Buying a used car can be a scary experience, as can selling one.
A few years ago, Web Watch had reason to sell our 14-year-old truck, after 200,000 miles. The vehicle still ran perfectly fine. We kept up-to-date with oil changes and other maintenance, but it was starting to get some quirks that were becoming more annoying than not.
The sunroof would leak on occasion. The radio was flaky. The dashboard illumination lights were starting to burn out. And we think – but can’t prove – that there was an oil leak that would have been rather costly to repair. The rear passenger door wouldn’t close unless you knew how to shut the door the right way. There were a few other things, but the truck ran great and could get you where you were going. Still, it was time to ditch the truck for something newer and sportier.
