Ford - BiG Disappointment
By RodmanC on
1999 Ford F-150 Work 4dr Extended Cab SB
My F150 has been a big letdown. I didn't expect a perfect truck, but come on, Ford quality stinks. I paid $27,000 for my Sport 4X4. I got (all within 3 years): 1. A front bumper rusting - Ford fixed. 2. Side step rails rusting - Ford replaced. 3. Inside of all doors at bottom rusted - Ford repaired. This winter had to remove rust and fix myself or doors would be damaged badly if I waited for spring. The doors still have me worried. 4. Back window now leaks. 5. The front brakes (I do my own) had rusted rotors (after 2 years); that amazed me. 6. I have that faint fatigue crack on the doors from the windows pushing up and causing a crack. Future problem! 7. My back bumper has rust bubbles now.
The truck looks great. Runs good when all of the cylinders are working. The CD changer works well.
Quality, the rust on the body parts. The frame, brake lines, everything that faces the road rusts, rusts and rusts.
