My husband and I purchased our first F-150 in the 2000. Little did we know that this was going to be the King of all purchases we had ever made. Our truck gave us a wonderful 11 plus years, and 410,000 plus miles. Yes you read it correctly, 410,000 plus miles for a gas vehicle. Before this vehicle, we thought 200,000 miles was over the limit. Boy were we wrong. We don’t know how many people have been able to achieve this kind of mileage on a F-150 on its original motor, but we did. We are very proud of our Ford purchase.
Well we have had to retire our babe on Jan. 23, 2012. Not because it wore out but because it was stolen on Jan. 4th of this year. We had to make the sad decision to have the insurance company total the truck out. The damages to our truck were more than the truck was worth. Hopefully we will be able to find another F-150 to welcome to our family. We will have to see what we will be able to allocate into our lives.
