Not mine...Scam?

Ran across this ad. Almost seems legit, but for the price. Although you never know. I found an ad for a 2004 Tacoma with 215K miles for 2500 bucks...quad cab...4x4. Thought SCAM! So didn't call. Was talking to a guy in Human Resources one day about what happened to his 2004 Tacoma as I had seen him driving a later model one the other day. He sold his for...$2500, because it burned a quart of oil between changes. So up for your consideration this ad...NOT MINE.

Oddly it does look legit, none of the usual BS that you see in the fake ads.

I've only been in the market for a D90 a few months and I've already lost count how many different cities this 'truck' has show up in.

Case in point
