2001 F250 under consideration
My name is Bill and I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to everyone on the forum. I'm sold on making the move to diesel and on the verge of buying an automatic 2001 Ford F250 7.3L 4x2 from one of my company's dealerships in Texas. The truck ran well when it was first brought into the dealership with 236K miles on it about 10 days ago, but my contact there told me they were going to put new batteries into it this evening as they couldn't get it started last night. Does this raise any red flags for anyone here? Should I be concerned about it being an automatic and not a stick? The only other obvious thing here is a good dent in the front bumper, however we ran a Carfax report and it has a clean bill of health, no accidents, etc. I'm also wondering if I should be making a trip out there to check it out, though I think they can wholesale it to another dealership here where I'm located. Would it be considered foolish to buy a vehicle
Thanks in advance for any advice or recommendations.
