used truck issues

looking at buying a 2008 from a used dealer. would love to get one of these oasis reports but the dealer i talked to doesn't know anything about them.says that each dealer is independently owned and can't see what's been done at other dealers.can anyone on here do one? truck's in excellent shape but with high miles and the dpf has been removed and dealer doesn't know anything about a tuner. stay away?

Get a compression check before you do anything else... That's my 2 cents anyways.

I cant imagine any dealer other than a seriously small mom and pops type dealer not knowing what a oasis report is. I would figure that they just dont want to pay to pull it. Now the dealer that I bought my truck from flat out told me they checked the oasis and it came up blank. I requested one on here and it came up with 3 pages of info.

Any Ford dealer is able to pull an Oasis report. All you need is the VIN. I've had Oasis reports pulled on many Ford trucks on the dealership's lot as well as my own truck's every time I've had warranty work done.

Talk to any service writer and they'll be able to pull an Oasis report for you.
