Fixed Or Repaired Daily

ReviewThis truck has a real quality problem and is poorly engineered as a work vehicle. From day one, the front brakes would stick. Ford could never fix them. From 40K miles, leaks sprang up everywhere; valve guides, main seal, A/C compressor, rear axle, pinion seal, clutch slave cylinder, master cylinder, and a rusted gas tank. The engine bay is cluttered and hard to work on. The fuel filter is in a bad spot for replacement. Very poor torque from a standing start. Many other problems that seem to be the result of Ford trying new ideas and materials that didn't work out.
Best FeaturesOne nice thing is that it has 2 fuel tanks and if a pump were to go bad, you can switch to the other tank.
Worst FeaturesVery poor manual transmission ratios. It needs lower 1st, 2nd, and reverse ratios. If you like to burn rubber, hit the gas and let her rip. But if you handle heavy loads and trailers, or work on inclines, it stalls too easily. Also, bring back the 4.56 axle ratio.
