Looking to buy.. Need honest opinion of 07

Hello all. I figure this is a good place to learn about duramax to purchase info.

I have a lead on a extremely clean 07 Silverado 2500HD classic body style crew cab 4x4 LT fully loaded duramax. truck has all options inside including sunroof. Driver seat doesn't show anywear to speak of at all. Truck has 193K on it. One owner salesman that bought it new. All highway miles no trailering. took to dealer for any maintenance which he told me has been alternator replacement with belt and tensioner as well, few of the glowplugs, all new rotors and pads and new tires. Only exterior item i noticed was a paint chip on lower rocker of passenger side.

Anyway, im trying to see if the price he told me is good for the year and miles. What would be market price for a truck like this? Its alot of miles and this is the first diesel purchase i have considered...so wanting to make sure how risky this would be.

Also, truck has the 6 speed allison trans. Another question... these trans.. issues? how long before rebuild typical and how $$ is it to have rebuilt?

What are items to be considered when looking at this many miles on a duramax truck?

Sorry for the slow response really busy of late, What's he asking for it? An 07' LBZ should be in the upper twenties low thirties As long as the truck wasn't abused the Allison shouldn't have to be rebuilt for a long time. 193,000 isn't bad miles on a duramax, as long as the rest of the truck is in good shape.

So far right now, i can get it bought for 15K. Not sure i can knock him down any further. He is selling due to getting a new company truck. the only kncok i noticed was a paint chip along passenger rocker panel..needs to have some paint work done there...otherwise... tip top truck. like new inside.

Truck is stock as stock can be. no mods at all. one owner. all records of maintenance.

canadian black book value puts it around $23000

Kelley blue book values it at $18000 at a dealer

if you can get it for $15000, take it and run

DO A VIN CHECK FIRST!!

there is a vin check section here - but i think they only provide mfg information. You need to vin check with car fax or similar. I have a good relationship with my dealer (i purchase trucks for my work there) he ran a car fax for me. I am about to pay 19,500 for a LBZ crew LT3 with 133k miles.

I wouldn't pay that much for any truck with 194,000 on it.......unless its a BIG TRUCK.

I think someone is being dishonest with you about the truck, I have never heard of rotors going bad, if vehicle is serviced correctly.

Bought it Thursday night. I got every record of maintenance with it including even as simple as oil changes and such. the brakes were done due to previous owner thinking fronts were bad and went ahead and just did full brake job.

If there was anything being hidden, then ill surely find out soon. Truck is in tip top shape and previous owner is good friend to my neighbor. I don't' feel he would sell to me knowingly with issues.

Everything i checked against showed the truck to be worth the price.
