dankwiz - You make the SR5 sound like a bad thing. Not true. If I did it all over, I'd get the SR5 and add the options that I want, not what Toyota thinks I want. Resale and trade in value depend on how you treat your vehicle. Hope this helps those still considering.dankwiz said:Ltd Owner here.
While all of the above may be true, an SR5 is still an SR5. You'll always get signficantly less for it at resale or trade time. If you plan on running it into the ground, this may be meaningless. If you plan to turn it over in 3 to 5 years, I'll get more and will have had the benfit of all of the extras over my period of ownership.
dgraves1 - From what I was told by the dealership, for the 2001s, fog light was not an option and at the two dealership that I went to, they had no Limiteds without the spoiler. From what I remember they said that all Limiteds came with spoilers. Any way, I wanted something quickly and special ordering was not an option I wanted to entertain. Even with the current options, I think I would go for the SR5 and get the fog lights. Also I like the SR5 alloy wheels to the Limited ones. I think toyota could have done a much better job with the wheels on the Limited. No spoilers and different set of wheels and I might look into the Limited.dgraves1 said:Now I'm confused.
John A - The spoiler is an option on the Limited and fog lights are an option on the SR5 (at least for 2002 MY, maybe it was different on the 2001s), so I don't really follow your reasoning.
Dankwiz - True because you paid more to start with. If you had gotten a Landcruiser, you'd get even more at resale time.
