    Folks, the two Tundras I'm getting serious about: 2015 TRD, 53K miles ($34K) and a 2014 Limited with 85K miles ($30K).

    I haven't driven the 2015 yet, but the maintenance record is very clean. And...it's a Flexfuel...does that matter?

    Is there a significant difference in ride quality between these two? What else should I consider when selecting one over the other?

    Thanks again for all the replies to my other posts. This Tundra newbie appreciates the info!

    4k more for a newer ,lower mileage truck is what sticks out the most in my book. Less amenities than the limited , but a better deal in my eyes!

    Id also go with the lower mile truck. There are several key differences in the trims, but some of that can depend on if the limited has any other packages like the sport or OR package. Also the TRD, is that a TRD Pro or a truck with the OR package?

    Assuming you are referring to an SR5 with a TRD package and not a TRD Pro.
    Limited will have leather, dual zone climate control, some have a sunroof, and a couple more other options (maybe BSM and parking assist) the TRD SR5 doesn't have.
    I wouldn't think the ride would be that different, may a little better with the TRD and the upgraded shocks.

    Some don't care for FlexFuel, some don't care one way or the other.
    I wouldn't run E85 fuel in it, but that's just me.
    Toyota recommends oil changes every 5K miles for FlexFuel, every 10k miles for non-FlexFuel

    Agree with the others, I'd go with the newer truck with less mileage..
    Although the color of the vehicle, condition of the tires (tread depth and wear patterns), overall look/condition of the vehicle (inside and out) would be factors for me.

    I have a 2014 SR5.
    I've added/modded just about everything I wanted that it didn't come with.

    Thank you, appreciate the reply. And yes, it must be an SR w/ TRD package.
