 I purchased this vehicle (2008 Ford F-150 XLT 4WD 139000Miles) in mid June 2013, problems started in early July and grew exponentially until now where my vehicle is inoperable and at the shop with $2580 repair estimate. The vehicle was sold with no warranty of course. Asking price was 12,999 yet I managed to pay $14,999 by way of pre approved loan which they took full advantage of. The owner of this "business" was a Drill Sergeant for the Army, however it appears they have no regard for fellow service members as I believe they sold me a vehicle that they knowingly made "bandaged-up", or to work temporarily. Many dealers do this to save money, they purchase a high mileage vehicle and then put cheap junkyard parts in it and tell a mechanic to get it run for a month or so. I find this practice repulsive. I understand "buyers beware", but their slogan might as well be "Go *beep* yourself, this car will only run for a month then break down. [continued below]....

....... For Good!". I am disgusted by this business and feel a refund or at least $3000 to cover at least part of the troubles I've had as satisfactory. As an active duty member of the armed forces I can attest that they are going to lose a lot of business very soon because no one I know that is a brother/sister in arms to me will be wanting to do business with this fraudulent/abusive auto dealer.

The odometer serves a purpose

AUTHOR: coast - ()

You should always take the odometer reading into consideration when purchasing a used vehicle. That truck has more than double the average mileage of 12000 miles per year. That truck has been driven hard. You should consider yourself lucky that the repair will cost you only $2600.

It's unclear as to why you paid more than the asking price for the truck. WTF?
