Cheap v8 F150 w Transmission Issue: Good Deal or Money Pit?

ANewcomer

Scotty,

Local auto shop has a 2008 F150 crew cab 5.4 for $2300 cash. Said it runs but there is a transmission issue and transmission will need to be replaced within the next year. 200,000 miles on the truck. Is this a good deal for a 2nd vehicle. Not my daily driver.

Thanks!
