1989 Ford F150 Lariat 5.0 302 from North America
Great all around truck
I have dropped a drive shaft at 120,000 miles. I replaced the water pump, changed the alternator twice, There is a small oil leak, but not enough to pull the throttle body off and fix it. there is also a small power steering leak, but I think it is just the hose.
This has been the best truck I have ever had. I have put this truck through hell since the first day I've owned it. It still drives really good for what it has been through. On the highway it handles great and I can still get it up to about 115 mph. Off road it handles even better. The suspension isn't as hard as most trucks so it it real easy to go fast on rough terrain. Just because it is two wheel drive doesn't mean you can't go mudding in it either. I'm running BF Goodridge all-terrains on it and I have never been stuck. It will go through some pretty serious mud where my friends have gotten stuck in their four wheel drives. It's great for hitting things too. I have an add on grille guard and a replacement back bumper so I can run over pretty much anything without damaging the truck ex. deer, trees, other cars and hogs. Where I live the deer are extremely overpopulated in town so my truck does a good job of controlling the population, if you know what I mean.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
