This is a great work or family truck, that runs better when put under duress
At around 70,000 I had to replace the battery. However, if you buy this truck at a Ford dealer I would recommend to buy the extended warranty. With the battery going out, the warranty paid for the free towing and diagnosis of the truck. All I paid for was the battery.
This truck does however go through lots of oil. I also recommend paying attention to the routine maintenance that needs to be done. When you over extend the time needed for a tune-up the gas mileage goes down hill.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
