Too many kilometers?

Could anyone give me their opinion on buying a used truck with high kilometers? I need one for starting a home renovation business and can only afford a used truck at this point.

Welcome to AF on your first post.

Do not give a big price for it.
Or pay the asking price.
A straigh out cash buy without trade in they will come way down off the asking price.
Old green still talks.
Remember.
High mileage knocks the book price way down.
Ask your banker and insurance agent what it is actually worth on the market.
Look it over and check it out.
Take it to a good repair shop and have them check it out for you.
Find the first /seond/or third owners and ask them about it.
Good Luck
A lot of buyers use carfax to run a full check on it.

Lot of mileage left in a high mileage one if it has been serviced good and taken care of.
Check all service history you can find on it.
