Default Newbie from new england, need opinion

Hey everybody, think im buying my first truck tomorrow, its a dodge ram 1500 quad cab hemi, it has 83,000 miles on it, the body is in great shape, i will be the 3rd owner, carfax was good it was well maintained. There asking $ 16,000 for it and they are not budging, i know they definitly got it for $14,400. Im going to by a extended warranty and i heard those are negotiable also. Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated since im a rookie at this truck stuff, do you think its a good deal?

So I assume it is the one in your information. I say it too much and to buy elsewhere.

Its a nice truck, I think it is just about 2k over priced, the leather does add a bit though. Out of your price range, but I like this one. http://www.artiolidodge.com/used/Dod...32da4bbfcb.htm

Hello and welcome to the forum, glad to have you join us! It is a nice looking truck and for it being 8 years old, the mileage isn't bad at all. I agree, the leather does help but I still think they're asking too much, $15K then maybe, but I'm a haggler lol and they know they're not making near as much off a used truck as opposed to a new one. As for warranties, it's definitely worth it to shop around. I bought my extended warranty even after my factory warranty was up through Chrysler and came out good on the deal but good luck and be sure to keep us posted! Lots of great people and info here, so any help you need, just ask and I hope you enjoy the site!
