Summary:

Bought it expecting trouble, and got less than I expected. A very nice truck

Faults:

I purchased the car on a used car lot for $1000.00 as a project and gift to the wife, who always wanted a big red pick up truck, and this is what I found:

-Starter is grinding after starting, and needs replacement.

-Water pump leaks coolant, and wobbles, so it needs replacement

-Rust in passenger rear wheel well

-Rust on both sides of lower rear cab

-Rust just behind driver front wheel on lower fender.

-Rear seat will not stow properly

-Exhaust leak after cat

-crack in driver exhaust manifold

-Oil pan rot (research found this as common in early 90's)

General Comments:

I bought her as a project fixer upper.

Currently fixed and finished work on all the above except:

-water pump

-starter

-crack in manifold

-exhaust leak.

She looks great now, and I had to have a dealer replace the oil pan, because you have to lift the engine to replace it. That seemed silly to me, but when it is all said and done, if it only costs me 2k to have a working truck for the wife, and she likes it. Then I'm fine with it.

Engine and transmission 302 Automatic
Distance when acquired14000 miles

Previous carFord F150

Summary:

Junk, but is still serving my purpose

Faults:

Front pumkin went, rear went twice, automatic lockouts twice, transmission twice, motor went at about 100,000, general maintenance like U joints brakes lines.

Power window motor, starter three times, cab corners a gas tank, the box rotted so had to replace that which this one 5 months later is rotting just as bad, the motor by the transfer case that controls the 4 wheel drive and the oil pan rotted.

Replaced both leaf springs because they broke.

I'm sure if I sit here long enough I probably could come up with more.

General Comments:

This truck was a nightmare it's a nice looking, riding truck, but I had no luck with it since new. The truck was never beat just driven normal like an everyday driver. Never really hauled anything besides light loads and always took care of it.

Well some things are warranted to go wrong, but there is no way all that went wrong with normal driving with light loads. Its either bad maintenance or you're just plain lying and drove that truck hard.

Summary:

A great vehicle for comfort and durability, but not good on gas

Faults:

I have put over 70,000 miles on this truck in 5 years and have had no major mechanical problems with it. The most annoying is the gas gauge in the front tank stopped working.

General Comments:

Only 12 miles per gallon, but gas was cheaper in 2000 when I bought it. It just keeps on running and works great in 4 wheel drive in the winter. I have never had to replace many items and has never let me down.

Summary:

This has been and is a wonderful truck

Faults:

Transmission rebuilt at 90,000. Dealer said this was normal. Through the years I have replaced normal things, such as Batteries, Tires, Mufflers, Belts, Hoses, Plugs and Wires, and Shocks. In recent years I have replaced the Starter, Alternator, and Windshield, but never any major engine repairs. The engine has always been well maintained with oil and filter changed every 3,000 miles. Still runs great, Strong, and uses no oil. Gets approx. 15mpg.

General Comments:

I bought it for myself, but wife liked it so well it became her truck. She likes to set up high and will never go back to a car. The truck is white in color, garaged and hardly has a scratch on it. If we ever get rid of it. It will probably go to a member of the family. Every one wants Grandmothers truck.
