Been doing a lot of reading on them as I was initially quoted a 2.5 ton/13 seer Goodman outside condenser unit...I think this is blown out of proportion.
They seemed to have had some issues 4-8 years ago, but most seemed to be due to bad installs. More specific...

In Florence: Trattoria Acquacotta and Trattoria Gargani. Gargani has a killer atmosphere; mostly locals and when we were there the owner knew everyone who walked through the door. Skip the Fiorentina if you go...they don't give you the filet side and it's pricey. Everything else was great.

Personally, I think he's already got that boat priced pretty low. If you were to buy an identical Blue Wave to that one brand new it would set you back $60+. I'd maybe offer $42k and see what he counters with then go from there. That's all just me guessing though, I don't know what Nada is on that b...

4.7 or 5.7? Big difference there. I wouldn't want to pull a fifth wheel with the 4.7 personally...plus I thought they quit making it in 2012?
Anyway, you can always upgrade the final drive to 3.55 with an LSD or 3.92s at the dealership. 3.21's will be fine though if it's the 8 speed transmission,...

If you don't think the same is true for GMC, then you're delusional. They may hold value a little better, but the difference is marginal.
