Good luck, Maggie!

The more I learn, the more fair it seems, and I really don’t want nor need to spend weeks more haggling over this in the hopes of getting another $1,000-2,000.

I don’t think they’re going to give it, and it’s because of the mileage. It makes no difference that there could be another 200-300 miles on that rig.

I may have found a replacement in the Phoenix area...

This might be a good summer project, out of cotton...

Like a granny square that never ends.

I meant 200,000-300,000.

Some places these engines are believed to go 500,000 miles or better.

I agree, couple of thousand one way or another is just not worth it as long as you are satisfied. Similar to buying a car/truck or house one can spend hours and gets all anxious over what in the long run really is not that much. Now if it were $10k or so difference then I'd be all over a discussion.

Good luck on the possible find.

I agree, and thank you.

One doesnít want to get screwed, neither to screw oneself.

I have disassembled a Mercedes diesel engine (from an older vehicle than yours) and it was built like the proverbial brick outhouse. Unfortunately the owner of that engine had forgotten to check his oil regularly and the engine was toast. His almost immaculate Mercedes 240D, with a rebuilt engine installed, became my daily driver for 200,000 miles. We bought it for $0.25 more than the salvage man's bid.

I have no doubt that a properly cared for Mercedes diesel would run 500,000 miles.

Wow, Mimi, what a deal!

Are you settled into your new place?

No, not fully settled yet. I'm spending a week at the old place packing and cleaning and then the next week at the new place unpacking and figuring out where things go. I already know that I like the new place better.

Tired, but not exhausted this time. The old place will not be sold until I'm done moving. I refuse to move against a deadline ever, ever again.

Well, since you asked . . .



Bullies at the wheel, and global "road rage" poisoning most discussions IMO. Maybe the collective consciousness is reacting to an approaching future bad news event, like a ripple coming back to us in time?

Ta-daaa...mine!

Will pick it up in Phoenix the first week of July.

An 07, almost identical to mine in terms of features but for layout and colors inside, with 140,000 fewer miles on it.

It was meant to be.
