1995 Ford F250 XL 351 Gas from North America


Nice smooth well made


New Fan Clutch at 104k.

New Brakes and tires 105k.

Cab corner started to rust 125k.

Dual Gas Tanks had the recall backwash problem, but my VIN # didn't make the recall. I never fixed it, and tracked the fuel use by noting trip mileage.

General Comments:

An F250 with the 351 W and C6 4X4 Dana 60s and 3.56 is an excellent runner. You could literally balance a 5 level tier of champagne glasses on the hood when it idled.

The big neg was the mileage. 10MPG all day highway or city or towing made no difference.

Overdrive with a better gear ratio would be nice.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1995 Ford F250 4X4 5.8 from North America


Very good heavy duty work truck


Rusty gas tanks, rusty frame, rusty brake lines. Most things under the truck are rusted, some severely.

Two spark plugs broke off inside the right hand cylinder head.

General Comments:

Very reliable truck, almost no repairs needed except as noted above.

This truck is not a daily driver, but is used for heavy work such as hauling materials, plowing snow, etc.

For a four wheel drive vehicle, it is very good on tires.

Too bad it has so much rust underneath (body panels are still in good shape)
