I'm looking at a 2012 F150 with 250,000 miles on it. 5.0, XLT, CCab, 4wd, longbed. Drives and runs great. No weird noises. Never wrecked. Interior and exterior are clean! It's a former leased fleet vehicle so my gut says it was maintained as it should have been. Does $9,000 sound like a fair price? Is the high mileage a concern for the 5.0?

I currently have 151,000 on my personal 2013 5.0 F150 I bought new and need another truck. This one seems to fit the bill. I've only maintained my own truck and changed the water pump twice in 151,000 miles. So this high mileage one seems like a decent deal...

So does that mean these engines have a mileage limit they turn to junk at?

A fleet vehicle tells me 2 things....yes they were maintained but 2nd they likely had a hard life....since the driver was not the owner...kinda like a rental car, "Who cares". With the mileage of the drivetrain, unless you have done a compression/leakdown test on the engine, checked for all codes (including Mode 6 file which shows all the history), you're running off information in an ad and by guess....and that's just the engine alone....not including the trans, anti-lock brake system, etc......
