    Hello. I wanted to know what would be the best option in leasing to own my 2012 Freightliner cascadia with 600k miles. It’s in great condition currently. How much should I charge? Stipulations? I own the truck and have the title. Please give realistic help or advice if possible. I want to sell it but don’t mind a lease to own. Should I cover any repairs? Should I ask for monthly payment or weekly?

    Find a sucker to give you about 35K take the money and run, 600K most of the good money low maintenance miles are gone, whats up front is big repair bills, Ant driver knowing what he is doing will run from you.,

    Well I’ve put about 10k worth of work into it within 6 months. New radiator, def, and many other items that were covered by a truck warranty I had that expired recently. Can’t find anyone that can pay 22k for it lol

    I understand. Tough sell right now, maybe put a driver in it and run it.

    Don’t lease purchase it . Keep trying to sell it.
    That truck is ready to blow up. 2012 was one of the worst years for emmision trucks and I’m amazed it made it to 600k without an inframe yet. I’ve seen many blow at 300k. You will regret lease purchasing it. The person willing to do it will be broke with no credit and you’ll be getting the truck back after the first major break down Eating the repair which could cost more than the trucks worth if the engine goes.

    They may take it to a dealer to have whatever breaks 1st and walk away leaving you to pay a bill that is what truck is worth?

    Forget the lease to own option, too much risk, cost and liability as long as the title is in your name. Truck Paper has 2012's with your mileage for anywhere from $20,000 to $30,000 retail.

    just so you know freightliners are garbage trucks and i dont meant a truck that picks up your garbage. its also a bad time to get rid of trucks many are going out of business and trucks are hitting the market in droves. its driving prices down. best option is sit on it till things pick back up and rates go back up or sell it for 10 to 15k and be done with it.
