    So he hadn't been around the garages long enough to have known of these pulls ...Smollett related to him?

    It would be like me finding bird poop on my cruiser and then reporting it as a hate crime due to the white substance.

    Wife and I recently paid off a large part of our debt after working our butts off and saving. Now I have a chance to finally by a new truck and I'm scared to death to pull the trigger. I just can't do it!

    That's because deep down, you know the asking price of said vehicle is way out of line for what it is really worth.

    Yes I do. I can't stand it. I've been looking for 2 months and I can't stomach it.

    Yea it's crazy what one cost, we were looking for work week or two ago because one of the truck was being a pos and they couldn't find what needed fixed. Were well into the 60k range for what we needed. And that was downgraded to a gas over diesel.

    I can't afford a new truck. So I'm going to buy a new to me, used truck. Has to fit all the right parameters for me to buy it....and I'm having trouble.

    You should see all the "Super Deals" truck dealers are having in Central Virginia (truck capital of VA)......$55,000 trucks being sold as the norm.

    You're not going to ever see much better rates (new /used) if you're financing.

    I do find kbb.com (and cars4sale.com if willing to buy from individuals) easier sites to use for searching, at least to get to a short list.

    I hear you. I was as close as ever to buying one this morning, but after listening to the salesman talk about certain things, I went back and did my research and found out he was only telling half the truth on the upkeep of the truck and the "fender bender" he deemed a non issue. Yeah sure.

    Buy what you can pay cash for. Buy one 4-5 years old. It will have lost 50-60% of the brand new price. You don’t need a car payment with a daughter starting college and the medical bills from all the stuff your son has been through.

    I'm slow rolling this truck purchase and being very selective. I'm a simple guy and as long as the truck has four wheel drive and power locks and windows I'm good.
