I'm new to the diesel thing so I have what I hope is simple question. I've dealt with the Chevy Avalanche for several years and got great help form that forum, so I hope the same is true of this one.
I'm looking at a 2005 F250 crew cab, 4x4, longbed Lariat with 96000. miles. It "looks" like it was well taken care of, (barring any carfax issues). I looked it up on New Cars, Used Cars, Blue Book Prices & Car Values - Official Kelley Blue Book Site
and retail was $26k, private sale was $21-23 with trade in at $18k. The used car dealer has it for $19,999.
I'm going to go look at it later today, the dealer told me it still has the balance of the 100k mile powertrain from the factory.
What kind of issues can/should i expect from a 5 yr 100k mile diesel?
Is there some kind of "major" service I should take into concideration of doing?
ANy insight on this would be greatly appreciated, Thanks
