This is great advice. I have bought several *new* cars sight-unseen, but I would not risk it when buying a used car, even one with only 3000 miles. The cost of the 3rd party inspection would have been less than the $600 he is out for the repairs. (Of course, he would not have the truck, either...)

Worked for me. Dealer denied a claim, so I called the customer service hotline. Got a regional rep who was very understanding. And my claim was for the stupid graphics. Needless to say, they are being replaced under warranty and I’m also being taken care of. It’s worth a shot to give them a call.

Ill give them a call, the dealer is denying everything even with the substantial evidence I have. The general manager even went out of the way to say "we're an honest dealership". dickhead

Yeah the truck only had 3k miles on it, but it was a 2017 (going on two year old since built truck) and they were still asking $61,xxx. Then I discovered the truck was a Missouri truck, bought at auction rather than traded in locally. Then there's the, why doesn't this dealer certify it? There were too many red flags for my liking.

No offense OP, but when they received a phone call from a prospective California buyer, who wasn't even going to check the truck out in person or send a company out to inspect it, they were thinking this is gonna be the easiest sale they've ever had. For future reference, hire a 3rd party company to inspect the vehicle that way you know what you're getting.
lesson learned. They actually budged on the price for me so I thought I was getting a good deal until all this garbage started happening.

This truck is pretty darn well protected. I did see the original post also. Im shocked by how mud could get up in the fans/intercooler area so easily? Even at raptor assault? Im sure ford beat this truck also. Just puzzled.

Apparently it's a common problem but hell if I know. I think it's because the intercooler and its fans sit directly behind the front bumper.

Maybe I need to take mine on more muddy roads. If your following someone very close, maybe you would have minor issues. I will just continue to have fun with mine.

At no point in the original post did it say that the buyer did not personally inspect the vehicle prior to purchase. There is no way Iíd ever buy a used vehicle without looking it over carefully. Caveat emptor.

By the way, I have a sweet 2004 Ford Lightning for sale. $16,000. Send cash and Iíll ship it to you.

He said in his post he had it shipped to him from another state.

Mud gets everywhere. Most of the dozen or so Raptors at Raptor Assault had serious fan noise from the IC by the end of the day.
