Default Is this a good deal?

I have a good friend that is selling his 2002 XLT Ranger, extended cab, 4 cyl., 5 speed, with 117,000 miles.

He had it detailed this weekend, a new battery, a new windshield, inspection sticker, and thermostat.


Air blows ice cold, and the clutch is in good condition. The body has the normal wear for an 8 year old truck. Tires are about 10,000 miles old.


I drive about 200 miles a day for work, in a 3/4 ton truck, and was thinking of buying this truck for a semi daily driver, mostly interstate.

Is it worth $4000?



Thanks in advance.



Jim

decent price man. Since it's a friend, I'd ask if he'd take lower. But if not, just leave it be. It is still a decent price, but it is a friend and not jo schmo on the other side of town, ya know?

i'd say its a decent price, i bought an older truck with more miles for $3700, although mine has a bigger engine, i still think you have found a pretty good deal

Being the guy is like me, I'm sure he has taken care of the truck.....and the looks and from driving it, I know it's in good shape.


That being said, I think I'll just go ahead and buy it for what he is asking. I have been looking around here for a couple of months, and I have seen some really outrageous prices on "junk".

I thank you folks for the replies, and I am here to learn.

I would call the guy a good friend.


And, I do realize that this IS an 8 year old vehicle.



Honestly, I just don't know a lot about the Ranger pickups, but we have a couple in our company fleet, and they last for 200k plus miles, and the folks that drive them, well, they drive the heck out of them!!!

I am new here and looking for my first Ranger. I am seeing prices, conditions and production years all over the place. I can't spend more than $4000 and will be buying off a car lot most likely - dealers don't carry 'em old enough for my pocket book. What is too old? Can I believe the odometer? For instance I like this one but it scares me a little too!

1992 FORD RANGER FTX For Sale they claim 108k but the photo of the odometer says 67k

Any advice is appreciated. BTW I have not tried my hand at mechanics yet but I am hoping to learn to maintain it myself.

That odometer shows 06739......and 4 tenths....


Probably more like 206, 739.4 miles.....that odometer has definitely been "rolled over" at least once, and probably twice.
