Good deal on a 2500 or stay away?

Jonesboro, AR used 2012 RAM 2500 SLT - Cavenaugh Ford Lincoln, Jonesboro, Truck, 6.7L 6 cyls, Diesel

CARFAX Vehicle History Report for this 2012 RAM 2500 SLT: 3C6UD5DL5CG303726

Carfax is showing three owners and that the " Engine/powertrain computer/module reprogrammed" at 19k miles. Wonder if something is wrong with it?

Otherwise price and mileage are right.

3 owners on a 4 year old vehicle? I'd be leery of that one.

Some of the earlier DPF/DEF emissions systems were known to be problematic on Dodge, Ford and GM diesel trucks, do some searching on that particular year. Things like frequent regens, poor fuel economy, DEF sensor issues come to mind. I am always leery of buying a used vehicle from a car dealer selling a different brand, makes me think the PO got disgusted with his truck and traded it for a different brand. A Ford dealer may not know or may not care to know, about issues with another brand. I have always bought used vehicles from private parties and never had any problems.

I think you are buying trouble with that one. Keep searching.

Alright, went and test drove it and bought it on the spot!

Just kidding. It was a little more used than I'm looking for. Passed on it. Thanks!
