New or Used

Iím going back and forth on this. I looking to get an f250 but can not decide if I want to get new or get a used truck. I have been reading up on both the new and used ones on this site and donít see too much of a differences. This will be a work truck and at times a daily driver. I have to park in a parking garage at work and do like the folding mirrors option on the 08. I have also been reading up on the ULSD fuel on the new trucks. As far as I know it will work in the older trucks with no problems. What do you all think. Go all out on a new truck or get a used truck.

Just trying to get options from people who currently have an f250. Thanks in advance.

im not ever buying a new car/truck again.. mainly because as soon as your drive it off the lot it drops in value big time... i bought my truck used with 20k miles on it and it was less than a year old... i let someone else take the initial hit of buying the truck... def buy used..if you want the new style im sure in a few months their will be some used ones on the lot with better deals

Can you get that 0% interest rate from Ford? It makes a big difference.

I have only bought one new vehicle, a 2002 Ranger, and the only reason I bought it new was the 0 loan interest. It ended up being cheaper than a one year old truck.

I believe all of the 6.0's can run on ULSD, not sure about the 7.3's. My 06 F350 has been flawless.

Im not sure if ford if doing the 0% right now. If they do bring it back them I think I would go with a new truck.
