1997 Ford F150 4.2 liter from North America
Great truck if there is no intrinsic flaw
Rear window leaked, check engine lights, defective connecting rod (s) all at 62000.
I just wonder if this is a general defect or a freak defect. Have seen 2 other trucks with same problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Yea, I'm thinking the same thing - My window leaked as well - behind the passenger side - and it was like where the seal between the window frame and vehicle come together... the dealer won't fix it - not under warranty he says...whatEVER.
I've been also having nothing but problems with the front end and my motor had to have every gasket in the thing replaced at 76k. : (
I truly believe, if these dealers were more reliable, the vehicles would be as well. I love my truck, I hate the dealer and the problems they create rather than fix.

Same thing with my 97 F150. About 60,000 miles rod started knocking, rear window leaks on passenger side, check engine lights come on intermittently and is now on and flashing. O2 sensor I guess. Current mileage ~154,000
