I've found a 2000 dakota r/t, rwd, 5.2 liter, ext. cab that looks good. But it has 225,000 miles. I think I can get it for $2000. Would that be a good deal?
Yes, you are right. It was a close call.Who ever bought it did you a favor--now you don't have to struggle with a decision.
It wasn't the age of the truck that would have bothered me, it was the miles. I know that now-a-days engines & transmissions are way better & last a lot longer than they did when I was young, but 225 is a lot of use.
Be patient (sadly, something I was never good at) & keep your eyes open & something will come up.
Or as low as $25 when I was a kid in the 70's (Was more fun being 20 in the 70's, than it looks like it will be being 70 in the 20's!)Yes, you are right. It was a close call.
At 73 I remember cars being finished at 100,000. One could buy them all day for $50.00.
