Hi guys, I'm a new member. I want to buy a car via (link removed) but I´m a bit worried about that, just if they are reliable. Is there someone who knows them, or bought a car from them?
What do you think about that? Thanks for answers.

I had my 2008 in white for 11 years and I never had a real issue, just normal things do to wear in tear. Unless you really need AWD, I would stick to the 2WD. There is a lot more that can go wrong with an AWD. I live in Queens, NY and we had some record blizzards in the last 10 years. The 2WD never needed or necessary.

The AWD system is really pretty good. I have had no issues and I have 165k on mine. Have you looked at the vehicle. Gas prices are on the way up and I would let them sweat it out to get a great deal. The price on this one seems high if you ask me. I always look what the trade in value is as that is the max they would likely pay. If it is a small car dealership, they probably bought it at auction for less. Anyone can sell a bad car. I would get a cadillac shop to do a inspection on it if you decide to pull the trigger. Check the front struts and rear shocks/compressor. Those are costly repairs. I am not sure if the 2008 had AFM but I would figure that out. If they do not have maintenance records, like any car, it is a risk. Best of luck.

Never heard of them. The website reads a little strange, like it was written by someone who learned English as a second language. The car is in Oklahoma, are you?

How many miles are on it? Better be below 110K for that price. There are a million 07's out there just like this one. You should plan on 2-3 grand in work on one this age unless you can do it yourself. They are great trucks. Nick

the link has been removed and being reviewed as spam. The site indicated the car was in Oklahoma; the OP's IP address shows to be in Russia.
