Re: Good Buy ?

A new XR6-T ute in Citric Acid comes in at 39,930 at the current pricing. Add a thousand for 18's and it's about 41k

So you save 3 and a half thousand on a car that's 6 months and 8000km old. IMO better off spending the extra couple of thousand and getting a brand new one that you know hasn't been thrashed etc.

Plus it's nicer to have a brand new car rather than an almost brand new car.

No, Ford list the stock XR6 Ute at $34,205 and the stock XR6T ute at $39,675.

XR6 and XR6T Sedans are priced at $38,535 and $45,085 respectively.

there is a waiting list on the XRTs .... nop ...if I was in the market I still wouldn't do it ... that type of car is easily thrashed ..... maybe the manual is about stuffed and the clutch is lying in the shopping centre carpark...

and why is someone selling it and at an apparently low price??

happy with my XRT .... mid 5s to get to 100 hmmm hmm hmmm

AP ... I can say that here can't I ... this is a ute forum eh ...

cheers


ps... I wouldn't buy my ute off me ...

If you have to wait a lengthy period to get a Turbo Ute then perhaps it is a reasonable buy - especially if you can knock the price down (the add mentions the price is neg.). The Ute definitely looks the Biz lowered with 18's - I should of gone for the 18's myself!

Re: Good Buy ?

could be a good reason for the sale.. not using it enough maybe?? needs the funds... but then he is keeping the plates maybe for another turbo.. so what is wrong with this one then?

Re: Good Buy ?

Sounds alright, maybe it has been thrashed maybe it aint. It would still have warranty on it anyway so wats the big deal.
