Wow, what a deal. Would this be a good first Ranger?

Ford Ranger Extended Cab 4WD LOW PRICE Great shape - $2800 (merced)

This is absolutely one of the cleanest Fords you will find on the market
It is well equipped with 4 wheel drive, Automatic, power windows and locks, tilt, cruise, CD, etc.
It also has a mild tint to the windows to keep the sun at bay.
This truck does not look 6 years old.

Whats wrong with it? 2800 is very low, usually only that price if some kind of major work is needed.

something cant be right to have an 04-05 for 2800. that truck would easily sell for 10k or more. i bet its a scam or it has some seriouldy high mileage or something.

Im not sure exactly. I think either the guy is just a idiot for selling it that low, or put the wrong price. I sent him an e-mail. But if nothing is wrong with it, or it has like 190,xxx miles, would it still be a good investment you think?

id stay away from it...it might have been in a wreck and been a write off and they fixed it...make the guy get a carfax for it and if he refuses dont go any farther...also could have some kind af mechanical trouble...might have the tchain problem

id talk to the guy, maybe go look at it if you are interested. I dont know how much you know about vehicles but usually you can tell that they have been in a wreck if you have a careful eye. But that price is not right something will be wrong with it for that price.

basically if you do go to look at it look at all of the gaps real close...if any of them are off...it means its been in a pretty bad wreck...especially if the door gaps are really wide

Alright cool. I know quite a bit about cars, mostly Hondas and such though. Never really been into trucks. I think i might go look at it. But I am gonna see if he will get a carfax first.
