im looking for a good priced first truck. what kind should i get and where can i find one? preferably $5000 and under?
You can search this site, carsforsale.com, and cars.com. My personal preference on trucks is Chevy. I have a 2003 S10 Pick Up that was a delivery truck at my job. It's got 278,000 miles on it and runs like a champ. My Nephew and Sister both have Chevy Silverados. An '03 and '07. Both have been good trucks as well. My Sister's '07 did have to have the transmission repaired last year but it was covered by her new car warranty. My Nephew's '03 has had no problems. It's got well over 100,000 miles on it now. Just normal maintenance stuff. Brakes and tires. Ford F Series and Rangers are good too. Most people I know with them have good things to say about them. Good luck with your search. HTH. -Jim
