Are you looking to buy a used Ford truck? Bayshore Ford is here to help you find the work truck that will work best for you. While Ford trucks are undoubtedly reliable trucks that can endure the most demanding jobs put in front of them, they still need to be closely inspected when you’re thinking about purchasing one.

There are many factors to consider when buying a used vehicle, and you may need help figuring out where to start. We have created a list of what to look for when inspecting a used Ford truck.

Request Warranty and Service Records

A used Ford truck may still be covered by some of the original owner’s factory warranty. However, you will need the car’s complete service history when it is brought in for repair or routine maintenance. Make sure to ask one of our dealers for a car history report when you come in to check out a used Ford truck on our lot.

Inspect the Tires

Inspection of the tires is essential when buying a used truck to ensure they are in an excellent and safe condition. Make sure that the tires have ample tread, and that all four tires look evenly worn.

Check the Frame

The frame is the body on which the rest of the truck is built on. Visible frame issues may not bother you, but they often lead to severe and expensive problems down the line.

Schedule a Pre-Purchase Inspection

A PPI, or Pre-Purchase Inspection, is often recommended so that you know the used truck you’re eyeing is in the best condition possible. Reach out to our service center to schedule one before you sign on the dotted line.
