What Do You Guys Think?

Found a truck online I want to go look at. It's an 03 F-250 XLT Regular Cab. 4x4. 6.0/Auto. Pics look immaculate. 48k miles. They are asking $23,995 for it. Has a few accessories already ... chrome tube steps, sun visor, bug shield, vent visors, bigger AT tires. What do you all think? I was thinking it might be a little too much $$ ... but I'm sure I could deal on it some.

sounds ok, i would try to find something with a little more room though. regular cabs are really small, unless it is something you like then i say go for it.

Yeah I agree, I would study up on the 03's. Many were plagued with head gasket, EGR, turbo, and injector problems.

Another idea for you would to become a premium member and get an oasis report. This report will tell you everything that has been done to the rig at any ford dealership nationwide. If any large repairs have been done in 48k miles i would pass on it because it will probably have more down the road. If all looks good 23 isn't too bad but maybe a little high.

If you get the oasis and need help figuring it all out just post up and we can help ya out

The price sounds pretty darn good for that low of milage. This could possibly be an indication that it may have problems though. Like the others said, get an oasis and a carfax on it. If there are no problems on the oasis and carfax then don't be afraid to buy it. It should have some of the 5 year 100K warranty left on it and you can also put an extended warranty on it just for insurance. Don't let others make your descision. Check the service, test drive, and decide.
