Unreliable after year 5
By cougar10 on
1997 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab SB
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.
