should we worry about the beefier suspension we are missing in the 250 from the 350?

sales guy is trying to talk us out of it - said the newer one was a rental with enterprise and had 21,000 miles put on it in 7 months and then it sat for many months. it doesn't have a running board or some other things (that we can add) I am not sure if he is talking from honesty or from wanting a possibly bigger commission on the older truck. I get that rentals are beat up - I do... but I'm still not sure

You'd be surprised how nice those air conditioned seats are!!! Our Acadia had heated and cooled seats. When we bought it, I thought it was a useless feature that I was paying for but would never use.

Turns out, we used it all the time! If you have leather, the air conditioned seats are almost a necessity.

I take it he's not a close friend so he's obviously trying to sell the truck he'll make the most money on.

really trying to see how a 4 year older truck is better.. he's touting all the bells and whistles. Hubs only used a couple of the features on his xlt that are not on this one, that we can add - and the other ones, the heated/ac seats and all the other stuff - is just fluff.. (I mean I know they are nice, but it's just one more thing to break down when the warranties run out). we can add the things that are needed like a running board

and I'd agree that heated seats with leather is a must - which these seats are on the 350. I guess I just don't look for all the bells and whistles when we buy - we're more frugal than that. We don't go totally basic, power seats and windows and AC for example.. but we don't need all the extra fun stuff

I hear ya. We didn't get the cooled seats in this truck. The seats are leather, so I wish we did. But we didn't really have a lot of options since we were looking at new trucks that were 2014.

I always like to bypass the salesmen and deal with the fleet mgr to get the EXACT one that I want. We have saved a lot of $ skipping bells and whistles.

Well - I just talked to the hubs - I feel bad he has to get rid of his beautiful f150 - that we nicknamed "the enterprise" when we got it because it was so flashy inside. Blue metallic and just pretty. I hated that he had to get rid of it for us to do this, and the 2015 is really stripped down. I asked him how he felt, and he really does like the green one, which, we had already nick named 'The Hulk" by the way. His happiness is a huge part of this as he is sacrificing his Blue Enterprise. The red, stripped down model, even though newer, isn't as appealing to him. We're moving forward with the 350. AND - I know this is what he wants - so that's important.

Thank you all VERY much again for the input. Greatly appreciated. I promise to post pics when the deed is done

My dad works for Enterprise truck division. It may have been a rental, but chances are pretty high the PM was kept up. Depends on the manager of the area and the renter; most of those trucks are long-term contract rentals and the renter pays the bill if they don't take care of the truck. With the '15, at least you have some warranty left, and 21K miles is not a lot.
