Recently purchased 2003 F350....Question
I recently purchased an F350 w/ 180,000 miles from a local dealer in Dickinson, TX. It seemed fine and everything I checked for was ok. I test drove it 2 different times, then bought it "as is".....
Anyway, one trip out of town (about 320 miles) and then a little around town later......I have a blown Oil Cooler and EGR Cooler. They have taken it back and will cover "the first $2500" worth of repairs.....the 2 coolers.
The dealership is trying now to get me to let them do the belt tensioner (about $500) and they tell me that two of the injectors test out a little flat. Replacement cost of about $900 ("big discount since they are already working on it"). The rest, they say, are ok.
I cannot afford repairs right now......later would be better.
**Question is: Should I push hard for them to fix the Injector issue since I had not driven it 400 miles before I had oil in the coolant bottle? Or, be happy that they are fixing anything?
It was running and starting pretty well when I had it. I am wondering if I have any rights since the truck was bought "as is"....**
Anyone with experience similar to this??
