I bought my 93 f150 in 1997 with 40,000 miles, i now got 217,000 and still runs like new! This truck is very Reliable as long as you keep up to date and well maintained. For being an old hunk of truck, its a very nice ride (if you don't mind a little noise on the side) and hauls great. This truck has never let me down. I've had a 07 Chevy 1500 and Ram 1500 (almost NEW work trucks) with less than 200 miles, both tranny's blew at around 124- 135,000 miles, the rams engine even went at 150,000.("these trucks were just for driving state to state with little or no cargo") That leaves me to say that the 93 f150 is more reliable than most newer models trucks.
Better fuel economy, better find ways to improve your Mpg!
I have 190,000 and have little to no
problems. 96,000 I rebuilt the Tran
due to pulling to heavy of a trailor.
replaced a raidator, orignial water
pump just becuse. Also a master
cylinder. I have a V8 5.8L at 180,000
checked the compression and found only
a 2-3 pound difference than spec call
for. I have used PROLONG OIL aditive
every 40,000 and to date use no oil at
3,000 miles. In a 190,000 I have
spent maybe 4,000 in repair including
I have always been a GM onwer. Not
anymore at least as far as trucks go
Maintaining your vechiel is very
inportant This F150 has never left me
stranded. can't say that for GM.
