Santos Sanchez My 2000 Explorer sat in my driveway for a year with no maintenance and it started right back up with a new battery. After a basic tune up it was back to normal, still running at 158,000 miles.

Des Prince Is there a dislike button for certain comments? There should be!! Although the new Mustang manual stick shift is a disappointment & the newer F-150 looks like a box with wheels, every Ford I've owned, if looked after, & I do, has been very good & has never broken down.
