Would you purchase a 6.0 that was part of Buy Back program?
I have been looking at a few 6.0's and am looking to buy in the very near future if I can find the right truck. I found one I was interested in at a Ford dealership, and I asked for the OASIS report. What they gave me didn't show any work that had been done, but it said there was a close CUDL on the truck. After researching, I found out this means there has been a complaint to Ford by the owner at some point. I asked the dealer for more info and told them I would like to know what the complaint was and what (if any) resolution came from it. They told me the only work they could see under warranty was on the injectors and no mention of EGR, oil cooler, or head gasket issues. They said the truck was part of the Ford good will buy back program, where Ford purchased the truck back from the original owner. They also said that the history that they have available only goes back 180 days. Is that true? I thought they would be able to see a full history, does anyone know?
The dealer says the truck has been inspected by the service shop and the coolers and head gaskets appear to be healthy. What do you all think about this scenario? Any info is greatly appreciated. The last thing I want to do is get myself into a truck and end up spending thousands in repairs within the next few months.
