Some guys like working on trucks and some can't stand the fact they have to take it in for little things. I for one don't mind what comes with a used SD w/171k miles on it, and is why it cost 9k instead of 50k. I also choose to go new anymore because I just can't afford downtime on my truck. Anyway that truck will have or has had:
Annoying oil leaks, ball joints go bad, power window or lock problems, tranny failure for sure and glow plugs. All in all, everything on the SD is pretty easy to take care of, and no telling how much maintenance the truck previously had.
I have had lots of trucks and the used SD is the only one I would get today if I was looking for used trucks.
I always try to find out how much recent work it has had so you know what could be coming soon.
