Considering an excursion

Well I'm looking at buying a diesel 2003-2005 Excursion. I'm looking at a 4x4 XLT at a dealer with 77k, leather, 4x4, and an in-dash dvd player with 2 headrest monitors. The dealer is asking 22,000 for it which seems high to me just do to the fact that they most likely bought for like 10-13,000. My wife does not want to spend a whole lot of money on a suv with a lot of mileage. Does the dealers price seem fair? I know that diesels are just considered broken in at 100k but we are looking for one with under 80k miles. Is there anything that I should look at visually besides an Oasis report?

i was looking at X's before i bought my 350, thats a little high. you can get lower mileage and maybe even nicer rigs from a private owner rather than a dealer (and less bs). i looked for about 6 mos. before i found the "right" deal. its out there, good luck with it.

I bought mine for 14k almost 2 years ago and it had 82k on it. It was an ebay thing and close enough for a road trip. You can do better.

2001 excursion 4x4, 4" Magnaflow SS exhaust, AEM Brute Force intake, 05 conversion, 6k HID's, after market tail lights, and thats it for now. More to come..

I got mine for 22K with 44,000 miles on it back in February. It is a Limited and loaded with brand new tires, etc.

I found it in the southwest.

i got mine for 10k about two years ago. its an xlt all power with leather. it has about 170k on it when i got it. now its at 206k and besides the cps and a water pump, no problems at all. you will love it.
i also had an expedition like gnfnrs and he is right, there is no comparison.
good luck!

Im looking for the same exact thing and in the SE region there are a number of 70-80K mileage Xs around with prices ranging from $22,000-26,000 (diesels). Im focusing on diesels only but the V10 and 5.4 liter gasoline Xs are way cheaper. I assume your pricing a diesel that youre referring to?

Im hoping for a private sale but even some of the private individuals have some pretty optimistic prices in my opinion. Good luck.
