Carmax

Carmax offered me 5 grand for my truck. A 2000 ranger XLT 4.0L auto. Its extended cab. I am worried about the engine in it though. It keeps oiling up the #4 plug and its losing coolant. Should I take it?

Kelly Blue Book has the trade in value at 4200 for Excellent condition for your truck. Sounds like a good deal to me.

That's unbelievably good for a CarMax offer...they typically give bottom tier (fair) or less for their offers. What's good is that they offer is the same whether you buy a car or not. That's pretty nice.

Having just finished looking for a truck, I can say you're definitely better off going elsewhere for the new truck...CarMax's current prices on Rangers are well above anything you'll find at a Ford dealer. Trucks are a dog right now and the deals are great. When I was shopping, there were used Rangers going for more at CarMax than what the Ford dealer was asking for new ones that were similar. The deals are even better on the Mazdas.

See what they have on the lot also make sure you get the quote printed out for your trade in so that if you go somewhere like the ford dealer maybe they will match it
