My first (and last) Ford

ReviewWe bought this mainly as a family vacation vehicle. Plenty of back seat room for the kids, plenty of luggage room in the bed (with a cap), and can still tow the boat. The problem is it stranded us for a couple days on our first long vacation (Ford was no help at all) and broke down right before leaving on another long vacation. Now several unidentafiable rattles have begun. I'd like to get rid of it for a more reliable vehicle, but the incentives on the new ones have really killed the resale value of mine. I thought I was buying one of the most reliable trucks to keep for a long time and now I'm looking for a way out.
Best FeaturesGreat backseat room, tows well, plenty of luggage room in the short bed with a cap on it.
Worst FeaturesReliability and fuel economy. Even with the 4.6L engine I have trouble hitting 19mpg.
