My wife and I are looking at buying a 2007 Roadtrek Agile SS 4wd 6 cylinder with 160,000 miles. Well maintained with records. Has some wear and tear but everything seems to work. Asking $45,000. What do you think?
I usually stay away from used 4x4s.
Because you never know how the previous owner used (abused) the 4x4 drive train; was it lightly used on the slippery roads only? or was he into heavy duty off-road expeditions?
4x4 repairs are expensive.
The Sprinter 4x4 might be a bit different...
it is a part time 4x4. ie the front drive train is disengaged all the time,
you have to stop the van to engage it manually.
After you engaged it, if you drive the van above xxx speed,
the 4x4 will disengage automatically.
Of the 4x4 owners I spoke to,
Most of them have never used the 4x4 function. (except during testing).
Well, if the price is right, it might worth a look.
