I bought my Ford in 2002 and have literally driven it high and low and everywhere in between. It has 155,000 miles on it and I've never been stranded on the side of the road, had to rent a car due to service/or repairs, nor had to repaint or wax my car. I'm sure it could use a good detail and wax job now, but I've gone as long as two months w/o washing it! Sure it drinks gas, it's a truck! It's also very comforatble and roomy. The only real complaint I have is I've had to replace the driver side and passenger rear door handles and the center console broke one day when my 200lb+ friend leaned a little too much on it as she climbed in, and sometimes wierd stuff happens w/ the electricity
It's roomy and comfortable and has proven very reliable and pretty durable. Decent sound system and good interior design.
Better door handles, fix the electrical system, and center console design.
