    Look for a Apu and Idle hours. Of course oil samples and a dyno as well.

    I wouldn't think about getting an emmissions truck with that sort of miles on it for that price.

    They don't seem to be worth much after 400 to 500k

    Course. At the same time. I'd have a hard time with newer since the ac uses r1234 now. And that crap is expensive.

    Old post I know, but personally I’d buy one. Go price a Peterbilt or Kenworth that new with that mileage. Are they really worth another $20,000? No of course not. Freightliner’s aren’t cool and I would prefer something different but financially they are the smartest move a Owner Operator can make I’m convinced.

    Go look at what a 2015 Freightliner is priced at and then look at the 389s or W9s, pretty serious difference in resale value last I saw.

    True. I like to have a truck paid for in 3 years since that’s as long as I can depreciate it. Buying a cheaper Freightliner allows me to easily do that and have it paid for in 3 years once I’m ready to sell it and get a newer one. Of course I could do that too with a Pete or KW, but my payment would increase quite a bit every month.

    I guess it’s personal preference really. My resale value isn’t as high of course, but I didn’t pay as much to start with either and it just works easier for me. If I made better I could afford better I suppose, although I have better places to put my money rather than a pretty truck. :biggrin_255:

    It's all personal preference, some people don't mind eating that extra in resale value figuring you make it back in fuel savings. I'll stick with my 20 plus year old stuff that doesn't take 3 men and a boy to figure out what's wrong with it.
