Looking at a 6.7

1343 22
So there is a used 6.7 for sale at the dealer. Its a 2wd long bed quad cab with 61,537 miles. It looks pretty nice and they want 23,800 for it. Would it be a good buy? I will be trading in my 98 for it if I do.

The reason that i'm asking is that it wouldnt be a bad idea to check out the truck very well. I own a 07.5' and although i love the truck i have had alot of issues with it. This doesnt mean that you will but i would ask to see all service records on the truck.:thumbsup:

yea thats a good idea, I stepped on it today during the test drive, and the CEL came on.... I accidentally got it to like 3500rpm so that may be why but I dunno. CEL on a test drive doesnt make me to confortable...

turns out the code was from someone who tried to start the truck with the wrong key at the detail shop... could that be true?

Well I would think that if someone had tried to start the truck with the wrong key that the CEL would have come on right away when you started the truck, not during the test drive.

That does sound odd.

What kind of warranty is left on the truck or are they offering?

Salesman BS. CEL would not have come on DURING the drive if someone at some other time used the wrong key. Consider waiting until a different truck comes along, they usually do. I know it's hard when the candy is in front of you though. That's how I ended up with my 09 Big Horn :drool2:

Good points.

You are in Texas there will be another truck. ;)

Hell if you go on cars.com you can probley find a number of them just in a short search range.

yea Im passing on it, although the carfax report looks great, biggest repair being the speakers changed out. Warranty on Engine only till 100,000/5 years and exhaust 8years /80,000. After running the numbers I got too much on my plate already, so im gonna wait anyway. Stupid custody battles, lawyers are expensive!

they didnt have maintenance sheets, just the carfax report. The warranty is for the engine only and its till 5 years/100,000 miles. He thinks exhaust is 8 years/80,000 miles but I dont care about exhaust as i would do deletes anyway. I have to say I fell in love with that 6.7 after driving it. That exhaust brake is sweeeeeeeeet!
