Brent Eickhoff I believe you may have misinterpreted the article when you said, "The study revealed that of the vehicles that had more than 200,000 miles, 4.2 percent were an F-250."Actually, I think the that the study found that, of all the F-250s on the road, 4.2 percent have over 200k miles. That is actually even more impressive because it is not a byproduct of the large volume of sales.
