Hey I'm new to the forum and have been spending a lot of time on here before joining today looking at issues and mods for the EXTs. I've looked at several EXTs between the years of 2008 - 2010 and am interested in one specifically around my area however it has 134,000km and the seats / carpet is a bit worn out. There is no DVD system, non-powered running boards, paint is in decent shape no visible major damage, tan (cashmere) interior. It is a US truck from Arizona and the CarProof / CarFax is not clean. It looks like there was a minor accident in Arizona and then another minor accident in Canada after the truck was imported.
The dealer is throwing in a Lubrico 2yr powertrain warranty and they have a 30 day return warranty. The previous owner had amps and subs in the truck so there is a control knob on the dash, they added dual exhaust tips and tinted the front windows.
There is 2009 EXT that I'm going to see on the weekend with 144,000km @ $29000, it has the DVD package and black interior.
What do you guys think? Is it worth it to get the 2008 or should I run away and fast?

Being from the US spooks some people it if it's had an accident too I'd stay away. Truck might be fine but you will have a very hard time selling it when that time comes. You should be able to find better for $24-28k. A friend of mine is selling his on van island it's a 08 for $28k. Look on autotrader it should be on there...then again, I'm not sure where you are. Also, if you're in eastern can, think about buying west coast...the rust issues will be much less.
