Are there any year models to avoid?

Rather than crawl under it, might be much better to put on lift and use a good light, so you can see underside condition! Obviously, only do that if you want the car and just want to be sure of condition. BOTH CarFax and AutoChek, as one will pick up things other service doesn't. Use candidates
VIN to check service history at dealer and separate data base to check on warranty work, recall remedies, etc. These steps ONLY if you want a specific truck and agree on price, just verifying condition.

If it isn't time to be serious about finding and buying a truck, please be considerate and not waste people's wouldn't like it happening to you!
