Possible first time diesel owner
Hi guys. I have been doing a lot reading on this site and really looking forward to purchasing a new to me 08-up f-250. I do have a few questions that I can't seem to find a concrete answer to.
1. This will be my first diesel. I am looking at the 08 and up 6.4 because from what I can gather, those seem to have much less problems than the 6.0 out of the box and I really like the exterior/interior over the competitors.
2. As of right now, I don't have any toys to pull with a truck but look to getting some in the future. How well do these trucks do with just light duty daily driving and home depot runs? I am a pretty conservative driver (already own a sports car) but I like the idea of being able to add a little perfomance/MPG with a tuner and/or dpf delete.
3. Most of the trucks in my price range seem to have anywhere from 70,000 to 150,000 mile with most hovering around the 100k mark. Should I be concerned that the owners are just dumping their lemons as soon as the warranty is about to/has run out or should I view at as the truck has proved itself thus far and is probably ok.
Thanks in advance for the info! Matt.
