I think it's too late now to be asking if it's a good deal or not. Based on what you've written, it's a done deal so even if he overpaid by 100%, nothing can be done about it.

My 2011 F150 XLT 2WD crewcab with 3.5l ecoboost was $28k on the road new. $11k sounds a bit on the high side for 210k km.

210k km is almost death point to many passenger vehicle, I am not sure if OP is serious on what he type in.

Lol these F150 are always sold at 200 km by companies and contractors because thats when they start breaking down and giving problems. Never buy them. I bet the tranny has already started slipping and the balljoints will give out soon. Cylinders are usually already starting to misfire.

I would only pay $3,000 for a truck like this to last me 18 months. Not more than that. Your father just bought someone else's overused garbage.

Don't assume that. Some companies take very very good care of their fleet. A lot of guys are running F150s with well over 300k on them and will drive them for double that.

Only thing to watch out for on the older ecoboost is the misfire, but you just change the plug(s) and you're good to go. The nice things about the fords is the parts are a dime a dozen. So if/when you have problems parts are extremely cheap and easy to source.

How can you set a price on a vehicle based off only the year and mileage? You have not seen the vehicle and don't know the history. In decent condition these trucks are 8-10k all day.

As others have said why even bother to know at this point the deal is done.

In my opinion that’s on the high side, even if it’s a crew cab. If it’s a super cab or regular even more so.

2wd and lots of km’s.

Based on the info you've given and VMR, retail price is $10-15k depending on what cab it is.

But is it in good condition? Is the maintenance up to date? Because that's the difference between 210k km being the end of it's life, or the middle.

Misfiring is not simply spark plug change. Its always a bad cylinder.
False, well kinda. If you leave the misfire problems yes you will need to replace the cylinder, and likely the head or get it machined out. But a lot guys have found the gapping on the plugs is all it takes to fix it. Generally running a higher grade plug and checking every 50k km you should be in tip top shape.

And misfire doesn't not always = bad cylinder, could be number of things, could be injectors, vacuum leak, fuel pump ext, ext.

It sounds like your thinking more about low compression in the cylinder causing the misfire.

If Retail is $10,000-$15,000 on this truck, you could never buy one for $3,000. Not even close.

$11k doesn't sound bad for what you describe. They were around $15k a couple of years ago when I looked at similar aged ones. The $10-15k mentioned above sounds about right. They're relatively bombproof and 200k is not an awfully large mileage for them if well maintained.

Not sure if you are serious. Any car with proper maintenance will do 350K easily, had some GM cars over 400K withno issues. 200K is a half way point these daysmGrinning Face With Smiling Eyes.

Couldn't agree more!! Start with a vehicle with decent reliability, pay attention to your fluids and you should easily do 350K+ km. I just passed 240,000km on my Venza ('09 owned since new) and I figure I'm about half way through its usable life.
