I may sell the 97 Tacoma 4x4 extra cab this year. It was a rebuild when I bought it but has never given any trouble to speak of. Just wondering how much this hurts the resale value on a 97 model truck. I can't tell much difference it this area of the country. Rebuilds seem to sell about as good as trucks that haven't been wrecked. Any opinions.

Rebuild (aka Salvage) title vehicles generally decrease the value of the vehicle by 25% or so. You can still get a decent price for them, just remember to state to the buyer it is a rebuild.

yea, some people dont mind as long as it was fixed back good, and not cobbled or thrown together. as far as how much it hurt the value, i couldnt say for sure. just dont dont go out of your way to hide the fact that its been rebuilt or they could probly take legal action...

No, I don't want to trick anyone but NADA and Kelly don't seem to have values for salvage vehicles so I needed to know what to ask and how much to bargin. I figure that it will bother some and not bother others as much if they know its in good shape. I think that it hurts newer vehicles more. Or at least I hope so. Thanks.

Its a 4x4 Ext cab 2.7 four cylinder, 98,000 mi. Oem style fender flares, Cd radio with remote, aluminum tool box, bedliner, air, a few scratches on the bed not bad,interior good but not perfect, TRD Stickers but not TRD, Reese hitch, everything works. I am putting it in the trader magazine for $9195. Not in a hurry to sell it. I just tow a boat and want a newer model V6 4 door if I can find one. Love to have a new one but my heart flutters in a bad way when I look at the price tags. Oh yeh, new Michelin M/S's this winter. That was $850. Great looking and running truck. It did have a few slow starts on cold morning but that problem seems to have gone away. I will keep in in the trader several months and see what kind of offers I get and go from there.
