1996 Ford F250 XL 5.8w from North America
The ultimate work machine
Replaced starter @ 200000 km.
New u - joints and a tune up at 210000 km.
I bought this truck at an auction, cheap.
It was an abused oilfield truck and had a rough life. I expected to have to do many repairs, but am shocked at how little it has cost me so far. I don't buy new trucks because the nature of my work is very hard on a vehicle and those first few dings really hurt. My Toyota was reliable, but I always had to baby it. This one I load down with up to 4000 lbs. and go. It's thirsty, but when your lively hood relies on -40 starts and slogging through ice and muskeg, fuel economy is less important to me.
I've not been a ford fan before, but I love this truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
