1995 Ford F150 XLT 5.0 V8 from North America
The best Ford F-150 truck produced
Fuel line and pump broke on the rear tank.
Passenger side window won't roll back up.
This is the toughest truck Ford has ever built. I have hit 4 deer and not a scratch on it. This truck survived a tornado and a storage unit dropping on it, with only minor scrapes, dents, and a broken windshield. No major damage; the dents are not even that big.
I have driven this truck over 20,000 miles in the past two years. All I have needed to get were a few oil changes and gas. Let me phrase that better; a lot of gas. I have driven this truck to many different states. Towing between 1k-9k worth of weight is no problem. The owner's manual says 5k max tow, but that's a lie. Like I said, 9k was a breeze.
I believe that the death of this truck is going to be rust. I abuse the dang thing, but it won't die.
After 170k miles, you would think there would be engine noise, transmission lock ups, or even A/C or heater problems. I have no engine noise or rattle, the transmission shifts like a breeze with no jerking, my heater will sweat you out on full blast, even in 10 degree weather, and my A/C cools down faster than my mother's 2012 Kia, and keeps me cool in temperatures of 115 degrees.
I would recommend it for anyone. It runs great, it's tough, is very reliable, and pulls like a 250 in a 150 body.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
