    The prices are painful. Fairway Ford in Ohio advertises F150s at 20-25% off MSRP. It makes it hard to buy a used on one for $25k, when you can get a new one for the low $30s.

    Don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings here but I never have felt sorry for lawyers or car dealers

    I purchased my boat before I had anything to tow it with. I have to have it towed home and parked in the driveway buy the seller. I took me 4 months to find a good deal on a truck. I finally found a 1999 Chevy Suburban with 72,000 miles. I paid 5 grand for it back in 2013. I still drive it today and it has been to Seattle Washington and Washington DC. She now has 129,000 and still drives like a dream. Only thing I replaced was the radiator. When I see the prices of new trucks I simply gasp at the prices. I will buy another one when gas gets back up to $4 a gallon and brings those prices way down like the last go round.

    I don't blink on vehicle miles when I own them. Bought the Traverse with 80K on her. Now has 140K and the only thing I did was replace the alternator. Although while I was in there and had to remove the serpentine belt anyway, I also replaced the water pump and flushed the coolant system. This spring I need to replace the spark plugs and replace the torsion bar end links. I'll drive it another 100K. Although we may be looking at a 5th wheel and that means I need a truck. Might be getting a 3/4ton by Memorial day. 3/4 tons are hard to come by used around me. Not many sold out-right and even fewer are traded in while they are still young.

    Well the Ford dealer is giving me 39,000 trade in on my 2015 F-150 Lariat with 20,000 miles. Most don't even need a tune up till 100,000 or more! My first car needed points at about 10,000 and plugs at 20,000 wires at 40, - 50,000. By 100,000 it was ready for rings. I changed the oil every 3,000! Now 5, - 7,000.

    I own a 2010 F150 with the 5.4L. It just kicked over 188,000 miles. I bought it new on July 1st of 2010. Had to rebuild the limited slip in the rearend at 110k. Did plugs at 125K. Had to replace an O2 sensor. Change the oil every 5K and rotate the tires every 5k. Only put brakes on it once. I am on my 4th set of tires due to the amount of miles I put on it. Still running strong and still looks good except for a little cab corner rust. Overall been very pleased.

    As a mechanic I see a lot of vehicles. I see many that have 200-300k miles. I have one I keep serviced that has 480+ k. Vehicles are made better for the most part. The prices are tough but they are definitely.

    I had 94 chey 4x4 go 350K and never did anything to it and still have a 99 chevy with over 360K that has never had any oil added to it or anything major. 100K would not scare me on a chey IF I KNOW IT HAS BEEN WELL MAINTAINED.
