I love this truck and would recommend one to anyone
The Mazda transmission in this F-150 chipped a gear at around 100,000 miles. Other than that, I haven't had any problems.
I bought this truck used from a contractor that worked with it every day. He just bought a bigger truck. I have hauled every thing from tractors to motorcycles with this truck and never had a problem. The transmission locked up on it once and after taking it apart, I found that a chip off of one of the gears was the problem. It had well over 100,000 miles on it at the time. I still go four wheeling and use it for a work truck although it has over 150,000 miles on it. It still runs like a champ.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
