By Chance

This summer I was without a car and was looking for a vehicle. My budget was tight and I had to find something that would A) be reliable and B) pull a 3500lbs boat. I was not looking at Expeditions but I found this one on the lot, the man was practically giving it away. $3800 later, I am now driving the best vehicle any of my family has ever owned. It truly is a go anywhere, do anything machine. It’s not just a machine, it’s a member of our family. Between being able to stuff 2 kayaks in the cab, to pulling our boat, to moving it really has done us well. 165K miles on the original motor and trans and still tight as a drum. I speak for all of my family when I say we will never sell this truck. Thank you Ford for making something that isn’t just four wheels and an engine. Thank you for making a friend.
