Should i stay away?

Hows it goin guys. Im just lookin for some insight. So Ive had my eye on a 2011 f250 king ranch (build date 3/10) for a while. But in the oasis report i see some work thats been done to the trans. so now i'm not as anxious to jump on this deal. Ive been reading through the trans problem threads and some say the solenoid replacement works and some say it doesnt. Am i just being paranoid? Also maybe someone can answer this....I have seen numerous used 2011 f250's for sale including the one im lookin at and they all have around 70k on them is this just a coincidence or am i missing something? Ive attached the oasis for reference.

I would think there is alot of 70k mile trucks for sale cause the factory powertrain warrenty runs out well really at 60. As far as trans go test drive it and see dont let the tranny temp come up get in a d drive that seems to be when most act up. Also with that build date it is probally a job 1 truck those seemed to have the most problems. But dont get me wrong there are alot of trucks out there with zero issues.

You need to spend time reading thru the various forums about '11 thru early '12 trucks.

The '11s and early '12s are having a lot of trans problems - job 1 trucks. Only peeps I've seen reporting problems who report it's been fixed are those who have fought the hard fight and gotten Ford to replace the whole trans.

Personally I wouldn't touch one of these job 1 trucks with a 10' pole. My job 2 '12 has enough issues.

Knowing what I know now, I would recommend that you should pass on it.
