Deal or not?

OK - New here. I hope these types of posts are not frowned upon. If so, I'm
sorry in advance.

OK - I may soon be the proud new owner of an F-150.

Carfax, KBB check out OK. Drives nice.
Here are the details...
2002 F-150 FX4 4WD Supercab 50K miles
Red
No sense in listing options, ya'll probably have a good idea since its
probably all stock for his trim level.
Bedliner, step rails, power this and that

It has a small dent in rear fender that will be fixed by dealer.
Asking $16,900. I would be paying 16,900 less my Ford Contour which he is
offering $1,700 (Not really worth that but thats the games dealers play[1995
Contour GL 5 speed, 112K miles on its last legs POS]).

Is this a good deal for a clean truck?

Red, hmmm, not too sure about red. I never had a red anything before.
Comments on color?

Is there anything particular about this year/model I should be aware of or
check out before doing the deal?

Thanks

Give the exceptional deals that are out there on new trucks if you
shop for them (I have seen new 4x4 1/2ton club cabs for under 23,000
after rebate. Why would you want to pay 17 grand for a 4 year old
truck with no warranty when for 6 or 7 grand more you can get a new
one with a warranty too? Given todays market, I would say that the 02
should go for about 14k or so tops because I doubt if dealer has much
over 10 or 11K in it now. You hold the cards here, not the dealer as
it can sit in his driveway or yours. I have little doubt that if you
start talking about buying a new one from someone else that they will
come down a lot more on price. It would be bad news to pay 17k for a
truck and have the tranny or something go out 6 months later and have
to pay to fix that too.
