Default Trading in a deleted diesel truck

With some of the incentives out there I am considering getting a new F250. I have a 2013 F250 which has been deleted. Am I going to have a problem trading it in? I'm in Florida and when I had it deleted I didn't bring the DPF home but left it at the shop as I never thought I'd ever need it.

I bet youíll have an issue. The fed is really cracking down on delete. If the dealer had any sense they would be checking.

I think you're probably correct.

Anyone interested in a 2013 F250 Platinum, deleted, leveling kit, every available option, 86,000 miles?????

Post it up for sale on FB marketplace or on here someone will buy it if priced correctly thats a low mileage for a diesel very sought after truck should have no problem selling it.

You have to sign a paper saying all the emission equipment is on your trade

In Maryland, even private party used sales will have to pass an inspection to title and register it.

99% chance that truck does not stay on the lot for more than a few days. i would bet it goes straight to auction unless they happen to know someone that has been looking for that truck then they will try and work some way to make a sale so that all parties are happy.

here in florida, they dont seem to care, or at least my dealers do not!

actually had a friend buy a used truck. it was approx 2 years old. he gets it home and ready to delete and tune it, come to find out it had already been done and he found the CTS controller stashed up in the dash where you could not see it.

I know of a big ram dealer in Tennessee that has several deleted trucks for sale on their lot... I bought my truck from them with less than 30k miles and it was already deleted. They even gave me a 1 year warranty on it... which I never needed of course since all the troublesome shit was already removed.

I suggest you keep the truck you have.. or sell it private party... if you really want to trade it in look at dealers used inventory online and see if any of them are selling deleted trucks... they may not advertise it but you can tell from the pictures... missing egr.... aftermarket exhaust... tuner stuck to windshield... there are giveaways.. if they are selling them they will take them in trade.

Never know until you try. I assume each dealer handles trade in's differently.

In FL, when you trade-in a vehicle, you will have to sign a document indicating that you did not tamper with the emissions system. Do people just sign it when they knowingly deleted the truck?

Also, isn't the dealer selling deleted trucks violating federal law?

NY makes you sign a document stating that the emissions system hasnít been tampered with. Looks like FL does the same.

How can someone buy a modern diesel and not be able to tell itís been deleted already?

if the truck has a muffler on it you would have to know what your looking at under the hood

My brother bought a deleted truck from a dealer. He was happy about it. But smart.
He Went to the dealer to to have them install it because he knew that were in the wrong.
they cut him a nice check as a refund instead of reinstalling the emissions stuff.

Most places down here don't care most of the time they just flip them to an auction.

unless your very in tune to the various makes and models of the motors you will never know. there is not always a big screen on the dash. you would never know mine was deleted unless you really knew what the truck was suppose to sound like.

my adjustment is a little tiny black knob under the steering wheel and the interior is black as well. you dont notice it unless your looking for it. it is also not labeled so the average person would know what it is for either.

that paper is just nonsense! you could always say " i didnt touch it" which is not a lie if you bought it that way or if another shop did the delete. it is written poorly leaving loop holes open.

How much do you want for it and what state do you live in?
