    Looking at buying a 3/4 ton pickup. Lookwed at one today.

    1999 Chevrolet 2500 4x4 shortbed 98,000miles -- $14,200.00

    Drove it around the neighborhood today. Seemed to drive well and looked in above average conditiion. Am planning on having it taken to a mechanic tomorrow.

    What do you think. Is it worth $14k
    Would you be nervous buying a truck with 98,000 miles?


    Talk me out of it if you think I shouldn't bite.

    yeah, I haven't looked at the KBB, but seems a little on the high side from when I had been looking earlier this year.

    e(x)specially with those hight miles

    I passed on the truck. I really need something with fewer miles.

    too many miles on it for that price. Trouble will be just around the corner
