    Their price was $37,450. After negotiating and about 2 weeks I got it for $27,250 cash and 2 free oil changes. I don’t think it’s a bad deal. 2014 cascadia with all aluminum rims and 441k miles. 455k miles now and zero issues other than a $9 air hose fitting I replaced.

    I appreciate your reply, by no mean a bad deal ,i really hope you will have another 400k without any major issues, just be very rigorous about the maintenance especially the after treatment system, at least every 150-200k miles replace the DPF filters (just give your old one and get the clean one)
    Check the ATS harness for dirt ,muds or snowing winter also about every 250k miles change the 7 injectors (doser) by choice , more luckily you won't have any problems with your ATS which can cost you a tremendous $ .
