Is this as good a deal as it seems?
We are looking for a truck to pull our camper in the summer and to use around town (80 tow, 20 town) only to the tune of 5 to 10 K annually. Up until today I was pretty much settled on a 6 or 8.1 gasser. However, I just looked at a 2005 duramax, senior owned ( he was also a truck driver all his life) so the unit is mint, run only on synthetic oil. 240,000 km (144,000 miles), 90% hwy, loaded with leather, Bose, DVD, power everything and he will sell it for $16,500 Canadian. My only concern is that I am tall and have to lean the seat way back so my head doesn't touch the ceiling (it has a sunroof which drops the ceiling height). Two ?'s: Is this as good a deal as it seems? And can you lower the seats some other way?
