General Comments:

It has been the best investment in a vehicle I have ever made. I drive it hard & put it away wet. I tow a race car all over florida & previously N.Y.

Gas mileage is low (must be the way I drive).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have an F-250 1988. I love it.

Can anyone tell me about the 460 exhaust leaks? What do you do about the exhaust manifolds?

It goes away after about 5 miles of driving.

To the writer of the comment, if it goes away it sounds like the manifold to head bolts need to be tightened. To the person who wrote the review, my 87' went 240,000 hard miles before I traded it in for a new one.

I have a 87 Ford longbed and it has a 7.5 litter and its the best truck I ever had.
