Buying From Dealership

Folks,
Will be buying a Ford 250 diesel in the spring, probably 15 up. Want to buy from private party. Pickins are slim goin that route for what I'm lookin for.
Would like opinions on buying a used truck traded in to a dealership from a state, federal, or rental agency.
Thankx
Rick

Check out Enterprise Car Sales.
I can't say enough about the process. So easy, makes you wanna slap your mama. Well maintained vehicles.
My 16 had 20k on the clock, maintenance records, was in like new condition.
20k off the same current model on dealers lots. Gave me more than fair trade in value on my 03.

I've heard getting them from a rental/lease agency is pretty good. Typically they stay on top of maintenance/repairs and normally keep records.

If you saw how I drove a rental car, you may change your tune.

Yeah, but likely had better maintenance than buying it from a 20 year old.

I've had good luck buying vehicles off lease. Most lease owners take good care of the vehicles because the dealership requires they stay on top of maintenance since it is still owned by the dealer. Also, when the lease vehicle comes back, things like any chips in the windows or other damage has to be repaired by the lessor before giving back the vehicle. Just buying a other used vehicle none of that will be fixed by the previous owner if they plan on selling it.
