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 -
STAND BEHIND YOUR PRODUCT.
Boguth it with 25000 miles put 75 on it
in about 3.5 years. Just had to put a
new alternator on it. Other than that
only brakes and general maintenance.
Very very well built truck, still
drives unbelievably tight.
Bought this truck with 92000 miles on
it from a consumer. Truck gave no
problems whatsoever until it reached
121000 miles and without warning the
motor slung a rod thru the oil pan.
Oil had been changed every 3500 miles.
Motor was making no noise until one
morning I went to start it and then is
when the motor went out. Cost of
repairs were $3200. This is the only
trouble I have had with this vehicle.
Up until then I have been very pleased
with this vehicle. Well built, but
could use more horsepower for the
weight of the vehicle. At least it did
give up in my driveway instead of the
Third door, Interior, and body style,
confort and stereo.
