Hey guys, I'm looking at getting a used diesel. I'm looking at the years 08'-11'. This is gonna be my first diesel and so I've tried to do my research but, everything I see is all over the place.

I want to stay under $25K and I want something that will last a few years without having any major repairs.

I want to get the most for my money so what years and how many miles should I look for? Obviously, less is more when it comes to miles but, what are guildlines I should follow? What can I expect at +100K?

I just want someone to shed some light. I live in Texas so diesels are everywhere and there is a large selection. I just need some advice from y'all.

Thanks!

11 was the first year of the new motor.
All different compared to 08-10.

Under $25k, you will be looking at something with a lot of miles.
Pushing 100k miles at that point.

+100k miles. DPF will probably need to be replaced sooner than later.
Tranny, diffs will both need new oil.
Coolant will need flushed.


08-10 models had their own sets of issues.
You can go to that forum and do lots of reading.

11 had a few issues, to be expected with a first MY of a new engine.
