This. When buying a used car, unless you're a mechanic yourself, having someone else who has expertise and is not emotionally invested in the sale or purchase of the vehicle to look at it is very important.Why not have a mechanic check it out for peace of mind?
Without knowing more specifics, that sounds like it's about 3 times more expensive than it's really worth. The F150 is probably the most produced vehicle in the US, so it's not rare. Did you research the value on a site like kbb.com?I am considering. This truck is beautiful, inside & out. Looks very well cared for. They lowered the price to $7K from $7500. Thoughts?
For me it would depend on what I am in the market for...
That is a good point, but hard to quantifyI would also look to see if there were trailers towed etc. This can add "mileage" if you will to a truck since they are now putting more strain on the drive train.
That would be my thought on it.

Contractors, carpenters, plumbers, roofers, HVAC, farmers, electricians, etc.No I'd buy a Ford Fiesta and rent a larger vehicle if I ever needed it.
Still trying to work out who these people are that need a giant boat like this as their daily driver.
I know some of the jobs my brother-in-law (carpenter, framing) worked at didn't have the best maintained roads in and out of the job site... so his 4x4 came in quite handy then. It's also come in handy to help pull out some roots from another space that he was trying to clear of some trees. And if you've ever drywalled, it's usually better to buy longer sheets so as to minimize seams... those 12-foot sheets probably wouldn't have made it to the site intact in a Transit... I know for sure, it's come in quite handy for a few re-modeling projects he's helped us with.Why would most of those people not buy a van like a Ford Transit though? They offer better security for what you leave in the back and are much more weatherproof.
Most vans are not rated to tow small construction equipment like a Bobcat. Those that are usually weigh more and get worst mileage than trucks. As they have the same frame and engine but more body.Why would most of those people not buy a van like a Ford Transit though?
