me keeps my pickup just to justify me continue hunting,  :chuckle:
It sucks getting older at times.

If it concerns you, the new Chevy's do not have Apple Air Play or Android Auto. They all have Chevy's on sucky entertainment system, and they charge a subscription fee to use it and On Star.
Not everyone cares about that, but it would be a deal breaker for me.

I had the 3.5 and hated it. Lots of gear hunting, at higher altitudes it couldn't stay in 6th at freeway speeds. Add a headwind up high and it wouldn't stay in 5th even. I had a '17 and it came low on transmission fluid from the factory. Techstream doesn't accurately measure it, need to manually do it and it's a sealed unit - dealership job. I was in Colorado when I had mine, so maybe your results down low are different. It annoyed me so much that I got rid of it after a few months and got a 4Runner, which was worlds better!

Equinox is spoken with disdain in some circles. Mostly circles of mechanics gathered around one.

I really only need my big diesel truck for hunting but sometimes it's nice to have the hauling potential for projects or whatever comes up.

I have purchased 2 chevy’s in the last 6 months and they both have Apple Car Play and you don’t have to pay for On Star for the Chevy app to work. You get 3 years of the Chevrolet app for free with purchase of the vehicle.

I ended up getting a 2017 RAV4 with 50k miles. Having it checked out at the mechanic tomorrow. Extended warranty and Carmax gives 90 days for the basic warranty. Hate giving up the Tacoma but appreciate the mileage already. Thanks for all the input.

Congrats you will be happy you stuck with Toyota. Also, Carmax is a real stickler when it comes to reconditioning used cars. You should have many years of great use from that Rav4.

There is still plenty of a gap and the Rav4 is made in Kentucky.

I’ve never used Carmax but it sounds like a good service. My wife will be due for a new vehicle soon. Might have to give Carmax a try…

I'm spending the $175 +T to have the car gone over completely. CarMax also gives a 90-day/4K miles warranty bumper to bumper. As far as quality is concerned, the reviews on the equinox were about 50/50. The reviews on the Rav4 were about 80/10. Then, there's the resale value, which hands-down go to Toyota. This Rav4 was made in Canada.

I haven't hunted in 2 seasons and I'm selling it to Carmax for $33K, and getting a Chevy Equinox. They're paying the sales tax on the new car, too. So it's almost $36K, which isn't bad for a truck I've driven for 5 years and bought for $41K. Going to miss it but for the kind of hunting I'll ever be doing from now on, the crossover will fill the bill. Fuel efficiency is almost double and I'll get $13K back besides. Nice to have a little buffer in the bank until rates start falling.

I am really sorry to hear you have not been able to hunt the last couple years.  :sry:
Part of me keeps my pickup just to justify me continue hunting,  :chuckle:
It sucks getting older at times.

If it concerns you, the new Chevy's do not have Apple Air Play or Android Auto. They all have Chevy's on sucky entertainment system, and they charge a subscription fee to use it and On Star.
Not everyone cares about that, but it would be a deal breaker for me.

I have purchased 2 chevy’s in the last 6 months and they both have Apple Car Play and you don’t have to pay for On Star for the Chevy app to work. You get 3 years of the Chevrolet app for free with purchase of the vehicle.

Apparently Chevy is phasing Carplay and Android Auto out.
Here is one article.

So, after the post-purchase inspection, the shop, which does work for CARMAX, came back with $1300 in repairs, much of which should've been caught before sale - headlights and plate lights out, disgusting air and cabin filters, not very cool air, streaking wiper blades, differentials need changing. Took it back and they're going to do all the repairs because I have 10 days to send it back and let them know I'd use it. They give me a loaner while it's in the shop next week. I'm happy with the car and the sales process, and would actually recommend them. But take it to a mechanic, as with any used car purchase.
