Buying a Used Truck

Posted at Wed, Dec 27, 2017 2:15 PM

Ask anyone who owns a pickup truck and they will happily tell you why it’s the best type of vehicle to own. If you’re thinking about buying one, and are considering buying a preowned truck, here is a great list of things to consider before you buy one, courtesy of Tim’s Truck Capital:

?Examine it in daylight. Even a well lit lot can conceal defects.

?Check each opening and body panel joint to see how it fits. Run your hand along the bottom of the doors and check for rusty, hard edges.

?If there are raised spots on the roof, there’s probably rust underneath.

?Examine each tire for signs of leakage or tread wear.

?Look at the coolant fluid. It should be greenish in color. If the fluid has rust in it, chances are the engine will overheat.

?Examine the air filter and engine and see if there is excessive dirt. If you see a large amount of oil or grease deposited on the engine, it’s hasn’t been well cared for.

?Start the engine and listen. If it knocks or thuds, it could have a bad crankshaft. If the idle doesn’t seem right, have it checked by a mechanic.

?Ask for a CarFax report to see if it’s been in a major accident.
