Is this Yukon work $3500?

Hi, I've been looking at a 1995 Yukon with 188k miles on it. It is a two door and has a 5.7L in it and the major defects on it is the drivers door is bent up a good bit on the hinges and what not and the rear bumper is pretty rusted up. The park lights seem to stay on aswell. I runs and sounds good the 4wd works aswell. I don't know if it is worth that amount though. I am considering trying to trade my 1993 Ford Ranger for it. It is a 5 speed with 4 inch lift on it. Has a 4.0L in it and has 105k on it. It has brand new lockin lock out hubs on it. The clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, and slave cylinder are all brand new.

The brake light may indicate an ebrake issue or on some vehicles it is even an indicator that the pads/shoes are done. Just FYI. I would suggest a full inspection, the $50-70 may save you a lot down the road. I've made the mistakes of buying used cars without inspections in the past because the price was right and regretted it.

Doesn't sound like a good deal to me.

Well I talked to the owner today and he said he'd want $1500 difference if I'd trade my truck in. I was like "[email protected]#$ that" because I got $3500 in my truck and I ain't going to let it go for $2000.

Has anyone tried to sell a vehicle on eBay?

I might pay $2500 for the Yukon, but I think that's a bit much. $2000 is probably more like it. I don't think you could get $3500 for your Ranger. It sounds like it's probably worth more to you than anyone else because you know all the work it's had lately. It's probably worth $1500-2000.

If I could only do a quick inspection on each, it sounds like the two vehicles would be worth roughly equal amounts.

Rangers, at 105,000 still have a lot of life left in them. the Yukon is coming with $800 to $1000 in body damage and at 188,000 is due to start breaking down.

I would forget the Yukon and either keep the Ranger or sell it outright.

Hope this helps,

Bob
