Looking at Two Excursions: Which to buy?
I have my eye on two different Excursions, a 2001 7.3 and a 2002 7.3. I don't really know much about the differences between those two model years, but I know there aren't many.
The first one is a Black (monochromatic) 2002 with 91K miles. It's being sold by a dealer for about $19,000. It's fully serviced with new brakes and two new tires. It's basically a 2 owner vehicle with a clean carfax and a good OASIS report.
The second one is a Blue Limited 2001 with 124,300 miles. It's being sold by a private party who is the second owner. This guy has had it for 1/2 of the 124K miles. He only wants $14,000 for it.
I'm torn as to which one to buy. I like the lower miles on the 2002 and the fact that it's been serviced, detailed, and checked out by Ford. However, $5000 isn't chump change.
Any recommendations as to which one I should pursue?
