1993 Ford F150 XLT Flareside 300 six from North America
300 six is the longest lasting motor Ford makes!
Freeze plugs rusted through.
Heater core rusted through.
Fuel tank switch stopped working.
Impossible to change lower curb light bulb.
Seats (driver side) starting to wear.
Floor mat has rubbed through to floor.
AC deflectors have come apart.
Keep your anti-freeze clean and you won't have to pay the dealer $2300 to change rusted freeze plugs.
Fuel tank switch is covered by a recall.
Overall, has been a reliable vehicle.
They could have made the AC vents less flimsy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2.300 for freeze plugs? Man they burned you mean. That's not a hard job and plugs are cheap. Anyway, the 6 inline is a good truck, has the torque to work, just doesn't have take off. It feels like you're driving on sand, but it's OK.
Ford should have put more horse power on the motor to make the truck feel quicker. The motor only comes with 145 hp, but torque is strong at 275, just like the 302 trucks, so that means it can haul the same.
The look to me is way better than these new trucks. The newer trucks look bland and boring to me, specially the ones that look like the Expeditions.
