2008 Ford F150 XL 4.2 V6 from North America
Nice basic transportation - fantastic deal
My first truck. Was looking to buy a cheap used car and saw ad for a new 2008 F-150 (in Oct 2008) for only $10,500!
I went to the dealer without finishing breakfast and bought it. It had 19 miles on it when I signed the papers - probably 15 of those from my highway test drive.
Air conditioning, lots of room behind the bucket seats, factory bed liner, and some clever little text message system and odometer combo.
I haven't seen any new vehicles that cheap since. Even the little Rangers cost more.
My 94 Festiva lasted 11 years before I sold it. I figure this full size truck will last me at least 12 since I don't load it up any more than I did my Festiva. (Maybe less - the Festiva had 4 passenger seating.)
Not a fast vehicle, but spunky and takes off well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
