Default I found my truck on the net

I traded my old work truck in at the stealership when I bought my Xterra. Since the market is shit for fullsize anything let alone full size work van.I got only 3500.It was a total POS.Trouble once it hit 50k and became a moneypit. I never abused or neglected my truck but I can only take so much when the repairs keep piling on.So I did a search on autotrader and found my truck.I hope the people(suckers) who buy this will have the same luck I did.

Why would you wish that poor luck on somebody? Just because you had bad luck, the only way to make yourself feel better is to hope someone else has the same bad luck?

Ok sucker is a little harsh.How about poor soul.Try spending 5 thousand in a year while you're still paying on the pos.Between a tranny and then spiting out a spark plug.Nope,no more Fords.

I work on a fleet that has a total of about 60 econoline cutaways and e350 vans, we have had problems with them spitting plugs out of the heads but we have had more problems with rear brakes, they eat them like they are going out of style on the disc brake rears. overall most of them are pretty reliable and most of them get the $hit pounded out of them.

I know that these trucks last,that's why I bought it in the first place.Mine was a late blooming lemon and past its shitty warranty
Let me make this clear.This truck is now in perfect condition.Why is this?Well cause I've had every effin thing rebuilt.Have your truck sit in the dealers lot for 4 months waiting for a dealer only part and have FMC not help you at all.Or have FMC say that they don't have a cylinder head problems.Or have the tranny fail @76k.Other than that.it was a great truck.

Nothing wrong buying a domestic,I just wont anymore.
