I purchased this truck from Advantage Ford with only 8 miles on it in1998 as my work truck. I work in construction so it has seen a little abuse. I have also purchased a few other Ford trucks since then to drive as my family vehicle. I have never had a problem with any of them.
I never thought I would drive a work truck for this many miles without any major breakdowns. This V6 still doen’t burn any oil. I have replaced the spark plugs and wires 3 times, but other than normal wear and tear items like breaks, tires, AC and alternator, this truck is like the Energizer Bunny. Tell me, how long is a muffler system supposed to last? Your putting the muffler shops out of business, not to menton my mechanic’s family is on food stamps.
I have never even painted this truck which is amazing as it has never been garaged. I should have had it painted in 2004 when Francis and Jean blew my truck all over my front yard and dinged it a bit. But being in the construction business I worked seven days a week for months to put our customers back in their homes and businesses. So I never had the time call that famous lizzard to fix it back up. That just gave it that much more character anyway.
I do have one bone to pick with an Engineer of yours, whats the point of installing a 450,000 mile drivers seat in a million mille truck? My but hurts.
Thanks for the quality and ride. Driving with pride. Bill
