resale value of high mileage 6.0

well i still havent got a powerstroke but ive come across another potential buy. its an 06 reg cab 4x4 with 200k miles. it seems to be very well maintained and the body is in good condition as well. my only concern is will i be able to sell it later down the road? i wont be a daily driver so i will put less than 5k on it a year. i plan on keeping it until im either out of college or able to get a loan to buy something newer, so lets say 3 years tops. would anyone buy it with over 200,000 miles on it?

If the guy can show you maintenence list where he's kept up with everything and changed the oil on time and prove the engine was well maintained and you go yourself and get an oasis report on the truck and if it came up pretty clean i wouldn't hesitate to buy it. should be pretty reliable...

I would say yes, mainly because it is an 06 which was a better year for the 6.0, and with the high mileage, most of the major problems would have been fixed by now. That being said, It would be good to verify whether it has had the major problems common to a 6.0 and then find out how they were fixed. What kind of head studs used, injectors, EGR, etc.

I would do a little research on the vehicle first, but I wouldn't shy away from it just because of the motor and mileage.

mudstrokin, ive tried to get oasis reports before and they tell me its personal information that they cannot give out. also, its at a dealership so i cant get maintenance records unfortunately.

rohan i was thinking along those same lines. i figured if anything was going to go wrong it would have happened by now but who knows...

Find a tech on here and PM him the Vin 3 and he'll get you an oasis. the dealer should be able to give it to you.... but yes by now any thing that could go wrong most likely has and hopefully has been repaired correctly and not ignored.... hope you can figure out what your lookin for bud and good luck w/ the truck!

No maintenance records, no buy, especially with those miles. It's not a deal if it comes apart on you.

The dealer should have that in their hand already. OASIS is simple to get.

well i got the oasis from m-chan. seems like the only problems were a pinion seal leaking at 17000 miles and at 71000 miles several tsb's were completed, two batteries and egr valve i think. sounds like a good buy to me, but im still concerned about whether i would be able to sell it down the road with like 210k miles
