I have a mechanic I found on Craigslist going to take her for a test drive in a few hours. I am hoping he gives her an AMAZING or PIECE OF CRAP rating so the decision is easier.

Would you sign the papers and send the check?

First off thanks for your service !! Looks pretty good , i would be concerned with the amount of fuel filter changes ,there should have been 4or 5 fuel filter changes? maybe find out if he serviced them his self or had another shop do them?

I would try and find a better truck and stay away from that one for sure. Don't want to get yourself into a huge mess.

2010 KR - Sign The Deal

Well the responses seem to be about 2/3rds negative. I wonder if I could get more details about the engine issues from the Oasis? It seems like the isuses were fixed with less than 1k on the clock, 80k miles ago. Plenty of trips to the dealer since then but no mention of engine issues.

This was about the best deal I had seen for an 08-10' KR anywhere. If anyone has seen a decent deal on a CCLB 4x4 (2002-2010) let me know!

Thanks for all the help.

GM
