My family purchased this truck new for my brother. My brother didn't like it so my dad drove it and when I got my license I inherited this pile of junk (it was 10 years old). When i first started driving it it was ok but lately its been making sudden jerks and noises. After i drive it for a little bit the motor keeps on making noise. The temperature gauge has caused it to die. I have to hit the tailgate to open it. My family has only had Chevys before this and we are all going back to Chevys. Built Ford Tough is a big understatement. I can't wait to get something nicer.
Well the only thing is the interior holds up decently over many years.
Well the newer ones look ok but make sure they are reliable for many years because many people like to keep their vehicles for long amounts of time.
I purchased this vehicle not even a yr ago, had been driving Fords for over 20 yrs with my job. But will never again purchase a Ford product until they make a engine that is reliable again. What a disappointment. Ford, you can do better or else stand by your product. 4.2 liter engine a bust.
Shortly aftr purchasing this vehicle
(it was used) I discovered it had a
problem with maintaining adequate oil
pressure. The truck had only 39000
miles on the clock! A local Ford
dealer as well as an independant
mechanic told me the engine was shot
and they would gladly replace it for
3500 - 3800 dollars. Ford Motor Co.
refused to make a good faith adjustment
for a problem that was clearly a
defect. This will definately be the
last Ford product I'll ever own. It
will be my life's mission to discourage
anyone else I know from ever buying
The wheels didn't fall off...yet.
Build a vehicle with the quality found
in Japanese cars. My other car is a
1997 Toyota Avalon. It currently has
nearly 90K miles and is flawless. FORD -
