S5 Cab with 5200 miles at local dealer.....leaking rear shocks! WTF
I was toying with buying a second hand low mileage S5 cab, but as it turns out the car was in their shop having both rear shocks replaced and the seals on the rear differential changed.
The car was the one turned in by a friend who had put 1500 miles on it and turned it in due to start up LAG.....I was thinking this was a different car as it had 5200 or 5700 miles on it since it was turned in two months ago! They must have been beating the hell out of it to blow two rear shocks and the rear diff seal.
So, I'll stay clear of that car....they are asking $57,000. I'd consider it for $40,000 with warrantee...
