A newbie here: I'm looking at a friend's 2004 118" 2500 Mercedes Cargo, 150k miles about.... Transmission flares slightly between 2-3rd gears (sorta common I've heard and maybe not terminal?) he's asking $8k. It's very clean, stock, red color. Is that a good price? ALSO: Comments welcome on the trans. issue: I've seen remanufactured units with warrantees on eBay for $1500... Thanks all!
