Ford Transit


I'm considering a 2010 Transit with 186k at auction. Advertised as a well-maintained fleet vehicle. It's pretty clean from pics, but a hike to get there (200 miles). Closed business. Would you bother?

Re: Ford Transit


Would depend of the starting price of the auction and how many bidders I thought I was going up against.

Would also depend on what they consider well maintained

NO WAY! Too many miles. You will spend more repairing it then what you pay for it. Spend more upfront and less down the road. There is a reason they are unloading it.

Re: Ford Transit


I think there ma have been a bunch coming off lease as we have several advertised around here.
Seems the price range from 6-7k.
I would never buy a gas 4 cylinder with that mileage. Never seem to hold up.

I agree!
You can't make any money if your vehicle is in the shop all the time.
And just about everything will be worn out with that many miles.
