Ford factory new vehicle warranties don't have to be transferred. The vehicle is what carries the warranty, not the owner.

Different story on extended warranties.

I do all my own maint. I don't keep records. I know when I do everything.
Diesels go at least 7k miles between oil changes. The only things it should've gotten in 60k miles is oil and filter, fuel filters, air filters and maybe brake fluid and trans.
Good luck on the purchase.

I agree with Weldon only I think the original price was over 70K. All the more reason it seems illogical that the previous owner would pay a high price, take excellent cosmetic care of the vehicle and neglect the maintenance on the engine and drive train. Tomorrow, I will implement Dave's idea and try to contact the previous owner. I am feeling much better about this in part due to all of you. Thank you.

Who would buy a truck like that new and not take care of it? It retailed around $60000. new.


Lots of people........drive it for a couple of years and trade it in and save a lot of money on maintenance. Plus dealers have mobile detailers come in to cream puff vehicles so that they look like new even though they came in rough. Just my opinion, but I wouldn’t buy it with no idea on how it was maintained. It would be far from the first vehicle traded in with that mileage with the factory engine oil in it.....

We bought the truck yesterday and drove it 200 miles home. The inside of the box shows signs of wear, but the rest of the truck looks and operates like new. At this point we are real happy with the truck. Thanks for your help with the purchase decision making.

I’m at a loss of how they can inspect anything in the drive train with out a partial tear down. Sounds expensive to me.

The truck I bough near Galveston looked like that. Like the previous owner had hauled bricks or cinderblocks in the rear half of the bed with no mat or bed liner. Not much paint left behind the wheel wells. No dents though.

Got it Rhino lined and it looked like new.
