Summary:

Mostly reliable except for rusting

Faults:

Replaced starter twice seems undersized compared to GM products.

Replaced ac condenser

Replaced radiator.

Rust seems to be a major problem mostly isolated to box fenders other 150,s seem to suffer the same fate.

General Comments:

I drove a 1980 Chev C10 for 15 years it was much easier to work on however every vehicle is much more difficult.

I bought my 150 used and generally like it.

The first owner of this truck ordered a big auto transmission. This has only had its fluid changed. I was told by the transmission shop that it is one used in cube vans. I can and have towed car trailers with full sized cars loaded with no problems whatsoever.

Summary:

Good all around truck farm or city.

Faults:

Starter went out multiple times within a year after the truck was 6 years old. The starter in it now has lasted for about 4 years.

Truck has leaked oil from the rear main seal for the past 100,000 miles.

Front tires tend to cup out. Just recently replaced ball joints, U joints, and front shocks. That prevented the odd wearing of front tires.

Display light burned out in the factory radio.

4 wheel drive shift linkage is made of aluminum and breaks easily. Can be replaced with a newer style that is stronger.

General Comments:

The truck has held up very well for being as old as it is with that many miles.

It still has enough power to pull anything we want. We pulled a fully loaded semi in 4 low lock for 1/4 of a mile without struggle.

Summary:

This is the best truck ever built

Faults:

After I purchased the truck, I replaced the radiator (original was in it),due to a slight leak. I also replaced the exhaust with a Dynomax cat back 2.5 inch custom system. Also complete tune up (cap, rotor, plugs, wires, O2 sensor&fuel filter, also K&N air filter.

General Comments:

I bought the truck as a dump hauler, occasional trip to home improvement store.I've owned it for about 3 months, and drive it more and more. It gets 18 MPG and I had it dynod at 225 hp. I bought it from the original owner, who said it has never had any major engine/drivetrain work on it. Not bad for a 13 year old, full sized/v8 truck. I love to drive it and it sounds like a mustang gt.

Summary:

A great car... better with a little tender loving care

Faults:

Needed a new alternator at 140000 miles.

Needed a new voltage regulator at 145000 miles.

Needed a new starter at 147000 miles.

Seats are starting to wear.

Tailgate centerpiece fell off leaving the 6 bolt holes.

General Comments:

This is my first car. I got it as soon as I had my drivers license.

When I first got it it was bone stock.

Over time I turned this slow truck into a street machine. With just the addition of a performance camshaft a new air filter and some exhaust work this truck went from running 19 second quarter miles to running 16 second ones. Now keep in mind this is with a 4.9 in-line six.

And that is not to mention what it can tow. This truck tows campers, trailers, tractors, other cars, anything without a second thought.

This truck is my baby, my first love, and the other woman in my life. I will own this truck forever barring its complete destruction.

Summary:

I will never get rid of it!

Faults:

I have just had the simple repairs. Some bad wires, alternator, and brakes. Nothing was too serious. My brakes had to be fixed due to some hard driving. The other repairs were at 160,000 miles.

General Comments:

This truck is the best truck I have ever had. Everyone wants me to trade it in, but I refuse. It has never let me down. Even when I run out of gas, it will coast to a gas station. We have beat this truck up while hunting and diggin', we even got stuck on top of a boulder. At 173,000 miles, he runs great!!
