Looking at

Looking at 2006 24" F450 6.0 diesel 8 cyl 166,000 for 5900. They are calling it a mini bus but looks like a shuttle to me Any thoughts? Things to look out for? I sold my handicap van yesterday and someone is suppose to be picking up the cargo trailer today , just because I am flush means I have to be extra careful.

Re: Looking at

Yea-the 6.0's had issues. Once corrected they are fine. Ask if the head gaskets ( or more importantly the head studs ) have been done. I'd pass otherwise.
Short bus/ shuttle bus are pretty interchangeable terms. I'd call something with fiberglass box a shuttle and something with a metal slab side a short bus.

Thank you! I thought the price looked a little too good. This is a car dealership, I doubt if they know.
