Hey guys, first post here. This seemed like the most appropriate place to post this. Let me know if I missed the correct section and I'll delete and repost to save the mods a headache.

I'm dead set on buying my first Tundra. I have owned 4 different Flavors of Ram 1500 and 2500 and have not been happy. I bought a 17 Rebel 4x4 brand new and it fell apart in the first year or two.

I found a 2016 5.7 CrewMax SR5 with backup cam, BSM, parking sensors, leather(maybe katskin?), leveling kit, and nice wheels. It's got 139k and he wants 23k for it. Should I talk him down or keep looking?

Here's the kicker...it has an accident reported from the previous owner. No information about the accident except "collision with another vehicle" and "airbags not deployed". Could be a fender bender, could be a money pit now. The current owner claims he has not had any issues in the 30k+ miles he has owned it. Oh and I almost forgot to mention, it's 4.5 hours away so I would need to be semi committed to make that 9 hour round trip.

Okay, update. The current owner clarified. The accident happened during his ownership. It was a fender bender where the rear passenger side of the fender was damaged.

Heres the repair

Looks like a nice truck. Averaging 35,000 miles a year is a bit but that usually means hi-way miles as it was accumulated in only four years and that is easer on the motor than a vehicle that is sitting in traffic idling in hot weather accumulating that kind of mileage over a period more years. I am not up on used truck pricing but I would not sell my 2010 with a 168,000 on it for that price but mine is not stock either.

price a tad high , for that mileage . But Tundras fetch high prices used .

That rust / frame is minimal , spray with FluidFilm and rub it in , call it a day
