2007 Ford F150 XL 4.2 V6 from North America
I bought it cheap and it hasn't let me down.
The clock never has worked properly. Not since the day I drove it off the lot has it kept time. It loses about 5 minutes a month.
The alignment was awful from the factory. I started to wonder about it and a quick trip to a tire shop confirmed my suspicions.
It leaked power steering fluid - took it to the dealer and they fixed the seal under warranty.
This truck gets awesome gas mileage - driven easily (60 on the interstate), I have gotten as high as 23 mpg, and I have it heavily loaded (off road bumper, camper shell, etc.)
The engine is powerful enough, if a bit loud. But it is a truck, you should expect that. I worry that the transmission is a weak spot - start off with a heavy load on a hill and you will smell the clutch burn.
The cab is quite roomy and comfortable, I love how much space there is behind the seats (this is a regular cab truck) for storage. The truck doesn't like curves, but I didn't buy it because I wanted a sports car. It handles a load and tows well, and that's really all I care about.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
