I would stay away. Seems the guy is "flipping" the vehicle. You do not know who the real owners were, and it is a 18 model year old truck.
You may be looking at replacing the trans, possibly the engine. It most likely will need new fuel lines and brake lines if the truck spent time in the north. The fuel pump and alternators are easy to replace, but go often in the model truck.
You may consider spending time finding a truck that has been owned by someone for quite a few years, preferably a one owner. I sense the Lucas comment is just one of many unspoken issues to be discovered on this truck.
IMHO- never buy a vehicle from a flipper on Craigslist.
2001 Bonneville SSEi, 219,000 miles.
