Truck comparisons

Asked by Feb 09, 2016 at 04:38 PM

Question type: General

I'm currently looking for a truck. I need something
that is capable of hauling light loads (i.e. A horse or
two, small firewood loads, etc), halfway decent gas
mileage (14-20 ish) for everyday driving, and not
going to require a ton of maintenance right off the
bat.
I'm generally a dodge fan but really I just need
something reliable. So my questions are pretty
general:
Looking at used trucks, under 100,000 miles good,
bad? Is it gonna start needing parts at that point? I
know gas and Diesel engines age differently as well
as manual vs automatic; but I'm not sure which
generally last longer.
Any information would be helpful and appreciated:)
Thanks!

what years and how much will you spend?????????

65,475

F150 is my recommendation. Just make sure the spark plugs have been changed and not stripped out.

Kelly, Not too picky on years, ideally 15K but no more than 20K

65,475

For $20k you can easily find a low mile pick up that meets your needs. Skip the Dodge and get a Ford, Chevy or even a Toyota Tundra. For what you want a 1/2 ton truck will be enough.
