What do you think of this price
I was wondering if you could provide me input on a used Sprinter that's for sale locally. It is a 2003 Dodge Sprinter, long wheelbase, 270k miles, 5 cylinder diesel, rear wheel drive, and has a $600 roof rack with ladder that I like. The asking price is $8500, and it looks like there is minimal surface rust. See the description the seller sent me below. Any thoughts or suggestions? I am a bit nervous of the rebuild part, also read that these things will go into 500k if they are taken care of but...?
"I am flexible on price. The back does not have shelves and is empty. There is a divider between the two front seats and the open space area.
It runs really strong but I think the radiator needs to be flushed and an oil change. I put a liter of antifreeze in and noticed the water was rusty. I bought the vehicle a few years ago wrecked at an auction and only had to replace one headlight, bumper, fender, and power steering pump. I have only driven it around to make the repairs. I have just now finished it and never used it for my business. I bought it to use in my painting business but my painters all have their own work vehicles and can carry ladders. We are moving this week and I have decided to just get it fixed and sold. hope this helps. Hope to hear from you. Thanks."
Thank you for any input/thoughts/suggestions,
PS: I know this is pretty open-ended question. It is priced lower than most the ones I have seen around here. Again any input is appreciated.
