Re: buying a truck and i need advice
If you want something with a manual transmission, the full size market is growing more scarce. If the price is low (or nothing) considering the repair work to get it certified, it might be worth picking up and you should get a few years of driving out of it if it has been maintained properly. Maintenance is key. Most people don't think to change manual transmission fluid, so it's worth while to ask. As vehicles age, parts can be harder to find, which usually increases the cost.
