Q: Buying NEW 2016 F250 6.7l diesel, but on lot for 300+ days... potential issues?

asked by on

I'm considering buying a NEW 2016 Ford F250 Platinum 6.7l diesel with approximately 100 miles, but the truck has been on the lot for 300+ days. I would get about a $750 discount, but is it worth potential problems it could have from it sitting for so long vs buying a "newer" one... and what problems could I encounter? Thank you! -JH
