Review
Bought new in spring '93 and it's only at 96K now;still looks/runs about as good as new. Beyond regular maintenance we've done no repairs other than replace a cracked clutch slave and deal with the poorly-designed parking brake. All the heat shields have been removed after they started to fall off (or rattle) over the years. Note: this V6 burned about 1 qt oil every 1,500 miles since it was new-- Ford claimed this was "within spec" and it's never really changed. Re-torquing the intake manifold bolts seemed to help for a while, but it certainly didn't stop the oil use.
Favorite Features
Fun to drive, comfortable, long bed great for hauling/camping. Good MPG.
Suggested Improvements
Hopefully they've fixed the bad parking brake and the silly plastic shift rail plugs that led to so many transmission failures. Oil use and intake manifold blow-by have likely been fixed.
