Government Auction Bus

Not mine but with the year and mileage thought someone might be interested. The auction is only up to 2K

There's another one that looks the same, also with low mileage, in AZ. The other one might be an '07.

I've heard bad things about the Mercedes engine.

MB engines are great. Until something goes wrong. Then figure on ten to twenty times the parts costs and good luck finding anyone outside an MB dealership who can work on one. They have something like 23 separate computer chips controlling everything plus more sensors than the Space Shuttle. I considered transplanting one into my rig because of the excellent mileage they achieve but after talking to a few diesel techs who universally hated them, decided to go with an all mechanical Cummins.

My 2 cents.

These are barely broke in, and it tells me there is something wrong when I see multiple agencies, in AZ and TX, selling the same type of vehicle especially with such low mileage on both still very nice looking buses with the same engines.

This one (and probably the others) are USAF owned. I think that these are either timed out (which I doubt), or Vehicle Maintenance doesn't want to deal with trying to find proprietary MB equipment to service them.

Both really pleasing to look at and I'd bet they drive nice. The '09 has regular bus seats and a non functioning AC. The '07 has somewhat nicer seats.

The $2,000 is the starting bid for the '09, and bidding begins 12 am on the 12th. The '07 has a $25 starting bid and bidding begins on the 26th of April. These GL auction are often open for bidding for only two days. It's easy to miss them.
